With the top end performance road shoes tipping well over the two, three and, in the case of the Specialized S-Works Exos, four hundred pound price bracket it can be easy to assume that lower budget price tags will be a big compromise. At less than half the price of some of the best cycling shoes, the Cube RD Sydrix Pro shoes prove that sometimes good things can come in much smaller financial packets.
