Looking to improve transition times? Here is a shoe you should try – Specialized’s S-Works Trivent Triathlon Cycling Shoe. It sets a new standard for quick transition with its BOA quick dial lacing system and folding heel cup, which opens in the back and allows you to slide your foot in with much more ease (a magnet keeps it closed and your foot in place afterwards). The carbon sole is comprised of FACT 12.0, the stiffest available in Specialized’s lineup. Their Body Geometry features ensure you have an efficient interface between your foot and shoe. Smooth internal lining means you can ride sock-less and still feel comfortable. Lightweight, tough and water-resistant.
