Bontrager Evoke MTB Shoes

4/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $100.00

Product Description

The Evoke MTB shoe is tough, secure and stiff enough for solid power transfer with enough flex for hike-a-bike sections. Simple, minimal strap closures keep your the weight (and your heels) down and Tachyon rubber lugs stick to rocks and roots.

Strengths:    Fit and Comfort
Key areas reinforced

Weaknesses:    Ventilation

Bottom Line:   
I bought these to replace a pair of older Pearl Izumi X-Alp Enduros that were showing signs of fatigue. So far they're very comfortable and relatively easy to walk in (the sole is thicker by the cleat and tapers toward the toe, so they are probably not truely "hike and bike" shoes). They fit true to size, provide good support and work well with my eggbeaters (with or without winter over boots). They don't appear to be as well ventilated as the X-Alps and we'll see if that presents a problem this summer. On the plus side, they appear to be reinforced every place you could damage them (toe, heal, arch of the foot...). They might make a reasonable shoe for Cross or MTB racing (mounting points for cleats are present) although I like my Sidi pre-diablo high tops for pure race shoes (due to the ankle protection).
