The ME5 Cycling Shoe from Shimano is some serious enduro kicks when you're after some serious enduro kicks. Its refined construction and design situates itself as Shimano's ride hard and put up wet shoes, at home on park laps and shuttle loops alike. It boasts its much-lauded Torbal midsole technology, which is engineered to flex in engineered ways to translate body English to the bike while you're mobbing through technical terrain on any trail. Its sole forgoes an expensive carbon version in favor of a nylon and synthetic blend that's still efficient but offers that all important give for comfort on extended downhills and lowers the barrier of entry. Not to be overlooked, its Michelin dual-density rubber outsole offers unmatched traction, long-wearing durability, and slip-free footing over rock scree fields, slippery roots, and long creek crossings on foot. It achieves a stiffness rating of six out of 12 on Shimano's scale meaning you won't sacrifice watts to a flexy sole without negating the benefits of clipless altogether. The synthetic leather upper receives reinforcement in the form of rubber on venerable areas providing some much-needed reinforcement. Closures consist of a Boa dial with Powerzone wire guides and a hook-and-loop strap to dial in the fit and offer on the fly adjustments as needed.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
