Competition level MTB / cyclocross cycling shoes from FLR, the most excited new cycling shoe brand to hit Australian shores! The FLR F-65 MTB / cyclocross cycling shoes are competition level cycling shoes, featuring a fibre-glass reinforced polyamide sole, boa-style dial adjustable laces and a microfibre leather upper for maximum efficiency, comfort and breathability. These features are usually reserved for shoes costing three or four hundred dollars! They are ideally suited to the Shimano M520 SPD or VP M-12 SPD-compatible pedals. The F-65s are ideally suited to cross-country mountain biking, which 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. This also makes them well suited to cyclocross, where the aggressive tread gives traction in all conditions.
The closure system has two parts: two velcro straps across the lower foot for infinite adjustment and a micro-adjustable ratcheting buckle for the upper foot, to secure your heel during those explosive sprints and climbs. The ratchet buckle and tongue assembly are replaceable, should they ever be damaged. The velcro straps spread the tension evenly across your foot for better comfort and circulation. The rapidly adjustable buckle locks your heel down for maximum power delivery. 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 F-65 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. The low weight of these shoes will suit fast commutes, touring, off-road endurance rides and other cross-country events.
