An outstanding value road cycling shoe with a sleek, minimal upper for cooling comfort and a stiff glass reinforced nylon sole for efficient pedalling action. The R1.0 is the perfect introduction to performance cycle footwear.
|Cleat Fitting - 3 Bolt Look Type:||Yes|
|Sole Material:||Glass Reinforced Nylon|
The dhb R1.0 offers comfort, confidence and capabilities way above its modest price point. The combination of simplicity, quality and function makes it perfect for training, commuting, leisure and sportive riding. The R1.0 is compatible with Shimano SL and Look Keo 3 bolt pedal/cleat systems making it an ideal low-cost introduction to performance cycle footwear. The shoe is not for use with MTB cleats even though it may features drilling for them.
Glass Reinforced Nylon Polymer Sole
The R1.0 sole is built to ensure every watt of energy in your pedal stroke is transferred to the drivetrain and none is lost as flex. The midsole is constructed from premium grade glass reinforced nylon polymer and shaped using stress analysis software to achieve the optimum strength to weight balance. The outsole features textured contact points for traction and stability when walking.
The R1.0 upper is designed to offer a supple, comfortable fit with minimum bulk, effective ventilation and maximum durability. The cuff is lightly padded for a snug, secure fit and quad-core mesh inserts are built into the side panels for air circulation. The toe box features airflow perforations for a balance of heat exchange and chill protection in colder winter conditions.
A thermo-plastic heel counter built into the rear of the shoe provides added support and stiffness for a secure fit when sprinting and increased control when clipping in and out of your pedals.
3 Strap closure
Closure is handled by a simple 3 strap system for quick and easy entry/exit. The straps are positioned to provide even retention along the length of your foot for a comfortable, pressure-free fit. The straps connect directly to the upper to ensure no energy is lost to stretch in the up-stroke stage of your pedalling motion.
Road racing cycling shoes are designed without compromise to provide optimum power transfer between your foot and the pedal, a good quality road cycling shoe is a wise investment for performance and weight saving and is often overlooked. High-tech materials and precision manufacture keep weight down and stiffness up, this means your rotational mass is lower and power transfer is higher, resulting in more forward momentum for your effort.

Light and comfortable road shoes, perfect for training, sportives and entry-level racing. Excellent value too.
The dhb range of cycle clothing has a reputation for good value and these new R1.0 road shoes are no exception. They're light, stiff and comfortable, making them ideal for training, sportives and entry-level racing.
The R1.0 moniker indicates that these shoes are the new version of dhb's R1 model. They don't have a recessed cleat housing, so they're not suitable for touring or commuting if you're going to walk any distance after parking your bike, but for most other forms of road cycling they do the job very nicely indeed.
The upper consists of leather-look synthetic fabric around the base, ankle, tongue and toe box, with some mesh panels along each side for ventilation. The toe box also has some rather retro looking breather holes to further help air in, or moisture out, depending on conditions. Compared to some other shoes, there's not a huge amount of ventilation, but this was no problem on the slight chilly spring days of my test rides, and for all but the hottest days they should be fine.
The area round the heel is rigid - dhb say this is deliberate to help you unclip from your pedals more easily. It seems to work, with no negative pay-off, although I have to say that unclipping has never been in problem in any of my other cycling shoes.
The shoes are fastened with three Velcro straps, and the lining is made from something called 'quad-core mesh' which provides a good degree of padding without your foot feeling sloppy inside. The insole is also slightly spongy, thanks to ribbing on the underside. This provides extra comfort, but you may want to swap it out for something which provides a bit more arch support, depending on the shape and structure of your own feet.
The sole is made from 'premium grade Nylon polymer' and is plenty stiff enough to spread the load and to transfer thrust from your legs into the pedals. As mentioned, there's no recess for a cleat, and the sole's only other features are a small horseshoe-shaped heel stud and a few similar studs under the toe area to aid walking when you really can't be on your bike.
The shoes appear to have fittings for three-hole cleats (Look and SPD-SL) and two-hole cleats (original SPD) but the advice on the Wiggle website (dhb is Wiggle's own brand) is that these shoes take three-hole cleats only. I bolted my Look Keo cleats straight in with no bother.
The R1.0 shoes are available in black or white, with a few bits of red and silver trim. The silver is reflective - a handy touch for all you night-riders out there.
I've done a few hundred miles in these shoes so far. They are definitely comfortable, and I'm not aware of flex in the sole or any other problems.
Sizing seems accurate: I take size 43 in Shimano and Specialized shoes; these dhb R1.0s are also 43 and I don't notice any size discrepancy. I have wide feet and find some shoe brands a bit on the narrow side, but these R1.0s were fine.
Retailing at a penny less than £50, these shoes are very good value for the levels of comfort and performance provided.
Dhb is the own brand of English mail-order company Wiggle. The shoes we have tested are available in a country road version, as well as a version for the forest. We tested the country road shoe. These are their cheapest shoes, and with the price of around 590 SEK it is pretty much the cheapest out there.
If you want a pair of simple and cheap shows that still are good enough for relatively high-level cycling, this is a good choice. Dhb D 1.0 cannot compare with the most expensive shoes from the established manufacturers, but they are still on a high standard, especially when you consider the price.
Only 4 products can be compared at once. Adding this product will remove the product you added to the list first.
