The Shimano TR5 Triathlon shoes offer high-performance features at an entry-level price. The reversed strap closure and heel strap allow fast transitions and the quick dry interior is comfortable even without socks. The lightweight glass fiber reinforced-polyamide sole ensures efficient pedaling.
Optimized Shoe Last The toe-spring section of a cycling shoe plays a key role in supporting efficient pedaling. Too high, and it causes increased tension in the plantar, calf, and hamstring muscles. Too low, and you get a bowlegged, inefficient pedaling form. Extensive research by Shimano's R&D experts has produced a superior shoe last design with an optimized toe-spring section that promotes a smoother, more energy-efficient upstroke. Built based on feedback from pro riders, Shimano Dynalast helps reduce energy loss on long rides, letting you keep more in the tank for that final sprint to the line.
CUT BRAKING LOSS WITH MORE EFFICIENT PEDALING Braking loss is the unwanted loss of power that occurs between the crank angles of 200｡ and 360｡ in the backspin direction of a pedal stroke. Shoes incorporating Shimano Dynalast help to reduce braking loss by promoting smoother, more efficient pedaling. If you want to reduce fatigue, get the most out of your legs, and go the extra mile, ride Shimano Dynalast.
Compatibility We recommend you use Shimano SPD-SL cleats available here with the Shimano PD-R540 SPD SL Sport Pedals available here.
Triathlon racing cycling shoes are designed without compromise to provide the optimum power transfer between your foot and the pedal, a good quality triathlon shoe is a wise investment for performance and weight saving and is often overlooked. High-tech materials and precision manufacture keep weight down and stiffness up, this means your rotational mass is lower and power transfer is higher, resulting in more forward momentum for your effort. The main difference between a Tri shoe and a road shoe is the number of straps found on the uppers, Tri shoes tend to have one large strap for quick and easy removal during transitions, whereas a road shoe will have three or even four straps. For longer distance events such as half and full Ironmans a road shoe could be a wise choice though.
