Top Ten Trainers: Five Ten Impact Karver

Five Ten shoes have recently introduced a women’s version of their ever popular MTB shoes. Available at CRC from ultra-tiny size 3 (35.5) up to size 7.5 (41.5), these shoes are a must for any XC or DH rider who uses flat pedals. The soles are made from super grippy Stealth rubber which make sure your feet stay on the pedals when you are going foot-out-flat-out.

Looking at their design, I was a bit disappointed that the usual purple/pinky colour scheme was used for a ladies MTB shoe, but considering that the shoes will most likely get so mucky that it wont be seen its not much of an issue. Two girls from my club have these, and have only good things to say about them, especially in that they protect your ankle from pedal-bashing.

Good call on Five Ten for introducing these (especially in the small sizes for girls like me!). These are a MUST for any flat pedal MTBer. Available from CRC: www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=33183
