Regular cycling shoes are not designed for cold weather riding, as they are not properly insulated for in-climate weather.  Scott sports offers up a solution that allows you to keep your feet warm while pedaling in deep winter.

The MTB Shr-Alp RS cycling shoes provide insulation to keep your toes toasty while allowing you to clip in and stay in control of your bike.  Fitted with a BOA closure system for a customized fit and a sticki rubber outsole with a stiffness index of 7, this is the cycling shoe for winter rides.

 

Don’t let the cold weather stop you from hitting the trails on your bike. Be sure to get the right gear so you can stay pedaling even if it is below freezing outside. For all your winter weather MTB needs, visit btosports’ MTB section to get all the gear highlighted in this blog.
