Why We Like The Hellcat Cycling Shoe
The classic Five Ten Hellcat is back at it again with a lighter, more streamlined design for everyone from world-class enduro racers to weekend warriors. We like that the Hellcat still caters to indecisive riders who might clip in for a mellow day on smooth flow trails but leave the flats on for burlier days in the desert. It also makes for an ideal first mountain shoe if you have the goal of going clipless someday.
When you're staring down a boulder-laced rock garden with white knuckles, the Hellcat's Stealth C4 Dotty sole will stick to your flat pedals cleanly as you sit back and let your suspension get to work, without making you regret leaving your two-bolt pedals at home. The dual-density TPU shaft that runs through three-quarters of the sole lends stiffness and stability as you're standing through a descent and delivers reliable power transfer when you reach the bottom of a roller and start digging your way up and over the other side.
