Supremely Engineered Fit
Anti-twist stabilizer is built to handle the intense twisting forces caused by explosive acceleration. We used foot movement studies and pedaling visualizations to redesign the shoe’s structure to support more aggressive acceleration.
Reinforced mesh and Microfiber leather upper materials are arranged and layered in targeted performance zones to maximize fit, flexibility, rigidity and breathability. It took equal parts science and art to complete this engineering puzzle.
360° Surround Wrapping Upper
Our new 360° surrounding upper wraps the foot in a supportive cocoon from the upper all the way around the outsole.
SHIMANO DYNALAST helps competitive riders reduce energy loss on long rides, letting them keep more in the tank for that final sprint to the finish line.
SPD-SL is a road pedal platform systematically engineered with SHIMANO footwear to transfer more power from your body to your bike. For pro riders the extra-wide, low-profile cleat distributes energy more evenly over a wider surface and transfers it more efficiently to the bike, under the most extreme pedaling loads.
