Strengths:    comfort, stiff

Weaknesses:    none but look dated now, but they are old! In hindsight one more strap would have been nice, but you get that on the 2004 model.

Bottom Line:   
Have had a pair of these shoes (yellow blue ones) for two years now and no complaints what-so-ever. As comfortable now as the first day i bought them and have done over 4000 miles in them. They were my first clipless road shoe so can't comment if they're more comfy than others, but have had no hot or cold spots and no numbness so they fitted me perfectly. No knee complaints either, maybe the BG stuff does work. Either way they're dying a death now so am looking for replacements...oh where to start. They've earned their monies worth though.

Note price in GB sterling

Strengths:    No neon color scheme.
I don't feel like an astronaut wearing them.
Body Geometry fit.
Great Ventilation


Weaknesses:    Two Straps.
Realtively unagressive stance.


Bottom Line:   
I was forced to purchase these out of necessity. I hate clip ins (last pair was a Sidi Genius 3) but crappy toe straps on a high end bike look rediculous. I also thought that neon yellow on my feet was also rediculous. I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. The only all black or white shoes I could find were these. They were comfortable to walk in and not too much cash so I bought them. I was pleasantly surprised. The Sidi's I had always hurt my bad knees, maybe the shoes, maybe the Look pedals I was running. These actually wedge your feet outward and my knees have never felt better. I always thought road shoes were about stiffness and good tight fit. Now I don't know about the only two velcro straps on these, another one would be nice to keep me snug, but the form of the shoe is great, and THAT makes them the most comfortable I have ever owned. I will always but Body GEometry shoes from now on, probably a step up next time...

A bit of advice if you would...I have a son who is wanting to do road races, and triathlons. We raced a few weeks ago on our fitness bikes and got a wake up. Now the problem is the cash flow. He is paying for 1/2 of his bike. I'm looking at maybe the synapse 5 for myself. not the carbon.(price) I se ... Read More »
