The Specialized 2FO Cliplite Lace is the lace up version of the award-winning 2FO Cliplite clipless mountain bike shoe. This shoe provides the same award-winning performance but with a simple shoelace closure in a slightly lighter weight package for $60 less than its Boa clad sibling. In fact, this shoe's outstanding all-around performance and low price earned it our coveted Best Buy Award. Testers were impressed with the Cliplite Lace's power transfer. It has a nylon composite shank that provides a solid pedaling platform from the cleat mount area to the heel. Flex through the toe and a full-coverage grippy rubber outsole aid in walkability and off-the-bike traction. This shoe is also very comfortable, with a Body Geometry footbed and comfortable and secure lace-up closure system. We were impressed with the fit, performance, and price of the 2FO Cliplite Lace and we think you will be too.
The 2FO ClipLite Lace now comes in murdered out black, as shown above, or multi-tonal grey and hyper green. All other aspects of the shoe are identical to the version we tested.
