Made for Our team designed these comfortable shoes with a hybrid sole (SPD compatible) for mountain biking for over 2 hours. Walk or ride? Do both! The hybrid sole grips the pedals and the ground. Enjoy the comfort and foot support offered by the ST 500 mountain biking shoes. Bonus: the quick-release system.
When the going gets tough, you may have to push or carry your mountain bike. For better grip and support for both walking and riding, we created a hybrid sole: it is compatible with flat and SPD pedals and draws inspiration from trail shoes for traction on the ground and mountain bike pedals. Not to mention comfort! With the internal and external layers with reinforced lugs, you'll have better support all year round!
Presenting the comfortable and durable ST 500
In addition to giving you traction when walking and pedalling, the ST 500 will also let you ride worry-free: the durable shell limits impacts and abrasion. The elasticated sockliner all along the opening makes it easy to slip them on and prevents dust and pebbles getting in.
To prevent unintended snags, you can tuck the quick-lacing system into the tongue!
Which pedals are compatible?
Which cleats and/or pedals can you use with your shoes?
If you use clipless pedals, we recommend using the following SPD pedals for optimal clipping in:
- SHIMANO FLAT/SPD M324
- SHIMANO SPD M520
These shoes are not compatible with Enduro/Freeride-style platform pedals (eg: SHIMANO SPD M424).
And of course, your shoes are compatible with all B'Twin cleats and pedals!
The story of the ST 500 mountain bike shoes
During more technically difficult rides, you may have to get off your bike. To develop a shoe that gives you traction and support both on and off your bike, our 4-person team worked on different technologies, prototypes, and lab and field tests for over 2 years with 50 different people.
The result is a shoe that provides grip while walking and cycling on MTB trails, as well as comfort while on foot.
One last tip before you hit the road
Cleats explained by our design team:
"Once you have an intermediate level in mountain biking, you start thinking about using cleats. We've created a versatile product that can advance with you. The cleat attaches to the hollow part of the sole without any adjustment: we decided to choose the most common position so that mountain bikers who are starting out with cleats do not use a position that is painful for their knees."
Our engineers have all of our products tested by mountain bikers in real conditions. These tests round out our lab tests and let us validate all our products before they hit store shelves.
