Kestrel Pro Boa Shoe

Charge up long, technical climbs then drop into steep lines with confidence with the Five Ten Kestrel Pro Boa Shoe. Combining Five Ten's stiffest carbon-infused shank with clipless compatibility, these shoes transfer maximum power to the pedals for an efficient all-mountain ride. The Kestrel Pro Boa has more room in the toe box than the original Kestrel Boa shoes, but uses the same Boa dial closure for a micro-adjustable fit that's quick, easy, and secure.

Ready for rougher rides on varied terrain, the synthetic uppers are durable and weather-resistant, and feature micro-perforations for breathability. The perforated EVA tongue with mesh overlay adds even more ventilation, and sits comfortably against your foot with some padding for protection. Molded toe and heel guards provide additional protection from rock strikes and errant trail debris. The lightweight EVA midsole and the OrthoLite insoles provide cushion and support for your feet, and a non-slip heel cup ensures a secure hold when you're mashing away at the pedals.The tacky Stealth C4 rubber outsole provides confident footing in all terrain, and gives you some extra grip on the pedals if you miss a clip-in, or if conditions are less-than-ideal.

  • All-weather mountain bike shoes designed for a secure fit
  • Stiff carbon-infused shank delivers efficient power transfer
  • Tacky Stealth rubber outsole for grip in any conditions
  • Boa closure system for a secure and confident hold

    Do these shoes come with 2 bolt Shimano cleats? If so, which ones? Thanks! Asking for a friend (for real).

    Satisfactory, not hike a bike friendly

    I've put it through the wringer

    With almost thirty years of MTB, I've gone through multiple Sidi shoes and boots that were great but then decided to do a trans Alp. After reading several reviews, bought this and the NW Spider. specifically to address the hike a bike, something that never usually entered into my repertoire. BLUF is that the NW were much better suited for that task but this review is for the FIVE TEN. I liked the lacing system ease of use for getting in and out of the shoe. The fit was good, about the same as the Sidi Dominators but the problem comes with the sole stiffness. It is a very clunky sole that does not bend, (I weigh in at 115Kg body and pack) and therefore during a hike a bike, my heels came up out of the shoe, not what I want in the Alps. The Dominator comes with a heel adjustment so that at least during a hike a bike your heel is held in place as you stiffly climb those 30% grades. The heel stays in place on the NW but that has a different retention system. I'm a Candy guy, and the cleats need the spacer to allow you to click out quickly. Otherwise, you're almost welded to your pedals. Overall, the shoe is satisfactory as long as you stay in the saddle. With a stiff sole the power transfer is about as good as any of the Sidis I've had, though a bit more comfortable in the fit. Walking in the shoe is little different than with the Sidis with the same clomping except perhaps with more surface area on the FIVE TEN I didn't feel unsafe while walking on wet pavement. The cleats can be set up to remain below the tread, so no surface damage or risk of sliding on tiles. It's a shoe that looks and acts great while you're in the saddle, otherwise, it's not hike a bike compatible.

    Nice shoe, but collar and tongue height

    I returned this product before using it
    True to size
    Size Bought

    Fits true to size—10.5 here and in Freerider Pro. 10.5-11 in everyday street shoes. Rubber seems great; sole plenty stiff, but would imagine hikes well; footbed very comfortable; Boa closure great. Ultimately returned due to collar and tongue height. When compared to the Freerider Pros the collar comes up an additional cm or so and cut right into my ankle with any degree of flexion. I had the same issue with the tongue. Ended up going with the Specialized 2FO Cliplite in a 44–very similar in most every way, if not a touch more narrow.

    Nice Shoe

    I’ve been mountainbiking since ‘97 and have had many shoes over the years. This is my first pair of 5 10s and also my first pair with boa. First, these shoes are incredibly stiff. Great for power transfer, not so great for hike a bike. Could be they need more breaking in but Time will tell. The shoe is comfortable and the boa lace system is so nice. Easy to dial in the fit and I love the ease of releasing the system when it’s time to take them off. They’re really durable but not as breathable as past shoes I’ve had. They don’t really have any mesh sections so airflow is limited. Overall, I’d buy them again.

    Great shoe, love the Boa

    I've used it several times
    True to size

    I am just getting into Mtn Biking and assume, that like road biking, the better quality gear increases the fun factor. I replaced an older Shimano shoe I bought years ago on sale. I really like the material and workmanship of the 5 10. The boa rules!

    Solid shoe

    I've put it through the wringer

    I've been a die-hard Sidi fan for a long time but as my riding has gotten more aggressive I decided that I wanted some stealth rubber in case I need to bail attempting rocky features and I've been surprisingly happy with these. I was worried that the water-resistant fabric wouldn't breathe and my feet would overheat in the Utah summers but that didn't turn out to be a problem. When I first put them on they felt warm but when I'm pedalling they open up and my feet stay dry both from sweat and creek crossings. The soles are stiff and give good power transfer which is great for climbs. The Stealth rubber is harder than it is on Five Ten's flat shoes which will hopefully translate to a longer lifespan, but they still grip pretty well when I miss a clip. I still like the fit on my old Sidi Dominators more and these feel just a touch loose by comparison but is stilly pretty good. The Boa system is great for quick on and off but I don't feel that the velcro over the toes does much. By far my biggest complaint is that Adidas felt the need to plaster their logo on the tongue. Okay Adidas we all know that you bought Five Ten, there's no need to remind me of it every time I go for a bike ride. Please just sit back, collect your money, and let Five Ten make their own decisions. Or at least keep your logo off their shoes. It looks incredibly out of place and for better or worse looks are a big part of the decision making the process for buying a new pair of shoes.

    I love these things. I will be honest, and admit that I don't have much to compare them to, but I'm stoked, either way.

    Nice balance

    I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I wanted a shoe with the boa system as my Giro's Terraduro ratchets were wearing smooth from trying to keep tight after 1000 miles plus spinning. These shoes have a great feel, not too xc tightness and not too enduro flat shoe comfy. I have to say that I did over-tighten the first couple uses and the boa holds tough, so I have had to find where the show is tight, but not pressuring the top of my foot. They look great and feel great so far!
