Ride Concepts have been starting to make their mark on the mountain bike scene, developing a complete line of shoes consisting of flat and clipless models in options for men, women, and youth. The Vice, a shoe aimed at the dirt jump, slopestyle, and BMX crowd, is the brand’s latest offering which debuts today.
The shoe is designed to give riders exceptional pedal feel and compliance by utilizing their RC Fuzion outsole. Contrary to other shoes, such as their Powerline flat, the RC Fuzion outsole has a sloped and angled inverse hexagon pattern, with larger hexagons at the toe and heel, allowing the pedal to sink into the outsole to give riders more sensitivity. Additionally, there is a D3O injected insole to help absorb impacts and reduce fatigue.
