I really like this shoe. The grip is great if you need to get off the bike. Very comfortable. They are pretty lightweight.
Definitely not a race fit as the toe box has quite alot of room for me. I tend to use these for gnarlier rides in the 15 mile and under range, anything longer and I opt for my XC shoes for efficiency. Pedaling is pretty good on these.
im not a big guy so Im not putting a ton of power into the sole so pedaling is just fine.
I highly recommend,
