    Anyone tried the new Adidas Terrex SWIFT Solos?

    Has anyone tried the latest Terrex Swifts? The ones that look like this: Terrex Swift Solo

    How is the stiffness? They have a lot of what I'm looking for: super lightweight with a minimal upper, stealth rubber, protected toe. But a bike shoe needs a stiff sole and those look pretty floppy.

    I have the old vanilla Terrex Solos and the stiffness is perfect, Im hoping these new ones will be about the same.

    Hey those look really cool! I would be a bit concerned by the ultra light upper for where I ride... not sure how high up that reinforcement goes? I have 5 10's and I swear, if I'd had a regular shoe on I would have broken my big toe on the root I hit. No pics of the bottoms either. I do like those, but I LOVE my 5 10's.

    Those are nice looking shoes and $100 us seems reasonable

    Look like they​ might be a bit flexible, their Trail Cross being a big specific shoe might be a better bet

    Anyone try the slack cruiser? I heard they have a stiffer mid sole that should help with pedaling.

    Slack cruisers have nice sole (not as sticky as stickiest 5.10s) but toe cap is too low for longer rides.

    Are the Solos narrow?

    100% spot on. they are way too flexible and light. my feet hurt after 30 minutes.

    my fiveten freeriders are 3 years old and are much firmer.
