The not-so-minor details
Five Ten Impact VXi Clipless Shoe
Five Ten, known for their gooey, gluey, tacky and sticky soled shoes for flat pedal thundering also do clip less shoes, and good ones too. Their latest shoes have been spotted on the feet of Greg Minnaar, Bryn Atkinson, and our new buddy, Nico Vouilloz. Light enough for trail riding, and offering great foot protection when downhilling, these shoes look the goods.
Available also in a flat pedal, non-clipless sole, the Impact Vxi aims to drop weight out of their popular range. The Hellcat was Five Ten’s latest clip less shoe, but was criticised for its weight, so they’ve used lighter materials and less of it to produce these new shoes. These fast foot Ferrari’s are only 431 grams in size 42.
The shoes fit, so we’ll be stomping around the trails on these fresh kicks from now on. Stay tuned for more.
