    2FO VS Freerider Mesh

    How do these to compare in breathability, and drying times. I'm going to a hot and sweaty place and my Elements aren't going to cut it. Much thanks.

    I'm not aware of a specific 5-10 "mesh" model but a have a bunch of 5-10s and the Freerider Contacts have a meshy material top of the toe box mush like the 2FO.

    To be honest, shoes make the least amount of difference in hot weather. Helmet, shorts, jersey and even gloves seem to matter a great deal more than shoes for me in the Texas heat.

    Having said that, the 2FOs are a bit more breathable than the Freerider Contacts for two reasons. The 2FOs mesh is more porous and the tongue is also very breathable. I came to this conclusion on a rare cold day when my feet got a bit cold in the 2FOs while the previous day my feet did not feel any air circulation with the 5-10s. Both times wearing Defeet's excellent Woolater sock.

    Then 2FOs run a wee bit small in the size I have...43 I believe.
