    Clipless shoe with most rear set cleat?

    Hi all,
    Just wondering if anyone knows which clipless shoes
    Have the most rear set cleats?
    Mostly for trail/all mountain kinda stuff, looking for a clipless shoe
    That mimics a platform ergo.
    Thanks!

    I'm curious as well about this. In my research (none of it being hands on) the Giro Chamber and Teva Pivot are the most rear biased...it would be nice to hear from someone with actual experience though.

    Mavic Alpine XL and Five Ten Maltese Falcon LT clipless have quite rear set cleat. Or at least it looks like.

    I have elongated the slots by about 1/2 inch on all my shoes for years now. Drill 1/4 in. hole (apx.) behind existing slot and cut the rest. Sometimes you might have to trim a little of the tread but I usually have not.

    The Shimano DH/FR shoe has its slots farther back than standard. You could slot those so the axle sits well behind the ball of your foot.
