The new Five Ten Freerider Pro PrimeBlue is the Freerider Pro but constructed partly using PrimeBlue, a material created using upcycled Parley Ocean Plastic™ recovered from beaches and other coastal environments which is both as durable as those used for the regular Freerider Pro but also environmentally friendly.
Asides from the new PrimeBlue materials, this Freerider Pro is entirely the same as the regular Freerider Pro with a low-profile design, modern SLEALTH® S1™ dotty outsole which riders have raved on about for years thanks to its proven flat pedal grip and durability.
The Freerider Pro PrimeBlue also features mountain biking specific technologies such as an updated synthetic upper, a breathable, fast-drying and weather-resistant fabric construction along with a reinforced toe box and increased stiffness for superior power transfer.
S1™ continues to be the benchmark compound for hiking and mountain biking shoes thanks to its capacity to absorbs 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 Pro PrimeBlue is an ideal all-round model, ideal for aggressive all-mountain riding and even a little bit of light downhill riding, the Freerider Pro PrimeBlue, with STEALTH® S1™ has excellent cushioning, shock absorption and durability.
- Updated S1™ full dotty outsole
- Synthetic lightweight weather-resistant fast-drying upper
- Impact-resistant 4 layer toe box which uses 2mm of Poron impact resistant foam
- Compression Molded EVA Midsole for long term cushioning
- Removable OrthoLite® molded sock liner
PrimeBlue is a high-performance recycled material made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic™ which is created using upcycled plastic waste such as PET bottles and packaging, intercepted on remote islands, beaches, coastal communities and shorelines, preventing it from polluting our oceans which inevitably it would do so without such intervention.
adidas Five Ten is using the material in leu of virgin plastics which would otherwise be used in the manufacture of its products.
You can learn more about the Parley project by visiting their website or support them by choosing this or other Five Ten models constructed using PrimeBlue materials.
Five Ten Size Guide
For tight fit, go one size down.
For a loose fit, go one size up.
The sizing for Five Ten shoes has shifted over the past few years, historically the shoes were famous for being quite roomy so riders would often size down. However, the later models such as anything with Pro in the name feature a more athletic, a narrower, closer fit for performance.
We'd recommend you follow the sizing advice below, testing a range of models in the office (a member of staff, typically wears a UK 10/Euro 44 and a 280mm foot length) always opted for UK 9.5 with the exception for the Freerider Pro, Impact Pro and Trailcross ranges for which he sized up to a UK 10.
- Place a piece of paper on a hard floor with one end of the wall, stand on the piece of paper (wearing socks) with the heel slightly touching the wall.
- Mark the end of your longest toe with a pencil for both feet, it's easier if you let someone help you with this.
- Measure your marking from the wall (heel) to the longest toe for both feet, take the larger of the foot lengths and compare it with the sizing chart above to work out your ideal Five Ten shoe size.
