Road & Triathlon Shoes
Our Range of Road and Triathlon shoes
Road cycling shoes open up a whole new level of possibilities for you and your bike out on the road. Ride faster with less effort and improved comfort with clipless cycling shoes. Cycling shoes clip into the pedals so that you don’t slip and have complete control over your pedals. When you’re clipped in you will maximise power transfer on the downstroke and also be able to transfer power on the backstroke, something not possible with normal shoes. While the stiffer soles will give you a balanced platform to apply your pedalling power, further improving power transfer and minimising discomfort.
Entry-level shoes will be designed with a nylon shank stiffness while our high-end performance road shoes are built with a much stiffer carbon shank for the best power transfer. To top it all off, road cycling shoes are specifically built for road cycling so they’ll last longer as they’re made from durable materials. So you’ll get a lot longer than you would if you were wearing a pair of joggers on flat pedals.
Top triathlon cycling shoes are very similar to road cycling shoes, with a few differences to make that second leg of your triathlon a bit easier. Triathlon shoes are built for easy transition, typically with on strap that opens outwards and a pull tab on the heel to remove your shoes for the run. They are often seamless so that you don’t have to wear socks, while also being incredibly breathable. Even if you’re not a triathlete these shoes might suit you if you’re after a simple and easy design.
