DHB RC Carbon road shoes review
With a full-carbon sole, these shoes seem excellent value at less than £90. Supple synthetic leather uppers and a well-shaped tongue (fastened by a ratchet system and two Velcro straps), plus an externally reinforced heel, make for a very secure, if rather tight, fit.
The carbon sole chipped before we got on the bike. It’s ultra-stiff, with excellent power delivery, but let down by the insole. This felt quite thin and was non-perforated, which negates any cooling effect of the sole air vent. Still, with the cash saved buying the shoes you could afford to replace the insoles.
