Be more visible when riding at night

The Reflective Climber's Shoes are made with low weight and ventilation as priorities, at the same time as providing high levels of visibility through fully reflective uppers.

The uppers are constructed with a reflective mesh-backed synthetic leather, chosen for its low weight and exceptional breathability. Retaining the tensile strength required to support a foot during intense efforts, the mesh lining also allows sweat to evaporate from inside of the shoe. The leather’s perforations enable fresh air to circulate, leaving the foot feeling cool. Reflective low-profile hook and loop fasteners are chosen for their simplicity and minimal bulk. The three straps allow the rider to easily adjust tension across the foot.

The EC90 SLXII sole is an evolution of that found on the Rapha GT Shoes. It keeps weight and stack height to a minimum, incorporates a replaceable heel protector, and is shaped to complement Giro’s SuperNatural Fit™ footbeds that allow riders to choose their preferred level of arch support. In contrast pink, the sole completes the RCC livery.

Please note: If you already own a pair of Climber’s Shoes, the reflective material used in the Reflective Climber’s Shoes is slightly stiffer, and will require a longer bedding-in period.

Worn by pros

Developed with experts in biomechanics and footwear design, the Rapha Climber's Shoes have been rigorously tested by the best riders in the world.

Team Sky riders have worn the Climber’s Shoes in all weather conditions, clocking up countless kilometres in the process. The result is a shoe that has become a staple item of Team Sky kit, providing exceptional performance and optimum power transfer in challenging mountainous terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my 3rd pair Marvelous fit for slim feet. I'm usually a size 37,5 but the 39 fits well when your feet swell up a little. Not too big at all. The reflection is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best looking shoes I’ve had! I use to get hot foot with other brands of shoes but these are so comfy, especially like the fact you can alter the arch support to fit your own needs. Perfect finishing touch to the RRC kit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Stiff, light, responsive and best of all- very good looking! The shoe is extremely breathable and the reflectivity is a priceless safety feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RCC Shoes Excellent visibility Great fit - size chart recommended 46 but I went with 45.5 Well built shoe, looking forward to getting these on in the summer months.... weather too dirty at the moment so I’m hammering around on the sworks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy. O pressure bites I have wide feet and struggled with the narrow Giro SLX pinching my 5th toe. These are the same size but seem to have a more ergonomic upper. Time will tell about durability but these are a significant upgrade for an important contact point

Hey I wear Sidi omegas, and used to wear fizik r3s. Both in a 9.5 size, my question is the sidis are a little bit more comfortable then the fiziks were I think because my foot is borderline wide.  Would these shoes work for me or are they to narrow?

Asked by: Vinnie
These Shoes are more similar to the sizing of Sidi than FiZik Shoes. They do not run as a narrow shoe

After many miles of use I need another pair of these (just ordered). Really great shoes, but do you have any tips on protecting the tip of the toes from scuffing? First pair scuffed up almost instantly, quicker than any other shoes I've had.

Asked by: Pete145
To avoid scuffing the toes there are two schools of thought. EIther try to use the heel of your foot predominantly when walking off the bike, or purchase toe covers

My shoes sidi wire size 47 n fizik R1 size 46. What true size rapha climber' shoes?

Asked by: Doel_84
A 47 would be the best choice based on these two other brands. The Sidi Wire and Climbers shoes share a very similar profile

Hi, I wear ladies size 39 specialised S Works shoes and the size chart says for Rapha 40.5 would that be correct? 

Asked by: LouW
Our size chart is accurate so the 40.5 should be the appropriate fit. If the size does not meet with your requirements then you will be able to return these to us under our 90 day returns policy.

I am confused,my sidi wire carbon Venice size. 41 (not really very tight fit) my specialized s works 6 size 41 ( a little more looser than my sidi..both comfortable though I know it suppose to be very question is 41.5 (rapha) is tat perfect?

Asked by: Diamond
A Climber's Shoe in 41 would be equivalent to the Sidi 41, so if you required a tighter fit, you would require a 40.5 rather than the 41.5

Hi, I am wearing Specialized Sworks shoe size 43. What size should I wear for this? Same size as well?

Asked by: Nic Tlc
A size 44 would be the appropriate size based on this information. We have a sizing chart on the product page that highlights the sizes of most major brands against the Climbers Shoes to ensure you can select the correct pair

How does the fit compare to Bont's? They look narrow.

Asked by: Joe Saroni
The Climber's Shoes are a slim fit. Each of our shoes has a size comparison guide for each manufacturer to give a more comprehensive idea of which shoe to select.
