Bontrager had a very strong presence at the Sea Otter Classic this year and they are definitely making concerted efforts to get the word out about their new tires, saddles, shoes, helmets and other parts and gear. In fact, Bontrager is currently running a contest on Mtbr right now, so check out the Bontrager Swag Giveaway here>>
Bontrager has really stepped up their game in the tire business, both for mountain bikes and road bikes. We recently tested and reviewed their new XR-4 and 29-4 tires, read what Mtbr thought about them here>> One of the things that Bontrager is empasizing in their tire line-up, is that they offer tires for varying types of riding and terrain and that the rider needs to use that as a guideline for which compound tire they will want to choose.
Bontrager has also made some updates to it’s top of the line RXL mountain bike shoe. Available in black or white, the RXL retails for $274.99 From the manufacturer:
“Bontrager’s RXL MTB is the ultimate XC race shoe, featuring a lightweight, ergonomically optimized design, customizable fit, and ultra-efficient Silver Series Carbon sole. Packed with fit-tune details like a heat-moldable inForm custom footbed, a multi-position medial adjuster to dial-in top pad placement, a Micro-Fit buckle for quick and precise tension adjustment on the fly, and a rider-adjustable Heel Trap to lock and stabilize the heel, the RXL MTB shoe makes it easy to achieve a personalized, custom fit that will keep you comfortably ahead of the competition.”
