If your current road shoes have made it through 3 presidential terms, you deserve to treat yourself to some new carbon soled wonders with dial closures and that's just what you'll get with the SH-RC7 Cycling Shoe from Shimano. As a slight running upgrade to the outgoing RC7, this model now receives a second BOA L6 dial for quick, micro tension adjustments of the Powerzone wire guide. These shoes are plenty light, stiff, and comfortable for racing and are a little friendlier on the pocketbook than its range-topping big brother, the SH-RC9, and at a size 42, it's a whopping 2 grams heavier per shoe. Its stiff Dynalast carbon sole and high-density synthetic leather upper with perforated venting for superior fit allow these shoes to strike a balance between race-day performance and training comfort utility all at a price that saves money for race day entry fees. Shimano fashions the SH-RC7's uppers from perforated synthetic leather that's used for its lightweight comfort as well as long-lasting durability. The shoe fastens with Powerzone wires that are taken up by micro-adjustable Boa L6 reels across the top and midfoot, with wide anchor points evenly distributing pressure, thus reducing hot spots. Underfoot, a stiff carbon fiber composite sole facilitates efficient power transfer with a high stiffness rating of a 10 out of 12 on Shimano's scale, meaning you won't be giving up any wasted watts to sole flex.

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.
