Building upon the growing success of their cycling shoe line, Bontrager has just announced a new model of Men’s road riding shoe called the Velocis. With a wide selection of road shoes ranging from $80-400, the Velocis fits roughly in the middle of Bontrager’s lineup as a price-competitive model with some nice features.

The Velocis was designed to provide the main things roadies generally desire in a shoe- light weight, a stiff sole and good ventilation. It also features a Boa system IP1 dial for quick and easy fit adjustments with no loose laces dangling around. Step below the break for more photos and details…

The Velocis shoe uses Bontrager’s InForm Pro Last fit technology to provide an ergonomic, high-performance fit. The shoe is built upon Bontrager’s Silver Series carbon/fibreglass composite sole, which has a stiffness index of 10 (out of 14) to ensure efficient power transfer to your pedals. Like all of Bontrager’s shoes (and other brands as well), The Velocis can be upgraded with their inForm heat-moldable footbeds to achieve a comfortable custom fit.

Above the sole, the Velocis is constructed from synthetic uppers with reinforced toe and heel areas. They employ the Boa closure dial for the main lacing, a Velcro strap for a snug fit around the ball of your foot, and plenty of vents. The shoe features Lightning Mesh panels on both sides around your arches, a ventilated tongue and top vents in the toe box to keep the air flowing and your feet from getting swampy.

The Velocis shoe is available in black, white, or pink/black online and at Trek dealers nationwide. Sizes and color choices vary a bit- In black the shoe comes in regular or wide US sizes from 7-14.5, the white version comes in regular sizes from 7-14.5 and the pink/black is available from sizes 4-14. The Velocis shoe’s MSRP is $219.99 USD, but individual dealer pricing may vary.

Another wonderful reasonably priced shoe that offers a wide version……. in black only? What is a guy with wide feet (who likes white shoes) to do?

So they made a previous generation S-Works road shoe?

Which is arguably a good thing, since S-Works shoes kick ass.

So who makes a moderately priced cycling shoe like these for a men’s narrow foot?

I’ve always worn Sidi shoes and have always been happy with them. The last pair lasted 8 years, but they finally gave up the ghost and I decided I needed some new shoes. The shop did not have my size and I planned to order online, but they mention that I should try the Bontrager RL road shoes, but I was skeptical. Bontrager has the 30 day guaranty, so I thought why not.

I must say, I was proven wrong and was not given bad advise and saved a pretty penny on top of it.

@PedagogBob, Bontrager usually run quite wide but these ones do not. When we got them in I tried them on and they fit tight and I don’t usually run wide shoes at all. It is a bummer that only black is available in wide.. I was really hoping to rock the pink and black.
