Suplest derives from the word 'supple' and also the term 'souplesse.' We're familiar with 'supple' used to describe something that is soft and flexible, and 'souplesse' is a method of training -- or oneness with the machine -- that involves a natural, fluid, and power-free pedaling motion. We find that the blending of these two descriptive words is an appropriate name for this Swiss brand's new footwear line, as that effortless and silky-smooth pedal stroke is something we all constantly strive for while spinning away on our bikes. The Streetracing Shoes are Suplest's top-end road model, designed to be lightweight, rigid, and, most importantly, comfortable.

Additional ventilation is ensured via the perforations in the forefoot inserts and padded tongue. For the closure system, the Streetracing Shoes were treated with two hook-and-loop lower straps and a ratcheting buckle top strap. The lower straps provide a secure yet comfortable hold on the forefoot, allowing you to customize the volume lower down in the shoe, and the angled top strap locks the heel down and into the molded pocket. The lightweight alloy ratcheting top buckle allows you quickly dial in your preferred retention setting.
