Who should buy the Shimano MW701
Shimano’s MW7 is the brand’s premier winter cycling shoe. It was created for riders without an off-season. It is a solid option if you:
- Need a shoe that has a waterproof Gore-Tex liner, along with a layer of thermal insulation, runs throughout the shoe.
- Need a shoe that has two winter-specific components and rubber reinforced areas that provide impact protection.
- Need a shoe that offers extra insulation from the ground up and retention provided by BOA dials and Velcro fastenings.
Dual-density Michelin rubber compound
Crafted from a dual-density Michelin rubber compound, the outsole is created for high-performance in slippery surfaces.
With a stiffness rating of 5 out of 12 in the brand’s scale, the Shimano MW701 provides a balance between rigidity and flex.
Provides natural feel while pedaling
This shoe features Shimano’s TORBAL (Torsional Balance) system. It aims to provide the wearer a natural feel while pedaling.
Shimano MW701 2-bolt SPD cleat type
The Shimano MW701 features a 2-bolt SPD cleat type. With aggressive lugs, the cleat area is recessed and can be comfortably worn with flat pedals as well.
Unlike the usual 11mm cleat range of most cycling shoes, the MW7 employs a total of 22mm of cleat adjustments. This provides the cyclist more range to position their shoe-to-pedal connection.
Insulated and waterproof
Equipped with Gore-Tex Insulated Comfort liner, the foot remains dry and warm no matter how low the temperature drops.
Protection from debris
Incorporating lace-shield and high cuff construction, the shoe effectively keeps unwanted elements at bay.
Employing BOA L6 dials, the shoes can be effortlessly adjusted and offers a precise fit.
The Shimano MW701 provides added safety measurements by incorporating 360-degree reflectivity.
