With Shimano's revamped Road Performance (RP) line, the SH-RP9 is their flagship shoe, providing performance, efficiency, and unparalleled comfort. Redesigned for 2018, the new RP9 resembles Shimano's game-changing
S-Phyre RC9 Road Shoe, featuring their supple, stretch-resistant seamless one-piece upper and curved extended heel cup. Designed for comfort, this supple upper wraps around the foot, cradling it for a superior fit, and featuring ventilation-enhancing perforated venting dimples.
Complementing the superior fit and comfort, Shimano employed a Boa® IP1 dial and forefoot strap for excellent adjustability and sleek aesthetics. Inside the shoe, Shimano's high-density insole features adaptable arch pads for a customizable fit, as well as an increased cleat adjustment range for further fit options. Down below, the carbon outsole optimizes stiffness, providing efficient power transfer for long rides.
