Winner of our Top Pick for Enduro Racers, the Specialized 2FO Cliplite is an enduro and all-mountain trail shoe with performance and features that nearly all riders will appreciate. The 2FO Cliplite is well suited for its intended purpose of enduro and all-mountain riding while also meeting the demands of gravity oriented riders and XC trail riders tackling adventurous backcountry terrain. The unique look and design highlights the comfort, protection and walkability, but belies the lightweight and impressive power transfer this shoe has to offer. Like other similar shoes, the 2FO Cliplite features a stiff nylon shank that provides a solid platform for transfer of power underfoot, while still providing flex of the sole forward under the toes to make walking during those inevitable dismounts and hike-a-bikes much more tolerable. The 2FO Cliplite is comparable to other shoes in this test like the Giro Terraduro, the Shimano ME7, and the Five Ten Hellcat Pro. Cross-country racers will probably look elsewhere, but the 2FO Cliplite will suit riders of a variety of disciplines with excellent performance and features at a competitive price.
Specialized redesigned the 2FO Cliplite slightly for 2018. Find out more below.
