Shimano RC9 Pro Missile EVO
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.
