Shimano S-PHYRE RC9 Shoes | 19-20
The first-generation S-PHYRE RC9 shoe established a new benchmark for cycling shoe performance, weight, efficiency, stiffness, and comfort. Yet S-PHYRE is about always seeking improvement — always innovating to be better. The second-generation S-PHYRE RC9 is even lighter with enhanced hydrophobic materials to limit moisture retention, and features an improved heel cup and a revised pattern for improved fit and better transfer of power to the pedal. With S-PHYRE innovation truly has no finish line.
DUAL MICRO-ADJUST LACING
Dual independent Boa® IP1 dials with powerzone wire guide lacing allow quick and precise micro-adjustment while maintaining stability.
FULL-FEATURE SEAMLESS UPPER
Supple, stretch-resistant and highly breathable, one-piece Teijin Avail microfiber synthetic leather limits moisture and sweat retention, features increased MicroVent holes for heat dispersion, and fits like a glove.
Asymmetric eyestay pattern prevents twisting of foot under high-power pedaling.
The elimination of the traditional lasting board reduces weight and lowers the stack height between the foot and pedal to better support the foot and maximizes power transfer and efficiency.
LOW STACK HEIGHT
Low stack height carbon midsole helps stabilize foot during the downward pedaling stroke, maximizing power transfer.
Extra 11 mm of cleat adjustment range.
EXTERNAL HEEL CUP
Revised external curved heel cup construction minimizes foot twist and roll, stabilizes the heel, and holds the foot firmly in place.
Silvadur’s patented silver ion intelligent technology offers longlasting freshness. No unwanted odors or discoloration occur that might shorten a product’s lifespan.
