Specialized and Five Ten Release New Women’s Specific Flat Pedal Mountain Bike Shoes for 2015

Good news for women who shred! Both Specialized and Five Ten are releasing women's specific flat pedal mountain bike shoes for 2015

Finding women’s specific bike shoes for mountain biking if you like to ride without clipping in has always been a pain. If you have a shoe size of UK6 and above, you can often pick from the men’s/unisex options out there, but they can have quite a wide fit. However, if you are smaller of foot, you have an extremely limited choice.

Things look set to change with both Five Ten, the long established doyens of flat pedal MTB shoes, and Specialized both releasing women’s specific MTB shoes for 2015.

Five Ten Women’s Freerider

New for 2015, the women’s version of the super-popular freerider flat pedal MTB shoe will have smaller sizes available, starting at a US size 4 and going up to a US 10. There are a few other women’s specific design elements, including a narrower heel fit. This shoe joins the other women’s flat pedal mountain bike shoe Five Ten produce; the Karver. Prices are currently only in dollars and come up at $110 for the canvas version, and $100 for the standard version.

Specialized Women’s 2FO Flat

This shoe represents Specialized’s first foray into the world of all-mountain shoes, and they feature the new Specialized Slipnot rubber, which they’ve developed with their highly experienced tyre department. The inner ankle area of the shoe is raised slightly for protection from the chain and cranks, and there’s a little loop thingy for keeping your laces out of the way.

Sizes: EU 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42
RRP: £90
Availability: October, from your local Specialized dealer
