These fit better than any other shoe I have tried (Specialized Pro, Specialized Comp, Giro Terraduro), pedal as good as the others mentioned, and are very comfortable for walking with ample traction. They are also very light, which probably makes a difference with 1000's of crank rotations during a ride. They are the first mountain bike shoe I have had that doesn't slip in the heel. All good.
I like this Matte Black finish of the Protone! It is literally and figuratively so COOL. Because it is Matte Black, you can pair it with any color jersey and you will still look like you have a matching kit. The vents are really well designed that it cools my head during a hot Southern California mountain climb! Also the design is so Aero that it gives you that advantage, now I can also enjoy the minimal gains that this terrific product provides and I love it....I have TWO of these already and planning on getting a 3rd one!!!! That's how much I like the Protone helmet from KASK.
