After so many years riding Fiveten shoes ourselves, we could not be happier to announce them as a new partner for 2018 and beyond. Fiveten are hands down the benchmark shoes for riding mountain bikes anywhere in the world let alone the technical tracks that Morzine presents with its steeps, roots and flat-out tracks. Having recently been bought by Adidas these shoes will only get better with the expertise of the leading sports trainer manufacturer.

Fiveten was born in 1985 when Charles Cole creates the first Fiveten shoes the Five Tennie, this was a sweet looking sticky rubber sneaker. In 1986 Fiveten 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 Fiveten rubber.

From old school to new school

In 2000 the first MTB specific Fiveten shoe is made for the Intense Cycles team including the legends that are Sam Hill, Nathan Rennie and Chris Kovarik. Well we all know how fast those legends of the mountain bike industry are so let’s get me some Fivetens now…

In 2002 Sam Hill got his hands on his first pair of flat Fiveten and immediately goes out to win the Junior World Champs, there is a new boy in town and he's riding flats. Chris Kovarik also demolished the field at the first race of the MTB World Cup that year on Fiveten flats

Fiveten really came into their own in 2003 when Nathan Rennie won the Wolrd Cup overall in Fiveten flats with stealth rubber, 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 in 2007 the popular TV show Modern Marvels hails Fiveten’s innovation along the same lines as Duct Tape.

The story just continues for Fiveten with the likes of Danny MacAskill releasing the “way back home” edit which has had 35million views and counting, Sam Hill winning the Wold 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 Fiveten 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, Fiveten provides this with their impact shoe in every way.

What is Morzine like right now?For the most part, like any other year! Just add masks, sanitiser, signage and a dash of social responsibility. Wash your hands regularly, use the sanisters provided. The trails are running prime, the extra efforts of the shapers across resorts this year is noticeable and the weather has been peachy after a rainy June, the rest of summer 2020 is looking good!

The Avoriaz MTB Team have been putting in the hard yards for over a decade, the slopes of Super Morzine have become a mecca for park rats, DH shredders and families alike with their well built and thoughtful approach to trail design that is rad where it needs to be, safe where it should be and offers features and trails to suit beginners all the way up to seasoned pro's.

Aosta, the focal point of the vast, stunning mountain scape that makes up the Aosta Valley. It's not only a beautiful landscape, it's a stunning city filled with culture, great food, good people, cool bars, Roman ruins and the hustle and bustle of a cosmopolitan city. It's a large city that's geographically quite spread out, with several different lieu-dits or suburbs. But the actual town centre itself is small, walked in under 15 minutes and all sprawling off the same cobbled streets that was the centre of this Roman gateway town centuries ago.
