The Shimano SH RP5 Men's Cycling Shoes feature a carbon plate within a reinforced nylon sole to up the stiffness factor compared to its RP3 and RP2 siblings. Their outsole stiffness rating of seven out of 12 places the SH RP5s solidly in the middle of comfort and competition, marking this as a versatile shoe that's appropriate for a wide range of cycling ventures. Compatible with two bolt and three bolt cleats, these shoes match with a wide range of pedal types including most spin bike pedals. The SH RP5's closure system consists of a middle hook and loop strap that passes through a mid foot D ring for exceptional stability and adjustability while minimizing tension across the foot. An additional hook and loop strap crosses the forefoot, and a ratchet strap fastens across the top of the shoe for a customized fit and even pressure distribution. A surround upper pattern provides additional comfort and completes these shoes' streamlined look.
