By combining the lightweight and pedal effectiveness of an XC shoe with the durability, grip and armor aggressive trail riders require, Shimano developed the SH-M200 MTB Shoes for off-road and enduro applications that demand more speed on the climbs and more control on the descents. Lightweight and rigid carbon-reinforced midsole plate with “Torbal” technology provides a better connection to the pedal and allows lateral movement for improved control. Durable arch pad beneath the shoe offers excellent grip and enhances stability when the unclipped shoe and pedal come into contact. Low-profile armor on the upper and the raised rubber sole protects the toes from impacts and supports more aggressive riding. Asymmetrical collar design with a higher inside section works to shield the rider’s ankle from knocks. Heel design incorporates a raised sole that guards the heel and accommodates heel movement, which enhances bike control on technical sections. Expanded SPD cleat adjustment range accommodates race or trail-minded riding styles. Speed lacing closure system adapts to a wide range of foot shapes and ensures a quick and secure fit.
