Specialized's Rime Expert blends protection, great fit, and confidence-inspiring Vibram soles worthy of trekking the Alps or hitting your local trails. Just the right amount of stiffness is built in for efficient pedaling while still retaining flexible for walking, and the grippy Vibram soles make hike-a-bikes easy. Of course, the Rimes feature Specialized's Body Geometry ergonomics for awesome support and comfort, while the Boa and Velcro closures make it a breeze to find a perfect fit on the fly. With armor around the toes and heels, synthetic uppers and wrap-style tongues that keep the dirt out, the Rimes are sure to be your go-to shoes when your ride is all about adventure.
In addition to standard Velcro straps, these shoes use the innovative Boa lacing system. The micro-adjustable Boa dials and wire laces evenly distribute pressure for a custom fit, maximum comfort, excellent pedaling efficiency and even hot-spot prevention. Plus, the dials are easy to use and rebuildable.
