Speedy is an understatement.
The Louis Garneau Women's Tri X-Lite II Shoe has effortless transitions and pedaling efficiency in mind, so you can shave precious time off your T1 and maintain a blistering cadence in the bike stage of your upcoming triathlon. Hook-and-loop straps quickly secure the shoe when seconds are rapidly ticking during the swim-to-bike transition.
Its synthetic leather upper conforms to your foot for optimal comfort and pedaling efficiency, and it's reinforced along the toe box to prevent collapse. To keep the foot in place, the anti-slip membrane comfortably hugs your heel to reduce slippage and uncomfortable rubbing. Breathable mesh drastically increases airflow, as do the perforated vents built directly into the sole. This heightened airflow is crucial if you're racing in hot weather, also decreasing sweat build-up if you choose to forgo socks for speedier transitions.
Sitting at the heart of every triathlon shoe, the sole is one of the most crucial aspects in terms of pedaling performance. Fulfilling the need for pedaling power, the Carbon Composite sole maximizes every watt of available energy. This means you'll surge forward with every pedal stroke, without having to exert more energy than necessary. For balance and grip, the replaceable heel bumper comes in handy when you dismount at the end of the bike stage.

- Q & A
Sister uses these for Tri's
I bought these for my sister for her bday/xmas to help her rock her Triathalon's shes been doing with increased frequency. Here is what she had to say: they are easy to wear with no rubbing when you don't wear socks. when you do wear socks you cannot even tell theres an additional layer in the shoe. they help circulating the air after you get out of the water in a triathlon and have your feet dry by the time you go into T2.
