Vaude - AM Moab Mid STX MTB
Waterproof flat pedal bike shoe: AM Moab Mid STX
The eco-friendly Sympatex® membrane protects from water and dirt and provides a good microclimate for your feet thanks to its excellent breathability. A high shaft and conventional laces combined with a Velcro fastener provide outstanding support. The perfect fit is rounded off with an anatomical Ortholite® insole, which ensures optimum power transfer thanks to the harder PU foam in the pedal area. Reinforced toe and heel caps provide additional protection from impacts and stones.
The EVA midsole has extra shock absorption at the heel for additional comfort and protection. The newly developed AM Flat sole takes you to a new level for ‘bike and hike’ adventures. The hexagon tread pattern at the midfoot combined with a soft SUPtraction® flat rubber compound ensures perfect grip on the pedal to you can stay concentrated on the trail. In the toe and heel area, the sole has a deeper tread that provides the necessary traction when you need to carry or push your bike. The hexagon tread works like fish scales that wedge into the ground when walking for excellent traction whatever the ground surface.
