Five Ten is a leader in high-friction performance footwear. Together with leading experts and scientists, Charles Cole, the Five Ten founder and a climber developed a proprietary rubber compound, the Stealth. In 90's mountain bikers realized that the increased grip can improve their performance as well and Five Ten quickly made its mark among the downhill riders. Five Ten offers shoes for gravity and freeride, both flat and SPD equipped. Athletes like Greg Minnaar, Sam Hill, Nathan Rennie, and Chris Kovarik took podiums while wearing and riding the Five Ten shoes. Grippy, flexible, yet torsionally stable, using cutting-edge technology in rubber sole manufacturing.
