The Draw: Entry-Level Excellence

Our test of the Tri Fly had us scratching our heads in wonder with one question: How is this shoe only $100? It is one of the sti est tri cycling shoes on the market, offering a rock-solid connection between rider and bike. It boasts the lightweight carbon-composite build of much more expensive options and an airy, seamless upper that kept us spinning along in comfort. We also appreciate the huge loop behind the heel and extra-wide main Velcro strap on the top of the foot for easy on and off in transition. With its narrower shape and snug fit, this shoe is best suited for women with smaller-volume feet.
