Cycling Weekly Verdict

A great pair of shoes that are ideal for powerful riders or sprinters owing to exceptional stiffness. I would prefer to see a two-way Boa Dial and i feel the fit could be improved slightly to stop the Boa digging in the top of the foot and side of the shoe rubbing the inside ankle.
