    “Great all-around shoe with style to boot”

    The Good:

    recessed cleat, velcro, looks, stealth rubber, comfort, walkability

    The Bad:

    flexible, hot on long rides, a little on the heavy side

    Overall Review:

    Recessed cleat stays out of the way when walking, however this can prove troublesome when clipping in. They look rad. The velcro strap is a nice detail and functions quite well. These shoes are great for freeride, downhill, and even cross country. Or just standing around and looking good. I would recommend them most for freeride applications, as they are not as stiff as most XC riders want, and can be pretty hot on longer rides.

    “Great shoe with some minor draw backs.”

    The Good:

    The shoes provide good traction when unclipped. They are comfortable and durable. I really like the laces with the velcro strap over top.

    The Bad:

    I feel at times when there is some dirt in and around the cleat it causes some issues when trying to clip in. The clip opening could be wider and a shim to bring it out the cleat would also we useful.

    Overall Review:

    Good shoe, good price, has some issues with clipping in when there is thick mud in the cleat opening. I would higly recommend this shoe to anyone to races, does shuttles, or is a bike park rat.
