If you prefer the control and bail-out safety of flat pedals but want all the latest shoe tech, the Crankbrothers Stamp Speedlace is a great choice. With the Black Friday mountain bike deals very much upon us, we've picked out some of the best Crankbrothers Stamp Speedlace deals currently available.
Riders who prefer the best MTB flat pedal shoes have been limited by choice, for too many seasons, regarding closure systems and overall shoe technology. With more trail riders willing to try flat pedals, Crankbrothers developed the Stamp Speedlace to deliver a flat pedal shoe with contemporary riding and walking comfort.
Sleek styling and packaging shape a flat pedal shoe that doesn’t look like an oversized skate sneaker. The Stamp Speedlace distinguishes itself by using a dual-closure system, with a single horizontal Velcro strap and looping Speedlace, secured by a Boa dial.
Breathability is excellent, thanks to heel dots and perforations in the tongue and fore section of the Stamp Speedlace upper. There are mesh panels along the sides, too, to increase cooling airflow.
Beyond the clever closure system, ergonomics and ventilation, the Stamp Speedlace also features a dedicated outer sole design and tread pattern.
Flat pedal riders know the importance of rubber compound and tread shape. How your shoe meshes with the pins and structure of a flat pedal, makes a huge difference in ride comfort and confidence.
With the Stamp Speedlace, footwear designers at Crankbrothers opted for a tread pattern that balances between pedal contact and walking traction. Instead of using the same tread pattern throughout the Stamp Speedlace’s contact pact, it has a specific shape where the shoe contacts the pedal.
There are large lugs at the heel and extreme fore portions of the Stamp Speedlace tread, which provide excellent walking traction for confident striding when you are doing a hike-a-bike in steep terrain.
Crankbrothers also use MC2 Match compound rubber for the Stamp Speedlace outsole, to deliver excellent grip, regardless of weather conditions. Or when you are riding on wet pedals during winter.
