If you ride in cold and wet conditions, you'll want a pair of Diablo GTX winter mountain shoes for those long wintertime rides and commuting runs. An insulated, fully waterproof Gore-Tex upper keeps your feet warm. The Competition MTB Sole and optional toe spikes gives your feet traction when you have to hoof it. The Diablo shoes allow you to have fun riding even in challenging conditions.
Diablo GTX mountain shoes and Hydro GTX road shoes employ a four-layer upper for optimal durability, weatherproofing and winter comfort. They feature, from the outside in: A tough exterior of Lorica® panels and breathable heavy-duty nylon inserts. The next layer is a seamless inner Gore-Tex® bootie for waterproof, breathable comfort. There is a third Light insulating layer and finally a soft inner liner.
The gusseted upper fits snugly around the ankle, creating a waterproof barrier where ordinary shoes would allow water to enter the shoe around the tongue. For optimal comfort and performance the wide neoprene-and-Velcro strap must be snug around the ankle, with tights or rain pants tucked around the outside of the boot.
