With bright visuals, strong detailing and graphics, the Reflex offers a light, comfortable and well fitting (for this wide-footed tester) shoe.

Stiff soled without being punishing, it has a nice and sturdy heel, which reduces lift and eliminates rub.

During damp, cold rides they were warm enough and, coupled with overshoes, were good through the winter months.
