Gravel Performance Plus Protection

The Shimano SH-RX801R is the rally edition of their gravel racing shoes, featuring a knitted ankle cuff to keep debris out and provide all-day comfort and protection from the elements in a broad range of riding conditions. Following the success of the original RX8, Shimano is back with updates to make the best even better.

The shoe is built around a super stiff and lightweight carbon composite sole for high-speed gravel racing. Below are lightweight, abrasion-resistant TPU lugs for the best balance of pedaling performance and off the bike capability. Above is a surround wrapping upper pattern with supple synthetic leather that balances holding power and comfort. Plus you'll be sure to stand out with vivid inkjet printed graphics with bold design.

The whole package is held together with low-profile BOA® Li2 dials with rubber grip allowing quick and precise micro-adjustments. And from foot to shoe to pedal, the RX801 is engineered with SPD pedals for maximum pedaling efficiency and stability.


  • Knitted ankle cuff
  • Wear and weather resistant synthetic leather upper
  • Carbon sole with Shimano Stiffness Index: 10
  • BOA Li2 dials
  • SPD (2-bolt) cleat compatible

Finally a bike shoe that fits my wide feet

I've been struggling to find an XC race shoe that fits my wide foot for years. I've always had to settle with my feet hurting, but these fit like a glove.

The gaiter/cuff is kind of annoying for a few reasons. It makes the shoes harder to take on and off, plus sometimes the fabric pinches/bunches near the bend in my ankle and isn't the most comfortable. Finally I can see this trapping heat and making the shoe hot around the ankle/top of the foot.

These gripes are minimal due to the overal comfort of the shoe itselt. Very happy with the purchase.

10/10 Shoe

Extremely comfortable but also stiff and puts power down nicely right out of the box. BOA dial works smoothly and is extremely adjustable.
