Designed for mountain bikers who ride every day regardless of the weather; with a DWR treated upper the Freerider DLX will keep the worst of the weather out.
Rebranded in 2019 as the 'Freerider DLX' with model was previously known as the Freerider Element, the DLX is essentially a Classic Freerider but with a DWR treated upper designed specifically for the British market where (let’s be honest) the weather is often a bit damp especially in our neck of the woods here in Cumbria – around here being a fair-weather rider will seriously limit your trail time, to say the least.
Five Ten is all about performance and technical advantage and so they've upped the bar by adding this weatherized Freerider to the range. This all-mountain shoe has a DWR treated synthetic upper that beads and repels water like a duck.
With its comfortable fit, supportive midsole and high-friction, STEALTH® Freerider Dotty tread outsole combines with STEALTH® S1™ outsoles which are without doubt the preferred compound for hiking and mountain biking shoes thanks to its unique capacity to absorb far more shock than traditional rubber outsoles whilst its high friction properties offer a balance between grip and durability which makes the S1™ compound highly versatile.
The Freerider DLX is ideal for all-around mountain biking, it's largely based on the original Freerider with all its qualities but with a weather-resistant upper which makes the DLX the ideal shoe for year-round riding here in the UK.
Founded in 1985, Five Ten is dedicated to making the absolute best outdoor sports footwear available although initially focused on climbing they began developing models for alternative sports such as mountain biking and the rest, as they say, is history.
