Ride Concepts Hellion Elite MTB Shoes

In this Ride Concepts Hellion Elite MTB shoe review, we take a close look at the flat pedal trainers and test them for comfort, grip, durability, and riding performance.

The Hellion Elite MTB shoes are a premium performance mountain bike trainer that features a soft rubber compound which RC calls the DST 4.0 Max Grip. This soft rubber sole is intended to offer the most sensitivity and grip whilst riding flat pedals regardless of the conditions.

The upper portion of the shoes is made from a durable microfibre with an anti-bacterial mesh lining to increase breathability and reduce odor.

Ride Concepts Hellion Elite Review

First things first. These are potentially the most comfortable MTB shoes I’ve worn to date. The D3O sole shapes around your foot and absorbs harsh impacts. The super-soft grippy soles are incredibly grippy making these flat pedals feel locked onto the pedal giving you the confidence that you get from riding clipless shoes.

I’ve been using the Helion Elite mountain bike shoes from Ride Concepts for around a month now and they are now my go-to shoe for riding. They have seen some punishment from riding all sorts of conditions from mud to rain storms, hot sunny days, and rocky and dusty trails. These shoes have seen it all and the best bit is apart from a few scuffs here and there they still look pretty new!

I can’t find a single thing to complain about when it comes to these trainers.
