THE O’NEAL MTB SHOE RANGE
The MTB shoe range from O’NEAL has been completely redesigned from the ground up, literally, and extensively tested by our team riders Nina Hoffmann in the UCI Downhill World Cup and Matt MacDuff at the DARKFEST series. The O’NEAL MTB shoes are equipped with numerous features and offer you ultimate grip, comfort and security on your ride.
// THE FLAT PEDAL RANGE //
The SENDER PRO Shoe brings our micro-adjust ratchet lacing system to a flat shoe for the first time. We’ve often heard riders ask why this lace closure system is often only available on SPD shoes from O’NEAL and most other brands yet we see at least as many if not more riders wearing flat shoes compared to SPD these days. The Sender Pro offers all-over protection and the lacing gives the perfect tailored fit and quick-release – the perfect all-round race and riding shoe for the serious rider who demands the best."
2 years in development, the new SENDER FLAT MTB shoe is the first model to use our new Honey Rubber Supergrip outsole. Using a tackier rubber than the traditional Honey Rubber outsole and a unique tread pattern, the Sender gives extra grip and confidence in even the rockiest of sections but still gives enough rotation to allow the foot to be repositioned without taking it completely off the pedal. The perfect balance between grip and repositioning.
Keep it Pinned! Our Pinned and Pinned Pro shoes share the same grippy Honey Rubber® outsole and both have tough yet comfortable uppers with reinforced toe boxes to protect against rocks and crashes.
The regular PINNED FLAT is a standard low-cut design:
With the PUMPS FLAT Shoe we bring a shoe that is as technically competent as any other flat shoe in the range but with more casual styling can be worn all day with jeans making a true one-stop solution for not only your riding shoe needs but possibly all your shoe needs!
Joining our Loam SPD waterproof shoe in the Adventure Series are the TRAVERSE FLAT and TRAVERSE SPD. The Traverse range is equally at home riding or hiking. So whether you are planning to spend full days in the saddle, traversing the mountains and looking for your next adventure or just want a dependable shoe that offers function in a variety of conditions, the Traverse is for you.
Using the same Adventure outsole as the LOAM SPD, this give great traction when hiking with the bike. The less aggressive tread pattern around the pedal contact area means that the pedal grip is not compromised despite the Traverse’s ability off the bike. The front and rear of the shoe are reinforced to provide protection against rock and trail debris and small mesh areas give some ventilation and cooling. The all-new quick-lace system makes tightening and loosening the shoes super fast as well as giving a great snug fit which is improved further by the additional of a Velcro strap.
// THE SPD RANGE //
The SPD range also use the Honey Rubber® outsole but are of course cut to allow SPD cleats. All 5 are available in stealth all black and an additional colour which come with both black and coloured laces.
Using the same Adventure outsole as the LOAM SPD, this give great traction when hiking with the bike. The less aggressive tread pattern around the pedal contact area means that the pedal grip is not compromised despite the Traverse’s ability off the bike. The sole has an internal shank to provide addition stiffness for this SPD version of the TRAVERSE. The front and rear of the shoe are reinforced to provide protection against rock and trail debris and small mesh areas give some ventilation and cooling. The all-new quick-lace system makes tightening and loosening the shoes super fast as well as giving a great snug fit which is improved further by the additional of a Velcro strap.
The PINNED SPD takes our Pinned flat pedal shoe concept and adapts it for SPD. A slightly stiffer sole gives great pedalling efficiency and the skate-style design makes the Pinned SPD look great on or off the bike:
The FLOW SPD offers increased padding and comfort around the ankle, a Velcro strap as well as laces for a more secure fit, a more breathable upper for more intense pedalling and a handy finger loop at the back for ease of putting the shoe on:
The top of the range SESSION SPD has the same Velcro strap as the Flow but laces are replaced with a micro-adjust dial and cable closure system for the best possible fit. An integrated neoprene ankle gaiter keeps soil and stones out. The Session is our high-performance option, ideally suited for DH and Enduro riding and racing:
The LOAM WP SPD incorporates incorporates our new adventure sole unit giving excellent traction when hiking off the bike but still designed for easy SPD entry and exit and traction even on flat and platform SPD pedals if needed. With a fully waterproof breathable membrane and thermal insulation the Loam gives the ultimate protection against the elements. Gusseted tongue, mud flap and ankle gaiter give even more protection when needed. Tested extensively down to 0°C this is a true Winter shoe but is equally as happy in Spring and Fall with the thermal insulation striking a perfect balance between warmth and more year-round riding. A great option for those racing DH and Enduro due to the level of protection given, the Loam is set to be many riders’ go-to do-everything shoe.
