The design of the RC5 consists of a full surround wrapping upper structure. It not only supports all defined functions of this high-performance shoe but also reduces overlap, to provide a glove-like fit. In addition, this smart design allows it to work well with a wider range of foot shapes.
The upper material is composed of Mesh/TPU/Synthetic leather composite to further improve the shoe’s fit and comfort. Improved breathability is built into its design to more easily handle those hot, summer days.
Thanks to the intricate merging of Form and Function, the RC5 is also very lightweight at 250g (size 42), but with a high stiffness rating of 8 (out of 12) for optimal balance between rigidity and comfort. The shoe’s design also allows for wider cleat adjustment to perfectly match your body geometry and riding style. To get the most out of your RC5 shoes’ benefits, pair them with Shimano PD-R8000 road pedals.
Pedal cleats are available to be purchased separately.
