Strength:

This shoe is really light, easy on/off with the ratcheting strap. There is little flex in the sole and yet it's still comfortable on hike-a-bike sections.

Weakness:

The mesh makes it pretty cold in the winter, but that's not what it's made for anyway.

Lightweight and a good price if you can find it on sale. Fits my feet. I have narrow feet and it was hard to find a 12.5 with a narrow width.

Strength:

CLOSURES ARE NICE, STIFF SOLE, RATCHETING MECHANISM WORKS EVEN WHEN FILLED W/MUD

Weakness:

UNCOMFORTABLE ANKLE CONTACT AT FRONT THAT NEVER GOES AWAY, MESH TEARS AWAY FROM LEATHER BITS, TOP STRAP BREAKS OFF

VERY FLASHY, UNCOMFORTABLE SHOE.
BEGINS TO DISINTEGRATE ALMOST IMMEDIATELY.
THE CLOSURES ARE VERY NICE UNTIL THEY FALL OFF THE SHOE.

Strength:

Light weight, great ventilation, and very secure on the foot.

I personal think it is one of the best looking clipless shoes out there. No weird colors, just black and white and very slick looking.

They have a carbon fiber sole...enough said.

Weakness:

The shoe was extremely uncomfortable around the ankle area at first. It was very stiff and dug into my ankle while walking. It was quite painful. After about 3 months of use, the shoes have worn in and no longer dig into my ankle. I was tempted to return them initially, but I'm glad I didn't.

Lightweight, great ventilated, and securely fitting shoe. It is a little pricey at a $200 MSPR, so I'll give it a value rating of 4 chilis. The shoe was very uncomfortable at first (but not after being broken in), so I'll have to give 4 chilis for overall rating.

As far as the other reviewers mentioning the issue about the top strap...I've had no issues with that. The shoes are seems to hold up very well.

Strength:

Comfortable, light and stiff.

Weakness:

Stitching that holds the top strap on. The stitching comes off opposite the buckle side allowing the top strap to fall off.

This was my second pair in a year. The first made it only 4 rides when the stitching came off on the top strape opposite of the buckle. I sent them back thinking it was a defective pair. The second pair made it through the summer and now the same thing. This is obviously a flaw in design. It is a shame because they are very stiff light and comfortable. Of course who wants to pay over a hundred dollars for a pair of shoes that make it only a season.

Strength:

light and stiff and even semi-comfy.

Weakness:

same problem as this previous chap. Stitching at non-ratchet end is like perforated paper and rips clean and readily. Performance was very cool about the return, just to mention.

Good shoe but fatally flawed. Do not Buy.
