Designed for competitive XC riders, the Shimano SH-XC70 MTB Shoes provide maximum stability, power transfer and comfort, thanks to Custom-Fit technology. Heat moldable upper and insole gives anatomic comfort and a precision fit to increase pedaling efficiency. Lightweight carbon cleat plate with reinforced midsole shank is ultra-stiff and its lower stack height offers superior energy transfer. Synthetic leather upper is lighter, thinner and more durable than natural leather and features a Cross X Strap to eliminate pressure when you kick the ground or push your bike uphill. Shimano Dynalast XC reduces power loss on long rides and anti-slip heel lining prevents heel lift while pedaling. Dual offset straps with micro-adjust ratchet give a snug, pressure-free fit.
