The new Filter flat shoe was designed to provide protection, comfort and performance in a casual package. With strength and stiffness in all the right areas to handle the big landings and great power transfer but just enough flex in the sole to provide grip on the pedals and comfort when off the bike. Asymmetrical construction with raised inner ankle protection prevents the ankle from hitting the crank arm and chainstay. A wide reinforced toe box not only provides maximum protection but allows for all foot shapes and provides room for expansion. Comfort was a priority in the shoe with a cushioned breathable mesh tongue and an ergonomically shaped heel cup with softer foam that keeps your foot in place without the need to over tighten the laces. A new softer rubber compound on the sole provides grip and just enough flexibility in unclipped situations hiking up the trail.
