New 2016 Shimano Footwear Announced
After introducing the R321 limited-edition shoes in its Competition category earlier this summer, Shimano has added to its Road range with four new Performance pairs, the RP9, RP5, RP3 and RP2, designed to bridge the gap between racing cyclists and sportive riders.
In the Tour category two new Cross Mountain (XM9 and XM7) shoes are designed for serious explorers looking to push the limits of their cycling endurance. Nubuck leather, Gore-Tex® and Vibram® soles provide the perfect material for the dynamic, rugged terrain encountered in adventure cycling.
Seven new models feature in the women’s specific category, taking the total number of women’s-specific shoes produced by the company to 16. A new WR84 competition road shoe caters for road racing performance whilst the WM64 and WM53 provide ergonomically efficient footwear for cross-country and general off-road riding. In addition new RP5W, RP3W, RP2W and TR9W women’s models introduce the same technology as their new male counterparts.
