Gr8 4 trial run, but what bout adventure racing?

Very happy with shoes. Performing well in wet, muddy conditions in New Zealand winter. Do have a concern about the dial on heal, tho. Will this last in the muddy grit? Shoes are gr8 for trial running (light, good traction, easy to dial laces up/down), but I suspect dial's internal parts and construction not tough enough to cope with rugged nature (ankle deep mud, sea water, river x-ings, ploughing thru native forest floor) of adventure racing. Would love to be proven wrong on this point.
