Road bike shoes for more performance
The right shoes are probably one of the most important factors when racing. They connect you with the bike and translated the power from your legs to the drive on the bike. For this reason, you probably do not have long to invest in a few high-quality racing shoes. The shoes are usually practical Velcro or screw caps used, so there is no annoying dangling shoelaces, which can also get caught in the chainring and lead to a fall. In the aerodynamically cut shoe you can go to the start and chase new records. In classic road cycling, triathlon or time trial almost exclusively clipless pedals are used, mostly the LOOK Kéo and Speedplay Peadalsystem are used here. Probably the biggest difference between MTB and racing shoes lies in the stiffness of the sole. Carbonsoles are often processed for optimum power transmission. So it is clear that a road shoe is made only for cycling and not to go for a walk. But despite the hard sole of the upper shoe should fit comfortably on the foot. To avoid annoying pressure sores, blisters and the associated pain, you should pay close attention to how the shoe sits. In our shop you will find different cuts and sizes. Now let's give you a brief overview of the two most common pedal systems of racing shoes:
LOOK Kéo pedal system
The peculiarity of Look's own system is that there are three different plates for different freedom of movement. These are red gray and black. The Look Kéo is mostly used in the racing bike sector and is very popular there. Most drivers choose a very solid version to allow a "clean and round" kick.
Speedplay post system
This system, which is mainly used in time trial and triathlon, also holds various cleats ready. Again, the differences in freedom of movement.
