I have a road bike with MTB shoes & pedals for the last 5 years. I’ve heard people in the past suggest that road shoes allow you to more efficiently transfer power through the pedals & thus have a higher FTP or lower calorie burn for the same amount of power with road shoes vs MTB shoes.
I’m curious if there is any data out there or even anecdotal stories on the power differences between road & MTB shoes?
Power aside, can road shoes offer more comfort or better heat loss?
Cheers guys & thanks in advance,
