Description

Race-Ready Cross Boss & XC Power Platform

Shimano's SH-XC702 MTB shoe is a race-ready CX or XC race shoe that's geared up with all of the performance features you could want or need. The carbon-reinforced midsole places the XC702 near the top of Shimano's stiffness hierarchy. This lands the XC702 firmly into race-ready territory, with highly efficient power transfer and just a hint of forgiveness for increased utility when running over barriers or climbing steep embankments.

Though it's not as stiff as the S-Phyre, the XC702 does feature a more robust complement of lugs, so it's better suited for navigating sloppy run-ups or trails on foot. The rubberized outsole also includes toe spike mounts for muddy days when not even the lugs are enough, and the compound comes from the experts at Michelin.

The upper is secured with a BOA IP1 dial and a single hook-and-loop strap over the forefoot, letting you quickly dial fit across the midfoot while leaving ample room for metatarsal expansion while mashing out of corners or jockeying for position during a bunch start.

Features:

  • Super rigid, lightweight off-road racing shoes for maximum performance
  • Perforated synthetic upper for a superior fit and cooling
  • Rigid, lightweight carbon fiber reinforced midsole doesn't waste watts
  • BOA L6 dials allow for quick micro-adjustments
  • Powerzone wire guide with front strap for a secure hold
  • Michelin high-traction, mud-shedding tread pattern outsole
  • 2-bolt mountain cleat compatibility
  • Intended use: cyclocross, cross-country, trail riding
  • Available in Black or Red colorways
  • Sizes: 42-48

Nice shoes!

Decided to move up in quality for my gravel riding. Just a couple of rides so far but fit is good, easy to walk in and love the double BOAs.

Great fit, love the Boa adjuster

The shoes hug the feet well without creating pressure points. I ordered a size 47, which is what I select for Sidi, and I think the Shimano sizing is a little more aggressive. My toes very slightly touch the end, which is actually correct sizing for cycling shoes, but the Sidis give me a few more millimeters. If you wear heavy socks for the winter, consider sizing up.

Speaking of winter, the shoes don't work well in cool weather unless you at least use toe covers. However, that is a plus for warm weather.

The Boa adjustment is far better than Sidi's. Yes, unlike Fizik's, it's unidirectional, only allowing for tightening, but when do you ever micro-loosen a strap? Pop the button, and it fully releases.

The construction is really good, and I especially like the thin rubber on the bottom that prevents gouging and scuffing of the sole.

Great fit and comfortable

When I was younger, I always used SIDI shoes but after having ankle issues Their arches were to high for my feet. I switched to Shimano some years ago and have been very pleased. The fit for my 10.5 feet is perfect in a Shimano size 46 in in road and mtb shoes. The SH-XC702 are the most comfortable I have ever worn. The price from BTD, when on sale, cannot be beat.

Step up from XC3's

I started off with a pair of SH-XC300 shoes that I really enjoyed, but the single BOA wasn't keeping them secure in all the right places for my feet. The double BOA on the XC7 shoes is an improvement. It's nicer being able to adjust the tension in two different locations. So far I've used them entirely indoors (they look so fancy) but they have been worth the upgrade. My feet feel better during longer (2-3 hour) and repeated rides. If I could back off the tension without completely releasing it, that would be worthy of 5-stars.

Mtb Shimano Shoe

Shimano's XC702 shoe fits like a glove. Very short break in period. Not too heavy, and very stiff for a middle level shoe. My second pair and like the upgrades of the outer shell, inner heal cup and sole. Good enough to go for long mtb rides and XC races.

Good shoe not sold on top adjuster

Good stiff shoe. Use it for gravel riding. Am a 10.5 with a narrow foot. 45 worked well with a little room for a heavier winter sock. The adjustment mechanism could be better. My Fiziks allow me to micro adjust open and close. These do only will adjust tighten. To loosen you have to unlock and tighten again. Also prefer dial to be attached to side of shoe rather than the flap(top dial).still a good shoe for the amount I paid on sale.

Sweet shoe with amazing fit

The SH-XC702 MTB shoe is a solid product. Amazing fit and comfort while having a secure feeling with the BOA retention system. I feel extremely confident when shredding the trails when wearing these shoes. Get stoked and get yourself these shoes!

Great shoe, comfortable fit,good power transfer.

Witched to mountain bike pedals on my road bike, to be able to walk around off the bike. The carbon fiber sole section improves power transfer. The tightening system is new to me but is very secure and a lot easier than strings or Velcro. I usually wear a 42 but ordered a 43 which seems fit nicely. Would recommend this shoes for the more serious riders.

Nice shoe for price

I wish they had the dial that tightens and untightens but for the price (and I got them on sale) they are a nice shoe. Fit for me is the same size as my other shoes and they fit pretty good.

Nice MTB shoe!

This is a great MTB shoe for pedaling efficiency. Being the wide version, it has nice space in the toe box. They look great and are easy to clean with a wipe down with a wet cloth. The lugs provide good grip when you need to huff it a bit. If there is anything to complain about maybe they aren't the most breathable, and the toe box vents a rather paltry. Otherwise, great shoe!

XC7 shoe

Was hoping it would be as amazing and identical to the road equivalent RC7 but it is not. The RC7 fits like a $500 road shoe. Amazing! The XC7 is not the glove-like upper that I had hoped for. Still, an excellent shoe with superior cleat-alignment reference marks.
