O’Neal Torque SPD Shoes – First Look –
I’ve got a full kit from ONeal on test at the moment and it’s all going well so far. For now, lets take a quick look at the Torque shoes, an important contact point with the bike.
ONeal’s Torque shoe comes as a flat skate shoe but with the possibility of converting to SPD through a cut out in the sole.
- SPD cleat compatible
- Durable and lightweight rubber tread
- Reinforced lace eyelets for added durability
- Higher cut inner ankle design for protection against crank
The small velcro strap up top helps to keep them nice and snug.
39, 40, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47
Initial feelings are good, the exterior seems good and tough, like it’ll put up with some punishment. The sole seems good and grippy so far, one of the main things you want from a pair of flat pedal shoes I guess.
Stinger SPD Shoes – £99.95
The Pro MX sock shown in the images is available in many different colour variations, larey to the very larey. £16.95.
