FIVE TEN – FREERIDER PRO SHOES – REVIEW

Here's a flat pedal shoe by Five Ten that we'd recommend

Flat pedal shoes (and flat pedals themselves) are becoming more of a rarity on BMX race gates around the globe, but many coaches still include and encourage ‘Skills Sessions’ to their athletes to be done on flat pedals. Many of the hardcore ‘purest’ still love to race in flats and if you’re looking for a flat pedal shoe with a slightly stiffer sole to give you that added advantage we suggest seriously looking at the Five Ten’s.

Five Ten are becoming synonymous with the ‘flat pedal crew’ offering not only a super stiff sole, but also a number of great designs and some would say the grippiest sole you will find, for that extra grip.

We were sent the Freerider Pro, which had a simple, but clean design, they fitted great and you could instantly feel the stiffer sole on your pedal as soon as you jumped on your bike. By offering a stiffer sole, more of your power will be transferred down to the ground, and every clipster’ you beat is worth double points.
