What Other Talking About Bontrager GR2

Bontrager GR2 Review

I decided to return to clip-less pedals after taking a break for a couple of years and riding on flats. I was looking for a competitor’s shoe in my size but could not find it in stock. I read and watched several reviews of these shoes and decided to order a pair from my local Trek/Bontrager shop. I love them. I came from riding FiveTen Freeriders. These shoes have a wide footbed so I was immediately impressed. They seem to run a bit small and I needed what I thought would be a US 12 (I typically wear a US 11).The “yellow” is not yellow and they are only getting more comfortable. Bontrager/Trek’s shop customer service is the best I’ve experienced. These may be the most comfortable clip-less shoe I’ve ever worn.

Gravel shoes are XC shoes in my mind and Bontrager’s GR2 gravel shoe is one of the better-looking lace-ups I’ve seen lately. Laces allow for a little more fine-tuning in the fit department, and for an all-day XC romp that’s always welcome. The upper is synthetic and the sole is a nylon composite that is made to be stiff when pedaling yet still retain some walkability. The shoes measure a 6 on Bontrager’s stiffness scale, which goes up to 14.

The toe and heel have Bontrager’s “GnarGuard” rubberized coating to protect feet from flying rocks and the tread is a Tachyon rubber that should have some grip even on rough terrain and slippery surfaces, according to Bontrager.

Comfort for an all day excursion, the shoes have superb style and the laces help with comfort for an all day excursion in the wood.
