The Five Ten Freerider Contact was developed first and foremost for all-mountain flat pedal riders who desire a stiffer sole and maximum contact with their pedals.

The Contact is an updated version of the popular Freerider VXi which Five Ten phased out a few years ago, but for the Contact they re-engineered the whole upper with a sleeker, slimmer design, abrasion-resistant upper with welded rubber rands which interlock with the mesh upper eliminating any chance of delamination and an added toe protection via a reinforced toe box.

One of the unique features of the Contact is the flat sole area around the area at which the shoe would meet your pedals, this initially this raised a few eyebrows amongst the staff here at Scotby HQ but once you’ve tried this with even a basic set of flat pedals riders find it’s the next best thing to being clipped in.

In order to ratchet up the traction level to eleven, the Freerider Contact also features Five Ten’s latest STEALTH® Mi6™ rubber compound. This compound delivers unprecedented cushioning, shock absorption and extraordinarily high friction levels even under low loads and on a variety of low traction surfaces such as glass, metal and polished rock.

All in all, the Freerider Contact can more than hold up to the rigours of laps down the downhill park as well as long rides in the back-country and it’s the secret weapon for riders who need speed, agility and sure-footedness without clips.

Recommended Use

The Contact is an out and outperformance shoe, with its soft Mi6™ rubber compound soles which in turn deliver maximum grip on flat pedals - liken it to sticking a fresh set of Pirelli P1 race tyres on your car and throwing it around Silverstone for an afternoon, the Contact is ideal for any time of riding but it's most suited for riders who hit fast and flowing trails. Due to the softness of Mi6™, we do recommend you use pedals without overly aggressive pins, if you like some gnarly pins on your pedals (think of your shins, think of your shins!) then maybe look at Freerider Pro with its much more durable S1™ compounds.
