At first, they concentrated on the manufacturing of cycling components, fishing tackle and snowboarding equipment, but they have now extended their reach and support of outdoors to the triathletes. Shimano SH-TR31 Triathlon Cycling Shoes are the best of both worlds, and they have everything that every serious or amateur triathlete will look for in a shoe. Count on Shimano and their years of research and development in cycling. They produce some of the finest cycling products and now triathlon cycling shoes.
First of all, one of the biggest problems of other triathlon shoes is that they are particularly uncomfortable without socks. You do not want to risk chafing or blisters during the bike leg of your race before you even start running. But as any experienced triathlete knows when you are in the T1 transition dripping wet from having just been swimming, you cannot always afford to take the time to put on socks before putting on your triathlon cycling shoes. Now you can save those socks for the T2 transition when it comes time to start. The Shimano SH-TR31 Triathlon Cycling Shoes have a quick dry and seamless interior, so it is comfortable to wear even without socks, and the dual mesh provides excellent breathability so your wet feet will naturally air dry.
One of the biggest promises of this triathlon shoe is that it will bring the highest quality but for a cheaper price. Its features are those that have the runner in mind, promoting better and more comfortable training, and even for competing. The reversed strap closure and heel strap are there to provide for lightning quick changes from event to event. It simply does not make sense to buy triathlon shoes that have shoelaces because you will waste precious time putting them on properly.
The sole is a lightweight glass fiber reinforced polyamid, which makes it both stiff but compliant. It also has extra-reinforced outsole pads and heel cups for extra protection. These triathlon cycling shoes, because they specifically for triathletes, are different from the regular cycling shoes in that they have a reversed strap closure and heel strap. This feature makes it possible for lightning quick changes in the transition area. When it comes to triathlons, no amount of training will account for the failure of equipment, so it is better to have all the best equipment and buy from Shimano.
So with the Shimano SH-TR31 Triathlon Shoe, you will have the chance to maximize your performance. Train with this and it is like you are training along with the best assistant that you could ask for. This shoe will give you the comfort and ease that you need, all the while still giving optimum performance for the sake of the triathlon. Remember, no matter how much you train, you are still going to be held back by inferior things that you choose to connect yourself to. Get nothing but the best; get Shimano.
