TORBAL (Torsional Balance) improves balance and bike control by letting the heel section accommodate some lateral movement, while optimizing pedalling efficiency at the sole/cleat interface. Flexibility better connects the rider and pedal with what the bicycle is doing underfoot, while maintaining comfort and flexibility through all ranges of rider motion.
For the extreme demands of gravity-assisted riding. Specifically designed outsole, result of the cooperation of Shimano and Michelin: this sole is characterised by two zones of different density and a strategically placed knob pattern for better grip without compromising pedalling efficiency.
The Boa System offers infinite adjustment for a glove-like fit with on-the-fly one-handed adjustments and convenient fast release. The shoes are mud and water resistant and extremely light.
Shimano shoes (except the GORE-TEX™ models) run narrow and may be smaller than expected. The best solution is to order one size larger than usual.
