Bontrager GR2: A dedicated gravel shoe that tackles all terrain types
Bontrager's GR2 is a gravel bike shoe that works well for long adventures on the bike. Gravel-specific shoes require the snug fit and efficiency of road bike shoes and off-bike walkability of MTB shoes. This is the idea behind the GR2's construction and design.
What is it for? With the shoe's durable upper, versatile design, walkable yet adequately stiff soles, and grippy lugs, it performs excellently for the following activities:
- Endurance race
- Mountain cycling
- Urban commutes
Highlights of the Bontrager GR2
- Lace closure for that retro, casual look, and lace tuck that keeps the laces from getting caught in the drivetrain.
- GnarGuard rubberized coating on the toe and heel areas provide added durability and protects against bumps and impacts.
- The brand's inForm Race last is designed to provide a slightly roomier fit than traditional cycling shoes.
- The shoe's nylon composite sole has a stiffness index of 6 out of 14 to yield a stiff-yet-walkable performance.
