I have been riding the 04 Zeus for a few years now and love them, but they are starting to get pretty worn. I was looking at replacing them and have an opportunity to pick up a pair of 06 Deuce's for a great price, but I tried them on yesterday and noticed the Deuce does not have any kind of strap across the top of the foot/base of the ankle to hold your heel down. No matter how tightly I pulled the laces I felt like I would be getting heel lift while riding, although I have not ridden them yet.

Any comments from those who have ridden the Deuce? Do they hold your heel down?

Thanks.

The 06/07 Zeus or Faction will have great heel hold.
06 Deuce should be pretty good, but 07's are much better.

yeah, i figured the new zeus would be the ideal choice, too bad i don't have a hook up for them. i guess you get what you pay for.

thanks for the advice

The 2007 is almost identical to the '04 Zeus. It has the ankle strap and the cut/flex is very similar. I noticed when I first got mine they had a little heel lift but once they got broken in they held my foot down solid. That & I stuff a wide size 8 into Smalls. Check the new Deuce they are incredible, inexpensive & simple.
