Shi­mano RC9 Pro Mis­sile EVO

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - FEATURES -

For those look­ing for a more tra­di­tional road shoe that will still get you through a quick tran­si­tion, the RC9 is worth a look. Thanks to a uni­fied sole and up­per con­struc­tion, the RC9 pro­vides ex­cel­lent ped­alling ef­fi­ciency in a light­weight, com­fort­able shoe. Like all good cy­cling shoes, you get a snug fit thanks to the nar­row bot­tom and slim toe box, but you can dial in the fit to en­sure you’re still com­fort­able thanks to two Boa di­als. The quick dry 3D mesh al­lows for lots of air flow, while drainage holes en­sure wa­ter won’t pool in the shoe in rainy con­di­tions or those hot triathlon race-days when you end up pour­ing lots of wa­ter on your head.

The full car­bon de­sign of this ex­tremely aero­dy­namic aer­o­bar uses in­te­grated brake and shifter cable rout­ing to hide as much as pos­si­ble from the wind. There’s lots of ad­justa­bil­ity for both the com­fort­able arm pads and the ex­ten­sions so you can dial in the per­fect er­gonomic and aero­dy­namic fit. The only down­side with these bars is they look so fast you’ll have a lot to live up to come race day.
