Only a few years after Teva entered the bike market with the introduction of the Links freeride mountain bike shoe, the company announced this week that they are now exiting the market. The brand was famous for saying that bike was not only a category of footwear, but a passion. Not so much anymore.

Although a large majority of mountain bike trails in Marin are fire roads, there are some incredibly steep and more technical sections. Even after my Trek Dirt Series adventure last summer, I still have to get off the bike and walk occasionally. In my standard clipless mountain bike shoes, walking was a bit of a chore, but I have found the best of both worlds in the Teva Pivot.
With the Action Sports market one of the fastest growing segments of the Outdoor Industry, Teva is looking to capture a bigger slice of the pie. The company originally dabbled in skate inspired styles with the Gnarkosi water shoe and Links freeride mountain biking shoe released the summer of 2011. Now for 2013, Teva has a full bike collection featuring 9 different styles, including the company's first shoe for those clipless lovers out there.
