Firing on all cylinders.
Worn by pro teams like LottoNL-Jumbo, Orica-BikeExchange, and Giant-Alpecin, you know Shimano churned out a winner with their top-of-the-line SH-RC9 S-Phyre Wide Road Shoe. The one-piece synthetic leather upper features Teijin Avail Microfiber and Surround wrap technology for a glove-like fit on a broad range of feet. Perforated dimples facilitate ventilation and drainage. The dual BOA IP1 dials with Powerzone lacing ensure a secure and precise fit that's easy to adjust on the fly.
Shimano bonds the upper to the ultra-rigid carbon sole using a technique that forgoes the traditional lasting board between the footbed and outsole resulting in a lower stack height, improved stability, and increased power transfer. Inside, the quick-dry 3D mesh and Silvadur™ antimicrobial insoles keep your feet cool and fresh, even as you fire off attacks from the peloton.
