Submitted by Phil a Weekend Warrior from Manhattan Beach, Ca, USA

Date Reviewed: June 9, 2003

Strengths:    fit, comfort, breathability, traction

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
This shoe fits my medium width forefoot and narrow heel foot very well. The two velcro straps provide excellent security and there is no heel lift. The shoe breathes very well and is quite comfortable. Power transfer is great, as is traction when having to hike. Overall I am very pleased with my AXO Stinger shoes.

Submitted by Dave Kieper a Weekend Warrior from Williamson, New York

Date Reviewed: June 6, 2003

Strengths:    The two velcro straps do a very good job of keeping your foot glued to the bottom of the shoe.

Weaknesses:    This is a very narrow shoe. I should have been able to buy a size 46, but I had to buy it in a 48 to get the necessary width.

Bottom Line:   
For the money, it is a very good shoe as long as you have a narrow foot. It fits tight and there is minimal heel lift.

Submitted by Nathan a Cross Country Rider from Salt Lake City

Date Reviewed: May 6, 2003

Strengths:    Stiff, low cost, nice entry level race shoe

Weaknesses:    Not made anymore, 661 bought Axo Cycling.

Bottom Line:   
Nice shoes, very good for the racer on a budget. Agressive tread allows you to dig the tough trails, and the stiffness allows for more power transfer than other shoes.

Steamboat Stinger

So I am going to sign up for the Steamboat Stinger 50 mile race this year. Wondering if anyone has done this race and has any beta for me. In particular I am curious if it is smooth enough to ride rigid or if I should throw on my suspension fork; and if it best to wear a small camelbak or just rock ... Read More »

Blackspire Stinger Chain tensioner

Just wondering if anyone here is using this with a raceface ride xc crank. Is the install as simple as it looks. I currently have a 1 x 9 set up, do I just pull my crank off and put it on the bottom bracket? Do I need to remove the spacer or does that matter? Also curious if anyone has used this wit ...
