SCOTT MTB RC ULTIMATE SHOES
Worn by the best
Scott Sports has seen a lot of success the last few race seasons with racers like Nino Schurter and Jenny Rissveds winning Olympic gold medals and World Cup races. The RC Ultimate shoe was designed to match the performance of Scott’s RC line of cross-country race bikes. This shoe has a smaller volume fit designed spe- cifically for racing. Scott uses its Power Zone outsole for comfort during longer rides and HMX carbon for a lightweight yet stiff product. The RC shoes havea Boa IP-1 closure system and retail for $350 a pair. Check out your local Scott dealer to try them. www.scott-sports.com
