The Trailcross range was built from the ground up, starting with the Five Ten dotted outsole for flat pedal performance on the bike. This was then refined with hiking in mind, bringing the additional ridged grip to the toe and heel. The Trailcross GTX is a hi-top design allowing for use in more extreme conditions alongside GORE-TEX waterproof technology for all weather protection. With the need for the shoe to provide all day comfort but also deliver across the contact points on and off the bike, the mid-sole EVA technology provides the necessary comfort without losing the all-important pedal stability. The Trailcross GTX utilises a reinforced upper for added stability, additionally a neoprene hook and loop ankle cuff helps to keep debris out of the shoe.
