Strengths:    The removable spikes are great, in town I take them off for walking comfort but put them on for some hike a bike trails. Have lasted much longer then my old shoes which were history after only one year.

Weaknesses:    Could be a little more supportive, Fixed it with super feet inserts.

Bottom Line:   
Good shoe for the money but my next pair will be something else

Date Reviewed: May 9, 2004

Strengths:    Stiff sole, big knobs, neoprene thingy, velcro

Weaknesses:    The trim on the neoprene wasn't sewn on with a stiching which accomodates stretch and broke within first few months (oops, neoprene stretches....), but it was an easy fix - 2min with a needle and thread.

Bottom Line:   
Great shoes, I've had these for 3 or 4 years at least - and ride them almost year round through all sorts of mud, goo, ice and snow. They've lasted at least 7000km and still have plenty of life in them. I rarely clean them, but none of the material has rotted out. I haven't had any of the 'de-lamination' problems I've heard about - Maybe I got lucky, but I'm very happy with these.

Strengths:    This being my first clipless shoe, I would say IT WORKS! But really, it feels snug on my feet, it's easy to get in and out of, and it also looks cool.

Weaknesses:    It's a bit narrow for my feet. Also, my bike is red, silver, and black. Blue and yellow doesn't go with it well.

Bottom Line:   
A great shoes, while not as technically up to date as the new SIDIs for example. I've had no trouble with the loop or the rubber sole. I'm pleased.

Date Reviewed: September 19, 2001

Strengths:    Super stiff, toe spikes are great for scrambling up muddy hills, velcro straps are fast and easy, snug fit

Weaknesses:    That neoprene cuff thing sucks. The finger-loop-shoehorn-strap-thing tore out of the neoprene cuff within a few weeks and now there's a big hole in the cuff. They should have reinforced the cuff before stitching a pull strap on there. Otherwise, no complaints.

Bottom Line:   
Good shoes if the pull strap hadn't destroyed the neoprene cuff

Submitted by Paul Marshall a Cross Country Rider from Cambridge, England

Date Reviewed: September 28, 2000

Strengths:    Looks Cool (to begin with)
Grips the sloppiest muddy bank and allows you to run straight up.
Neoprene cuff keeps your ankles warm.
Narrow fit, suits my skinny feet.
Make a good race shoe in harsh conditions.


Weaknesses:    Eroding rubber.
Poor adhesives used.Terrible trail shoe


Bottom Line:   
I've had these shoes for just over 2 years. After about 1 year, the big rubber grippy-spike things started to fall off. Soon after, bits of the rubber sole started to erode away. The toe-box section fell off. The sole has come away from the rest of the shoe, they're held together with cable ties now cos I can't afford new shoes yet. NOT a good trail shoe.

Date Reviewed: May 18, 1998

Bottom Line:   

I can't say that I'm pleased with these shoes. The rubber around the cleat doesn't mate very well with 747s, which should mate perfectly considering that they are made by the same company. The extra rubber restricts float and makes it much more difficult to get in and out of. If you have 636's you will have to shave off alot of rubber. Once I had them shaved the way I wanted them they worked good. The neoprene makes them harder to get on. The nice thing is it keeps the dirt out of the shoes. The fit is decent.
