Shimano's SH-XC9 S-Phyre Road Shoe is an all out cross-country and cyclocross shoe, offering top-level performance for the discerning rider. Its one piece synthetic leather upper uses Shimano Surround wrap technology combined with perforated dimple vents to offer a glove-like fit that's free of pressure points. It's secured with two BOA IP1 dials for finely tunable tension that can be easily adjusted on the fly.

Bonding the upper to the ultra-rigid carbon sole, Shimano developed a technique that eliminates the traditional lasting board between the footbed and outsole for a lower stack height, improved stability, and increased power transfer. On the bottom, the durable yet grippy outsole was designed with input from Michelin to create an optimum tread design for traction, mud-shedding, and low weight. Inside quick-dry 3D mesh and Silvadurâ„¢ antimicrobial insoles ensure freshness that keeps up with the performance.

Claimed weight is 325 g (size 42). Compatible with standard 2-bolt MTB cleats.


  • A one-piece surround upper, narrow bottom, rounded heel and slim toe box provide a glove-like fit
  • Low stack height sole helps stabilize foot during the downward pedaling stroke
  • Extra-range BOA micro-adjusters with instant release spools
  • Asymmetric eyestay pattern prevents twisting of foot under high power pedaling
  • Proprietary Michelin outsole minimizes weight, and offers increased traction
  • Extra-long climbing spikes for cyclocross and wet-condition applications
  • Reinforced spike mount for extreme conditions

Comfortable out of the box, but durabilty concerns.

Very comfortable out of the box. Stiff as advertised. Upper is very supple and easily forms to foot, however scuffs very easily (rock gardens) and the reinforcement around the toes isn't particularly robust. The lugged sole is grippy, but the soft rubber may not fare well over long repeated hike-a-bikes on hard, rocky terrain. Sizing runs a full size different than Sidi (insole from XC9 size 44.5 is identical to Sidi Drakos 45.5).

Awesome fit and performance!

Spending long days in the saddle grinding gravel requires the most comfortable high performance shoes. Awesome fit and stiff soles are a must! Worth every penny!
