Performance shoe from Shimano, with a design focus on pedalling efficiency. Lightweight carbon fibre composite sole provides more cleat adjustment than previous models. New Shimano Dynalast secures the foot in the optimum ergonomic position to yield more power in the upstroke.
Comfort is provided by open mesh panels which provide excellent breathability and dual-density insoles. Stretch-resistant synthetic leathers hold your foot firmly, and a micro-adjust buckle provides incredible tension adjustment, even while riding.

After wearing out my Bonts, I was looking at the R320s, but these fit so well right out of the box that it was too easy not to spend more. The fit is snug around the midfoot and heel, a bit wider than average in the forefoot, with a firm hold around the instep and a roomy toe box--sort of like Specialized but better, and without the built-in varus wedge. Shimano's Dynalast fit is amazing.
Recently received these shoes, upgrading from a set of Shimano shoes that were over three years old. I had tried some other brands of shoes on and Shimano seems consistently the most comfortable brand so I stuck with them. The R170s are much lighter and hence I feel lighter and faster. They are very comfortable like my prior shoes were. However when I kneeled over on them the plastic front cracked which is not cool.
