Trek has finally overhauled its road cycling shoe lineup with three new pairs of performance kicks - the RSL Knit, the RSL and the Velocis road shoes. The American brand says its new technology represents 'innovative design complemented by a forward-looking aesthetic'.

We first spotted the new Trek RSL and Trek RSL Knit road shoes on the feet of Lidl-Trek riders a few weeks back - but now we have the details without speculation. So how do they stack up against hot competition from the likes of Specialized and Quoc, and are they really worth the hefty $499.99/£399.99 price tag?
