Specialized Trivent Terra

The draw: Time savings in T1

Off-road athletes rejoice: There is finally a mountain bike shoe suited to a quick transition. Specialized spliced a tri-specific upper designed for flying mounts onto a treaded mountain bike sole. These shoes can give you a head start over the rest of the field (if the course doesn’t start with a climb) by strapping in while rolling away from transition. Fit is right down the middle—perfect for a foot of average width.
