Flat pedals win medals they say, and if youre in the camp of death before clipless, the Mens Riddance Mid Cycling Shoe might just be your new flat pedal trail shoes of choice. It has a host of features providing you the confidence needed to progress your trail or park game in any condition. Giro has a long relationship with the technical rubber experts at Vibram so it wasnt a surprise to see Giro calling it up and asking for the rubber needed on the stickiest sole its ever launched. This new Megagrip ISR rubber not only sticks to your pedals with impressive tenacity, it helps dampen vibrations that lead to sore feet and fatigue. Rubber toe and heel reinforcements further increase durability while the gummy rubber with optimized tread design mates to the Riddance’s full-length EVA midsole that soaks up the hits on stomped landings or if you have to land sans bike. The upper is constructed from a durable, supple, and water-resistant microfiber thats breathable, easy to care for, and looks great. A lace closure offers a near custom fit while the hook-and-loop strap offers additional support and hides the laces from hungry chains. This mid-top version adds a little more coverage for protection against your bikes frame, wheels, pedals, and cranks, as well as the trail and ramps and more support to prevent rolled ankles.
