Another Swiss brand, Suplest is a small company you’ll likely start to see more of. The fresh top-tier Edge/3 packs an extremely long list of features for a pair of carbon 556g-road race shoes (EU42.5).
The microfibre upper reminds us of the Shimano R321 shoes’ ‘Surround’ upper. The one-piece design on the inside promotes the upper being pulled over the foot for greater support, while the outer part of the upper wraps underneath, continuing on to double as the shoe’s tongue.
Carbon reinforcing sits on the ‘wrap-in’ upper for better load distribution of the boa wires: carbon reinforcing sits on the ‘wrap-in’ upper for better load distribution of the boa wires.
Hailing from Bern, Switzerland, Suplest is known mostly for its high-end road shoes, however the small brand also has a few off-road kicks, including the X1 Pro Trail shoes.
A far cry from the brand's uber stiff Edge3 Pro range of kicks, the X1 Pro Trail shoesare less about laying down watts, and more about finding the balance between on bike and walking performance and comfort.
