Offset Straps - Unlike conventional closures, Shimano's anatomically precise offset straps relieve tension at the highest point of the foot, where pressure tends to be greatest.
Cross X Straps - Our Cross-X strap system is built for the on-foot challenges of off-road riding with the real-world need of alleviating pressure when off the bike.
BOA - Boa closures offer infinite adjustment for glove-like fit. On-the-fly, one-handed adjustments, secure locking and fast release. Sheds mud and water while saving weight.
Quick Dry Mesh - Shimano has developed the new frontier of moisture control with our 3D mesh: three layers that control temperature, wick away moisture and ensure an ideal fit. 3D dry mesh keeps your feet comfortable and your ride moving forward.
Rovenica - The composition of Rovenica is more similar to genuine leather than other materials. Rovenica does not have voids and pockets that absorb water, staying light and quick even in the rain. Rovenica consistently returns to its original shape and size after being stretched.
Avail 100 - While being flexible, Teijin Avail 100 also provides a highly rigid fit. Power loss is reduced and pedaling efficiency is improved, thanks to this material's superior shape-retention characteristics and a rigid layer that suppresses elongation.
Shimano Dynalast - An optimized shoe last: The toe-spring section of a cycling shoe plays a key role in supporting efficient pedaling. Too high, and it causes increased tension in the plantar, calf, and hamstring muscles. Too low, and you get a bowlegged, inefficient pedaling form. Extensive research by Shimano's R&D experts has produced a superior shoe last design with an optimized toe-spring section that promotes a smoother, more energy-efficient upstroke. Built based on feedback from pro riders, Shimano Dynalast helps reduce energy loss on long rides, letting you keep more in the tank for that final sprint to the line.
