After so many years riding Five Ten shoes ourselves, we could not be happier to partner with the benchmark MTB shoe. From the technical steeps of Morzine with its roots, berms and jumps to the rocky gnar of Finale Ligure and high alpine peaks of Aosta we've been putting these shoes to the test and now you can too. We'll be offering Five Ten impact pros for demo and hire in all Riders Weeks locations across Europe.

Five Ten was born in 1985 when Charles Cole creates the first Five Ten shoes the Five Tennie, this was a sweet looking sticky rubber sneaker. In 1986 Five Ten started to sell it’s sticky rubber to other much better known climbing shoe companies for them to use on their own shoes, professional athletes were soon re rubbering their shoes with sneaky sticky Five Ten rubber.

From old school to new school

In 2000 the first MTB specific Five Ten shoe is made for the Intense Cycles team, worn by the legends Sam Hill, Nathan Rennie and Chris Kovarik. Watch any Earthed movie from the mid 2000's and you'll notice that's it's these guys that look the wildest on the bike, yet totally in control.

In 2002 Sam Hill got his hands on his first pair of flat Five Ten and immediately goes out to win the Junior World Champs, Chris Kovarik also demolished the field at the first race of the MTB World Cup that year, by 14 seconds, on flat pedals with Five Ten shoes. This is still the biggest winning margin in any World Cup downhill final.

When Nathan Rennie won the World Cup overall in Five Ten flats with stealth rubber, it was obvious this was the only shoe worth riding. The rest of the podium was also full of stealth rubber, these bad boys worked. In 2006 Sam Hill won the UCI Downhill World Champs and overall, the first rider every to do both in one season.

The story just continues for Five Ten with the likes of Danny MacAskill releasing the “way back home” edit which has had 35million views and counting, Sam Hill winning the World Chaps again in 2010, Greg Minnaar winning in 2012, Brand of the Brave being created, and so on and on. 

If there was ever a mountain bike shoe company you would want to partner with it’s Five Ten and that's exactly what we have done. When riding bikes out in Morzine & Finale Ligure your shoes need to be tough, grippy as hell and solid, Five Ten provides this with their impact shoe in every way.

Finale Outdoor Region has been going from strength to strength in the last few years since it's step up from a volunteer run guide for the community, to a fully fledged organisation with backing from the town, the hotels, bars, restaurants and shuttle companies. It's been a huge task and at times it seems like it's been difficult to bring eveyone's ideas of what Finale Ligure is or should be, together under a united concept.

The lifts have stopped turning in Morzine and though the locals will be out on the pedals, the sweet sound of tyres slapping berms is all but done until the lifts re-open for summer 2022. This year we faced more than just covid, the weather made most of June and July tricky with heavy rainfalls, though luckily for future summers, we don not see conditions like that often so the weather Gods should have had their fun with morzine for the next few y
