Back in September of last year we got word that Chrome would be launching a clip-in version of their most popular shoe, the Kursk. Bikerumor put the original through its paces, and awarded the shoe a coveted five thumbs up. Needless to say, we have high hopes for the new version.
The Kursk Pro is mostly the same shoe. However, the 3/4 length nylon 6 plate now runs the full length of the shoe. Chrome has also added an anatomically correct forefoot rocker for added comfort when off the bike.
The launch date has been set for February 22nd, and they will set you back $95.
For the full run down in Chrome’s words, and a refresher on the specs head on past the break.
