Five Ten Freerider VXI -

Five Ten changed the flat pedal game forever when it introduced its Stealth Rubber Impact shoes. Not surprisingly, Five Ten has raised the bar, yet again, with its new Freerider VXi Shoes. To accomplish this, the Freerider VXi combines Five Ten's Stealth high-friction rubber with an all new tread pattern for optimized pedal grip.

For the uppers, Five Ten employed action leather in high-wear areas in order to promote durability. Further along these lines, a brand new sole shape provides extra clearance between the upper and your crank arms, effectively increasing the shoes' longevity. To keep them comfortable, Five Ten applied mesh panels to the toe and side panels. Essentially, this creates a positive airflow through the shoe, keeping your feet cool, dry, and comfortable. And the low profile shape, mid-stiff sole, and slightly narrower fit make the Freerider VXi more versatile than a true downhill-oriented shoe like the Impact.

However, the most notable feature of the Freerider VXi is its new tread pattern. Unlike previous Five Ten soles, which maintain a consistent tread from toe to heel, the Freerider VXi features a flat section under the ball of the foot. And although it looks different, the Stealth Rubber and increased surface area provide the same otherworldly grip that you've come to expect from Five Ten. But, you might be asking, why mess with a good thing? Well, the benefit is that this smooth sole design takes the hassle out of repositioning your feet. If you've ever rode a set of Impacts, you know that once your foot is placed on the pedal, it's there to stay. That characteristic is ideal for security, but it quickly becomes an inconvenience when your foot is in the wrong place on the pedal and you're not able to move it. With the Freerider VXi, the smooth sole underneath your foot makes it easy to find the sweet spot for your feet.

The Five Ten Freerider VXi Shoes are available in half sizes from 3-12, in whole sizes from 13 to 14, and in the colors Grey/charcoal., Five Ten Red, and Pumice/black.

Five Ten Freerider VXI Reviews:


These are great! I have tried other flat pedals shoes 5.10, Teva LINKS, etc., and these are exactly what I am looking for in flat pedal shoes for all mountain riding. The sole is very stiff, almost like a clipless and grip is phenomenal. I have switched to flat pedals/shoes a couple of years ago due to knee issues but always missed the connected feeling clipless had - but no more. They do run a little wide, which is perfect for me since I am a EE. The only thing I would like is maybe Velcro strap to secure the laces, but that is more of a personal preference. These are not comfortable shoes for walking since they are stiff but they are great for what they are designed for. The smooth sole is also a great innovation.

Awesome, I can't say enough. I've been meaning to get a pair of 5.10's for a couple of years, but was always put off by the fairly wide fit throughout their product range. These were rumored to be narrower, and ended up fitting my narrowish feet very well. I haven't tried any other 5.10's, but these run a bit short as well. 11.5's are usually my size, but my toes bumped against the end of the shoe initially. Now that they are broken in , they seem to be just a bit roomier however, with toes no longer bumping.
These are easily as sticky as I need for lift-served and shuttle based gravity riding, and provide great protection and comfort. They pedal well, and are broken in after one day riding Downieville.

I have been looking for a shoe to replace my aging Five Ten Impacts, the Freerider VXi's came to the rescue, it seems that Five Ten (Adidas) put a lot of thought into exactly what today's riders are looking for, for me it is a durable shoe that still maintains feel on the pedal (much more so then I ever had with the impacts), due to the stealth rubber sole it is almost like being clipped in and just happens to be stylish as well...
The fit is not exactly the same as the previous generation of Five Tens, I think it is very close to any other Adidas shoe, I always though Five Ten's previous sizing ran on the small side.

I already loved Five Ten but this shoe turned it into an obsession. The VXI line is all ill ever use for mountain biking from now on! They look great, feel great, and most importantly, stick to my pedals like glue. What else do I really need?

They took the stiffness of the Impact and the smoothness of the Freeride shoe. To me the Impacts were bulky and heavy. The old Freeriders were nice but the sole was too flexible and they fell apart. Now they have the perfect balance.

This is a great mountain biking shoe. It sticks to my flats and I haven't had a problem with any foot slippage. I cycled all over Moab wearing these and felt secure and comfortable through the technical terrain.

i have bad feet with low arch. I put a pair of off the shelf arch supports and my feet never feel any pain. These shoes are awesome!!

Matthew Hill at on 08/25/2013
Great shoe overall. However, I really need a 12.5 and half sizes are not offered after a 12. Please offer half sizes for larger feet!
