LA NOSTRA OPINIONE
For the first time in ten years in the MTB world
I tried shoes and SPD pedals: WOW!
The AM9 SHIMANO are perfect for all-mountain, Enduro, Trail riding but especially for aggressive driving in Downhill (exactly what love to do).
Shimano adopts a revolutionary sole: with a special rubber compound, the shoe is soft but at the same time increases traction for excellent grip even on the ground.
In winter the AM9 are perfect to help us when all the lifts are closed and often push the bike: the tip and heel of AM9 are perfect to help us do more traction on any type of terrain thanks to special mixture of rubber which improves the grip.
The union of strings and Velcro makes the difference: besides giving a sleek and aggressive design, the Velcro keeps your foot in the right place and removes the feeling of losing your shoes and protects the strings
from mud and water.
The SPD protrudes very little from the sole and guarantees to walk comfortably and also reduces wear of engagement!
