The A1 youth: the shoe that grows with a young cyclist's foot: The A1 youth cycling shoe adapts its length and shape to fit your child's growing feet, offering a fit that comfortably and firmly holds your youth's growing foot.
Available in one grow-along size, this series of shoes comfortably accommodates shoe sizes from approximately 32.5 - 38. This equates to feet of about 200 - 235mm long, making the shoe an option for many children from as young as 7 years old.
Once your young rider has grown out of the youth size they can graduate into Adult A1 sizing - and continue to benefit from upsizing your shoe size to extend the service life of the shoe through (up to max 3 sizes). This ensures your investment lasts more seasons than a classic pair of single-size shoes would.
The 5 things you need to know about A1 shoes:
- They grow from size ~ 33 to ~38: thanks to their patented length-adjusting heel.
- They're simple: One minimalist dial offers a solid, ever-adapting fit.
- They're superior to most youth shoes, featuring a ratchet dial closure mechanism, and even a road carbon sole option.
- They're smart: One pair of A1 shoes will accommodate up to 30mm foot growth, ensuring a quality fit for much longer than any other shoe.
They're affordable: lasting at least as long as 3 sizes of classic-sized shoes.
