Rally trails, protect your toes.
Ion's Raid AMP Bike Shoes are a flat pedal shoe hungry for adventure, built tough enough to handle DH laps, but without a bulky fit, so you can shuttle to the top, or pedal there to earn your laps. These shoes are designed to wrap your foot up for comfortable support, while shedding the elements and protecting your feet from stray rocks and cranks. Ion uses super-tacky rubber for the outsole that's designed to keep you planted when you pedal hard, and features specific tread patterns to increase your pedal contact patch, while maintaining focus on having a supple tread at the toe and heel for hiking a bike.
The synthetic leather uppers wrap your foot in snugly with the support you need, while shedding mud and water on the outside with ease. The uppers see reinforcements in the inner ankle to protect you from stray crank arms, or smacking your frame in the event of a crash. The toes feature additional reinforcement as well, with a rubber cap that shields from rocks and debris, and an additional strip of seamless, glued reinforcement to add a second level to the barrier. To maintain breathability, the shoes use a mesh panel over the toe box, and Jet Stream laser cut vents along the sides, to help prevent the ever-dreaded hot-foot. The inside features a 2K insole designed to both provide damping from big hits, and arch support to reduce fatigue on long rides.
