Five Ten has drastically influenced biking footwear for the past decade. The innovation spirit and the close cooperation with our athletes are driving us to setting up new standards and pushing creative ideas to the market.
And Five Ten walks the talk! With the Freerider VXi (VX = Five Ten, i = innovation) Five Ten presents a completely new developed shoe for the bike season 2013. Welcome a technology that’s sure to change the riding in the World Cup circuit, in bike parks & on trails. Treadless under the ball of the foot for immediate and superior contact, Stealth® Contact™ offers an easier and more precise way to adjust the foot on the run without tread obstruction. Just relieve the foot and re-adjust: float is the new rule that will change bikers` life.
Besides the dreams of floating, which are the center of the new product, we choose a holistic approach to the new VXi: Fit is key for performance. And the Fit of the Freerider VXi is just amazing. The slim silhouette of the VXi makes floating and movement on the pedal possible. The same time we reduce direct contact to the crank. And in combination with durable instep materials we create enhanced durability to the entire product. Weight – we just got rid of it. Ventilation – take a deep breath. Some of our athletes are flying around the mountains and woods for quite some time and are impressed! So be careful out there!
Five Ten Freerider VXi Shoes Feature:
Stealth Rubber Info: What makes Stealth rubber so unique and the friction extremely exceptional? It’s the perfect combination of plasticity and elasticity! This combination allows the Stealth outsole to absorb the pins of a pedal and all other microscopic structures and creates thereby an optimum friction. Due to the elasticity the rubber forms back and ensures a long-lasting absorption of microscopic bumps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DrZucchino They are ok, with a few flaws
These shoes are comfortable to wear both on and off the bike, with a classic skate shoe style. The upper is sturdy with strong reinforcements where they are needed on the toes and heel. The tongue is not very heavily padded and, in my opinion slightly too short. I prefer to tuck my laces in when I ride and with these shoes is not easy or comfortable. Top/side panels bunch and warp. Ventilation is good, heat and sweat retention is not a problem. The soles of the shoe are very sticky rubber. However, the tread is flat and smooth over the part of the sole that is in contact with the pedals and patterned in the toes which rarely contact the pedal. As such, feet can slip laterally on the pedal if the screws aren't biting in to the rubber. Good shoes but not great. I also wear SPD and used to wear Globe skate shoes prior to these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yuretz81 Кросовки безкомпромисно классные
Итак, заказал на свой страх и риск в плане размера. Ни разу не носил перед этим 5.10. В миру ношу 45 размер обуви. Стопа по стельке 295 мм. Начитавшись заказал 45 европа. Доставка как всегда порадовала скоростью и....... Я стал обладателем сего чуда. Размер подошел идиально. Оказывается на языке так и написано было 295 мм), 45 европа. Липнут к педалям Нюкпруф Электрон( пластиковые которые) просто на ура. Даже появился обратный эффект, когда не так ногу поставил на педаль, раньше быстренько мог поправить, а теперь труднее)))). В общем это мои проблемы). Выглядят просто шикарно в цвете 5.10 ред. Проверено на мини дх трассах , прочные, боковая поддержка вокруг косточки отличная. Кросы не дрыщавые. Единственным минусом назвал бы( если это минус) то , что изза этого лысого места на подошве гладкого, при подьеме на старт( вверх по склону) нога часто скользит сильно и сцепление не ахти. Все мы частенько с дх агрегатом пилим на старт вверх по крутому, так вот готовтесь скользить. Сейчас осень, листья, сцепухи маловато очень))). Но это такое.... Под джинсы просто супер также их одеть. Однозначно рекомендую. Буду брать еще одни другого цвета. Надеюсь помогу своим отзывом русскоязычному потребителю с размером.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jalde68 Gripping time! Sometimes slippery.
The grip is unbelievable while riding. Well I have no comparison except my old sneakers. :) But when weather conditions get wet, watch out while placing your foot down on a slippery ground going up a hill for instance: pattern in the sole gives very little grip on the ground... Found the right size at once, thanks to previous reviews!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stevie24 Very nice shoes for flat pedals
Those shoes are very grippy. They really stick to your pedals. As there is no pattern where the shoe contact with the pedal, it's easy to replace your foot. Nice feature.
The quality is good and they are comfortable.

Excellent shoe. Very comfortable and grippy when riding. The perfect shoe if you arent 100% confident with SPD's but still want a shoe which will give excellent grip on the pedals.
Sizing is similar to any skate shoe so no need to go up or down a size when ordering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous perfect for downhill
Got these shoes two weeks ago and have been using them everyday biking. The shoes are comfortable and really sticks too your pedals! Almost couldn't belive how well they stuck to my pedals on my downhill bike when i went for a ride in a slope with lots of rots, rocks and drops. When using my old shoes i constantly had to adjust mye foots as they where move quite a bit around on my pedals. The sizing on these shoes are quite acurate. I meassured my fot with a ruler and found a chart showing what it was in euro size and it's spot on!

I noticed that the size 45 shoes are designated 29.5 cm on the inside of the tongue (UK 10.5, USA 11.5). Can anyone please tell me the measurement for size 44 and 44.5 in cm, as it is not listed in the size chart. Thanks!
