Mavic Tri Helium $350
The Tri Helium, resplendent in Mavic’s signature yellow, has a snug, but not overly tight fit and a flat sole. This top-end shoe features a full-carbon-fiber sole that is exceptionally stiff and lightweight, a heel loop that’s easy to grab and a unique closure system. The main strap over the arch runs inward toward the bike, and the minimalistic front closure secures the foot with less material and therefore less weight, helping the shoe stay true to its Helium name.
