The dual-dial upgrade makes for an entirely hotspot free experience. Delivering next-level custom tailoring and micro-accurate precision, it remains incredibly easy to adjust on the fly and get on and off on technical sections. The combination of the shoe’s featherlight, carbon composite outsole with an integrated TPU tread delivers superb stiffness and efficiency, while the addition of a rubber toe cap offers additional durability and protection for the die-hard, all-terrain rider.
Carrying over the Gran Tourer’s optimised, padded heel cushioning and foot-moulding insoles while adding a choice of three arch inserts, the new shoe provides the highest possible level of comfort and support. Also carried over from earlier models is the high quality, abrasion resistant microfibre, finished in a choice of traditional and unique collection colours each featuring a continuation of QUOC’s signature colour border.
The XC was conceived to continue the Gran Tourer’s legacy in industry-leading comfort while adding a layer of performance, durability and quality that sits comfortably at the premium of our gravel range. Appealing to a wider range of highly adventurous, perfection-seeking off-roaders, the shoe is as appealing to those looking to graduate from there original GT’s as it is for new costumers looking for the best all-terrain shoes on the market.

For the mountain biker or endurance gravel racer who rides faster to go further, GT XC is for those who love to push their limits on challenging terrain. With a dedication to trail riding that leaves no level of technicality unexplored, this outdoor adventurer invests in equipment that’s designed to tough it out with them (both on and off the bike), whether jumping over the fence to avoid oncoming cattle, or hiking across a creek on a missed turn.
Our stiffness index is here to help you find your perfect shoe. For each shoe, we have developed what we feel is the perfect balance between comfort and performance for its intended terrain.
Finding the perfect size
We recommend measuring both of your feet from your heel to your longest toe. Take the longest measurement, add 5mm (0.2 inches) and then compare this measurement to our size chart. Alternatively, customers are advised to opt for their nearest EU size, rounding up if they measure an exact half-size. If you have ridden with QUOC shoes in the past, we rounded our half sizes up to whole sizes i.e a EU43.5 is now a EU44.
Worked from a hand-sculpted last that combines years of incremental improvement and adjustment, the shoe features a foot-enveloping lining and a medium-fit toe box making it highly adapted to the average rider.
One year Limited Warranty. For manufacturing faults, QUOC will replace the product free of charge to the customer. Customers will be advised to contact customer service at email@example.com and asked to provide proof of purchase, photos and a description of the damages. We will then evaluate the claim and assist with the replacement.
Dial Closure System Lifetime Warranty: This product contains a QUOC Technology Dial System which is subject to a lifetime warranty. QUOC will replace any Dial System that does not fulfil the lifetime warranty (except in cases of misuse or improper care).
This product is crafted in a combination of high-quality microfibre and a combination carbon fibre/TPU tread. For maximum longevity, we recommend cleaning thoroughly after use with cold water using a pressure hose or clean cloth. When not riding, store in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight.
Born in London. Founded in 2009, QUOC is an independent, British brand with a 12-year history designing high-performance, comfort-driven shoes. Challenging conventional parameters of cycling footwear, we spent a decade hand-crafting our last; refining every last millimetre to arrive at a near-personalised fit for each and every rider.
Contentment in Simplicity
We know that cycling can unlock a host of mental and physical benefits that are unique to every rider. What is universal is that cycling facilitates a return to simplicity in which we can find contentment. That’s why we make shoes that entirely remove obstructions, driven by a desire to simplify the ride and spread the enjoyment of cycling to as many people as possible.
Strong Values Are As Important As Strong Legs
We offer today’s rider a choice outside of mainstream parameters. We speak to those who seek comfort, style, and values in their apparel preferences, in addition to pack-leading performance. A big part of cycling is building human connections, so we offer a highly personal service to our community, and work with organisations like Trash Free Trails to clean up the lands we ride on.
True Heroes of Cycling
We believe in celebrating everyone, not just those winning medals. We look up to those who ride in their own style, whose dedication to cycling transcends their gear and ranking, and who manifest the adventurous spirit and genuine camaraderie that has come to define our sport. We’re proud to be part of an incredible community who inspire us to make shoes for every type of cyclist.
Love Where You Ride
We believe in protecting our ride environments so that future generations of cyclists can experience it. We package our products with eco-friendly materials, and are committed to using resources minimally and replenishing what we use. QUOC works with Tree Nation to plant a tree for each pair of shoes sold, doing our part in the global effort to fight climate change.
