Spiuk have a new and improved flagship road shoe, the Spiuk 16RC, which replaces the 15RC and is designed to wrap light weight, stability and comfort into one package. The upper is heavily perforated to allow for maximum air flow – these are shoes designed for summer use, most likely in the heat of a race – while the ‘SLX2’ carbon fibre sole seeks to make use of every watt of power produced by the rider.
Two micro-adjustable dials control Kevlar cables to provide a finely-tuned fit. Claimed weight is as low as you’d expect at 470g for a pair in size 43. Like many of their shoes, the Spiuk 16RC is available in a variety of bold colours, giving you the chance to stand out in the bunch. We like that.
