Comfortable and Adjustable
I have been riding these two seasons now, and am glad I followed my road bike shoe onto the trail. The adjustability, even on the fly, is so nice. You can crank hard on the ratchet for a tough climb and back off when the trail eases off. Forget the footbed, it is flimsy, but that is usually the case. I use a Surefoot insole, which even further dials in the fit. Can you go too wrong with an Italian shoe?
