The stylish Louis Garneau Revo XR3 is an impressive offering. It covers all the bases, is feature packed and has performance in spades. Synthetic leather and mesh uppers and nylon sole are expected at this price, but the detailing sets this shoe apart.
The micro-adjust ratchet and Velcro straps enable excellent foot retention, while the reinforced heel and roomy toe box combine with a comfortable tongue for great support and feel on the bike. The Revo isn’t the most generous for length but we had no problems achieving a good fit
The sole has seven toe and mid-sole air vents but still manages to be stiff enough to perform well under hard acceleration. Like its 1980s Ford namesake, the XR3 is a budget racer that’ll put a smile on your face. While not ultimately having the stiffest sole, it copes admirably with most riding demands, and still manages to be fast and very comfortable.
