Optimized fit for performance


Whether you’re riding smooth gravel routes or climbing chunky forest service roads, the RX801 delivers maximum efficiency and comfort on all types of terrain. A wider contact area and built-in 


heel stabilizer increase control while the Surround Wrapping Upper construction hugs the foot for optimal fit. New for the RX801 model is a range of half sizes, so more riders can experience the snug, secure, and seamless fit.


The new low-profile BOA® Li2 dial with rubber grip delivers quick and precise micro-adjustments so you can easily dial-in your preferred fit along the way, preventing any pressure points on those longer adventurous races. SHIMANO’s DYNALAST technology ensures the foot is securely held in place, while a stiff and lightweight carbon composite sole enhances every pedal stroke for a smooth, powerful riding performance.
