Step up your cycling game and minimize transition time with the Shimano women's SH TR9 Shoes. Boasting a lightweight carbon composite sole with a rating of 10 out of a possible 12 on Shimano's stiffness scale, these shoes are built to transfer power in a snap with a few features to make transitions a breeze. Shimano's triathlon specific T1 Quick strap gives a wide target to grab while in the saddle and easily tightens down for a secure fit while asymmetrical heel loops let you quickly secure your shoes after exiting T1. The SH TR9's upper is made from a mix of synthetic leather and breathable, fast drying mesh that provides exceptional ventilation to dry off after the swim and keep your feet cool and comfortable throughout the bike leg. At the front, a toe cap with air intake perforations helps maintain the upper's shape and provides extra breathability and water shedding properties.
