Five Ten 176,806

The Five Ten Freerider has been a favourite shoe for many riders for some time, we’ve been through our fair share of them here at the office and can’t sing their praises enough. Combining the usual hi-tec features that you get from the brand, such as the Stealth Rubber sole with skate shoe looks it is a match made in heaven.

The shoe is very comfortable to wear, the low cut gives you maximum movement for the ankle, making them great for dirt jumping and tweaking in general. They have a toe cap and heel cup which is sturdy enough to protect your feet from knocks and the grip offered by the Stealth rubber outsoles is fantastic. If you haven’t tried a pair of Five Tens before and were put of by the serious look of some of their other models then these are the perfect antidote, they look great on the bike and down the pub. Available in an array of colours to suit the most discerning rider there should be something for you!

His first mountain bike was a Trek 820, which he bought in 1990. It didn’t take him long to earn himself a trip to the hospital on it, and he’s never looked back since. These days he’s keeping it rubber side down, riding locally and overseas as much as possible.
