The new Bontrager shoe features a durable, synthetic leather upper. The inForm Race last offers a slightly roomier fit.
A lace closure system, with an elastic lace keeper, provides adjustability and allows replacements, if needed.
The nylon composite sole rates 6 of 14, on Bontrager’s flex/stiffness scale, so we expect some stiffness, but also walkability. The rubber outsole is 2-bolt SBD-compatible.
GnarGuard, Bontrager’s rubberized coating on the toe and heel, protects against abrasions and debris.
The new Bontrager GR2 Gravel Shoe ($139.99) is now available online at trekbikes.com and through Trek retailers.
