Technically this isn’t even a bike shoe. Stay with us though, as the Dæscent uses Five Ten’s incredibly sticky Stealth rubber.
The outsole extends around the toe and rand for extra protection for your forefoot, and the Dæscents are far lighter than Five Ten’s cycling shoes, making them better suited to time off the bike.
The upper is acombination of synthetic suede and heavy duty nylon mesh. We’ve been using them for six months and, while not waterproof, they drain and dry well – and they’re very nice to wear when the weather’s blazing.
