Agree completely I actually purchased these they are about as narrow as Shimano or Mavic but longer. So far great shoe, I have completed 2 lengthy endurance races in them and they are great for the application where you might encounter some long steep hike a bike. Still stiff when you pedal but enough toe flex where you can hike steep unrideable sections of trail.
They did seem to snug up after being soaked for a long period of time, I wont say shrunk but snigged up.
Durability: They are starting to wear already but I am rough on shoes. Will see how they hold up in the long run.
Cleat plates: Both mine stripped yes I might have over torqued but not by much, ended up taking some out of old pair of shoes that went into the dump.

How do these fit compared to a Mavic, Shimano, or Sidi shoe? Run big or small?
So i was looking between the xenon so and tool so. The tool was the original choice but ended up with the xenon so because of the deal i found on one of the backcountry sister sites. thanks BC. Only slight concern I had with the xenon so vs. tool is how the pre-formed arms and if would be a tighter fit in the chest. The xl worked great and I am 5'7 180 with a wider chest/shoulders than a lot ot cylcists. Only thing with this coat is I wish I would have brought it sooner.
Also have a alp-x paclite jacket and think the world of gore bike wears products they just plain work AWESOME
