Bontrager Race Road Shoes

Bontrager calls the Race Road Shoes their entry-level model, but there's nothing entry-level about their features. These fine shoes boast carbon-reinforced soles so every watt of your precious power goes into forward motion. And, because power is nothing without comfort, the Races sport Bontrager's ergonomic inForm footbeds, breathable inForm uppers and molded heel cups, too. The three Velcro straps make it easy to find your perfect fit.

      I've had these shoes for about a year. I ride about three times a week. They fight comfortably and I have no complaints. I wear an 11.5 mens running shoe.

      These are the first cycling shoes I've owned. They are really comfortable and well ventilated. I got them for a great price and couldn't be happier!

        Finally broke down and purchased my first pair of biking shoes. These shoes are very light and comfortable. You hardly know you have them on. I like the way air flows thru the shoe when you are moving. The velcro straps make for a snug fit. I've only ridden 2 rides of 40 miles each with them, but so far no complaints

        Comments:

        Long time cyclist with my first good road bike, so I needed pedals and shoes. I'm on a budget so I chose the Road Race shoes. The price does not at all indicate the quality of the shoes. Long ride comfort and stablity aplenty, easy to clip into Look pedals. Not easy to walk in but that is the case with most if not all SPD-SL/Look cleats. Walking is not the point with these pedals, riding is, and at that, the shoes excel.

            Comments:

            I bought these to replace my old mountain biking diadoras (which I loved and often wore all day at work because they were really comfy) and I was worried about going to a new brand, with the new strap (no laces?) and they looked stiff. But, they have become my new favorites. They provide a great snug fit every time, and I now find that I can't get my old shoes tight enough, where these shoes are really snug, and fast to put on and take off. Obviously they are hard to walk in, but I will often walk a few blocks in them, and they are fine. The new "snow board" boot type zip strap works great, and after a year is still perfect. I would never go back to laces after this shoe. I had a lot of questions about this shoes durability, and after having them for a year now I thought I would write a review to tell everyone that they are still almost brand new after a year (about 4,000Kms). Love them.

              Comments:

              The Bontrager Race Road shoes simply do what they're supposed to, do it well, and do it with extreme comfort and grace. I decided to get a new pair of shoes after my Northwave Aerators lost their novel appeal (and the soles were bunching up!), [...] Bontrager has higher level shoes, but I found the benefit-to-cost difference to be an exercise in hair splitting. Unless you counting grams in weight, these shoes are the way to go! They've got all the specs of all the top-end shoes, save full carbon features (though they do have partial carbon/lightweight nylon outsoles--great stiffness and still lightweight--lighter than my Northwaves!). The only thing I can't comment on is the durability, as I've only used them a few times--performance wise, your first trial of a shoe will tell you all you need to know; cycling shoes don't "break in" like running shoes. So I can say that these outperform my top-end Northwaves, hands down. The eSoles insoles are AMAZING--they really set apart these shoes from the outset. I was skeptical about breathability (a major plus with my Northwaves), but I was pleasantly surprised. While they did not feel like the air was running through my toe hair (mmm...), they definitely provided enough breathability for my preferences. They are actually probably the perfect balance for a four-season shoe, if you're not too much of a snob! Comfort overall is unmatched! Anyway, that's my two cents. Buy them; you won't be sorry.
