Cycling shoes provide power transfer from the cyclist to the pedal with preferably little loss of power, and they present a perfect connection with your bike. For this perfect connection with the pedal both road shoes as well as MTB-shoes are "clicked" to the pedal via pedal plates or cleats. A small lateral movement releases this connection easily.
Mountainbike shoes are based on the SPD system, meaning all MTB shoes are compatible with SPD pedal plates. Road shoes, on the other hand, feature either the Look or the SPD-SL system. But the most significant difference between MTB and road shoes is their sole: road shoes have an extremely stiff sole which guarantees an efficient power transfer. This way leg muscles simply do not tire as quickly and the cyclists can master longer distances more easily.
MTB shoes however feature a softer treaded sole so that stretches, in which the bike needs to be pushed or carried, can be easily mastered.
Cycling shoes are filled with technical innovations and are made from modern and light materials. Specially for training in winter there are wind and waterproof winter cycling shoes which are guaranteed to keep your feet warm.
Apart from road, MTB and triathlon shoes at Bobshop you will also find pedal plates compatible with your pedals as well as cycling shoe covers. Cycling shoe covers protect your shoes and shield your feet from rain, cold temperatures, wind and dirt.
