The lines between performance cycling and casual commuting have blurred so much so that a lot of new products have quite a crossover appeal. The new DZR Mechanic shoes are a perfect example, with a subdued look that doesn’t draw attention while still having the clipless performance to keep you moving.
Part of the brand’s Street Collection, the Mechanic has a variable flex shank that splits the difference between comfortable walking and powerful pedaling. The synthetic leather toecap is perforated for breathability and the ballistic nylon side panels should be plenty durable. The outsole is capped with a natural gum rubber for a classic look.
Right now they’re available in men’s sizes from 41 to 47 for $99.Tweet Print
LOOK knows a thing or three about clipless pedals: the French brand was the first to make a widely adopted clipless road pedal in the mid-1980s. For 2013, it has redesigned its mountain bike offering with versatility and durability in mind.Tweet Print
