BOA Launches New LI2 Dial Platform to Debut on Cycling Footwear

Written by

BOA Technology announces the new Li2 dial platform, set to debut on cycling footwear, bringing a smaller, more durable and sustainable dial to market. Li2 offers a sleek, low-profile design, and maintains the precise, incremental micro-adjustability BOA is known for.

Launching on road, gravel, and mountain bike footwear, look for premium product with Li2 from Fizik, Scott, Rapha, Gaerne, Lake and DMT this fall, and Bontrager, Giro, Louis Garneau and Specialized in 2021. Li2 is the ultimate in fast, effortless, precision fit. The lightweight and low-profile dial platform offers unprecedented durability against impact, abrasion, and contaminants such as dirt and debris. Compact in size but packed with power,

Li2 offers benefits designed to meet the needs of cyclists at every touchpoint during a ride. Multidirectional tightening and loosening allows for incremental adjustment to accommodate foot swelling on long rides, or a tighter fit for steep climbs and sprints. Aligned with BOA’s larger sustainability initiatives to reduce its carbon footprint both internally and within its manufacturing processes, Li2 was designed to reuse and reduce material waste. Li2 is available to brand partners in three dial profiles to meet varying functions, aesthetic needs and accommodate dual-dial and single-dial fit system configurations. Brand new is also the comptability of BOA’s lightweight and strong TX4 textile lace next to the know steel lace with Li2.

The new Li2 platform is designed as a bayonet and cartridge system (like the known L6 platform). Featuring maximum impact protection, resistance to accidental opening and dirt contamination. On severe impact, the cartridge is designed to release from the bayonet. If this happens, the user can insert the cartridge back into the bayonet. This is BOA’s first-ever dial platform to introduce a composite material overmold – a durable, low-profile grip around the perimeter of the dial.

Cycling footwear equipped with the new Li2 platform has been tested by Pro Tour team riders and will debut in the market this fall with numerous product launches from BOA brand partners.
