The Carbide is an XC shoe with the comfortable, supportive fit found in our premium shoes. We added a nylon and rubber co-molded outsole for impressive durability, grip and traction in rocks and mud. While we were at it, we redesigned the upper to combine supple synthetic fiber with mesh panels for increased breathability and lighter weight. Three wide straps allow easy fit adjustments, and a supportive EVA footbed enhances comfort. A stout injected nylon sole helps transfer power to the pedals instantly, enhancing your connection to the bike.
