FLR F-55.II Shoes Review

BikeRadar : FLR F-55.II shoes review. No-nonsense XC-geared footwear. Impressively stiff race-focused shoes for the money. The first thing you’ll notice is the stiffness of the reinforced nylon sole, which uses a raised inside lip to create a semi bathtub design for minimum flex. In fact, it isn’t far off lower priced carbon shoes in terms of pushing your power through to the pedals, so racers and speed freaks on a budget are going to really love them. If...

FLR F-35 road cycling shoes review

Bikeradar: FLR F-35 road cycling shoes review.  We tested the £79.99 FLR F-15s back in November and found them robust and comfortable.

FLR F-75 PRO SHOES

MBR Mountain Bike Rider: FLR F-75 PRO SHOES.  The F-75 Pro from FLR looks tough and aggressive, almost like a piece of military hardware…. As a mid-priced race show the F-75 is spot-on – it’s rigid, a reasonable weight and has a good tread design, which is aggressive but shallow enough to run comfortable. There’s also plenty of space around the cleat area to engage a range of pedals easily, even in the mud. All in all, a distinctive and well-considered...

Cycling Shoes

Considering taking your bike riding to the next level, but with some concerns?. ….I completely understand your hesitation. I too initially resisted clipless cycling shoes. What if I forgot to unclip?

But now, I think they are for anyone who plans to do some significant kilometers on their bike. Whether you are a roadie, a trail blaizing explorer or...

The shoes also feature a dual ATOP dial closure system...

Budget cycling shoes with premium features – FLR F-11 Pro Cycling Shoe Review

Affordable cycling shoes are typically referred to as ‘entry-level’ or ‘beginner-friendly’ and usually have compromises to reduce the cost.

For a fixture system, the F-11 Pro uses an ATOP dial on top and a single lower Velcro strap. Although it doesn’t have...

I ride everywhere under all weather conditions, from downtown to the countryside, stopping to shops, warehouses and offices. I always ride with my FLR Bushmaster Pro shoes,...
