A micro-adjustable Boa dial with hidden wire routing offers quick and easy adjustments so you can tighten the shoes and prepare for the final kick. Combined with the hook-and-loop lower strap, pressure is evenly distributed without any pinch points or hot spots. A lightweight carbon composite outsole for optimized for stiffness and scores a 9 out of 12 of Shimano’s stiffness scale.
