Mountain bike shoes ensure effective power transfer to the pedal and the right grip while riding the bike. But they should also offer a certain level of comfort when walking - in other words, they should be multitasking. Check out our wide selection of MTB products now!

What defines a  mountainbike-shoe?

Mountain bike shoes are cycling shoes that are designed specifically for the use of mountain bikes. It is not only important that you can ride well in the shoes - you should also be able to walk well in mountain bike shoes. After all, it is not uncommon to walk for short periods of time on certain stretches of rough terrain where the mountain bike cannot be ridden properly. Sufficient grip is therefore also important.

What do I have to consider when buying MTB-footwear?

There is not the perfect mountain bike shoe for everyone. In general, it can be said that the shoes should have a good fit on the foot, so that a certain hold in the shoe is guaranteed. In addition, the cycling shoes should also have an effective power transmission, since, unlike than with e-bikes, the rider is the only engine!
Mountain bike shoes are available in different designs - for example, with or without pedal system and with a stiff or even a soft sole. We will explain the differences.

Mountainbike-shoes with or without clicker system

Many mountain bike shoes are compatible with a click system, which allows a firm binding to the pedal. With the help of cleats, the shoes are connected to the pedal, which prevents the rider from slipping off the pedal.
However, a pedal system is not necessarily a must for mountain bike riders. Also cycling shoes in the mountain bike area without click system, so-called flat pedal shoes, can be quite efficient. The right sole with sufficient grip in combination with a lacing, Velcro or twist closure can also give you a very good grip on the pedal. Thus, flat pedal shoes are very suitable for beginners.

Stiff sole vs. soft sole

A stiff sole in mountain bike shoes provides better power transmission. At the same time, very stiff soles also have poorer rolling characteristics and lower comfort when walking.
Softer soles, on the other hand, are more comfortable, but also worse in power transmission. Thus, both stiff and softer soles have advantages as well as disadvantages.
So for the best possible power transmission with simultaneous comfort, an in-between hardness grade would be best.
