    MTBR doesn't have any reviews nor the internet. It is still a new shoe.

    I have that exact show. It's ok. Great to hike/walk in. Doesn't have a stiff pedalling sole. My 5.10 Hellcats are better pedalling shoes, and the soles are super sticky. Maybe slightly less comfort walking. Hellcats may be slightly heavier also. Never weighed either shoe.

    I bought that shoe brand new for the Colorado Trail Race and after the 100 or so miles of hike a bike on the trail the threads on the inside near the toe started to come undone. You can't see the threads in the pic on the website but I can take a pic when I get home.
    I had the X Alp II before that and liked that shoe a lot, but I can't find them anymore.

    I've been riding this shoe for ~9 months, like it well enough. The sizing (or my feet) is a little odd. I thought that I would like the straps to tighten better than laces but the ratchet bottoms out just a wee bit before I would like it to. Next pair of shoes will be laces like my last ones. Really comfy to walk in though. I used to have to drive to the trail in sneakers then change into riding shoes. These are comfy enough to drive in. Basically sneakers with a stiffer sole and cleats. Breathe well too.
