If you're after a high-performance XC racing shoe with advanced fit and pedalling technology then look no further. The Shimano SH-XC3 SPD Shoes feature a seamless midsole and upper construction for a close-fitting, glove-like fit, exceptional stability, and lightweight performance. The BOA L6 adjustment system provides a sleek profile and lightning-fast adjustment. The lightweight glass fibre reinforced nylon sole has a low stack height to help stabilise the foot for maximum power transfer, and the rubber XC racing pattern outsole promotes stable pedal engagement and secure walking grip.
Who's it For: The XC3 is designed with XC racing in mind but it'll also be a great choice for Trail and Gravel riding.
Pedal Interface: These are clipless and will be compatible with any brand/model of MTB cleats.
Closure: The shoes secure with an off-set centre flap mounted BOA L6 dial.
Upper Materials: Perforated synthetic leather composite upper with surround wrapping structure provides a glove-like fit and excellent breathability.
Sole Materials: Glass fibre nylon reinforced midsole with a rubber outsole.
Sole Type: XC racing pattern outsole promotes stable pedal engagement and secure walking grip.
Weight: 332g (size 42)
Last/Width type: The XC3 uses Shimano's Dynalast, an anatomically curved last that eliminates hard angles and conforms better to the natural contours of the foot. The heel sits deep in the shoe and shoes hug the foot.
This is quite a narrow, close-fitting shoe but it's also available in a wide E-width option which provides an extra 6% of width across the ball of the foot and an extra 5% of volume in the toe box.
Cleats: Fits any 2 hole MTB Style Cleat. Cleats are not included.
