With its eye-catching colours and stand-out flamboyance, the Shimano RX8 is ready to take on any surface you throw at it. The Shimano RX8’s colour scheme draws its inspiration from the Santa Rita Prickly Pear Cactus, native to Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. It is designed to support you on your adventures on the path less travelled, wherever in the world that might be.
The original Shimano RX8, released in black and silver in 2019, boasted an impressively svelte physique. The new purple and green variation adopts this characteristic, shedding traditional off-road shoe features to create a lightweight 265g (size 42) model with foot-cushioning holding power and a stiff race-orientated carbon composite sole.
Comfort is a significant consideration for gravel adventurers, and the Shimano RX8 doesn’t disappoint. It features an adjustable Boa IP1 dual micro adjustment dial and a Silvadur Stay-Fresh treatment on the insole material. Additionally, you can find a snug heel cup, and adjustable arch supports so riders will feel equally comfortable in both dry, arid landscapes and cool, forested areas.
And for all the racing know-how and development that went into making the RX8, the abrasion-resistant TPU lugs, rubber toe and heel bumpers and durable synthetic leather outer mean that these shoes can take a beating.
Whether you choose the new Shimano RX8 or the original, you still get the best of both worlds – proven road-racing technology and an adventurous ruggedness that can help you go further, faster.
The Shimano RX8 is available in its new purple and green fade from October. The original silver, black or women’s navy blue are available while stocks last.
