SCOTT's carbon expertise has long trickled down from bike manufacturing to cycling shoes. This knowledge is now reflected even more in the 2020 SCOTT cycling shoe collection which consists of shoes that have World Championships and Pro Tour stage wins in the books.
The RC EVO - A Shoe Designed for Maximum Effectiveness
We've been looking intensively into optimal stiffness to weight ratios for carbon cycling shoes. SCOTT footwear engineers believe that a shoe's stiffness can only be effective when the upper material offers a snug and seamless construction. With the all-new SCOTT RC EVO road racing shoe, SCOTT is releasing a race-proven shoe whose upper material enforces the effectiveness of the stiff HMX outsole. Laminated and seamless, the minimal yet durable and stiff upper offers a glove-like feel and transfers power through the outsole into the pedals. The ROAD RC EVO is a shoe primed to attack, especially for climbing specialists and for those where power transfer is everything. The ROAD RC EVO and the XC dedicated MTB RC EVO are both available in sizes EU38-48 and retail for € 299.95.
SCOTT's Racing Shoe Highlights for 2020
Road cycling and cross-country MTB racing have both diverged into various disciplines over the past few years. Accordingly, requirements for specific footwear have grown. For 2020, SCOTT is expanding the racing footwear collection for both road riding and XC to meet the demands of any type of rider and any discipline. Our shoes offer extremely specific features, purely designed for single purposes such as aerodynamic shoes for triathlon, lightweight shoes for climbing or incredibly stiff shoes built for fast stages. Our main highlights alongside the RC EVO line are the Tri Carbon and the all-new Vertec Lady.
Designed for Triathletes like Sebastian Kienle, the SCOTT Road Tri Carbon is a pure race machine. By bringing the BOA® IP-1 Fit System to the shoe's heel, we've been able to design a much sleeker, clean shoe shape. This design saves important watts without losing any stiffness or comfort. The HMF outsole with a stiffness index of 9 ensures maximum energy transfer with zero loss of power.
The shoe for Nino Schurter fans! Our ultra minimalist SCOTT MTB RC SL Carbitex shoe is built on an HMX carbon sole with a Corecell foam core for even more weight savings and ultimate power transfer. A dual Boa® IP-1 Fit System secure the Carbitex carbon fiber uppers for a highly conforming fit. A super outsole with minimal Sticki rubber tread completes this world-class race shoe.
For aspiring XC racers and performance oriented women, we've built the SCOTT Vertec Boa® Lady shoe. While highly efficient with serious pedaling response for any kind of distance, the Vertec Boa® doesn't forsake comfort with its microfiber upper and its Boa® IP-1 Fit System for micro adjustment. In combination with an ErgoLogic adjustable insole and an increased range of cleat adjustment, the shoe can be personalized to any rider's foot.
