Pearl Izumi

Tri Fly IV Carbon
The draw: Plush comfort, solid fit

The anatomically designed closure of the Pearl Izumi Tri Fly IV Carbon comfortably wraps your feet and eliminates hot spots, thanks in part to the offset straps. The glove-like fit locks the foot into place, which helps direct power through the stiff carbon sole. Ventilation is excellent thanks to mesh panels throughout the upper. The Tri Fly IV fits small, so consider a half size up from your normal.
