Race Triathlon and Time Trial...
I purchased these shoes as an upgrade to my existing road bike shoes, to use when racing triathlons. The first thing I noticed was the extreme light weight of this shoe, and the no-tongue design. Not having a tongue makes the shoe very easy to get in/out of, even with one hand when exiting TI and entering T2. I like the fact that the strap lays to the outside (versus to the inside like many other triathlon shoes), this makes it much more natural to strap and unstrap on the go. These shoes even have a small loop on the inside of the heel dedicated to tying off a rubber band and holding the shoe horizontal for easy mounting when leaving T1. The carbon sole is nice and stiff, I noticed a big difference from my other shoes that lacked a carbon sole. These seem to be much more efficient, applying all your power to the pedals. All in all, this is an excellent shoe at a very reasonable price. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
