The Bontrager Avert “Adventure” Mountain Bike Shoe is a new cycling shoe that looks to offer several bikepacking-friendly features. The clipless-compatible mountain bike shoe is based around a durable, weather resistant, and breathable Cordura and suede upper that is said to be comfortable and suitable for all-day use. The sole uses reverse lugs for added traction and a shock-absorbing EVA midsole that’s easy on the legs. The Avert Shoe uses a simple yet robust lace-up closure, and the slip-on construction is easy to use and ensures the tongue stays put.
Although the Bontrager Avert Mountain Bike Shoes are online now at TrekBikes.com, stock isn’t expected for about two weeks. They will be available in sizes 36-48, and include Bontrager’s 30-day unconditional guarantee, which allows you to return the shoes if you’re not satisfied—no questions asked. The Avert Mountain Bike Shoe comes in Trek Black or Sandstorm and retails for $174.99 USD through your local Bontrager deal or online at TrekBikes.com.
