About this deal

Explore a collection of 5 10 mountain bike shoes perfect for rougher terrains and choose from high and low-top profiles. In addition, they are extremely hard-wearing, making them long-lasting companions on your biking adventures. We offer 10 days free cover with all new bikes purchased, provided by our insurance partner VeloLife. It’s probably not totally fair to even include the Shift here, given its road-oriented design, but it was actually very interesting to try on rougher trails. While the friction offered up by the Stealth Rubber is partly responsible, I feel the flex of the shoe plays a huge role, too.

Sure, a slightly less sticky shoe might be easier to reposition, but once I get my feet planted on S1 Stealth, they’re not going to need repositioning unless I willingly take them off (or really screw up).The Shift’s cotton upper is quite breathable and dries pretty fast, with its main downside on the bike being support and protection. I actually use Xpand laces (lotsa fun colors even though my choice of pink with my brown Roosts is questionable) and made them into slip-ons. I don’t notice this a whole lot, but it does make me more prone to picking the Powerline for longer days of pedaling. The Sleuth is manufactured with a suede leather upper which provides good breathability for more moderate riding but is less breathable than other shoes with more synthetic and highly breathable uppers. But if you’re not a fan of the more “classic-looking” flat-pedal shoes, prefer a slightly softer sole, want to save a bit of money, and / or plan on frequently using your flats shoes around town, the Sleuth DLX is the best “transitional” mountain bike shoe I’ve used.

Please Note: Shipments sent to the European Union are sold exclusive of VAT and may be subject to local import duties and taxes. Freerider came along years after the Contact and I’ve been using them as a walk and casual ride shoe.

That said, this is clearly a shoe that is trying to bridge the gap between trail riding and the casual vibes of a post-ride watering hole, so to add a reinforcement around the toe box would likely impinge upon that aesthetic (and likely make the shoe a little stiffer).

The Five Ten Sleuth is a multisport shoe with great casual style for those days when you want a shoe that does it all. The size range and colourways are the only difference, thus the info and advice below is true for both the Men’s and the Women’s versions. This does help to slightly counteract the outsole’s poorer grip, though it’s still a very different feel vs.But Ride Concepts include it not only in their “Downhill / Gravity” section, but also their “Enduro / All-Mountain” and “Trail / Cross Country” sections.

The regular Sleuth’s Stealth C4 rubber compound is notably harder / less sticky than all the other outsoles here, apart from the DZR Shift. tinha uns adidas velhos e escorreguei com eles, e decidi adicionar um segundo par destes que agarram bem. She regularly competes in Enduro at a national level, and has recently competed on the World Stage at a handful of Enduro World Series events.Five Ten’s famous rubber soles are the cornerstone of its reputation, but there are a few different types it uses, and each has its own pros and cons, which we’ve listed above for you to reference to.
