If there’s an overriding theme to my review of the La Sportiva Helios 2.0 it’s paradox. However, overall this is a very fast and solid shoe that can handle trails that aren’t too rocky or technical like a boss. Other than that, I feel like if I told you where this shoe is going to be best for YOU I’d be grasping at straws. This is a shoe that deserves some miles being put into it before you decide if it’s your daily driver on the trails or it’s just for fast, non-technical days.
At $125 it’s pretty much where I’d expect it to be and while it is one of those shoes that I see as part of the overall uptick in shoe prices, that doesn’t bother me too much. A solid offering from a solid brand. While there is room for improvement, I think that for the right person and on the right trails the Helios 2.0 can get it done.
How much is too much ground feel in a trail shoe? Do like a little or a LOT? Tell us in the comments!? Tell us in the comments!
