It's Tourer Tuesday! Let's take an in-depth look at one of our original models, the Tourer.
The Tourer was the second addition to the QUOC collection, released in 2010, specifically created for today's multi-faceted cyclists. It was designed similarly to the Fixed, retaining the elegant leather uppers and the contoured insole. The insole was especially designed by Quoc to be sculpted to the curve of the foot, to provide sumptuous comfort while cycling and walking. In addition to the curvature of the insole, the Tourer shoe offers recessed, fully integrated MTB pedal system compatibility.
In contrast to the flat sole of the Fixed, the Tourer’s ridged rubber sole provides the necessary grip required for cyclists that wish to go the extra mile. The rubber sole elevates the shoe so that the MTB cleat does not inhibit walking, allowing a smooth transition from the bike to walking on the sidewalk without having to change shoes.
The upper of the Tourer benefits from a precise three layer construction, with a natural bovine leather outer and leather lining separated by a reinforced mesh interior. The inner layer provides additional form and stiffness to the shoe. The Tourer is finished off with Quoc's signature reflective strip along the heel that provides an added layer of style and safety.
