Bon­trager’s RXL Hilo

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - Gift Guide 2013 Beginner Package -


Bon­trager’s rxl Hilo is among the most ver­sa­tile of triathlon shoes. With its no-pull-through main strap, wear­ers get the in-step sup­port of a road shoe with the fast en­try and clo­sure of a tri shoe. Un­like the ear­lier trend of tri shoes which closed on the in­side, thereby po­ten­tially in­ter­fer­ing with the crank or pedal, the rxl Hilo closes con­ve­niently on the out­side of the foot. Bon­trager’s pro­pri­etary last fits snug to your foot op­ti­miz­ing po­si­tion and power trans­fer. The stiff­ness of Bon­trager’s Sil­ver Se­ries Car­bon soles means verly lit­tle en­ergy is wasted from foot to pedal. The ex­pe­ri­enced triath­lete will love the easy-grab heel loop, and rub­ber band an­chor. At just the right size with­out too ex­ces­sive bulk, it makes fly­ing mounts has­sle-free and safe. A well-ven­ti­lated mesh pan­elling in the arch, lat­eral side and toe area en­sure the wet feet from T1 dry quickly and stay cool. With the stan­dard three-hole cleat setup, the rxl Hilo is ready for most ped­als.
