Shimano’s flagship RP9 road shoe combines beauty and high performance without sacrificing comfort. Thanks to an ultra-stiff woven carbon-fiber sole, the RP9 becomes your body's foundation for absolute power and pedaling efficiency. This works in symbiosis with the shoe’s heat-moldable midsole and wrap-around upper, which provide comfort and performance-enhancing fit like you’ve never experienced. The RP9’s minimalist upper design focuses on all-day comfort and functional performance, utilizing an adaptable closure system that accommodates various foot shapes and keeps the shoe uncluttered and aerodynamic. And, you’ll fall in love with the air port on the toe that brings air into the shoe to carry heat and moisture out the exhaust ports on the sole, helping your feet stay cool, dry, and comfortable.
