Our review

A bit heavy but otherwise good shoes if your feet are the right shape

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.
