Designed specifically as an all conditions trail/Enduro shoe the M163 delivers excellent traction off the bike yet has a sole stiff enough to keep power transfer for a trail-specific shoe. The synthetic leather design is lighter and stronger than natural leathers which puts the M163 straight to the top of the market.
The TORBAL midsole allows you to be faster with more control. If the sole of a cycling shoe is totally rigid, the shoe won’t accommodate heel flex when the bike is slanted in relation to the rider. The TORBAL solution is to provide some sideways flex in the back section of the sole, while maintaining stiffness in the front. This improves balance and bike control by letting the heel section accommodate some lateral movement, while optimizing pedalling efficiency at the sole-and-cleat interface.
The M163 Mountain Bike shoe is perfect for any rider on the hunt for the prefect balance between comfort and performance and is ready to shred up any track you can find.

The Hellcat Pro comes equipped with a DWR synthetic upper to keep your feet dry in the worst conditions by beading up and repelling water. The 3/4 dual-density, vibration-dampening TPU shank still allows for some flex when walking, but maintains rigidity when pedalling. The Stealth® C4™ rubber absorbs shock and minimises vibration, while the classic Dotty™ tread gives great traction both on and off the bike, even in wet conditions.
