Specialized 2FO ClipLite shoes stay secure and comfy on long rides BikeRadar verdict
"The ClipLites balance DH features with XC efficiency in a good-looking package that’s comfy on long rides" Lows: May not suit you if your feet are on the wide side, don’t keep much water outBuy if: You’re after a great all-rounder pair of trail shoes that’ll take the ups and downs in their stride The 2FO ClipLites are Specialized’s ‘hybrid’ trail riding/enduro racing shoes, designed to balance cross-country style pedalling efficiency with the flexible, feedback – rich feel needed for downhill riding.
Just like on Spesh’s top-tier XC footwear, twin indexed Boa dials and a single Velcro strap keep them secure, with almost perfect tension across the top of the foot. Because the S2-Snap dials don’t feature the ‘pop up to loosen off’ mechanism of some Boa designs (which does slow the removal process a little, because they need to be unwound), there’s no chance of accidently knocking one and it loosening off on the trail.
