Shimano’s new Torbal Technology (Torsional Balance) allows the outsole to twist, allowing for lateral movement of the rider, while keeping the forefoot aligned with the pedal. This is claimed to encouragesa natural rider “flow” motion, improving control especially during technical downhills, and allowing aggressive trail riders to push their limits even further.

The Enduro/Trail line of shoes also features special new dual-density, extra-cushion insoles for stability during the pedal stroke and enhanced shock absorption and cushioning for the foot. Heels and toes are protected from impacts with the combination of the low-profile, armored upper and molded, raised rubber sole.

Three models are offered: SH-M200, SH-M163, SH-M089
