Best Road Bike Shoes Over £100 (August 2020)

Updated - August 1, 2020

Road-shoe soles are typically stiff (for maximising pedalling efficiency) and smooth (no tread equals lighter weight). Many—mostly higher-end models—utilise a triangular, three-bolt cleat-mounting pattern that’s compatible with the most common road-pedal systems—Look, imitation Look, and Shimano. Some road shoes offer a four-bolt sole compatible with ‘Speedplay’ pedals. Low- to midrange road shoes often have a two-bolt pattern, in addition to a three-bolt pattern, to also accommodate mountain bike-style cleats. This allows the rider to use dual-sided pedals (which are easier to step into) as well as pedals that have a clip less mechanism on one side and a platform on the other (for shorter rides in regular shoes).

Tempo Overcurve R5 is quick-fit road cycling shoe to suit every rider and every ride.This shoe has been designed to deliver the essential timeless look and versatile performance to make every outing an enjoyable ride. The classic considerations of a road shoe have been redefined with a distinct fi’zi:k identity and a smart form-fitting construction.Overcurve is a shoe construction featuring a staggered collar that wraps around the ankle, tracing the natural misalignment of the ankle’s two bony protrusions: the lateral and medial malleoli. The result is an asymmetrical shape, with the throat of the shoe curving over the foot from its outside to its inner side. The closure is fast and secure, powered by a micro-adjustable BOA IP1 dial and a Velcro strap for a fine tune fit of the forefoot area.The R5 Nylon composite outsole is supple and comfortable even in the long haul but without compromising pedalling efficiency. Fit: Normal Season: Year-round items.
