Description

Because even the best walk sometimes.

The Louis Garneau T-Flex 2LS Shoes may just be the best of both worlds. Which worlds, you ask? Well, the worlds of comfortable riding shoes and efficient race shoes. That’s because the stiff, responsive carbon fiber sole is built with Garneau’s T-Flex technology, which gives you a degree of flex in the forefoot, for greater walkability, without giving up one watt of wasted energy when it comes time to get on the gas.

As you’re no doubt aware, carbon fiber soles are ideal when you need efficiency, but they tend to sacrifice comfort, especially when it comes time to walk a hairy section. But thanks to Garneau’s T-Flex technology, optimal power transmission doesn’t come at the expense of walking comfort. Thanks to the flexible portion under the forefoot, the 2LS takes the sting out of walking or running, which makes it perfect for ‘cross, among other disciplines. And adding to the on-foot functionality, the dual density lugs have a gummy outer compound for grip on rocks and roots, with a harder center compound, which keeps the knobs stiff when you’re fighting for traction.

Moving up the shoe, you’ll notice the dual L5 Boa closures provide incredible fine tuning and a secure hold. The importance of the dual Boa closures is that the upper dial can be snugged down to maximize heel hold, while still allowing for a more relaxed fit in the forefoot. This translates into increased bloodflow, and reduced hot spots, so you can ride longer, and in greater comfort. In regards to the upper itself, Garneau created it from an ultra-breathable and highly durable microfiber, with mesh panels for enhanced airflow.

The Louis Garneau T-Flex 2LS Shoes are available in sizes 38 to 48, with half sizes between 41 and 47, and they come in the color Black.

how sizing and compare w/Copper TFlex

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use these for commuting and cyclocross. As a size 12, normal 46, these sizes are a bit strange and don't seem to conform to standard exchange metrics. I originally ordered size 48, due to 'small size warnings' and while it was close, the toe box seemed a bit wide. I ordered a 47 in the 2LS and found locally a size 46 and 47 in the newer copper T Flex shoe. The Copper T flex is a beautiful shoe and looks more like a road shoe than the 2Ls. It has a diagonal tongue, like a soccer cleat, and the wires seemed to stick a bit more when dialing in the boa. But what made me choose the 2Ls over the copper is that the Copper would rub the inner side of my forefoot and make the shoe bow out. I don't know if that is because its more of a racer shoe or I have flat feet, but the Copper didn't work. I ended up going with a size 47, which is what the company recommended on its conversion chart for a size 12. Start there. If I did, I would not have to send the size 48 copy back to Backcountry. https://garneau.com/us/en/customer-service/sizing-charts/shoes

2 sizes too small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 47

I normally wear a 13, so ordered the 47. Couldn't fit my foot in at all. As for the look, it seemed way too plasticky and shiny.

Runs small

  • Fit: Runs small

Agree with Jason, except the "true to size" bit - for me, anyway. I wear an Asics 12.5 and 13 in Brooks, Nike, and most other things. the 48, which the sizing chart says is a 14, is too tight. I was a footballer and like the snug fit of a shoe, and this shoe has an awesome toe box (closer to the Bont-style, or Keen/Chaco), but just too short. You can see the non-pointy toe box well on the picture from straight above it.



ALSO, a huge PLUS... the inside of the heal is a special fabric that is smooth going in and rough coming out. It holds the heal so well. And there are little grippy rubber things that I'm sure will wear off within the first year, but the heal-hold is amazing! I so wish they fit...



Caveat: Difficult to really rate a product without actually using it, so take the stars for what that's worth. Appears to be made well and the toe-box, upper, outsole, and heal-hold would sell this to me, for sure.

if the shoe fits

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Two things I want my bike shoes to do - close tightly and be stiff. These do just that. Its a road shoe with tread, basically. Boas do their job, shoe outers are durable and are handling rocks and scrapes well. They dry quickly and the sole isn't too plasticy like some shoes, causing you to slip anytime you're on a hard surface.
