Greg Minnaar FiveTen Freeride MTB shoes

Minnaar_FiveTenIn May 2010 FiveTen will be offering freeriders a new clipless pedal shoe called the Minnaar. While they may be white these Minnaar shoes are telling me to steal them. Despite the Minnaar name on the Velcro strap in these prototypes the final versions will remain sleek and nameless.

The Minnaar’s will feature the same Stealth Rubber soles that make FiveTen sought after. This legendary sole is wicked popular among gravity riders. But Minnaar’s will be for riders who want to ride clipped-in with SPD’s. With the sticky sole you’ll be able to find the pedal and bang-in to the clips smoothly. The Sam Hill Monster shoes also have the S1 version of the sole without SPD compatibility.

The sole is not particularly flexible, but feedback is positive enough to know where you are on the pedals, and power transfer solidly delivers without energy loss.

FiveTen could have featured both Minnaar’s and Sam Hill’s name more prominently but a lot of racers in the Pro field want to ride them so they pulled back only printing his name on the back of the shoe near the ankle.

The Sam Hill Monster shoes are available now, and the Greg Minnaar Clipless Shoes will be hitting stores in late Spring in the middle of May 2010.

  1. Will FiveTen be offering Sam Hill clipless?
    If not…. what is the best pedal to use with the sam hill? My pedals are killing me. The only time I get hurt is when my feet slip off, and the pedal hits me in the shin. ouchhh.. I imagine I could wear the Sam Hills on my fixed gear or single speed fully rigid niner but what pedals would work best?
    Has anyone tried the Greg’s yet? They look awesome and high quality.

    I’m not sure if FiveTen will extend clipless to the Sam Hill’s. Something makes me doubt it, but if I hear something I will let you know.
