Northwave Typhoon Evo SBS £164.99

Decent carbon-soled road shoes

BikeRadar score3/5

The Typhoon’s carbon sole feels thinner than most and very stiff, but still includes one heel and two mid-sole vents, and also accepts a Speedplay adaptor. 

Pristinely white perforated microfibre uppers with small mesh panels and a toe vent look classy, are tough, spacious and secure, though we couldn’t quite fasten the ankle ratchet tight enough. 

The tongue is well cushioned and vented, and the buckle has a single click release for fine adjustment. A little weighty for the price, but these perform well for those with long, average width feet.
