Unlike road bike apparel, which tends to transition from road to trail without a hitch, your road-going shoes won’t make it to the mud without causing a few issues, which is why footwear designed for the path less pedaled exists. The best models, like the DMT GK1 Shoes, offer recessed cleats, more durable uppers and smart soles that blend power efficiency with walking ease. All so that when a river crossing or unforeseen fence has you shouldering the bike, you won’t lose your footing along the way.
The DMT GK1 Shoes feature a light, breathable and incredibly comfortable full knit construction, alongside integrated laces (there’s no tongue here) and reinforced sections that help to brush off the rough and tumble of the trail. Underfoot, Michelin® rubber keeps things steady with an engineered tread design that affords excellent traction and grip out of the saddle. A properly recessed SPD-ready cleat area that saves the click-clacks for the bike, not the hike, completes the shoes.

Shipping & Returns
We ship the same day for everything other than entire bikes if you order before 11 am P.S.T. But if it's the weekend, we'll be out riding, and your order will leave Monday. Shipping costs are detailed on checkout, but we offer a few different services depending on your preference for speed. So if you need those new shoes for next week's ride or tomorrow's - we got you. And returns are easy, too. Send us a mail if something doesn't work out, and as long as it's unused and in its original packaging (naturally for apparel and footwear, you can try things on at home), we'll happily take it back within 30 days of your order.
If you have any questions or just want to say hi and talk about bikes, drop us a line.
