Quov have released two new shoes in their growing range of road and gravel footwear.

Their new road offering, the M3 Air has already been spotted on the feet of former Tour winner Geraint Thomas and joins the brand's top tier of road shoes.

Retailing at £320, Quoc say it is "the product of over a decade of research and discovery in performance and innovation" and designed with feedback from leding competitve cyclists.

Quoc have built the shoe around a new last, which they say "matches the comfort and natural fit of the Mono II while adding increased support at the ball of the foot and space in the toe box to eliminate pressure."

The M3 Air features a two-piece upper built from a lightweight TPU that moulds to fit the shape of your foot. It's fitted with mesh panels for maximum aeration in hot or high-intensity conditions, with dual-dial closure lace guides and an upgraded wrap design which Quoc say improves fit and increases stability.

As you might expect of a race-oriented shoe, the sole is 100% carbon fibre with stiffness designed to maximise power transfer.

The shoes weigh in at a feathery 232g (EU42, one shoe) and come in sizes from EU38-47.

Each pair comes with three customisable arch inserts to help dial in your fit, and they are 3-bolt road cleat compatible (Look/Speedplay).

Gran Tour XC Lace

Gravel cyclists and bikepackers, meanwhile, are also catered for with Quoc unveiling a lace-up version of their bestselling Gran Tour XC shoe.

The Gran Tour XC Lace is ""built for adventure-seekers who prefer a classic style (and) the tension adjustment and failhard dependability of a lace system" say Quoc.

As with the dial version, the shoe combines an airy, carbon composite outsole with an integrated TPU tread to deliver stiffness and efficiency, while the toe cap and rubber border offers additional durability for all-terrain riders.

All-day rides put high demands on shoes, and feet - Qupc have fitted the GTXC with padded heel cushioning and foot-moulding insoles, along with a choice of three arch inserts, to keep your feet happy on the longest and toughest adventures.

As with the Escape we reviewed recently, the GTXC have replaceable toe studs to aid traction when hike-a-biking. The fully recessed cleats are MTB/SPD compatible, and claimed weight is 320g per shoe (size EU42).

RRP is £220.
