Crankbrothers Mallet Trail clip-in shoes come with a Match shim and Crankbrothers cleat pre-installed in a neutral position so they are ready to ride with our pedals right out of the box with minimal set-up time. The extended 35mm cleat track length allows the cleat to be positioned further toward the heel for added stability when descending.
Our innovative MATCH System is a design approach that considers the pedal and shoe as a unified system to provide an optimized interface. Crankbrothers Mallet Trail shoes are optimized for our pedals, but work with any MTB clip-in system regardless of your pedal choice. The ramped cleat box offers easy front and rear pedal entry and mud shedding. Our mid-friction rubber compound (MC1) allows for easy pedal entry and exit, and the deep, evenly spaced lugs provide consistent and predictable grip on and off the bike, so you can ride and hike with confidence.
Crankbrothers Mallet Trail shoes feature a lightweight synthetic upper with premium materials for breathability, protection and comfort. Strategically placed perforations in the upper provide ventilation to keep feet cool in hot weather and dry quickly in wet conditions. Reinforced TPU in the toe box provides protection against rock strikes and impacts.
