Mountain bike / touring shoes from FLR, one of the most exciting new names in bike shoes. The FLR F-55.II is the new and improved 2014 model from the team at FLR. Features durable synthetic leather uppers and lightweight reinforced-polyamide soles. Features triple velcro closures for quick and precise adjustment. Polyurethane lugs on the sole for grip when you need it. Stylish look in black with red detail. The FLR F-55 mountain bike / touring shoes are ideal for fast commuting, touring, off-road endurance rides and other cross-country events. The shoes are recommended for most two-bolt pedal systems such as SPD, Crank Brothers and Time ATAC. These recessed cleats don-t stick out like road cleats, so they are also great for commuting and touring. They are ideally suited to the Shimano M520 or VP M-12 pedals. The XC stands for cross-country. Cross-country mountain biking is one of the toughest, fastest disciplines of off-road cycling. It requires a tight balance of speed, power, efficiency and endurance. These shoes were designed for that environment. The triple velcro straps are infinitely adjustable within their range and are offset from one another for even better comfort and circulation. Your feet are secured snugly into your shoes without pinching. The velcro closures allow for quick, precise adjustments. The lightweight reinforced-polyamide sole is efficient without being bone jarringly stiff. This is ideal for longer endurance rides. Unlike road shoes, the sole features aggressively profiled polyurethane lugs for maximum grip if you have to put a foot down. The FLR F-55 shoes feature a high-quality, replaceable insole, giving excellent support for the contours of your feet. The toebox is designed to allow circulation and improve ventilation, keeping your blood-flow up and your temperature down.
