World Cup-Grade Performance

When we glance at the starting line of a World Cup cyclocross or cross-country race, we often notice the flashing bright blue Shimano SH-XC902 S-Phyre on various rider's feet, eagerly awaiting the whistle. There is good reason too, if you've ever gotten a pair of these shoes in your hands, or better yet, on your feet, you'll experience that world-class fit, low weight, and efficiency that the pros count on to earn a paycheck.

The Shimano XC902 S-Phyre has received a few minor updates since Shimano first launched its S-Phyre lineup—notably a more perforated upper that improves the fit and breathability, and then beefier armor at the toe box.

On the rear of the shoe, Shimano uses an external cup that covers the carbon sole and the back of the heel. This design supports the heel, preventing twisting and rolling, stabilizing it for more efficiency. Inside the shoe at the heel a cat tongue-like gripping fabric further bolsters the foothold, providing a solid foundation for dishing out the big watts at the race start and on the pedaling upstroke while trying to maintain traction on a slippery surface.

Shimano tapped the folks at Michelin to create a grippy lug compound for off-bike traction, and we find it works well for quick dismounts and running sprints. The ability to run toe spikes comes in handy too when we're scrambling up steep, loose, or muddy terrain.


  • Shimano's premier cyclocross and XC race shoe
  • Stiff, efficient carbon-reinforced sole for power transfer
  • Increased perforation on the upper improves breathability and fit
  • Dynalast construction aids with smoother, more efficient pedaling
  • Dual-density Michelin rubber outsole blends grip and durability

  • Beefier toe armor improves durability and saves toes
  • Finished with reinforced toe spike mounts
  • Available in Blue or Black colorway
  • Sizes: 42-47

Nice shoe no foot pain

I started ridding with only toe clips and have had many shoes, this shoe is painless and just the best feeling shoe after a long ride. This is the best shoe I have had for no foot pain when ridding long gravel surfaced paths. Value based on no pain.

Road Shoe Light Weight. Slightly wider than S-works.

Mostly for Gravel. Crazy light. I use leg length shims from "Fit Kit", not BikeFit. They work seemlessly even when walking. "Leg Length Shim - MTB Walkable - V1 - BULK" The BikeFit ones don't work. I have no idea why they are made. I use Shimano SPD MTB cleats and pedals and they simply won't clip in, so gotta use Fit Kit.
