Out-of-this-world power transfer. Superb ventilation. Speedy on/off. Specialized's Trivent Expert Shoes boast everything you want in a pair of triathlon shoes. Equipped with Specialized's ultra-stiff and light FACT carbon soles, the Trivents also sport extra-airy mesh uppers for maximum airflow, and Specialized's perforated Body Geometry insoles that perfectly position your feet for maximum pedaling efficiency. They also have a smooth lining so you'll be comfortable riding without socks, and outsoles that actually reflect the heat for outstanding temperature regulation and comfort. You'll love the wide Velcro straps and heel pulls that let you rapidly slip the Trivents on/off for speeding through the transitions.
Triathlete who rides btw 170 and 200 miles per week. I train and race in these. These are the first shoes that do not give me hotspots. I replaced the red standard insole with the blue specialized footbed (needed a little more support). Have tried Sidi shoes, Scott and Bont and none were as comfy as these. Of course, important for triathletes, they are also very quick to get on and off.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
