If you're looking for bombproof enduro hooves that can still throw down on race day, look no further than the Mavic Men's Crossride XL Elite Protect Shoes. Built with a smidge more flexibility than a race specific shoe, these shoes bring versatility and comfort to your favorite trails. Their Quick Lace system makes tightening down the fit a snappy, single pull endeavor, while a hook and loop strap across the top of the foot adds extra security and fit adjustment. A large, protective, hook and loop secured panel folds over the lacing system for added protection from errant branches, rocks, and other trail obstacles. Mavic adds a band of perforated neoprene extending around the ankle for an extra dose of protection for those bony protuberances. Underfoot, the Energy Grip Trail outsole efficiently transfers power and features Contragip rubber for exceptional grip when scrambling over rocky surfaces and extra confident pedal contact.
