Our review

Comfy shoes for dirt jumping, pump tracks or just playing in the woods, but not ideal for serious trail riding
Buy if, You need a pair of shoes for pump tracks, dirt jumps or riding in the woods
Pros: I like the bright colour (though not everyone will!), they're comfy on and off the bike, good level of grip for dirt jumping and pump tracks
Cons: Lacking in support for longer rides and I’d want more grip for hardcore trail riding or racing

If you’re not a massive fan of the bulky look of Five Tens and can look past the mustard-yellow colour of the Scott FR 10s (they do come in a more subtle blue too) they’re worth checking out, especially if you prefer to play in the woods rather than hammer out the miles.

While they’re comfy enough to wear as sturdy everyday trainers, with enough flex to prevent heel slip when wandering around, they work well on the bike too.

Traction on the pedals doesn’t come close to that of Five Ten’s benchmark ‘Stealth’ rubber, so if you like to feel glued to the pins you may want to look elsewhere.

But if you’re into riding dirt jumps, pump tracks or simply razzing about in the woods and like to be able to readjust your feet on the pedals, the FR 10s should be right up your street, allowing more on-the-pedal movement while still providing just enough grip when it matters.

This does make them rather specific shoes, though.

They’re not ideal for big days on the trail or tackling particularly bumpy tracks, and the mesh panels on the toe and sides mean that water gets in pretty quickly too.
