We’ve recently had a look at and mess about with a lot of new models coming to our Five Ten range in the next few weeks and much later in the year here at Scotby Cycles, please excuse the photos however as it was horrid outside so they were taken in offices here at Scotby Towers.
Three new Sleuth models will be available, a subtle refresh of the classic Sleuth with an updated Dotty™ Tread pattern and a longer heel area - a design trait taken from the more high-end Sleuth DLX. Speaking of the Sleuth DLX, we’ll see a new PU Leather upper version of this model which will be both easier to maintain and improve weather resistance - handy for the time of year in which this is being written in.
The range will also see a new Slip-On version, obviously not a mountain biking shoes or even a serious cycling shoe for that matter - it’s pretty laid back so it will make for a great choice for driving, wearing around the office or riding around the city in the summer months.
We’ll also be stocking two new Five Ten Trailcross models Terrex brand continues to merge into the range from Adidas, namely the Trailcross LT and Trailcross MID Pro, both models are equally capable on and off the bike using a breathable mesh upper which will stay cool on (however rare) hot sunny days and dries quickly when they get wet.
The MID version also benefits from D3O® ankle protection which makes it a possibly ideal replacement for the Impact High (more on that in a moment) if you’re looking for something that isn’t quite so bulky.
Nothing changes for the old faithful Freerider, there is little need to change this model as it just works but we are getting two new colours - an interesting Solar Red/Core Black and best of all a Craft Khaki, this colourway in a Spitfire was hugely popular.
All of the above are expected in January and will be available in-store and online.
We’ll also see two new models, the Impact High will finally be retired during the summer to be replaced with the Impact Pro MID - essentially an Impact Pro with added ankle support and D3O® protection.
We’ll also hopefully see the 5.10 Trailcross GTX which will be Five Ten’s first truly waterproof cycling shoe with a GORE-TEX™ lining, hopefully, because there are some humming and harring about this one as there is some production design issues which will either mean the model is put on the back burner for another time until they can be confident the shoe is as good as it needs to be or will arrive quite late in the year (December 2020) as they’ll take extra time to remedy this - we hope for the latter but we’ll have an update in the summer.
