Clipping into your pedal adds power and better efficiency as you spin. The unique Shimano Click’R Line includes shoes and clip-in pedals made for first-timers. An easy, low-tension clip-in/out mechanism makes foot connection on the pedal less intimidating. The shoes, which have leather and mesh on the uppers, offer an easy-to-walk-in sole with a recessed cleat.
