These un­der­stated of­fer­ings from Bon­trager com­plete the Shut Up Legs ap­parel col­lec­tion, a range de­vel­oped in col­lab­o­ra­tion with charis­matic for­mer Trek rider Jens Voigt.

‘It seemed nat­u­ral for us that when we de­cided to work to­gether we should base the range around his most fa­mous one-liner,’ says Tom Kue­fler, prod­uct man­ager for Bon­trager shoes.

Voigt used chrome XXX shoes in his suc­cess­ful Hour record at­tempt in 2014, and al­though they might look like a nov­elty, their per­for­mance is any­thing but. ‘These shoes are our flag­ship road model and weigh just 220g per shoe. De­spite this, they’re the stiffest we’ve ever built,’ says Kue­fler.

Pro­duc­tion is lim­ited, though, so you’ll need to ride fast to se­cure a pair.
