It has to be said that everyone liked the styling of the El Moros straight away, and this was backed up with superb performance. Plenty of padding around the ankle and on the tongue gives an instant, warm feeling of comfort and protection, and while this could take a while to dry, it has its place on long, cool rides. A tough toebox with abrasion-resistant panels on the sides provides protection from rocks and flying debris. Built to last, these should provide some good long-term service, and while a bit on the heavy side they get that from the superb build quality and protection, so we aren’t complaining. Slightly on the narrow side, so try before you buy.
