Closeouts. Prepare for warp speed in Carnac's Pulsar mountain bike shoes. A unique closure system utilizes powerful magnets and a ratchet buckle for an out-of-this-world fit, and the Duo Sole means they can be transformed into a touring shoe.

My feet are loose in my shoes. From reading the other rating I thought they 40 would fit perfect but they are a finger to big. My size should be 39 in this brand. I am not going to return them though since I do like them. Already wore them for a leisure ride of 15 miles. Glad the straps help tighten my foot in.

So, my first reaction to this shoe was a positive one (see my previous review). These are comfortable and they fit well. However a few rides in on them and I started to get a creaking sound from the tread when I walked in them. Grabbed a screwdriver to tighten the screws that hold the replaceable treads, they were all surprisingly loose. As I spun them up, one was spinning free, the threads (in the shoe, not the screw) were stripped. Disappointing for a shoe at this price point, are at any price point really. Sending them back to STP.

This is a nice shoe. I'm still not entirely sure on the closure system. To tighten these takes two hands, so no on the fly adjustment like my Sidi or Lake road shoes. But once the fit is right, they fit me well. STPs Carnac sizing is not very clear. I'm a 12.5 to 13 US. I wear a 48 in Sidi and 47 in Lake, in the Carnac I'm a 46, and the shoe was labeled a 46/13. They are a perfect fit, but I bought and returned a larger size first.

This shoe is great if you have narrow feet. I wear a women's slim width and was able to get this shoe tight enough so that it doesn't slide around. The sole is stiff too, which helps a ton with track stands and balance moves.
