You ride your mountain bike for the thrills and the awesome fun and exhilarating. The buzz you get from riding or competing with and against friends. And so you don't want distractions, least of all when you just want to get on the pedals and ride. The 5.0 Clipless Pedal Shoes ensure you are always ready to roll with minimum fuss and maximum comfort and efficiency.
Clip and Go
When you're on the clipless pedals you want quick and easy engagement and plenty of adjustment to get the support and pedalling efficiency from the right cleat position. And here the Leatt SPD channel is a clear winner. This provides an extended range of cleat adjustment, ideal for gravity riders, and ensures you always find the clip-in point with minimal fuss.
There's also the combination of Leatt's sticky RideGripTM Compound and WaffleGrip tread. This gives traction on the pedal body, whether clipped in or not, boosting confidence to let it all hang out on loose terrain.
Across the pedal area, the shoe is stiffened, creating a supportive and efficient pedalling platform. Meanwhile, the more flexible toe section is just right for those times when you're pushing back up the hill. Mudflow channels also improve dirt-shedding, keeping the tread clearer when it's very muddy.
And when you're off your bike and pushing up to session a trail feature, the aggressive lug pattern keeps you upright and secure on any terrain. Lastly, an anti-compression EVA midsole delivers excellent comfort and support over any terrain, from smooth flow trails to testing jump runs to steep rocky chutes.
The 5.0s don't just let you clip in easily. They're also tough enough for the rigours of regular mountain bike fun and comfortable for all-day trail-ripping adventures. First of all, the Hydradri 10K/10K water-resistant construction means there's no way poor weather will keep you from riding. Inside, an Active Carbon lining and insole keep your feet fresh thanks to the quick-wicking performance and anti-bacterial, anti-odour characteristics.
Getting the perfect fit is also simple. The speed lace system lets you get lace tension just how you like it and then lock the fit in place. Cross-tension straps also add extra adjustment and also provide some extra weather protection across the forefoot.
Strategically placed TPU protection and a rigid reinforced toe box fend off the inevitable bumps and scratches from debris found on any trail or kicked up off your tyres.
These MTB shoes are compatible with MTB pedal systems, which use cleats with SPD standard (2-bolt standard), e.g.: Shimano SPD, Time ATAC, CrankBrothers, CrankBrothers Race, Look MTB, Xtreme MTB, Wellgo MTB, Ritchey MTB.
