Strengths:    Looks

Weaknesses:    Needs more stiffness
Needs to be worn loose to avoid numbing of feet

Bottom Line:   
These were my first road shoes and i wore these and didnt want to try others because i was content. Its very comfortable. Ratchet strs for the price makes the value great. It looks competitive. But later on i was just curious on how the high end shoes compare and man it was different. So these are for sure some entry level shoes but very good indeed

Strengths:    Stiff, Comfortable, Good looking, Reflective, Easy to use ratchet and velcro straps.

Weaknesses:    Have only put on about 100 miles in these shoes, but so far I have no complaints.

Bottom Line:   
Very nice shoe for the money. I went to my local shop expecting to spend 200 bucks and walked out with these for half the price. I was surprised how stiff they were for having plastic sole. Id recommend these to anyone looking for a comfortable, stiff shoe at a great price point. You could easily spend twice as much for the same quality shoe from another manufacturer.

Strengths:    * Price
* Lightweight
* Looks smart, classic look

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great shoe for the price. It fits well, it is light and looks smart. No ratchet, but I don't find that necessary. I actually saw the RO-75, which I assume is the predecessor, on sale in my size for cheap; tried it on and there was a noticeable difference between the two. The improvements they made on this show was fantastic.
