In a world where races are won by fractions of seconds there's no reason you shouldn't reach for every possible advantage. You've already kitted yourself out with aerodynamic and sleek gear, but don't forget to deck out your feet with the featherweight option that fights just as hard as the big guns like the Scott MTB RC SL Shoe. These ultra-lightweight shoes combine minimalist carbon fiber uppers with a light and ultra stiff carbon fiber sole for minimal weight with maximum support on race day. The MTB RC SL Shoes feature Carbitex uppers, with the highest tensile strength possible to ensure exceptional durability as it wraps around your foot for massive support at minimal weight. The uppers secure in place with Scott's Wrap Fit technology that adds a structural layer of synthetic leather inside to wrap and conform to your foot like a second skin, ensuring minimal wiggle space and complete support. This foot-hugging technology cinches down around your foot with two IP-1 Boas that offer minuscule adjustments to dial in the perfect secure fit while you ride. Ultimately, comfort is important, but when race day comes what we're craving is pure, unadulterated power transfer, and the MTB RC SL Shoes capture that with an intensely stiff HMX carbon outsole, coming in at at a whopping 10 out of 10 on Scott's stiffness index, ensuring all of the power you're putting down goes into the pedals to keep you going, instead of flexing underfoot. Underneath the carbon outsole is a Corecell foam core that shaves more weight, without reducing the stiffness, making the shoe a bit more minimalist, while EVA Sticki rubber coats the outside to make sure you've got the tacky tread you want if you need to hop off the bike to jump hurdles or fallen logs.
