Love these

By Ollie

from Andover, MA

About Me Avid Cyclist

Pros

  • Comfortable Tongue
  • Great Buckle System
  • Stiff Sole
  • Good Fit

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Commuter shoes
    • Everyday riding
    • Long-distance riding

    Comments:

    I have two pairs of these since I like these so much, and most bike shoe companies seem to be moving away from buckle systems like this in favor of BOA systems. I find these traditional buckles much more comfortable than the BOAs, which put pressure in the wrong places and dig in. I also like the thin tongue on these shoes, that is very comfortable. Good stiff sole provides lots of power.

    Great Quality Shoes

    By Ron

    from Washington, DC

    About Me Casual/ Recreational

    Pros

    • Well Ventilated
    • Simple to Use
    • Durable Sole

    Cons

    • Hard to Walk In

    Best Uses

    • Long-distance riding
    • Climbing
    • Sprinting

    Comments:

    I loved them from the first time I tried them on and enjoyed riding with them. Like any road shoes with stiff soles, you need to be careful when walking on smooth surfaces. However, for the price Bontrager should've made them adaptable for SPD cleats. There are 'similar' lower-end models with both options to use Look/SPD-SL or SPD cleats that cost less. Overall, great shoes that I'm sure will last me a long time.

      This shoe is very well built for the money. Excellent carbon sole, stylish leather upper, insert and bed is one of the best I have seen.
