BONTRAGER BALLISTA KNIT
After their successful attempt at improving comfort by placing a Boa dial on the heel and removing pressure from the tongue, Bontrager’s latest addition to the Ballista line features a knitted upper material. The knit is treated to be water repellant but a pair of shoe covers specifically designed to fit the rear dial are included with purchase. Available in sizes 36-48, the Ballista knit can accommodate 3-bolt-pattern cleats.
The rear facing dial not only gives the shoe a clean front end, but has aerodynamic benefits as well. With dials out of the wind we’d assume there’s a few marginal gains that can be claimed from the crew at Bontrager.
