Strengths:    Gonna skip to the WEAKNESS since it way outweighs and nullifies any strengths

Weaknesses:    The stitching on the padding around the heel comes into direct contact rubbing your heel.

Bottom Line:   
Went out on a nice wet ride to break these things in. My left heel in particular started hurting. Just had to grimace and ride back home. 2 weeks later Due to snow couldn't ride til yesterday, went out forgetting the heel pains. Only a quick pre-work hour ride but still post ride soreness. NOT why I buy a shoe. Hoping duck tape over the stiching might help but I usually reserve duck tape for keeping old things I like together not alliviating problems in bad designs.

Strengths:    Good buckle and Velcro system. Uppers wore well. Sole also wore well.

Weaknesses:    Sole starting to split from upper. Narrow Toe.

Bottom Line:   
Decent shoe. Good buckle and Velcro. Uppers wearing great considering many Eastern mud/rain races. Pretty comfortable once I got used to narrow (aerodynamic?)toe. Unfortunately the sole is splitting from upper after one year and couple thousand miles, not bad. Will be trying Sidi's next.

Strengths:    Great killer looking,
pretty light and stiff. Rachet system is neat.

Weaknesses:    Too narrow at toes, Not much tread on bottom

Bottom Line:   
Too narrow for my regular feet that I have to sell it after one ride. size 42 equels to size 8, not 8.5 claimed. otherwise a great looking XC shoes with top-notch retention system.
