Boa dials are pretty much ubiquitous these days when it comes to cycling footwear. The latest upgrade from the Denver-based company is the Boa Li2 system, featuring lower profile dials and micro-adjustments. The new system is also said to be more environmentally friendly.
The Li2 dials will start showing up on top-of-market shoes from Fizik, Scott, Rapha, Gaerne, Lake, and DMT later in 2020, and on Bontrager, Giro, Louis Garneau, and Specialized shoes in early 2021.
The three different Boa dial profiles will be paired with Boa’s TX4 soft lace, all three Boa dials will feature multi-directional function for both tightening and loosening, along with a pop up release system. The tactile features of the Li2 now use a composite overmold around the perimeter of the dial to increase durability and grip.
