A great shoe for gravel riding needs attributes of both road and mountain shoes. Equally at home on gravel, XC trails or all-day adventures. We borrowed technology from our X-Project so that neither walkability or pedaling stiffness suffer. Then cut the upper from a durable 1-piece synthetic leather and added perforations to let feet breathe. A single L6 BOA closure provides equal pressure across the instep. Extra toe protection helps with errant stones and any extended or uphill hikes. A short EVA insert at the heel provides noticeable vibration damping to reduce fatigue on longer rides over rough roads.
Mountain bikers who ride flat pedals deserve shoes with as much advanced technology as those who ride clipless, which is why we developed this flat pedal shoe with a BOA® Fit System to provide unrivaled fit and comfort. The redesigned Launch Flat builds on everything we love about riding flat pedals: freedom of movement, versatility, walkability, and kicks all the downsides to the curb. The Launch uses a lightweight, quick-drying upper, constructed from durable Cordura® fabric made with recycled content. We partnered with the rubber experts at Goodyear® to develop a tread compound that’s both sticky and long-wearing for our PinLoc Outsole™, which is wider for more surface contact and uses a chevron tread design to capture pedal pins, keeping your feet planted and in control.
Extremely versatile, this lace-up cycling shoe makes the easy transition from hike-a-bike sections to pedaling. A composite shank through the midsole connects directly to SPD pedal systems and provides necessary stiffness to prevent foot fatigue while pedaling. Run shoe EVA provides comfortable cushioning off the bike and the recessed cleat design allows for natural walking performance.
We took the clean, modern aesthetic of our best selling road style and amplified the materials and construction to endure the challenging environment of indoor cycling. The result is a cycling shoe specifically engineered to perform in hot, humid conditions.
