The ac­claimed Ital­ians un­veil their new range-top­ping triathlon shoe for 2019

220 Triathlon Magazine - - START -

Af­ter a year of de­vel­op­ment with mul­ti­ple Iron­man champ Michelle Vesterby and the BMC-Vi­fit Pro Triathlon Team, top Ital­ians Fizik de­buted their lat­est range­top­ping triathlon shoes, the Transiro In­finito R1 Knit, at the Iron­man World Cham­pi­onships in Oc­to­ber.

The stand­out fea­ture is the tit­u­lar knit­ted-ma­te­rial up­per, which boasts an ad­di­tional wa­ter-re­pel­lent treat­ment in a bid to pre­vent mois­ture ab­sorp­tion, as well as claims of en­hanced com­fort, ven­ti­la­tion and quick-dry­ing abil­i­ties post-T1.

Fas­ten­ing comes from a pair of Boa di­als lo­cated away from po­ten­tial hot spots on the tongue, and there’s a cush­ioned, flat-seamed col­lar area said to pro­mote sock­less foot en­try and long-dis­tance com­fort. The out­sole, mean­while, is full car­bon and in­cludes a re­place­able heel skid plate.

Also in the Transiro range are the more af­ford­able In­finito R4 (£110) and R3 (£235).
