Strengths:    Cheap, stiff enough, comfortable riding. Good ooting on New England rocks.

Weaknesses:    Great for biking but not so comfortable for walking.

Bottom Line:   
These have been great. I have beat them up good and they hold up fine. They are my first set of clipless. The front rubber cleats finally gave out after 3 years of twice a week riding.

Strengths:    affordable, very comfortable. I forget I am wearing anything because they are so light.

Weaknesses:    Feel a little soft for riding in mud, then again I use to wear running sneakers for biking.

Bottom Line:   
Good for the price, I bought them with wam 3 pedals as a combo deal. Very light, comfortable when you order the correct size, easy on/off straps, shoe stays put.

Date Reviewed: December 13, 2005

Strengths:    Has reflective heel, that's about the only thing!

Weaknesses:    Not stiff at all, did not fit well at all! There was a lot more room in these than my older pair of Specialized shoes (same size, 44). 2 straps with no laces was not a good idea. Can't say much else about them, I only had them for a week!

Bottom Line:   
Bought these as a combo with some wellgo pedals from PricePoint.com, and sold them within a week! very bad fit; too large for their size. Too flexible and too much room to move around in the shoe; maybe a size 43 would have been better, but I've always worn 44s. I only tested them around the block a few times, so I can't really comment on their field performance. Just from looking at them up close and personal though, the seams, material, and velcro all looked really cheap. Stay away from these.

Submitted by Allen a Weekend Warrior from Williamsburg, VA

Date Reviewed: November 7, 2005

Strengths:    They do the job, and seem to be holding up well.

Weaknesses:    Could be more comfortable, and I wouldn't necessarily want to be wearing these on a muddy tail in the Northeast.

Bottom Line:   
A good entry-level shoe for riders going clipless for the first time. Bought them as a combo from Price Point with Wellgo pedals, and have been pleased so far. Just don't plan on running through the forest in them...

Strengths:    Does what its advertised to do at a low cost. Excellent product for the money.

Weaknesses:    could be more comfortable but for $60 what do you expect.

Bottom Line:   
These are a good entry level shoe. It provides all the advantages of clip in peddal system at a low startup cost.
