Rated 5 out of 5 by Chance AWESOME!
These shoes offer sooo much grip. the pins of the pedal seem to sink into the flat part of the sole and lock. i wouldn't say it was easy to push and pull to re - position your feet but that may be because they are new. i used to ride the impacts but find that the freeriders make it easier to find a comfortable position for your feet. as opposed to the impacts, the freeriders are light and narrow reducing the liklihood of crank rub. the only bad thing about these freeriders are that they are hard to walk with on slippery surfaces (i.e mud).

Firstly i wear 8.5 to 9 in almost all my trainers. I bought 43 euro and these fit perfectly well. I have the Elements versions of these also and i bought these as the Elements are a little toasty in warmer weather.
These are not dissimilar in design and materials, with only the toe area having any real difference with a fabric area instead of the waterproofed material on the Elements, However it does make a difference, these are cooler than the Elements.
I wear these all day, find them suitable for longish mtb rides, 4- 6 hours or so.
That said if you're doing long technical rides they have a flexible sole which makes them exceptionally grippy on the downhills and on the technical uphills, but they can tire your feet out on particular longer xc rides, which admittedly is not their primary design brief.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Flatty Solid connection to pedals
Comfortable shoes that give a solid connection to the pedals. The stealth soles live up to their awesome reputation and the grip and connection has to be experienced to be believed. Sizes are true to sizing so ordering online is not a risk. Great MTB shoes, do yourself a favour!
