Shimano RC7 Road Shoes
Shimano's RC7 Road Shoes continue the company's march on producing high-end products across their entire range, much like the Dura-Ace groupset. These road cycling shoes are engineered for success; a lightweight and stiffer performer, the RC7 road shoe will help you seek out that final ounce of effort to break the shackles of the peloton.
Light and Stiff - the Optimal Road Cycling Shoe
The RC7 is as fast as it looks as top-end technology backs up the aesthetics. Featuring a carbon composite sole and perforated synthetic leather upper, this Shimano road cycling shoe is ultra-rigid with an impressive stiffness ratio of 10 out of 12. Add in Shimano's Dynalast technology and you have a truly special road cycling shoe. For performance, this allows more of your power to transfer through the sole of your shoe and through your transmission to produce relentless forward motion.
Whether you're forcing a breakaway or marching up a climb, this road cycling shoe offers the complete lightweight and rigid package without sacrificing comfort. The Boa closure system provides a quick and secure fit without the 'hotspots' of traditional shoes and the perforated upper maintains a cool atmosphere for your feet.

Shimano Dynalast: The toe-spring section of a cycling shoe plays a key role in supporting efficient pedalling. Too high, and it causes increased tension in the plantar, calf, and hamstring muscles. Too low, and you get a bowlegged, inefficient pedalling form. Extensive research by Shimano's R&D experts has produced a superior shoe last design with an optimised toe-spring section that promotes a smoother, more energy-efficient upstroke. Built based on feedback from pro riders, Shimano Dynalast helps reduce energy loss on long rides, letting you keep more in the tank for that final sprint to the line.
Upper Technology: The human foot is a super-complex, highly developed, biomechanically perfect structure of 26 bones. Shimano's job is to engineer footwear that works together with every bone, joint, tendon and cartilage. All Shimano footwear closures are anatomically designed to reduce pressure and tension on the highest points of the foot. By wrapping the foot securely and in a uniform method, comfort is improved and added power transmission created.
