Prices shown in currencies other than USA Dollars are estimates based on current exchange rates. We will charge your credit card in USA Dollars on the day your order is shipped, and the conversion to your local currency will be done at the prevailing rate by your credit card issuer.
Shipments outside the USA are declared as “bike parts” for customs purposes and will include the actual amount paid for merchandise and shipping. Jenson USA will not mark your parcel as a “gift”, declare a value lower than the actual price paid, or otherwise prepare false customs information.
Simplicity is a thing of beauty, and Shimano’s R078 road shoes serve as perfect evidence. You can say that judging by their price point the R078 shoes are “entry level,” but if you stand back and look at them again, you can see that’s simply not the case. Sure the more race-focused shoes feature a ratcheting buckle and carbon soles, but the R078 shoes offer a simple “three straps and you’re in” closure system that’s plenty secure for mid-week training or weekend club rides. Weighing a tad more than carbon fiber, the fiberglass reinforced nylon outer sole provides a sturdy platform for kicking up steep climbs, jockeying quick descents and making quick accelerations on the group rides. Additionally, SPD and SPD- SL cleat compatibility enables the R078 road shoes to be used both on the road and even in the gym, if you’re into that.
In its essence, the R078 may not be a first choice for seasoned racers, but for just about everything else, including learning how to clip-in, putting in off-season training, or commuting, the Shimano R078 shoes are an excellent option and a great case for expelling the term “entry-level” from the cycling dictionary.
Editor’s Note: One of our employees had the chance to put a pair of the R078 shoes through some strides. Be sure to click here to read the Employee Tested review in the Jenson USA Journal.
