Step up your cycling game and minimize transition time with the Shimano women's SH-TR9 Shoes. Boasting a lightweight carbon composite sole with a rating of 10 out of a possible 12 on Shimano's stiffness scale, these shoes are built to transfer power in a snap with a few features to make transitions a breeze. Shimano's triathlon-specific T1-Quick strap gives a wide target to grab while in the saddle and easily tightens down for a secure fit while asymmetrical heel loops let you quickly secure your shoes after exiting T1. The SH-TR9's upper is made from a mix of synthetic leather and breathable, fast-drying mesh that provides exceptional ventilation to dry off after the swim and keep your feet cool and comfortable throughout the bike leg. At the front, a toe cap with air intake perforations helps maintain the upper's shape and provides extra breathability and water shedding properties.
