I reviewed the Five Ten Maltese Falcon last year, and loved the all-around comfort, protection and sticky rubber soles of the shoe. I first saw the new and improved Maltese Falcon LT Clipless at the 2013 Interbike show, and during my test period, I have been mightily impressed with this upgraded beast.
The new Maltese Falcon carries on the previous incarnation’s traditions, including durability, toughness, comfort, clipless compatibility, along with the always sticky Stealth S1 rubber soles. It’s now lighter, stiffer, has a waterproof toe cap, and two Velcro straps to cover the laces and to prevent errant water and debris from creeping into the shoe. It comes in the sizes of 6-12 (whole & half) and 13, in the Mono Grey and Red color scheme, and retails for $140.
