Rime 2.0 Mountain Bike Shoe

Built for high-alpine terrain, the Rime 2.0 brings rugged capability to ensure you can conquer any mountain trail. XPEL mesh lining sheds while you shred, preventing the shoe from becoming water-logged in creek crossings and will dry overnight. Our Lollipop™ midsole construction is paired with a gnarly Vibram rubber outsole creating superb/unmatched off-bike push-ability for getting over any unrideable terrain. For closure, a standard lace is paired with a L6 Boa® for precise fit, on-bike adjustability, and redundancy to keep you riding when you're in the backcountry.

A good purchase

Awesome shoe. Good Looking. Love the Vibram soles. Fits perfectly, though I did add more arch support with insoles. Very comfortable. And also warm. Good power transfer to the pedals. Really like them.

Long term review

I have had a pair of Rime 2.0’s since June 2021 which have served as my sole (ha) cycling shoe, covering thousands of miles from desert to alpine, primarily paired with a Mallet E pedal. They have performed exactly as advertised - stiff enough to put down the power and tough enough for extended off-bike travel, but comfortable, breathable, and able to shed water effectively after full-foot immersion. The lace and Boa system provides excellent fit, but it does require careful tightening to prevent the corners of the tongue from digging into the ankle. Take the time to set it correctly, though, and it’s secure for hours. I hope Specialized continues to make this shoe for years to come. I will buy it again whenever these ones finally wear out.

Great shoes!

Very comfortable, stiffer sole for pedaling comfort compared with other shoes, but still comfortable for walking. Happy!

Nice shoe that could be even better.

I have had the last two iterations of the rime shoe and love them. I bought these but ended up returning them as the fit a bit loose for the size. If they offered a boa/Velcro or boa alone I would give it another go. For me the laces slow things down too much as I still am old school and take my knee pads off for climbs.

These are great! They feel

These are great! They feel like traditional tennis shoes or light hiking shoes when not on the bike. I use them for casual riding (no spandex), camping, and bike packing. cleats do not contact the ground. I went with a 45 and I usually wear a 10.5/11. The 45's give me plenty of wiggle room at my toes. Maybe a half inch of space.

Really happy with purchase

They are stiff like a cycling shoe but also work well for hiking in steep terrain, they lace very tight and the BOA system is a nice feature. I am finding them very comfortable and stylish.

Already falling apart

Bought these to try out cause they were on sale and wasn't ready to pull the trigger on high end shoes. I really like the sole and once they broke in they are comfortable. Unfortunately I have a wide foot and there are very few wide shoes out there. Don't think I am at 200 miles on them yet. The seams are starting to come apart already. If you dont have a wide foot these are a great shoe.

Fit is a bit tight

Great shoe but fit is a bit tight. I wear a 12 and ordered a size 46 which is what has always worked when dealing with Euro sizes. But here my toes are at the tip and rubbing - I would order a size up next time.
