Shimano AM51 All Mountain SPD Shoes
Hard-core off road all-mountain cycling shoe with a high ankle cut ideally suited to rugged terrain.
The Shimano AM-51 is the latest in a line of mountain biking shoes with the "AM" label, denoting the shoes' intended use for "all-mountain" riders, providing a balance of sole stiffness, additional protection and all-day comfort. The Am51 was preceded by the AM50 and Am30 shoes, on which it improves by using a new design and an improved sole. It's a hard-core off road all-mountain shoe with a high ankle cut ideally suited to rugged terrain, offering reinforced high-wear areas, three wide Velcro straps, reflective detail on the rear and breathable mesh panels.
The Am51's sole is stiff enough for good pedalling efficiency while not being so stiff that it makes walking difficult. You will appreciate this balance in the hike-a-bike situations or even walking around at the trail head before/after rides.
They also sport an aggressive mud-shedding rubber tread pattern for that extra traction. These bike shoes are carefully designed with reinforced uppers which feature large breathable mesh panels and synthetic leather uppers, the glass fibre reinforced plate in the outsole of these mens shoes transfers your energy straight to the pedal so you don't waste any!
The AM51 is a solid all-mountain shoe from Shimano that provides extra protection and comfort for long rides on rugged terrain. It's also very comfortable...
