Vice answers the long-awaited demands of dirt jump and slopestyle riders alike who relish in pedal feel and compliance without conceding durability and protection. Developed with Kyle Strait, Vice features our RC Fuzion outsole- an inverse, gradient diameter hexagon pattern designed to bring the pedal closer to the rider. Sloped-angle inverse hexagons, varying in diameter from 9mm at the toe and heel to 7mm at the pedal contact area, allow the pedal to “inject” into the outsole for unrivaled sensitivity. Knowing your vices brings you closer to your obsession. Accepting them makes you invincible.
We utilize HIGH GRIP exclusively on our RC Fuzion outsole to realize the optimal blend of traction and adjustability. For dirt jump and Slopestyle athletes, this compound is ideal when neither grip nor throwing contest-winning tricks can be compromised.
We partner with D30 to incorporate impact absorbing materials in our insoles and medial collar protection throughout much of our line. This soft, lightweight and flexible material is ideal for footwear – reducing feedback from the trail and harsh impacts through our Zone Technology insoles and adding crank protection in our premium gravity and enduro models.
