BikeRadar score4/5

The MXTs are tough, light (just 755g a pair) and secure cross-country racing style shoes.

The three velcro fastening straps across the top make for a snug, comfortable fit and the polyamide (a type of plastic) soles are a great compromise between efficient stiffness for pedalling performance and casual grip for walking on softer surfaces. There are also threaded holes for extra studs at the toes, and cleats for all pedals will fit the soles. The uppers are synthetic, ventilation is good, the padded tongue makes the shoes very comfy and they come in size 5 to 12.

Freelance Writer, UK
Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
