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.
