Bontrager Race DLX Road shoes review

Sneaking under £100 by a single penny, these Bontrager Race DLX Road shoes are a very impressive package.

With a price pushing hard against the £100 mark, the Bontrager Race DLX Road shoes turned out to be some of the most comfortable that I’ve ridden from this sector of the market.

The shoes feature Bontrager’s inForm Race footbed which provides plenty of support, while there’s still plenty of wiggle room to prevent your feet going to sleep on longer rides.
