  • Shimano Women's XC5W (XC502W) MTB Shoes

    The Shimano Women's XC5W (XC502W) MTB Shoes benefit from technology trickled down from premium XC shoes, giving you superb comfort and pedalling performance for all your off-road cycling adventures. 

    Whether you're taking on the up and down rollercoaster trails of cross country mountain biking or testing your fitness in a lung-bursting cyclocross race, the Women's XC5W (XC502W) MTB Shoes bring you premium-level performance at an accessible price point. For racers and keen off-road riders on a smaller budget, they're a brilliant choice.

    S-Phyre Technology

    The design of the XC5W shoes makes use of Shimano's S-Phyre philosophy and features, as first seen on their premium cross-country race shoes. It starts with the foot-wrapping upper, offering a snug fit that provides a supportive pedalling platform and removes hot spots. Made with a durable synthetic material, this supple upper is incredibly light and highly breathable too, perfect for warmer weather and challenging hill climbs.

    The upper construction is also integrated with the sole unit, as first seen on the S-PHYRE XC902, offering extra support and stability during hard off-road efforts.

    Power to the Pedals

    With their glass-fibre reinforced midsole, the XC5W balance the need for optimal pedalling efficiency with value for money. Rated 6 out of 12 on Shimano's stiffness scale, this sole unit gets your hard-won watts to the pedals but with enough flex to take the buzz out of rough trails. A low stack height gets your foot closer to the pedal axle, improving efficiency and foot support still further.

    Shimano's ULTREAD™ compound also features. This sticky rubber sole, in combination with the grippy tread and lug pattern, provides a firm grip when you're off the bike and running loose and muddy terrain. You can also fit Severe Condition Spikes (not supplied), just right for the muddiest of MTB and cyclocross races.

    BOA® L6 skeleton dial

    Low-profile, light in weight and offering precise adjustment, the BOA® L6 skeleton dial lets you quickly and easily get the fit, feel and security of the shoes just to your liking. It's also easy to make adjustments on the go - tighten them up for a final sprint - loosen them off as your feet swell in the heat.

    Cleat Guidance

    These MTB shoes are compatible with MTB pedal systems, which use cleats with SPD standard (2-bolt standard), e.g.: Shimano SPD, Time ATAC, CrankBrothers, CrankBrothers Race, Look MTB, Xtreme MTB, Wellgo MTB, Ritchey MTB.
