Description

The Ion Rascal SPD Shoes are a fully-featured Clipless MTB shoe that is ready and tackle the trails head-on. The Rascal offers excellent power transmission onto the pedal due to it's stiff EVA sole which is designed for stiffness in the longitudinal axis, with flexibility in the lateral axis and the upper. This torsional construction principle helps to prevent the foot from tilting on the pedal.

There are even dedicated climbing and pedal zones on the tread to deliver traction both on and off the pedal. Ion brings their expertise in protection to the shoe with the Toetal Protection (an injected toe cap) and No-Sew Reinforcements absorb and dissipate impacts. There is also an ankle pad to protect the foot on the crank side.

Surprisingly these shoes still breathe incredibly well with laser-cut ventilation holes so you can shred all day in comfort.

Features:

  • Newly developed SupTraction Rubber clipless sole. Designated areas for improved traction on and off the pedal: Great walking abilities even on slippery grounds.
  • No-Sew reinforcements on most exposed and stressed areas.
  • Store your laces and avoid interference with the chainring or roots.
  • Lasercut ventilation holes for additional climate comfort
  • Extra padding towards the cranks to protect the ankles.
  • Reinforced toe cap to absorb and deviate the forces when hitting a rock or a root.
  • Two components providing both damping of footpads and support of the arch. Results in less fatigue of the feet on long rides.
  • Weight: 469 g per shoe (size 42, without cleat)
  • Compatible with all common MTB pedal systems

Materials and Construction:

  • Upper: 100% Synthetic
  • Leather Phylon: 100% EVA
  • Rubber: 100% Secret

Cleat channel much too short.

by

I'm a little disappointed in these, the cleat channel is too short if you like to ride with your cleats behind the ball of you foot. Compared to a Shimano AM9, there is around 10mm less range in the rearward position, which makes for a significant difference in ride feel. Additionally, in the most rearward position there is almost no "float' in the cleat as it makes contact with the rubber surrounding the cleat channel, which has caused me to unclip unintentionally far too often (using Shimano XT Trail pedals).

They are comfortable and I found them true to size. Unfortunately I think I'll only end up using them on the commuter bike.

Awesome SPD's

Stoked with these ION rascal shoes. They are the smallest looking size US 13 shoes I've seen. No clown feet! These Ion's are so comfortable on or off my beast. Even thou they are near new you can tell there made to last. My previous SPD's were Lakes and they don't come close to the ION's
Sub note I'd just sent back some Afton US 13's which gutted me as they looked great but were too small. MTB direct were fantastic with the return.
Great value great shoe awesome service I'm stoked

Smallest looking size 12UK I've seen.
I was worried they wouldn't fit but fit like a glove. Awesome shoes quality looks great, comfortable riding or walking and fantastic price.

Great shoes.

I really like this shoes, after reading reviews I went for a smaller size: 44 instead of 45. They had me worried as they weren't easy to put on. Laces and straps need to be loosened every time. But once on they're cavernous, supportive and comfortable. Great for climbing up and down rock faces or loose, steep terrain. The strap is good as well, the rubber tab at the end that some reviewers complained about is fine. Makes them easy to adjust with gloves on.
