Why We Like The Freerider Pro Mid VCS Cycling Shoe

Made for bombing enduro trails and ripping some downhill laps, the Freerider Pro Mids give us enhanced impact protection in the box and inner ankle. They use a mid-height ankle cuff to keep out dirt and debris, as well as a Stealth rubber outsole for the best possible grip on our flat pedals.

Love how it fits, but doesn’t last very long.

The Velcro does not last. I had to retire these shoes because the Velcro failed before the soles of the shoes. Definitely a bummer.

Looks good

All good except for too smaller ankle area to fit in

10/10 would buy and reccomended.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love the simplicity of getting them on and the three Velcro straps that keep them tight! Great MTB shoe choice for sure! Fight snug against angle and have protection built in.

Five Ten Freerider PRO MID VCS mountain

I returned this product before using it

Was looking for a flat pedal shoe with either a BOA or Velcro closure. Tired of having my shoelaces chewed up by my front sprockets. The Five Ten Freerider PRO MID VCS mountain bike shoes hit all the checkpoints except I found it hard to get my foot into the built-in sock. Otherwise it was a good fit and gripped the pedals as firmly as the Five Ten’s I currently ride with. Unfortunately after a several tests to insert my foot into the shoe, found this just too much of an aggravation and returned the shoes. For those who do a lot of gravel riding this likely be a winner for you. However, for me who uses his gravel bike almost exclusively on the asphalt, the socks are superfluous. Still waiting for Five Ten to make a purely flat bottom shoe with BOA or Velcro closure.

Improved my MTB experience instantly

Grip is outstanding. Nice solid feeling base really helps you drive into the pedals and supports your foot massively on drops and tough terrain. The velcro allows you to apply extra pressure exactly where feels best for you, and the sock closure helps the shoe sit closer to the ankle so its snug; no heel slip at all. Solid, robust upper constructed of premium materials/techniques, yet no heavier than your average trainer/sneaker. Absolute beast of a shoe! I honestly wouldn’t want to ride anything else. Hoping the velcro holds up long term, it seems like its high enough quality to.

Ankle Chainsaws

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The shoe works as well as the traditional Freerider Pro's (i.e. Stealth rubber) and will keep sand out of your shoe with the built-in sock. The total failure comes from the fact that the tongue cut into my ankles when going through the full motion of pedaling. The tongue edge is a thin and stiff-ish material that does not give when you pedal.

Great Shoes!

I've used it several times

I've been using these down to 40F and has worked perfectly. The ankle collar keeps out debris, which all my other shoes collect. Nice roomy toe box, stiff sole, legendary rubber.
