Bontrager's RL Road Shoes deliver features of much more expensive shoes without the premium price tag. They boast Bontrager's stiff and supportive Silver Series carbon soles for premium pedaling power and customizable eSoles that cradle you in comfort. Meanwhile, Bontrager's breathable InForm uppers feel great and feature tongues that extend to the toes for an awesome fit. And, you'll love the secure ratcheting buckles, Velcro strap closures and custom heel cups, too.
I loved them from the first time I tried them on and enjoyed riding with them. Like any road shoes with stiff soles, you need to be careful when walking on smooth surfaces. However, for the price Bontrager should've made them adaptable for SPD cleats. There are 'similar' lower-end models with both options to use Look/SPD-SL or SPD cleats that cost less. Overall, great shoes that I'm sure will last me a long time.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
