2012 shimano r241 road race shoe   2012 Shimano R241 Road Race Shoe

A new elite-level road race shoe for 2012 from Shimano is the R241. Revamping several models for 2012, Shimano has avoided the semi-custom layer offering the R241 shoe as a full-custom. This custom-fit model comes with a hollow carbon-fiber sole.


Completely moldable, the upper, the toe box, and the insole fit the contour of the rider’s feet. Heated up in the oven and vacuum fitted, spaces are reduced to further optimize comfort. On the upper strap, the shoes get a low profile buckle giving it a huge aero advantage over a standard buckle.

Weighing in at 543gl (a size 40) the 2012 Shimano R241 Road Race Shoe has incredibly flexible and soft moisture-control mesh sections and uses microfibre that is very resistant to stretching. It is available in two colors, which are blue/black and silver/black.
