FIVE TEN IMPACT VXI TEAM BLACK
By the late 1990s, mountain bikers had discovered what climbers already knew—Five Ten and Stealth Rubber improved performance. Since then, riders with Five Ten shoes have dominated the Downhill World Cup Circuit, become the go-to footwear for bike guides around the globe and become the favorite of urban trick riders like Danny MacAskill. For 2013 Five Ten continues its tradition of innovation with the Freerider Vxi and new Stealth Contact solution for pedal dynamics.
DH champs and flat pedal specialists Sam Hill and Brook Macdonald helped design the Impact VXi for gravity fed, foot out junkies. Our new STEALTH MI6 rubber outsole has 50-percent more shock absorption and damping than any other shoe on the market. Not only is it stickier than its competition but it also dampens impact as you smash through rock gardens. The upper on the new Impact has been slimmed down but provides more protection than the original, while shaving 25-percent off the weight. Plus we’ve added a quick-dry, hydrophobic upper that dries overnight.
