I got these shoes for Christmas and I think they are great. I have been mountain biking for 30 years and 17 of those years I was a mountain bike racer. Even though I am old I still ride hardcore off road on the trails. I wish these shoes were available back in the day when I was racing.

I got these about 2 weeks ago and I have 8 rides in them. The shoe is comfortable. The ratcheting strap and stiff bottom make for great power transfer. I ride a lot of trails with granite and I worry about slipping on the rock with hard soled shoes. These seem to stick pretty well - like the vibram soles on my last pair of shoes. I have no complaints. Rides nice and doesn't slip on hard surfaces.
