Purpose built for triathletes, the Pearl Izumi Women's Tri Fly Select V6 Shore facilitates speedy transitions and responsive pedaling. Shaving precious time from your race transitions, the Anatomic Tri Closure features large fastening points for easy in and out. This closure system maintains a secure fit without excess foot movement sapping power output to the pedals. The bonded seamless upper conforms to your foot like a glove--all without creating hot spots or nasty pressure points. Ventilated mesh throughout the upper facilitates quick-drying comfort, should you opt not to wear socks after leaving the swim stage. There's also a tongue-less design that further increases airflow. Maintaining the stiffness desired for racing, the Composite Power Plate features a carbon insert along the forefoot for greater pedaling efficiency. It's stiff enough to be a dedicated triathlon shoe, yet not overly aggressive when you're training on the road. This sole accommodates both traditional 3-bolt road and 2-bolt mountain bike cleats.
