FiveTen's Hellcat SPD-compatible shoe is perfect for the DH bike. It has a stiff sole, sticky rubber and a strap to keep the laces from getting caught up in your drivetrain. The Hellcat is a bit too bulky for cross-country riding since it's built with protection over ventilation in mind, but if you're jumping into enduro racing, where we race DH tracks on trail bikes, the Hellcat is ideal.
What FiveTen Says:
This SPD compatible shoe with super high-friction Stealth® rubber is an unbeatable combination for riding clipless. The durable action leather uppers have reinforced stitching and Velcro® brand strap closures. Stiff, powerful midsoles ensure performance, while the one-piece molded Stealth® S1™ outsole offers technique-enhancing traction that works in conjunction with SPD design.
