Clipless pedals are the way to go for more power, more control, and the perfect spin. As the leader in the flat-pedal bike shoe movement, we’ve been thinking out of the box. High end ankle protection, asymmetrical lace protection, fully stiched one piece padded Raptor tongue. Inside ankle patch for protection from crank.

I have two pairs of these one I use on my Xc bike run them with clips on Time pedals, give great stiff response through the pedal stroke,very comfortable to wear, my longest ride in them has been 52 miles didn't get so much as a blister very good shoes.
My second pair I use without clips and use them on flat pedals on my Downhill bike the stealth rubber is super grippy, so grippy I fact you feel like your clipped in absolutely fantastic shoes recommend them to anyone :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jay62976 Great grip
I got these for a trip to morzine this year, and had read the reviews so got a half size larger. They looked clumsy when I tried them on but they fitted very will so I took them to dalby forest and did the red route about 21 miles long. I could not fault them in anyway my feet stuck to the pedals they didn't pinch or give me any sores/ blisters etc. I'm no pro rider but I'm very happy with these shoes the only down side for me is they do look a bit "clumsy" but so do most flat shoes in this category.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KrisTianD Worst product and worst commercial service ever !!
I buy a pair of Raven in the beginning of the past season. I practice enduro, freeride and DH between 2 or 3 time a week.
At the end of the season, my 5Ten Raven shoes were definitly destroyed. oth cleats breaks from the soles, black coat totally disaper, ...
The worst part of it was when I contact 5Ten to claim about poor quality product, and they answer me that it was because I practice too much MTB... mmm intersting answer... I was thinking buying MTB shoes?!
So buy Raven 5Ten shoes if you attempte to be a ballerina...
5Ten never again !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MOKO Great sticky shoes for flat or clip just oder a half size up
Great pair of flat pedal shoes very sticky, running them with out clips and work a treat.
Thanks for all the reviews before this one which stated they where a bit tight and hurt your feet. Take there advice and order a half a size up and the very comfy after the first ride and have great protection

Rated 4 out of 5 by timhb Needs breaking in but great shoes if you can be bothered to invest a few hours of pain!
First thing you need to know is that these are not a generously sized as other five tens. My Spitfires are a capacious 44 so thought I'd drop down a size in the Ravens. Nope, had to send them back for some 44s which are still smaller inside than my Spitfires.
Second thing is that they are really inflexible and uncomfortable out of the box. All other Five Tens I've used have been super comfy straight out of the box. These pinch a little in the toe box and don't have that immediate feeling of comfort. Strangely just sitting about in them is worse than pedalling or walking leading to numb feet.
I've now got five rides complete in the Ravens and they are showing their true colours. Grip and a decent platform for pedalling were always evident but they were really uncomfortable after half an hour or so. It's taken six hours in the saddle to break them in and now I'm happy with them for longer rides. They feel comfy and are my go to shoes for gravity and trail based riding. They give plenty of grip in those moments when you just can't get straight back in the clip, keep out most of the mud rain and muck, and are good to push back up in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by timmybee these are not impacts.....
got these to replace a cheap pair of shimano MT43 shoes that are worn out.
I have impacts which i love, so i ordered the same size. The fit is ok, but these shoes pinch the little toe quite badly. have sore feet in about 2 mins. thought they might need a 'break in' period so i kept wearing them for XC/All mountain riding. now i am back to wearing my worn out shimano shoes because they are far more comfortable and weigh half as much. Very disappointed with these as the Impacts are fantastic (more comfortable than most causal shoes)
