Strength:

Pretty light for the amount of protection.

Weakness:

The quality of the sole is terrible.

These shoes, while they are pretty damn light, wear out too fast. I do some fair amount of hike-a-bikes and these are the worst shoes for that by far. I took my first pair back to RNR and they swapped them out no questions asked. Now my second pair, after 4 months, are falling apart again. I am going to contact Specialized this time and see what the have to say. I have heard great things about Specialized customer support so we'll see. Keep ya posted.

Strength:

Confortable, good protection

Weakness:

Weak construction and materials

This shoe seemed like a good alternative to the Sidis that I was tearing up too quickly riding technical rocky trails. Too bad. The first weekend I wore these, I almost tore a heel pad off the sole. I glued it back in place and continued to have to do that four more times before it finally disappeared. Other pads continue to peel off and have had to be glued back on. Makes it a little hard to walk when you have to.

It's such a shame because these shoes work so well otherwise. They weigh barely more than Sidis, but provide a lot more protection. The scuff pads are showing some wear, but considering the stuff I like to ride, not excessive.

I'm disappointed. These are far better than their really awful predecessors, but at this rate, Having to buy a new pair every six months, I might as well go back to Sidis.

Strength:

Comfy, breaks in fast, nice secure fit. Toebox area seems roomier than Sidis, Ankle protection

Weakness:

None. Well, I had trouble putting on one of the studs, so I said the heck with it; I've never used them on any other show

Recommended.
Breaks in immediately
Nice Ankel Protection for those "whoops" moments
Can't say if they are not as stiff as the $100 more Carbon soled version, but that smacks as overkill to me
Feel as stiff as the SIDI's, though racer types might disagree. Not a noticable weight difference, but this is from someone not setting any land speed records, particularly with hauling around a Nicolai TFR as a trail bike.
Work well with Time Z-Controls, no clearance issues clipping in or out

Similar Products Used: Sidi Dominators, which I purchased like 7 years ago and still going strong
