2013 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Cycling Shoes

Pearl Izumi Tri Fly IV

$180, Pearl-izumi.com
The draw: No weaknesses, accessible price tag

This affordable shoe has it all: Stiff carbon sole, low overall weight, solid fit and a quick closure system. Although it isn’t best in class in any one category, it more than meets the needs of anyone looking to rip through transition and ride away in comfort. Fit is a bit more generous than average. And if you’re into bold colors, the Tri Fly IV fits the bill (the shoe is also available in black and white).
