We created the XA Elite II to be a versatile go-to shoe that helps you get the most out of every trail ride. It starts with our Energy Grip Trail outsole, which provides a high-energy connection that maximizes your pedaling power. The sole also features a Contagrip tread with lugs that are shaped to maximize your traction in dry or wet conditions. For comfort, we’ve added the Ortholite insole, which offers superior cushioning on and off the bike. The Quick Lace closure, combined with a top strap, makes it easy to adjust the fit and tightness just the way you like. Up front, we added welded toe protection to keep you protected from roots, rocks, and other trail debris. Your feet are your connection to the bike and to the trail. Treat them well with the XA Elite II, and they'll carry you farther and faster than you ever thought possible.
