The Shimano R078 is a classically designed, great value road shoe with Shimano's trademark innovation, quality and style.

Snug, durable and breathable, this all round sport and fitness shoe is perfect for the demanding rider on a budget. It provides a balance of stiffness and compliance thanks to a fibreglass reinforced polyamide sole, giving efficient power transfer whilst remaining comfortable. Triple asymmetric Velcro straps provide secure fitment without creating uncomfortable pressure points on the foot. The tough, stretch resistant synthetic leather upper is combined with dual layer mesh gives excellent breathability and airflow to keep your feet cool.

The Shimano Dynalast Technology sole secures the foot into the ideal ergonomic position for a more efficient up stroke. Designed for SPD-SL cleat systems the Shimano R078 shoe is also compatible with SPD and Look cleats for added versatility.

Perfect for the Spin Bike in the Gym when purchased with the Shimano SH51 cleats and Shimano SH40 SPD Cleat Stablizing Adapters.

Shimano SPD-SL / SPD Guide (.pdf)

Shimano offers the widest range of quality cycling footwear in the world. There is a shoe and pedal for every riding style, and each rider benefits from Shimano's proven excellence in design, manufacturing and uncompromised quality control. It's a legacy that makes a difference to hundreds of Pro Tour and World Cup racers throughout the world. And it will make a difference to you.

Which size shoe do I need?

When choosing your new Shimano shoes we recommend ordering a size up from your normal shoe size as Shimano shoes come up small against normal shoes.

The below size chart is already sized one up for you e.g. if you are normally a UK 8 then order the size 43 Shimano shoe and you'll get the ideal fit.

CREATING PEDALING EFFICIENCY

OPTIMIZED SHOE LAST

The toe-spring section of a cycling shoe plays a key role in supporting efficient pedaling.
Too high, and it causes increased tension in the plantar, calf, and hamstring muscles.
Too low, and you get a bowlegged, inefficient pedaling form.
Extensive research by Shimano's R&D experts has produced a superior shoe last design
with an optimized toe-spring section that promotes a smoother, more energy-efficient upstroke.
Built based on feedback from pro riders, Shimano Dynalast helps reduce energy loss on long rides,
letting you keep more in the tank for that final sprint to the line.

 

CUT BRAKING LOSS WITH MORE EFFICIENT PEDALING

Braking loss is the unwanted loss of power that occurs between the crank angles of 200。 and 360。
in the backspin direction of a pedal stroke. Shoes incorporating Shimano Dynalast help to reduce braking
loss by promoting smoother, more efficient pedaling. If you want to reduce fatigue, get the most out of your
legs, and go the extra mile, ride Shimano Dynalast.
