Pearl Izumi Tri Fly Carbon IV, Women’s
Thisaffordable tri shoe is an excellent option for fast transitions. The anatomic tri Closure eliminates hot spots and the main strap opens away from the drivetrain. It also locks open for easy entry on f lying mounts and stays put for the perfect dismount without the chance of hitting the drivetrain when running through T2. The oversized heel-loop is less firm than some models on the market, but its size nonetheless assures access while pedalling. A fully lined mesh upper and a large vent at the toe box maximize cooling and drying for barefoot comfort. The hot pink stitching on the toe box adds an attractive feminine touch. The carbon sole is light and stiff for power transfer. Because the arch is not rigid, the Tri Fly can easily accommodate a wider foot or an orthotic. But the eva foam and rubber heel bumper ensure stability and comfort.
