Date Reviewed: January 22, 2009

Strengths:    -Extremely light (770 g/pair), you won't even notice that is on.

-Solid sole system which is not typical in this category (below 100 bucks).

-Three velcro stripes, that hold your feet tightly.

-Well ventilated, which is really cool if you go on hot summer rides.

-Name "Voltage" really matches this shoe, it looks like a high voltage area! I like it, but this is subjective...

Weaknesses:    -When the weather gets colder, well ventillated means freakin' cold...a windproof cover helps.

-The leather at the nose of the shoe tends to get damaged by rocks, because thers is no in bulit cleat (but you can use any type of ordinary football cleats) in the front of the sole. Get a pair of cleats and you won't experience this problem as I did.

Bottom Line:   
I think ADIDAS Voltage is a great MTB shoe, I had no quality problems during the two years' use. Shoes with this type of sole are usually more expensive, so I can onle recommend it.

I wrote nothing about cleaning part, but I found it to be easy to clean as there are mainly leather parts in it.

If you are seeking a light, but solid shoe, and do not want to make compromises on the quality, Voltage is a fine and moderately priced solution!

Strengths:    Price, looks.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
This is my first pair of Shoes for Clipless pedals and thus far I'm satisfied. They dont cost an arm and a leg, and I haven't found any compromises yet. Granted I dont have anything to compare them to, but they're comfortable, look sharp and didnt break the bank when I bought them.

They're pretty light and are easy to tighten + loosen with the three velcro straps across the foot.

Def a good shoe for someone stepping into their first set of clipless pedals like me.

Giant Faith/Voltage FR and dual/single crown?

So I love my faith, it feels great, but not perfect. I rode it at northstar, and it feel great on jumps, but sketchy when trying to carry speed into the rough. The steeps also get to me a bit, I'm guessing because the HA is about 67ish degrees. I posted an ad mentioning I would be interested in t ... Read More »
