Stiff and comfy
- I've used it several times
- Runs small
I got these to replace some old Pearl Izumi MTB Race shoes. These things are less burly than what I was used to, and felt more like a cross between a road shoe and a mtb shoe. I use it for gravel racing and mtb riding. Power transfer is great with the stiff carbon sole. At the start of every ride, I notice the top of the cuff where the tongue normally is touching my ankle, but after five minutes I don't feet it. The shoes are generally comfy enough that I don't notice my feet during long days on New England dirt roads and up hills. The cat tongue material at the heel prevents heel slip just like it does in Shimano's road shoes, and the one boa has a fine adjustment mechanism that makes fit pretty precise. I have no trouble loosening the boa to take off the shoes--takes 2 seconds. Just pull the trigger up with one hand and pull up the tongue with your other and the whole thing is loose and coming off the foot. This thing does run small. I have a size 12 shoe generally. I wear 45 in Shimano shoes, but a 46 in Northwaves.

sticky SLW2 closing mechanism
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
- Size Bought
- Size 42
- 5` 8"
I purchased these as a replacement to a Rebel model a couple months ago and the SLW2 closing mechanism constantly sticks, making it difficult to open and remove the shoe. I haven't determined whether the cause is related to the wire lacing or the dial itself however, it's upsetting for a shoe of this cost.

Maybe you got a defective shoe? Mine work flawlessly--just pull up the trigger and the boa loosens, and the shoes come off in about 2 seconds.
