Who should NOT buy Nike SuperRep Cycle

The level of power transfer that the Nike SuperRep Cycle provides will not satisfy elite cyclists. They can either get the Pearl Izumi X-Road Fuel v5 or Shimano IC500, which are both indoor cycling shoes with a really stiff outsole for a more efficient transfer of power.

Reinforcements are also applied with no seams to offer support sans the rubbing and hot spots, which makes it even cozier to wear.

Keep the feet cool with the SuperRep Cycle

The SuperRep Cycle's breathability astounds a handful of cyclists.

This breathable bike shoe keeps the top of the foot feeling cool via its lightweight mesh upper material. It works together with the vent pockets in the outsole.

The outsole features air ventilation pockets that work in conjunction with the mesh upper to allow excellent airflow.

Two- and three-bolt cleat systems can be accommodated

The Nike SuperRep Cycle employs both two- and three-bolt cleat systems. It is compatible with both Look Delta and SPD pedals.

If you choose to use the three-bolt design, these are the pedals you can try: Shimano Ultegra PD-R8000, Time Xpro 12, and Garmin Vector 3 Power Meter.

If you go for the two-bolt design, the pedals you can try are Shimano XTR M9020, Crank Brothers Mallet E, and Nukeproof Horizon CS CrMo.

Nike SuperRep Cycle: Stiff but not too stiff

An external plate is placed in the cleat area to govern pedaling efficiency. The level of power transfer is enough for indoor cycling and casual rides. However, some elite cyclists find its stiffness insufficient.

You will not slip with this shoe

Rubber pads are strategically placed on the heel and toe areas to provide grip while walking on studio floors.

Feet stay in place even when pedaling hard

Even with its wide toe box, your feet will feel immovable. The foot is kept in place by two hook-and-loop straps. One strap governs the forefoot area while the second one tightens the opening of the shoe. These straps can be easily adjusted even while on the saddle.

Nike SuperRep Cycle closure system

This closure system also allows easy on and off as the entrance can be opened wide, and a heel pull tab is also provided.

Cycle with style

According to numerous consumers, this indoor cycling shoe's style is captivating and appealing.
