When you’re out on the trail, you need your gear to simply perform without your having to think about it. Shimano’s WM83 mountain shoe does just that. Rely on it to efficiently send pedal power to the drivetrain through a rigid fiberglass-reinforced shank that backs up a carbon fiber composite midsole, while its stretch-resistant synthetic leather upper comfortably protects your feet from the natural elements of the trail. Dial in the women's-specific fit with three straps, including a micro-adjust buckle top strap and Shimano’s Cross X Strap, thoughtfully designed to reduce pressure points both on and off the bike. And, for the times when you're on foot, you’ll appreciate the mud-shedding lugs and optional spike mounts for self-cleaning traction in all conditions. The sole also features a durable, carefully shaped arch pad that offers un-clipped stability for those moments when you can’t clip into your pedal. With trail-savvy features and lightweight design, the XC51 will take your cross-country riding to a new level.
