Welcome to our full range of specialised road shoes designed for use in tandem with the latest road cycles. Road shoes, or road bike shoes, are part of essential cycling wear and it’s becoming increasingly common to spot cyclists of all types - commuters, touring riders, racers and those out for an afternoon ride - sporting a sleek pair of road shoes, engineered to help boost their performance.
Road bike shoes offer the wearer a whole host of benefits, such as keeping your feet cool through innovative, breathable materials, and really optimising your power transfer through pedalling motions. These factors really do matter on longer rides, or in competition, and the advantages of investing in a first-rate pair of road shoes become increasingly evident the longer you wear them. Road shoes also feature cleverly designed and engineered fastenings and ratchets, meaning you’ll be able to slip in and out of them with a snug fit in a flash.
We’d definitely recommend that before you head out on the roads whilst wearing clipless road shoes, you take some time practicing clipping in and out of your clipless pedals. If you’re not used to this motion, it might take a few practice sessions before you’re entirely comfortable, but it will become second nature once you’ve mastered it. If you don’t have a bike stand to practice with, you can simply rest your bike against a wall to allow you a safe method of getting the hang of it.
Here at Westbrook Cycles we have the latest Mavic Road Shoes, including this year’s Ksyrium Elite shoes; premium Scott Road Shoes; and the award-winning Fizik road shoes, which feature state of the art stainless steel outer composites.
