Shimano has updated its extremely popular RC9 S-Phyre road shoe range with a new RC902 version, using new materials, construction and closure system which is said to optimise power transfer while improving comfort.

The release doesn't come as a complete surprise - our own eagle-eyed Josh Croxton had already spotted Wout Van Aert sporting a new unreleased pair of Shimano shoes in our back-to-racing tech gallery. Going by Wout Van Aert's recent successes at Strade BiancheMilan-San Remo and Stage 1 of the Critérium du Dauphiné, the new shoes are already proving to be a world-beating pair of kicks. Both Team Jumbo-Visma and Team Sunweb are currently using the RC902 in their 2020 Tour De France campaigns.
