Shoemaker Suplest completely revamps their Trail mountain bike shoe line-up with two simplified Performance and Sport models. Both share the same rugged upper and hike-a-bike-able sole, so you get to pick either BOA+velcro adjustability or classic laces depending on your preference or budget…

The Suplest Trail family of clipless mountain bike shoes has gone back and forth over the years trying to find a balance between the high-end performance of their top road and XC shoes, toying with several different closure solutions. Now, an all-new Trail Performance & Sport pairing makes it a simple decision. Pick Boa fine-tuning and a secure velcro strap for a more performance-focused fit. Or stick with good old laces for a more sporty approach and classic looks that transition off the bike.

The new Suplest Trail clipless mountain bike shoes are manufactured in Taiwan, something we see more for bikes and components than shoes or apparel. Suplest claims they may be the only international cycling shoe brand producing their shoes there, explaining “We chose Taiwan for its precision in shoe craftsmanship and to live up to our Swiss quality standards.

Either option you pick – Performance or Sport – you get a durable synthetic single-layer woven mesh upper with bonded TPU reinforcements. There are raised wrap-around heel protection and a full wrap-over toe bumper to keep trail obstacles at bay.

The outsole features Suplest’s own grippy SUPtraction rubber in a zig-zagging pattern. Meant to offer more stability and grip along the outer edges – with a more solid platform under your pedal. Plus, a conventional nylon reinforcement inside offers just enough pedaling support, while retaining walkability off the bike.

These look pretty nice, although it would have been nice if they had switched to the longer and/or more rearward positioned cleat slots that many of the shoe companies have switched to (particularly on their non XC racing focused models).

Still, for people who prefer a more forward mounted traditional cleat position, these look like they should work pretty well.
