To get the most from your road cycling experience, it is well worth investing in a quality set of cycling shoes, even if you’re using regular, flat platform pedals. They will increase your comfort, improve your efficiency and help make sure you can power along and on be on your way.
Like other cycling shoes, road cycling shoes come in a huge variety of styles to suit differing needs and conditions. Road racers who want the lightest and fastest shoes will be best served by shoes with a superlight and stiff carbon sole teamed with a retention system that allows them to get them tight enough to avoid any excess movement, yet still be comfortable for hour after hour in the saddle. Riders who a happier to go along at their own pace are better served by a more comfortable, forgiving set that will allow them to get the miles in without any discomfort. Whatever style of shoe fits your needs, you can be sure to find it here.
