We've heard you running around town bragging about how you're the sports renaissance man. Pavement, dirt, bike, board, and slackline. If you do it all, you should take a gander at the Five Ten Spitfire Shoe. The Spitfire is just like you; it does it all. Five Ten's sticky Stealth outsole keeps you stuck to your pedals, grip tape, or nylon webbing without leaving any trace that you were there.

Strengths: Two words describe these shoes best... Sticky and comfy! Not only do these stick onto your flats like you're wearing clipless, but there also very nice looking. The spitfires run true to size, I wear 9.5 (U.S.) and they wear a perfect fit, enough room for the cold days you wear thick wool socks also. These shoes will get a lot of use both on and off the trails.
Weaknesses: None yet
Perfect shoe to rip thru the trails and keep on your feet when you're done. Money well spent!

Sorry this may seem like a stupid question but...
I have my spitfire on order and am trying to get the parts together for the LBS to build. Is the frame compatible with the dt swiss RWS X-12 bolt? (with the 142 dropouts of course).
Thanks!Read More »
I ordered a 2013 Spitfire frame which is due to arrive early August. Now I've found out the 2014 are due Sept/October I was wondering whether I should cancel my 2013 and just wait it out for the 2014.
Was wondering what the changes are, i'm anxious to get riding one but don't mind wait ... Read More »
