This is the slightly less extreme of our two triathlon shoes. But only slightly. The Energy Comp outsole is a fraction more flexible than the full carbon version used in the Ultimate—so comfort is increased but without sacrificing much power. It also features our Ortholite inner sole for added support, but with tri-specific design features including a large, easily adjustable strap and over-sized heel loop for quick transitions and a fast-wicking lightweight mesh upper for when you come out of the water. If you’re looking to improve your times, this shoe will give you the kick you need.
