Aspiring roadies will rejoice at Shimano's high-performance RC7 offering that borrows heavily from its top-end RC9 S-Phyre sibling. A synthetic leather upper features Shimano Surround wrap technology combined with perforated dimple vents to give you a glove-like fit, and it's secured with hook-and-loop strap at the base and one BOA closure up top for precise tension adjustment that can be quickly changed on the fly. An ultra-rigid carbon midsole provides supreme power transfer, which you can take full advantage of thanks to Shimano's Dynalast shaping that facilitates a more efficient pedal stroke.

Claimed weight is 245 g (size 42). Compatible with standard 3-bolt road cleats.


Details:

  • Ultra-rigid, lightweight carbon fiber composite sole
  • Boa IP1 dials allow quick, micro tension adjustments
  • Powerzone wire guide with front strap holds foot securely
  • Lightweight and supple perforated synthetic leather upper, featuring superior fit and added cooling
  • Optimum linkage of air flow between upper, insole and outsole
  • Adaptable Cup Insole

My 1st pair
by Zues Duval

I bought this pair just before Thanksgiving last year. I'm happy to say that they are spot on in comfort, fit, and durabilty. They are light weight and the soles allow for adjustable placements of the cleats. The boa dial is neat and with a twist you may adjust the fit to your needs. I especially like that with just a pull on the boa dial it releases it's tension and you slide your foot easily out of the shoe. Or you may reset the tension should you require a loose fit.Unfortunately I have no experience with other shoes so my opinion is biased. But,rest assured that if this were to be your first road shoes purchase, I'm sure you'd buy these shoes again.My humble opinion of course.

Fantastic road shoe at a reasonable price.
by Anonymous

Immediate impact on my performance. This shoe has a design that seems to promote proper technique while maintaining comfort. My average speed has increased by 1 mph. Love the design, the uppers are a little hard at first, but after a few rides the shoe breaks in nicely.

Bought these for my wife. We both wear the mtb version off road. Great fit and plenty stiff. I sense zero flex for my 185lbs. My only quibble is that they didnt put the cats-tongue fabric on the heal of the RC as they did on the XC version.

Review for Shimano SH-R171 Road Shoe
7 of 7 customers found this review helpful.

I ride 250 miles per week and love how these Shimano shoes fit and perform. They are lightweight, transfer energy with minimum sole flex, and are even easy to keep clean. While the inner sole is very good, I always add a Specialized inner sole to add support and comfort. I would not hesitate to recommend these shoes. In fact when they recently went on sale, I purchased a second set for future use.

I have only used this shoe inside so far this year, so my review is only based on trainer rides. The shoe fits very well. Usually I have issues with new shoes but this one the fit was great at the start. My only problem I have seen so far is the tongue. The tongue falls into the shoe when I put them on. I have learned to completely unbuckle the shoe and even undue the larger Velcro to stop this. This procedure might cause the buckle or Velcro to wear out sooner, but only time will tell.

I really like the shoe style, comfort, stiffness and price. The toe has too much volume for my foot . I will have to try alternative foot beds to get it just right.

I have a very average foot and Shimano soes fit me real well, I've been happy with the shoe.
by Jeff

I use this shoe for my triathlons that I do. I like the quick tightening and loosening feature of the Boa. I prefer this shoe over triathlon specific shoes because it is stiffer. The only very slight drawback that I have encountered is putting on rain, cold weather and aero booties. My booties fit quite tight and tend to pull up and release the Boa system when I'm putting the booties on and off.

Best road shoe

Review for Shimano SH-R321E Wide Road Shoe
1 of 3 customers found this review helpful.

In the ultimate search for a road shoe i had a few boxes to tick

- No BOA system, they just fail too often and that can end a race

- offers normal and wide sizes

- Heat molding

- super stiff

- good heel system that is not irritating

- long lasting material

This shoe is quite simply the ultimate road racing shoe. The fit options are quite vast and i have seen people who have narrow feet quite happy with this shoe and people like myself with wide feet happy. The retention system is exceptional and exactly what you would expect from Shimano. The molding is quite nice if needed. I did decide on Specialized insoles as they are a cut above in my opinion. The external material is very sturdy and i think will hold up very well over the years. The seams are very well done and the shoe is brutally stiff. Venting is very good and there are no uncomfortable pressure points. Overall i am going to order a second pair just so i have this shoe for the next 5-7 years, it is that good.

As an FYI i have used Mavic, specialized, SIDI, Giro, and considered Bont. I have a foot that is right between a normal and wide, the shimano wide is very nice and not too roomy while not being overly long. I am a size 9m in running shoes and use a 43w in shimano, though i like to have a little bit of extra room for winter riding with wool socks. My ideal size would be a 42.5 w for a 9m running shoe.

Barely a difference between these and the 321....

Review for Shimano SH-R171 Road Shoe

Picked up (and reviewed) the 321's prior to these, and those put my feet into a new level of bliss while riding. Figured I'd use some points and get the little brother down the road for bad weatherbackup.

The little brother model is barely a little brother, they are also awesome. Fit is the same as the 321, I'm a 10.5 US, I went with 45's in the Shimano's, no issues.

Sole stiffness seems to be the same, I have no hot spots at all.

The 171 isn't as ventilated as the 321, so that could be nice come cooler weather, but I can't say I noticed either way so far.

Weights feel about the same.

Great shoes, if you're never going to heat mold the 321's, these will save you some cash and get you pretty darn close in features.

This road shoe has a nice wide toe box, however, the shoe tongue does not extend far enough to prevent the sharp edge of the outer top strap from biting into the top of your foot.

Review for Shimano SH-R171 Road Shoe

These are wonderful cycling shoes approximate 500 miles in them. Wider toe box than my Sidi's and Mavic's which I find more comfortable. I feel more pedaling efficiency (as proclaimed) with these shoes than previously mentioned shoes. The lining is very plush adding to the comfort. The adjustable placement for the ratchet buckle across the top of your foot really helps dial them in, so make sure you try both settings. It was tough not buying the 321's since I paid more my Sidi's but I wouldn't have been able to take advantage of the moldable insole, so the 171's made more sense and are working out great.
