Great value race shoe for serious riding
Skip to view product specifications

A real carbon sole for £85? The pose factor alone will sell lots of pairs, but that’s missing the point. Weighing in at 351g each, this is a true race shoe.


The carbon sole is exceptionally stiff, enabling fantastic power transfer, and the ratchet holds your foot tight. There’s also a clever half-step release in case you overdo it. The fit is firm and narrow, except for the slightly taller toe box.


The RCs are compatible with three-bolt systems (Look, Time, SPD-SL and Speedplay), and the vented sole also features a cleat grip, surface, heel and toe grips. Another DHB hit.
