Product Description
SH-XC7 Cycling Shoe - Men's by Shimano
Sitting just below the SH-XC9 as Shimano's top dog off-road shoe, the SH-XC7 Cycling Shoe receives many of the features from its top-tier sibling, giving it universal acclaim, but brings it more into reach for those of us trying to keep a budget. The XC7 is a race-ready shoe using a carbon-reinforced midsole to drop weight and improve pedaling efficiency. It registers at a 9 out of 12 on Shimano's outsole stiffness scale, only surpassed by the XC9 S-Phyre on the off-road scale where it sits at an 11 out of 12. For most of us, that's plenty stiff for race efforts with a touch more forgiveness for off the bike exploits like steep run-ups or scrambling over rocky creek beds. Though it's not as stiff as the S-Phyre, the XC7 does feature a more robust complement of lugs, so it's better suited for barrier hopping or during hike-a-bike efforts. The rubberized outsole also includes toe spike mounts for days when not even the lugs are enough and you need to cut through the muck. The compound comes from the rubber experts at Michelin. Michelin uses two different durometers throughout the sole, targeting different qualities of grip and durability depending on how the lugs will contact the ground--just like with the brand's tires. Shimano builds the last with its unique Dynalast construction, a design that increases pedal efficiency by a claimed 0. 56% on each stroke. While that doesn't seem like much at first, any cyclist who's ridden for longer than two hours understands the importance of marginal gains like this. They can be the difference between finishing at the front or struggling to hang on. Dynalast involves lowering the toe-spring and heel section in relation to the arch and metatarsal areas to create an optimal pedaling angle on either side of the up-swing to shorten inefficient dead spots. The upper is secured with dual BOA L6 dials, letting you quickly dial in the fit in micro-tension increments for the same level of comfort at the start of the ride as the last...

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.
