Shimano XC3 SPD MTB ShoesWhether dipping your toes into the world of cyclocross and XC mountain bike racing or for all-day off-road trail riding adventures, the Shimano XC3 SPD MTB Shoes ensure pedalling comfort and efficient power transfer. A brilliant entry-level off-road cycling shoe, the XC3 SPD MTB Shoes feature key technologies from higher price point shoes to ensure you enjoy rapid progress across any rough terrain while delivering all-day comfort too.Dynalast Performance ComfortStarting with comfort, this is delivered via the Dynalast design, a single piece synthetic leather upper design that wraps the foot snugly. This offers a firm hold, foot stability and an optimized toe-spring section that ensures the most efficient and powerful pedal stroke possible with reduced fatigue over long distances. Perforations across the shoe keep your feet fresh too. The low-profile L6 dial gives you quick and easy adjustment of the fit, even on the bike. And at the end of your ride, it’s simple to loosen the shoe to kick them off.Efficiently FastThe XC3s get you where you’re going with minimum fuss and optimal efficiency thanks to a lightweight glass-fibre reinforced nylon sole. This rates 5 out of 12 on Shimano’s stiffness scale, allowing you to get power to the pedals with minimal power loss. But at the same time, it has enough flex to soak up bumps and vibrations from the terrain, enhancing comfort when you’re riding off-road. They also feature a seamless midsole construction. This brings your foot closer to the pedal axles, giving a more natural pedal stroke and again maximising power transfer. And with the open tread design, you’ll enjoy excellent grip when you’re off the bike.
