Combining great performance with solid protection, Five Ten's Hellcat shoes were designed for the downhill cyclist who loves to tackle the most rugged trails. The tough action leather upper is built for maximum protection from whatever may get thrown at you when riding downhill. Laces distribute tension evenly across your foot, while avoiding hot spots, and a hook and loop closure keeps laces from getting drenched when you hit puddles, or from getting caught in chains. The Stealth S1 rubber outsole was specially designed to give you maximum off-bike traction for hiking, and helps reduce vibrations when you're riding over bumpy terrain. These shoes also feature a nylon shank to increase pedaling efficiency, and allows you to clip in with 2-bolt cleats to keep your feet from flying off the pedal.
