Developed in pursuit of the highest possible degree of power transfer, the RC9 is ingenious in its simplicity. It starts with a brand-new outsole construction that eliminates the lasting board, slashing stack height to the absolute minimum. It's enhanced with an external heel cup that, in concert with a dual Boa closure, locks the foot in place under hard efforts. It remains remarkably comfortable thanks to the stretch-resistant yet immensely supple one-piece Teijin Avail microfiber synthetic upper. As a result, the RC9 disappears on the foot, yet maximizes the effort of each pedal stroke.
Built with the full suite of innovative features found in the RC9, and packed with nods to the demands of elite cross country racing, the XC9 eliminates the compromises inherent in so many mountain shoes. It starts with a masterfully designed sole, clad in Michelin rubber and further enhanced with removable 18mm toe spikes, which ensures surefootedness when dismounts become necessary. The identical carbon sole construction, dual Boa closure, and one-piece upper, paired with an armored version of the RC9's external heel cup, ensures that the XC9 enjoys all of the advantages enjoyed by its road-going counterpart.
Developed with the same painstaking attention to detail that made the S-PHYRE footwear possible, the S-PHYRE Apparel line is pinnacle racewear designed to disappear once the ride gets underway. Boasting construction techniques aimed at enhancing comfort and reducing aerodynamic drag, and presented in a tastefully minimalist aesthetic, each piece within the line is undeniably deserving of the esteemed S-PHYRE designation.
