For cross racing and off-road exploring
Cyclocross racers demand a lot from their footwear – traction for scrambling up steep slopes, stiffness for short and sharp accelerations, and the durability to withstand post-race hose downs. The Rapha Cross Shoe, produced in collaboration with Giro of California, has been constructed with these challenges in mind.
The sole is Giro’s race-worthy carbon EC90, complemented by dual-compound treads for grip when running with the bike – there are two holes for screw-in studs for the muddiest terrains. The upper consists of a robust synthetic leather, capped with an abrasion-resistant rubber at the front and back, all secured by two hook-and-loop fasteners and the same machined aluminium buckle found on Rapha GT Shoes.
The insole makes use of Giro’s SuperNatural™ fit system, and is supplied with a number of cork insteps to fine-tune the footbed. Rapha Cross Shoes are compatible with any two-bolt cleat system.
NB: Please only try the shoes on a carpeted surface without cleats, as we are unable to accept returns with scratched or scuffed soles, thank you.
