Shimano SH-RT82 Review
I did say they were a trusted brand. With the Shimano R065 being an ideal beginner shoe for the road the Shimano SH-RT82 takes your cycling shoe up another level. Shimano have added some extra pieces from the R065 road shoe. Find out what they have added with our Shimano SH-RT82 Review.
Who is this road cycling shoe for
Again if your on a budget then you should consider this shoe as not a cheap road cycling shoe but a budget cycling shoe ideal for commuting, save your best shoes for the weekend.
This is a cycling shoe you say, what other features could they add?
To begin with the Shimano SHRT82 has 2 velcro fastening straps and now a buckle to fasten your shoe. Whereas it used to just be a velcro fastening you now benefit from added security with a buckle fastening.
Adding to this there is an additional recessed cleat design which aides walking, a glass fibre sole insert that provides stiffness and support when pedalling and an EVA insole provides added support and comfort.
I like the Shimano SHRT82 because its a great comfortable shoe just feels great when your riding and the buckle makes it feel that extra secure and snug. This is again a great durable shoe
More than just an entry level shoe, this is a great performance road riding shoe but also ideal for commuting and can be worn on some mountain bike pedals.
Again taking safety into mind Shimano has included the reflective strips for your added safety. Because of the recessed cleat design and the glass fibre insole provides a stiffness and support for riding and helping your performance but also when you get off the bike it aids walking.
Looking at size Shimano have given a little extra help and advice with this. They advise customers to take 1 or 2 sizes (EU) bigger than your normal size. Interesting but helpful.
An overall look at the Shimano RT82 SPD shoe you will get great performance on the road touring and commuting and can even use the shoe for MTB style pedals.
