What are the technical characteristics to be taken into account?

When buying road bike shoes, it is important to define your level of practice (leisure, regular or intense). This will allow you to choose the sole of your bike shoe.

The sole

Indeed, if you practice road biking for leisure/occasional use, you should favour a semi-rigid sole since it facilitates walking when you are not on your bike. On the other hand, if you are a regular/intense cyclist, then you should favour rigid soles to improve your pedaling efficiency.

Adjustment

The adjustment system is extremely important as it helps to keep your foot in place. As you have understood, the tightening must be precise and efficient. Today, there are 3 types of tightening which are all quite distinct. For a precise and efficient tightening, you should favour the velcro or knurled systems.

Adjustment by velcro/scratch tape is the one most used by cyclists because it is easy to use and is very light.

The wheel system ensures a uniform, precise and efficient tightening. Comfort is therefore optimal.

Tightening by laces is the least used system but guarantees a clean look.

The comfort

If you want to cover a lot of miles on your road bike rides, opt for light and rigid shoes. Your foot must be well supported for efficient pedalling. The shoe must wrap your foot sufficiently to avoid blisters that could interfere with your activity.

You now know everything about road bike shoes so the cards are in your hands to choose the model you need. Alpinstore offers you a wide choice, with the Vaude brand.
