Less Chatter. More Control.
The Latch is built to be the best connection possible between you and flat pedals - especially when the trail gets fast and rowdy. We started with a new fit that brings the foot closer to the pedal and flattens the sole profile, optimizing the contact patch between sole and pedal. Then we collaborated with a team of rubber engineers to formulate Tack Rubber, a highly elastic compound that matches grip with durability in our new Gamma tread design. And at the heart of the shoe is a revelation in performance called Mute Foam, a midsole foam that’s specially engineered with a slow-rebound action that cuts chatter and vibration to help keep you connected to the pedal, regardless of ruts, roots and rocks. The unique combination of fit, a fast-drying Microfiber upper, the grip of Tack Rubber and the damping of Mute Foam makes Latch a new benchmark in flat pedal performance.
Rockprint reinforcement along the toe and heel offers abrasion resistance and enhanced durability.
In addition to infinite adjustability and the ability to conform to each zone of the foot, laces offer easy replacement and customization, a more natural feel across the foot and reliability in even the most adverse conditions. Our tubular woven laces are designed to be highly durable, light and to hold a knot securely without slipping.
Mute Foam is a proprietary nanofoam with slow rebound characteristics that help to damp chatter, bumps, and vibration. When formed into a shoe's midsole, it acts like suspension to help keep feet comfortably planted on the pedals.
I've been using this for XC-style riding on a singlespeed. I don't like riding SS with clipless.
The shoe is a bit tight and narrow, so I'm going to experiment with loosening the laces. Otherwise, exactly as advertised... it's light and minimal. I'm going to enjoy this shoe.
