FiveTen has introduced a whole crop of new shoes at Eurobike. The highlights were the up-dated Freerider models and the Sleuth Casual shoe, as well as the Kestrel, that comes with a turn-lock and various hardness zones.


The FiveTen Kestrel 2015

FiveTen Kestrel 2015 shoe

Kestrel is their new SPD compatible shoe , and has combined two exciting features. The sole is divided into different hardness zones: The area around the cleats consists of Five Tens toughest rubber compound. So is stiff to optimize power transfer to the pedals and provide maximum support to the foot. The heel and the forward portion are manufactured in contrast from a very soft and non-slip mixture to ensure maximum grip on the pedals and sensitivity.

Der Bereich rund um die Cleats ist aus einer harten Gummimischung gefertigt um eine wippfreie Verbindung sicherzustellen.
The area around the cleats is made out of a hard rubber mixture in order to guarantee a stable connection.

Instead of normal shoe laces the Kestrel uses an innovative wheel system. Even when riding a bike one can change the tightness of the shoes. The Kestrel’s heels come with an anti-slip effect and a torsion-minimising shell.

The Kestrel only weighs 403g (size 43).

FiveTen Freerider Contact 2015

The popular Freerider VXi have made some changes and are now called Freerider CONTACT. The top side of the shoe is quite slim and has received a new design and material. The area of the toes has been protected with the help of stable rubber straps, which add towards the feet’s protection.


The Freerider CONTACT weighs 390g in size 43.



FiveTen Sleuth 2014

The FiveTen Sleuth is new too, an all-rounder shoe with a multisport sole. Whether in the skate park, on the bike or just for fun, the Sleuth has the ambition to guarantee best grip and comfort with the help of the Stealth Marathon sole.
