Ride Concepts Launch TNT Flat Shoes
Who's It For: Designed specifically for Downhill riders, but it would be at home on the bike park too.
Pedal Interface: These are flat pedal shoes.
Closure: They feature a traditional lace up closure with an added Velcro strap for extra support. The tongue is fully gusseted to prevent dirt or debris from entering the shoe while you are flying down the mountain.
Upper Materials: Made from a ventilated synthetic material. The materials used allow the shoe to dry quickly after riding in the wet and the ventilation helps keep you cool when you are doing back to back runs. The asymmetrical medial collar is made with D3O material for added protection on the inner side of the shoes.
Sole Materials: Features a DST 4.0 Max Grip rubber outsole with a custom molded rubber toe cap and heel protection. This is Ride Concepts tackiest sole for maximum grip. The high-rise EVA midsole provides support and shock absorption and is protected from intrusions by a TPP protector. The insole features D3O impact protective inserts to help with hard landings, so you can keep sending all day long.
Sole Type: Features Ride Concepts Hexagon shaped tread. This allows for maximum pin insertion from your pedals. Mixed with the Max Grip rubber compound, it provides an amazing amount of grip.
Weight: Not listed by Ride Concepts.
Fit Type: This is a Tech Fit.
Pros: Huge levels of grip, lots of protection, and still super comfortable.
Cons: These shoes will not breath as well as others and are probably not the best option if you do a lot of pedaling.
