Ride Concepts Shoes

Ride Concepts is a new shoe company based out of Truckee, California with years of experience and real-world testing under their belts. RC teamed up with Rubber Kinetics, who also happens to make tires for Good Years bicycle division, to introduce three new proprietary rubber compounds to better suits specific riding styles.  Various shoe models range from low grip for mellow trails and beginner riders to mid and high grip for all-mountain riding and aggressive downhill riding. Furthermore, RC incorporated D3O protection, similar to what you might find in your knee pads, to the footbed of their shoes. Sturdy toe caps and medial ankle protection is seen across the more aggressive line of shoes, while trail shoes lean towards a lighter weight package. We’re not sure how these shoes will stack up against the competition, but they are packed full of features and offer a skate style shoe for both clipless and flat pedal riders.
