DZR Shoes just dropped some limited edition S240 LTD boots, saying they’re built for bikepacking. The clipless riding shoes take their name from Grant Peterson’s sub 24 hour overnighter camping by bike concept – bikepacking before it was cool. What makes them bikepacking specific?
DZR S24O LTD bikepacking ready clipless cycling shoes
Bikepacking is surely growing in popularity, but much like we wondered what a gravel-specific shoe was, these brought the same questions to mind. Well, in reality the S24O LTD isn’t actually bikepacking-specific, but they probably would make a decent shoe for a mix of pedaling and tooling around camp.
But the S24O edition mixes a classic work boot look, a flannel lining, and the same tech features that already make the LTD a good on & off the bike shoe. They have a natural gum rubber sole, with a chain-link tread pattern for good grip on a range of surfaces. Then a recessed cleat pocket makes them work with SPD (and Crankbrothers) pedals, keeping the cleats from touching the ground when off the bike, and with a full-length nylon shank that balance good efficiency while pedaling with walkability.
The upper is made from a tough, lightweight leather and uses boot style lacing for the mid-height cuff. Reflective details on the heel add a touch of extra visibility.
The S24O LTD boots are available now from DZR for $149, but in limited numbers. Only sizes 43-46 seem to be available already, so act fast.
