Chrome Totes New Urban Clipless Shoe for Spring, the Truk Pro
Just released, the Truk Pro is Chrome’s newest recessed SPD shoe. A fresh take on their Truk model (a stiff shoe but lacking the SPD), the Truk Pro gets all the clipless tech and is designed for on and off the bike use too. Previewing this line back at Interbike, we’re excited to see its release.
Chrome built a bunch of flex into the toe area for easy walking while keeping a stiff sole for mashing. To do this they used what they call FlexPlate Technology, basically an impact resistant polyurethane sole overlaying a bendy nylon shank. Fabric for the upper is a 1000 denier Cordura, same as their bags, and a grippy outsole is vulcanized for durability. They’re available in two colors, black and grey (grey shown after the break) and you can pick up a pair for $95 over at Chrome.
