Adding to their already extensive line of Swiss-designed cycling shoes, the new Suplest S8+ is the creme of their crop. Available in road and mountain bike versions, it comes in very light without sparing any features.
The upper is a seamless microfiber piece that’s pulled together with Atop ratchet dials over their breathable Air Vent tongue. The forefoot has two mesh vents heat welded into place, and the sole gets two vents to move air across the bottom of the foot. Inside, the heel gets an antislip material to prevent your foot from pulling out, and a lightweight, premolded EVA insole cushions your foot against the stiff carbon sole. Rubber bumpers on the heel and toe provide a bit of traction on the road version.

The X.1 Trail is an all new model for them, blending their more comfortable Trail shoe uppers with a nylon shank in the sole for better pedaling performance. It’s aimed at the all-mountain crowd.
