Crank Brothers Candy Gravel XC Lace shoes

Whether logging gravel miles, bike-packing across continents, or embarking on singletrack missions deep into the hills, the Candy Lace is the perfect companion for those long, adventurous rides. The Candy Lace features a stiff, fiber-reinforced nylon shank for efficient power transfer, paired with a minimalist synthetic upper, vibration-absorbing EVA insole, and a relaxed fit to provide a comfortable, ride-all-day feel. Tinnovative Match System optimizes engagement for Crankbrothers clip-in pedals, while the extended 35mm cleat track retains compatibility with other common clip-in pedals. Cleats are not included with Candy Lace shoes - remember to add a fresh set for your clip-in system of choice.

Premium materials & construction
The Candy Lace's premium synthetic upper is constructed from durable, water-resistant materials, with perforations for enhanced breathability. A traditional lace closure system complete with lace retention loop keeps your foot comfortably secure.

Optimized pedal interface
A stiff, fiber-reinforced nylon shank transfers power efficiently, while an extended 35mm-length cleat track allows for personalized cleat position. The cleat box depth is carefully chosen to allow for optimal shoe-to-pedal contact.

Adventure-ready outsole
Full-coverage MC1 rubber outsole and directionally-angled toe and heel lugs offer traction for any terrain. A ramped toe and curved outsole profile allow for a natural stride off the bike. The mid-foot anti-slip zone offers stability while unclipped.

Toe protection
A TPU-reinforced toe box combined with a raised outsole at the front of the shoe provide critical protection against impacts.
