What’s in Kansas, the so-called Wheat State? I’m from there, and I’m right here to let you know: now not a lot. Except for unbound gravel, and wide-open skies.
happily, Unbound is strictly what Shimano had in thoughts with the discharge of its new gravel sneakers. Three entries of the Flint Hills Edition RX8 and RX6 riff at the break of day, sundown, and moonlight that blanket Kansas when the Unbound gravel race descends on it each and every June.
The sneakers, Shimano mentioned, “celebrate the early mornings and late nights that riders undertake while pushing their limits in Kansas each summer.”
Cyclists have spun on Shimano’s RX race platform for years. In the phrases of BikeRumor’s Cory Bensonthe RX8 used to be “Shimano getting serious about gravel from a proper race perspective” again in 2019.
But you should by no means get a couple till now in “Twilight” — or the extra moderate-spec RX6 in both “Sunrise” or “Moonlight.”
The designs most commonly discuss for themselves, of their gradient colour palettes. The route maps on Sunrise and Moonlight are a fab contact. Meanwhile, “Twilight” brings the focal point at the route in tighter: You’ll realize element that resembles rolling hills on its purple and crimson, perforated higher.
In a decisive departure from the sneakers’ Kansas theme, Shimano has given each and every one its personal haiku.
“Twilight,” through Shimano.
If it is your factor, the RX6 variants even have their very own poems — of no matter benefit. (They seem to be confined to Shimano’s press unlock, so I’ll release them right here):
What you’ll’t do, as of this writing, is get any shoe except for the Sunrise in girls’s sizes.
Find all specifications at Shimano’s website online. A couple of Flint Hills Edition RX8’s will set you again $275, and the 2 RX6 variations test in at $180 MSRP. Cleats are bought one at a time.
