Specialized Trivent (2013)

: We review the top two triathlon shoes from Specialized, the S-Works Trivent and the Trivent Expert. Both feature carbon soles and are well-vented, but the similarities stop there.

Shimano TR60 & R170 shoes

: We review two 2013 cycling shoes from Shimano – the SH-TR60 tri shoe, and the SH-R170 road shoe. We also look at new Shimano cleats, including a second option in float.

Mavic shoes 2013

: We look at the 2013 shoe line from French manufacturer, Mavic. While known primarily for wheels, they have many options in shoes and make a decidedly nice pair.

Bontrager RXL Hilo 2012

: The new Hilo is a completely different shoe than the old. Almost everything they could change or update they did. I like it when a company learns from its shortcomings and Bontrager did.

Pearl Izumi Tri Fly IV (2012)

: The Pearl Izumi Tri Fly III got a complete makeover, and the TriFly IV is an improved shoe as a result. The closure system, heel loop, the upper, all gets a makeover in a shoe that was already good ...

Scott Tri Carbon Shoe (2012)

: Scott's got a footwear division, making both running and cycling shoes. I'm impressed with the quality of its work. Overall these shoes are good, but certain design features need some upgrading.

Lake TX312

: This is one hell of a shoe, created with passion for the sport, and it will definitely be my shoe for the coming season. Still, distribution and customer service will be this shoe company's ...

Sidi T2 Silver Snake

: Sidi's carbon-soled T2 Silver Snake. You can debate about the silver snakeskin upper on this wider-than-average Sidi, but I kind of liked it. It makes a statement.

The Bontrager RXL Hilo

: This triathlon cycling shoe has the best breathability of all shoes I’ve so far tested. The large amount of mesh used in the upper of the shoe makes this like riding with the air conditioning on ...

Bont Sub-10

: Bont's moldable, monocoque cycling shoes bring something new to the tri shoe category: a shoe so form fitting the single-strap closure method isn't the liability it once was.

Northwave Tribute

: The Tribute is an update on the Tribal: a tri-specific cycling shoe with an extremely soft Lorica upper. Don't expect the same fit, feel and features: the shoe is an improvement, or not, depending ...

Specialized TriVent

: Specialized really went after the tri-specific crowd with its TriVent BG shoe. Notwithstanding a couple of minor peeves, this shoe is the cash register leader and deserves to be.
