We Didn't Like

No reflectivity on the shoe.

The Final Say

Bontranger and Trek have put together a high end shoe that checks all of the performance and comfort boxes that one would expect from a top of the line shoe. There are lots of great features that this shoe has and cyclocross is really hard on shoes. One of my favorites is that the front of the shoe is reinforced with Bontranger’s GnargGuard protection. The GnardGuard will ensure that the shoe stays together for more multiple mountain and cyclocross seasons. The super stiff sole also ensures that all the power that you put down into the pedals will go into you going forward.
