Add a touch of carbon to your ride.
The Shimano SH-RP5 Men's Cycling Shoes feature a carbon plate within a reinforced nylon sole to up the stiffness factor compared to its RP3 and RP2 siblings. Their outsole stiffness rating of seven out of 12 places the SH-RP5s solidly in the middle of comfort and competition, marking this as a versatile shoe that's appropriate for a wide range of cycling ventures. Compatible with two-bolt and three-bolt cleats, these shoes match with a wide range of pedal types — including most spin bike pedals.
The SH-RP5's closure system consists of a middle hook-and-loop strap that passes through a mid-foot D-ring for exceptional stability and adjustability while minimizing tension across the foot. An additional hook-and-loop strap crosses the forefoot, and a ratchet strap fastens across the top of the shoe for a customized fit and even pressure distribution. A surround upper pattern provides additional comfort and completes these shoes' streamlined look.
