The right pair of tri cycling shoes is crucial to triathlon performance. Whether someone is trying to shave crucial seconds from top level times, or slice minutes from their previous personal best, the right footwear is vital. Tri cycling shoes need to be simple to slip on and off and have suitably stiff soles to keep foot fatigue to a minimum before putting in the hard yards on the run.
Scott tri shoes are great value for the serious triathlete. Their velcro fasteners seriously reduces the possibility of problems at changeover time, while a sole stiffness index of nine will keep feet in the right position on the pedals. The Tri Carbon range comes in stylish black, giving an athlete a sleek look as well as comfortable feet.
Other great value items from the range of Scott tri shoes have ErgoLogic insoles, as well as a nylon and fibreglass outsole. The shoes' stiffness index rating of eight means that feet will always be fresh for the run.
Shimano triathlon shoes can also be good value for both professional and amateur competitors, with a good range of items on offer. It is possible to compare Shimano triathlon shoes favourably with the other brands on offer, with shape of foot often playing an important part in personal selection.
Additionally, Northwave triathlon shoes are another good choice for all levels of athlete. Winners of a recent Triathlon Plus Mag Gold Award, Northwave shoes feature a carbon composite sole and easy to use velcro straps.
Choose wisely and the right shoes will shave seconds and maybe minutes from your time.
