ION’s flat-pedal shoe Raid Amp comes with an asymmetrical shaft including the Ankle_Pad to add some protection on the crank side. The specific flat-pedal sole called SupTraction Rubber Soul FL (FL for flat pedal) featuring an EVA midsole shows dedicated pedal zones. They extend from the ball of the foot to the very end of the midfoot area. Toe and heel areas are shaped with particular climb zones to ensure maximum traction off the pedal. The second main focus during development has been placed on the right mixture of stiffness in the longitudinal axis and flexibility across the lateral axis: a flat-pedal shoe needs to provide power transmission without any compromises in the longitudinal axis when pedaling. On the lateral axis you need a certain flex to prevent the foot from tilting on the pedal but still allow for effective steering impulses. And all this while maintaining comfortable foot roll behavior. The shaft of the Raid Amp is made from synthetic leather. In the toe area a pre-shaped firm toe box protects the foot when it hits rocks or roots. A two-component insole (2C insole) supports the arch in the midfoot area and adds some extra damping to the heel section.
After I had always bought the 5th I wanted to try the ION. The ION looks good and is well made. A sturdy shoe. The shoe fits well, I oriented myself to the size chart. All in all, a good MTB shoe. Deduction is at the sole. I have now ridden on two different flat-pedals and unfortunately has to say that the shoe does not stick so well on the pedals, which makes for me a very good MTB shoe. For a light tour a good shoe, in the bike park but I prefer more liability and will take the 5th.
Nachdem ich immer 5 tens gekauft hatte wollte ich mal den ION probieren. Der ION schaut gut aus und ist gut verarbeitet. Ein robuster Schuh. Der Schuh passt gut, ich habe mich an der Grössentabelle orientiert. Alles in allem ein guter MTB-Schuh. Abzug gibt es bei der Sohle. Ich bin inzwischen auf zwei verschiedenen Flatpedals gefahren und muss leider sagen, dass der Schuh nicht so gut auf den Pedalen klebt, was für mich allerdIngs einen guten MTB-Schuh ausmacht. Für leichte Touren ein guter Schuh, im Bikepark mag ich allerdings lieber mehr Haftung und werde dafür die 5 tens nehmen.
