ION Shoes Raid Select
We assume you know the secret of a good drink? Right, we are talking about the correct mixture of ingredients. With ION’s brand new and top-notch Raid Select flat pedal shoe it is pretty much the same story: To get the best possible performance in terms of grip, power transmission, durability, usability & style we rely on a combination of various parameters. And when looking at the sole you will see a new concept now mixing a rather soft EVA midsole with a soft yet durable rubber blend on the outsole. We called it Pin Tonic…
But then we didn’t stop mixing: Next thing we added was the Ortholite Eco Plush Sole made from recycled material for superior comfort on the inside. It allows for fantastic foot support, direct feel of the pedals and it adds some comfort to the inside of this sporty, high-performance flat pedal bike shoe. Best thing actually is the material of the upper: Raid Select comes in cowhide leather to underline its durability, improve the wearing comfort and just be the most stylish bike shoe we have ever produced.
On the functional side of things, we mixed in an asymmetrical shaft including the Ankle_Pad to add some protection on the crank side. The sole design still features dedicated pedal and walking zones. They extend from the ball of the foot to the very end of the mid-foot area. Toe and heel areas are shaped with particular climb zones to ensure maximum traction off the pedal. The second main focus during development has been placed on the right mixture of stiffness in the longitudinal axis and flexibility across the lateral axis: a flat-pedal shoe needs to provide power transmission without any compromises in the longitudinal axis when pedalling. On the lateral axis you need a certain flex to prevent the foot from tilting on the pedal but still allow for effective steering impulses. And all this while maintaining comfortable foot roll behaviour. In the toe area a pre-shaped firm toe box protects the foot when it hits rocks or roots.
Pin Tonic Sole Concept: new rubber compound & softer EVA midsole: Combines super-sticky, yet durable rubber with a softer midsole thus allowing maximum grip and a long-lasting character
ToeTal_Protection & Pre-Shaped Heel: Reinforced toe cap to absorb and deviate the forces when hitting a rock or a root. Pre-shaped heel cup for great comfort and precise fit to guarantee superior heel hold.
Ortholite Eco Plush Insole: Offers a unique plush “ride” that delivers extreme cushioning in our bike shoes.
Upper: 100% Leather
