Flat pedal shoe or click pedal shoe - that's the question!
Who has not had a go with friends - the basic discussion about flat pedals or click pedals on mountain bikes ?!
Also we can not answer this question definitively and say: the decision is up to you. In our shop you will find both bike shoes with and without click system. In the shoes without Cleataufnahme usually comes a handy rubber sole such as. the FiveTen Stealth®. In the rubber, the pins of your flat pedal claws particularly well. They offer you firm hold even on rough Downhillpassagen. The advantage of such shoes is that in a possible fall, despite good grip on the pedals, find fast and can possibly intercept and prevent. Also, many drivers like the opportunity to change their foot while driving occasionally on the pedal. This is of course not possible with click shoes, as they are firmly connected to the pedals. Although they allow a more efficient power transmission to the drive, but you do not allow you so much flexibility on the pedal. So there is a risk here that one does not always "click out" in time when a maneuver or fall forces one to do so.
In general, the choice of MTB shoes remains a matter of taste. At that time it was said that Downhill, Freerider & Slopestyler Flapedals drive and the clipless pedals only make sense in the cross country area. Today, many of the World Cup Downhill riders also drive with clicks and in the Enduro sector they are widely used. It's best to try it out and decide for it!
In our shop you will find mountain bike shoes in different styles, colors and sizes! So your individual taste no limit is set.
