Back in Black – The new Adidas The Road cycling shoe

After 15 years of abstinence, Adidas is back in the world of road cycling with The Road cycling shoe. For just € 150 you can get the click pedal shoe in traditional Adidas look from December on. What else is behind the newcomer from Adidas? We share it with you in our News.

Why Adidas is launching a new racing shoe now of all times and not ten years ago, we can’t answer. Maybe it’s because more bikers are getting on their road bikes now than in the years before. What we do know is that with The Road cycling shoe, Adidas wants to appeal not only to elite level riders but also to adventurous and health-oriented riders who are enthusiastic about a sustainable form of exercise. That’s why there are more details hidden in the shoe than you might think at first glance.

The Adidas The Road cycling shoe in detail

At first glance, the look of the new road bike shoe is striking. In addition to the iconic three stripes on the side, the design and lacing are reminiscent of traditional Adidas sports shoes. The upper shoe is woven by Adidas from 100% recycled Primegreen material into a seamless Primeweave fabric. The glass fiber reinforced nylon sole is designed in the style of the Adidas soccer shoe range and is intended to ensure efficient power transmission. The shoe is compatible with click pedal systems with 3-hole standard.

The Road shoe will be released on December 1st for € 150 in a black version with white reflective stripes and details in the heel area. According to Adidas, further colour variations are to follow. Adidas has also announced that it will expand its own collection to include other cycling products. So you can be curious what else the developers from the tranquil town of Herzogenaurach have up their sleeve.

The Road shoe is just the kick-off of Adidas’ announced cycling range and already looks very promising. We are looking forward to trying out the whole Adidas collection on the road bike for you. Whether The Road cycling shoe rides as well as it looks will be determined then.
