Whether you're bent on rocking hardcore desert singletrack or flying over barriers in an expansive box of sand, the Scott Men's MTB RC Shoes are up to the challenge with heaps of technology and style. Boasting a stiff carbon sole, lightweight upper, and secure boa closures, these shoes transfer power with swift efficiency while keeping your feet cool and comfortable on even the longest rides.
Scott utilizes a strategic mix of lightweight microfiber and 3D nylon airmesh to construct the MTB RC's upper. These materials enclose Scott's Wrap Fit design, which is essentially an internal layer of synthetic leather that provides extra support while conforming to your foot shape to reduce pressure points and increase comfort. A BOA IP1 closure system weaves its way across the top of the shoe, and a second BOA secures the midfoot for easy adjustment on the fly. Inside, Scott's Adjustable ErgoLogic removable insole provides a customizable arch for additional tweaks to the fit.
Underfoot, Scott incorporates a light, stiff HMX carbon fiber sole for efficient power transfer regardless of terrain. A lugged, X Traction outsole sits over the carbon to protect it from rocks and provide excellent grip when you're off the bike, and threading for two toe spikes provides extra traction options on muddy trails or steep inclines.
- Q & A
Scott MTB RC shoe
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Pros: shoes look good and have a nice fit to them with the boa system.
Cons: construction of these shoes is lacking. The soles come apart within the first couple of rides. This is my second pair of these shoes and both of them have done it. These shoes are defantly not worth their asking price.
