Strengths:    Comfortable, adjustable fit w/ the Boa system. Very lightweight.

Weaknesses:    Shiny finish is sure to scuff quickly with real XC riding.

Bottom Line:   
The fit of these shoes was unbelievable right out of the box. First ride in them was a 35-miler on local trails and the shoes felt like slippers. Body Geometry insoles were also comfortable and not irritating like some of the earlier models that had a metatarsal arch that was waaaay too high. I also like that these shoes came with toe spikes. Only thing I ound negative about these shoes was the cost. Even with a local bike shop discount, these babies are steeply priced. Only thing keeping these from 5 chillies across the board is the cost of ownership. I've dated some very classy women who didn't own Pradas this expensive..., but then again, their shoes couldn't do what these do!
These shoes are perfect for the XC, go faster, race-it-like-you-stole-it crowd. If you have the $$$$$ laying around, I recommend spending it on these shoes. If they last like I think they should, even at this price, they will be a bargain.
