We're looking to get to the top step of the podium this year, and the Shimano XC902 S-PHYRE Wide Cycling Shoe is just what we need to do it. There's a reason so many of the pros wear the best in the business with the XC902. This shoe is stiff, responsive, and still comfortable enough for the long haul. Shimano equips the shoe with one of its best carbon midsole's that feature an 11 of 12 stiffness rating, making this shoe almost as responsive as a track or time trial shoe. Dynalast design is also incorporated and gives our foot a supremely efficient pedaling position.
