The 2019 O’Neal Loam WP SPD mountain bike shoes are so much more than just a winter waterproof product. With the Loam we have created one of the most versatile MTB shoes on the market.
It goes without saying that the Loam is 100% waterproof and breathable, perfect for even the worst winter riding conditions. Protection from the elements is increased further with the gusseted tongue, full Velcro lace cover and neoprene ankle gaiter to prevent any water or dirt ingress.
GREAT 3-4 SEASON SHOE
We have added a layer of thermal insulation and this has been rigorously tested by riders in the winer in Queenstown, NZ, down to around 0C. The toe box of the Loam is also wider than usual, allowing the toes to move and encourage blood circulation but the ankle and heel are still a snug fit to ensure a great fit and maximum power transfer to the pedals. This approach means the Loam performs down to 0C without making the level of insulation too much. The shoe can also therefore be used comfortably up into 20C+ without over-heating.
This 3-4 season use plus the reinforced toe and heel areas mean the Loam is the go-to choice for our DH and Enduro racers. The steel shank allows super efficient power transfer.
GRIP OFF THE BIKE
The all-new Adventure outsole gives great traction on off the bike in muddy conditions.
