Ah righto. It came up in a list of women’s mtb.Pretty sure the Pivot Les is not a women's specific frame, it is a hardtail.
I think the name is a play on words: pivotless i.e. no rear suspension.
EDIT: back on topic. I only ever had issues with my feet when using shoes that weren't stiff enough...
Back on topic. I’ve got some basic Freeriders with really soft soles. I get discomfort if I ride in those but am fine in the much stiffer but still flexible Northwave shoes.
