How to Use Bicycle Accessories : Guide to Buying Mountain Bike Shoes


JEFF COOK: Hello, and I am Jeff Cook from
All Seasons Sports, here today to talk to you about some of the latest and greatest
and some of the coolest stuff for bikes on behalf of Expert Village. Today, we’re going
to talk about mountain bike shoes. This can be a wonderful upgrade to something you should
always take care of, your feet. Now, what we have in this Shimano shoe which is brand
new out is the first full off-the-shelf custom fit shoe. So, we actually heat this shoe up,
put it on your foot and it will mold to your foot, everything from the insole, on the inside
of it, to the full surrounding inside part of the shoe as well. A shoe like this has
things integrated into it so your heel doesn’t slip out. We have a latching system to really
keep that heel secured in the shoe. We’re using a carbon fiber sole which is not only
going to be lightweight for you, but it’s going to be extremely stiff so all that power
transfer goes from your feet into the pedals which will make us go forward. You have nice
spikes that are incorporated here, for when we have to walk up that steep muddy hill.
And we also have a nice large clear area here to clear that mud out of that zone for where
our cleat mounts.
