Excellent entry-level road shoe for the budget-minded.
This shoe is a very good deal when bought from BTD at [$]! I have an older pair that is the HV version, which means it is for fatter feet, hence, High Volume.
I used the first pair for well over 1 year and rode about 2k miles with them. No complaints at all, except I don't have fat feet and the take up ratchets always bottomed out. They were OK with heavier socks, thicker insoles. The shoe is very durable, rode in wet conditions a number of times and they held up well. Even though the sole is nylon instead of carbon, it is very stiff and worked well to transfer power, no noticeable flexing.
I think these new shoes will be great and no more bottomed out ratchets on the adjustment!
The size chart is very accurate for me. I wear a US size 12.5 and the European 46.5 fits me absolutely dead-on.
Thank you for your feedback.
