These cycling cleats are my new top pick when out for a gravel ride. Lace design gives me optimal fit and adjustment when needed. Friends want to know... what brand it that cleat? NORTHWAVE. ROCKSTER!!
I am a ladies 8.5 / cycling shoe 41 and my specialized S-Works for road were not “giving” in the toe box - a much needed quality when riding in the heat!! For gravel I moved over to this Northwave shoe. It has the necessary grips protecting the cleats and does all a gravel shoe should do but it feels as light as my road shoes. And the leather gives. Very comfy, reasonably priced.
Ever since I saw Ted King destroy a white jersey in a major gravel race, I’ve like white.
These are comfy, stiff and wipe clean very easily.
They’re reasonably stable on hike-a-bike sections.
All in all, for the $ a great gravel specific shoe!
