Who should buy Five Ten Impact Pro

If you are a fan of the original Impact shoe or just seeking for your next all-mountain/downhill pair, then it is a solid option if you:

  • Need a shoe that features a super sticky outsole and excellent toe protection to keep the foot on the pedal and safeguarded against impacts.
  • Prefer sleeker, lighter, and more streamlined as it underwent refinements in the sole for improved grip and durability.

Excellent grip

The outsole is crafted with the brand’s Stealth rubber technology. Combined with a unique multi-dotty tread design, the Stealth S1 innovation is commended for its ability to stick to the pedals. 

Five Ten Impact Pro Outsole

The Steal S1 outsole technology has a durometer measurement of 64a. This rubber type is ideal for cycling as it provides essential stiffness for efficient power transfer.

Flat cleat system

The Five Ten Impact Pro features a flat cleat system. Flat cycling shoes eliminate the fear of hitting the ground due to not removing shoes from the clips on time.

They allow the rider the freedom to plant their feet whenever needed. Also, since the fear is out of the equation, cyclists can focus more on the technical side of completing complicated trails.

Fast drying and water-resistant upper

The shoe’s upper material is made from a synthetic textile. This material is abrasion- and water-resistant, which offers durability and protection from the elements. When the shoe gets soaked due to unforeseen events, the material also dries quickly.

Exceptional toe protection

Aside from the double protection given by the combination of stitched and reinforced toe caps, the shoe also features an added impact-resistant foam called Poron.

According to studies, Poron technology absorbs up to 90% of the energy during high-speed impacts. It is soft when at rest and instantly “freezes” upon impact. Once force is applied, the foam forms a protective shell that protects the foot from impact.

Secure fit

With its traditional lace-up closure combined with flat rubber-crafted eyelets, this model keeps the foot secure and in place.
