How to Choose Cycling Shoes?
There are several types of cycling shoes, whether you are a road cyclist, mountain biker, gravel rider, or hybrid rider. Here are the different types of cycling shoes:
Road Cycling Shoes
Road cycling shoes are designed to maximize power transfer to the pedals. Typically featuring a stiff sole made of nylon or carbon, road cycling shoes are lightweight and well-ventilated. Road shoes are generally compatible with three-hole cleats (road), but some models can also accept two-hole cleats (mountain). The stiffness of the sole is crucial for road cycling shoes, often expressed by a stiffness index ranging from 1 to 14.
Mountain Bike Shoes
Mountain bike shoes come in two types: clip-compatible and platform. Clip-compatible mountain bike shoes (two-hole) are for performance-oriented mountain bikers (cross-country, trail) seeking efficiency in climbs and good control on rough terrain. On the other hand, platform mountain bike shoes are more suitable for riders who prefer steep descents (enduro, downhill) and need the ability to quickly remove their feet from the pedals. It is recommended to use platform mountain bike shoes with cleated pedals.
Gravel Cycling Shoes
Gravel cycling shoes fall somewhere between the two previous types of cycling shoes. Typically clip-compatible shoes, gravel shoes are lightweight, ventilated, and designed for two-bolt cleats. They also have a treaded sole for steeper climbs where pedaling might not be possible.
Winter Cycling Boots
For winter riding, cycling boots are the best choice to keep your feet warm. Whether you're a fatbike rider dealing with snow or a seasoned winter commuter looking for warmth and dryness, we have what you need.
What Socks to Wear with Cycling Shoes?
It is highly recommended to choose thin cycling socks specifically designed to offer superior ventilation during exertion. If you're unsure, check out our wide selection of cycling socks. Some cycling socks have compressive properties to promote blood circulation in the feet. There are also merino wool cycling socks available to keep your feet warm during colder seasons.
Clip-in Cycling Shoes or Flat Pedal Shoes?
Clip-in cycling shoes offer a clear advantage in improving pedaling efficiency. We strongly recommend considering the use of clip-in pedals and shoes, regardless of your cycling discipline. If you've never used clip-in shoes before, it will require practice and a transition period. However, the benefits are well worth the effort. There are different types of clip-in shoes and pedals available. Feel free to contact us to find the best choice for you.
