Shimano has expanded its range of indoor cycling shoes with the launch of the IC501, which features the brand’s FUZE technology, an anti-bacterial treatment designed to help keep the shoes more hygienic following vigorous workouts.
Not surprisingly, the IC501 is designed to be walked in thanks to its recessed cleat and grippy, full-length rubber outsole that sits flush with the sole to make walking on slick, sweat-splattered fitness studio floors worry-free.
“Our new IC501 indoor cycling shoes are also the first shoe of its kind to incorporate innovative FUZE technology. This eco-friendly, non-toxic, chemical-free treatment permanently adheres to surfaces and zaps odor-causing bacteria, fungus, and mildew, helping extend the life of your shoe. Now you can forever ditch that funky locker room smell and instead clip in for every workout feeling fresh and ready to perform at your best. FUZE’s long-lasting, anti-bacterial treatment precisely targets odor-causing bacteria and fungus that come in contact with the treated surface. And FUZE does not use surfactants or chemicals as binders, meaning no harmful effects on the environment. FUZE is also proven to speed evaporation, further enhancing the cooling effect of these best-in-class indoor cycling shoes,” boasts Shimano.
Other features of the IC501 include a Boa L6K closure system with a wide instep strap, along with Boa’s TX4 lace that’s made from a mix of Dyneema and polyester for optimal strength.
Tipping the scales at 279g in a size 40, the IC501 is available three colorways, Black, Ice Grey and Wine Red in sizes 36-41 for women and 42-48 for men for $135.
