Shimano Men's R078 club sport level Road Bike Competition SPD-SL Shoe Black
Item Description

Shimano R078 Road Cycling Shoe

Shimano offers the widest range of quality cycling footwear in the world. There is a shoe and pedal for every riding style, and each rider benefits from Shimano's proven excellence in design, manufacturing and uncompromised quality control. It's a legacy that makes a difference to hundreds of Pro Tour and World Cup racers throughout the world.

The Road Competition series combines the three most important properties of a competitive racing shoe: Stability, Rigidity and Light Weight.

The R078 combines all the features from Shimano's top end shoes ridden and developed by the top pros. These technologies have been refined and made more affordable for the everyday recreational cyclist. With Shimano's legendary comfort and shoe fit, you can expect this to be the perfect match for your 6 hour epic rides or just quick blasts thought town, getting from A to B. The lightweight glass fibre reinforced sole ensures that all your power gets transferred to the pedal. Choose between a Shimano SPD mtb style pedal or your classic road SPD-SL pedal, this shoe works with both. This enables a larger range of compatibility making it easier and convenient for you!

  • Classic design with the Shimano trademarks: Innovation, Quality and Style.
  • Tough stretch resistant synthetic leather and mesh.
  • Triple asymmetrical straps prevent uncomfortable pressure on the foot.
  • A snug, durable, breathable shoe which transfers power to the pedal and comfort to the rider.
  • Shimano Dynalast secures the foot into the ideal ergonomic position for a more efficient up stroke.
  • Shimano Dynalast technology sole.
  • Low profile, Lightweight glass fibre reinforced-polyamide sole.
  • SPD and SPD-SL cleat compatible.
  • Weight 461g for a pair in size 40 (As stated by manufacturer).
  • Full-Featured Shoe, Perfect for Club and Recreational Cyclists.

- Technologies: SPD SL, Dynalast

Shimano Technology:
The ultimate goal of Shimano's SPD-SL pedal technology is to transfer more power from the body directly to the bike. Inspired by a Tour de France legend and realized through the legacy of Shimano Systems Engineering, SPD-SL integrates the shoe and pedal so they perform as a single ultra-efficient component.

The extra-wide low-profile cleat and binding mechanism creates a highly stable interface between the shoe and pedal, in a super lightweight design. No wasted movement. No loss to flex, voids or mismatched shoe/pedal designs. It's why so many Pro Tour and serious riders use SPD-SL.

For those looking for more fun than victory, our road SPD systems offer the efficiency advantage of clipless pedals with shoes that offer walking comfort.

Cycling footwear optimised for ultimate power transfer.

What could be more important than the point where power transfer begins. other cycling shoes are built on the same platform as walking shoes. Dynalast on the other hand is optimised for road cycling and nothing else! By optimising the toe spring angle and securing the foot in an ideal position, Shimano Dynalast reduces unwanted loss of power as the rider pulls up in preparation for the next down stroke.

Testing has proven that lost energy can be reduced by over 5% making the Dynalast footwear design the most efficient shoe on the market. In the real world that can mean a 5 seconds gained every 25Kilometers which could be the difference between finishing on or off the podium.

As tension is reduced in the plantar, calf and hamstring muscles, the benefits of the Dynalast platform move from the foot through the leg and promote a fluid, fuller hip rotation. Less tension in your foot, legs and hip equal more chances the next century will feel like a warm up instead of a suffer fest.

Dynalast hollow channel carbon sole technology increases the overall surface area, adding strength and rigidity while decreasing weight. A new carbon fibre reinforced nylon monocoque heel cup design provides better heel hold, stability and power. And, an extra 11mm of cleat adjustment allows riders to maximise comfort with the ideal shoe to pedal position.

Shimano Dynalast optimises the connection to the total drive train for riders, racers and tri athletes making a more powerful and efficient pedalling motion. Featured throughout the line, now  everyone from weekend warriors to pro tour riders can experience the Dynalast difference.
