Excellent grip

Equipped with Vibram’s Ecostep rubber outsole technology, the Rumble VR offers an excellent grip. The innovation was introduced in 1994 and is used on light outdoor and casual footwear. It is made from a minimum of 30% recycled rubber compound - a more eco-friendly option that doesn’t sacrifice traction.

Durable and flexible

The shoe’s midsole is crafted from EVA - a material known for its durability and rubber-like flexibility. This feature is mostly responsible for the shoe’s walkable structure. However, in cycling shoes, stiffness of the sole also means excellent power transfer. And for this, an injected inner shank is provided.

Two-bolt cleat system

The Rumble VR cycling shoe employs a two-bolt cleat design. The shoe initially comes with a cleat cover that hides the cleat mounts. Purchasers should remove this to utilize the shoe’s clipless function. The cleat area is also recessed into the sole, which allows the wearer to walk comfortably despite having cleats attached to the shoe.
