What technical features should I bear in mind?
When buying road cycling shoes, it's first important to define your level of riding (leisure, regular or intense). This will help you choose the sole of your cycling shoe.
If you're a recreational/occasional road biker, you'll want a semi-rigid sole, as it makes walking easier when you're off the bike. On the other hand, if you're a regular/intense cyclist, then go for rigid soles to improve your pedaling efficiency. We offer eco-friendly Vaude road cycling shoes for your comfort.
The adjustment system is extremely important to keep your foot in place. As you can see, it has to be precise and efficient. Today, there are 3 different types of clamping. For precise, efficient tightening, you should opt for velcro or knurled systems.
Velcro adjustment is the most widely used by cyclists, because it's easy to use and very light.
The knurled system ensures uniform, precise and efficient tightening. Comfort is therefore optimal.
Lace tightening is the least-used system, but guarantees a streamlined look.
If you want to cover many kilometers on your road bike, opt for lightweight, rigid shoes. Your foot must be well supported for efficient pedaling. The shoe should envelop your foot sufficiently to avoid any blisters, which could hinder your activity.
