New riders will be happy to learn that the TR 31 makes getting used to riding clipless pedals easy. The TR 31 is a light but supportive shoe. The mesh and supple synthetic leather upper and glass fibre sole make for a snug fit. Compatible with three bolt and two bolt cleats the TR 31 allows for pedal upgrades without having to replace the shoe. The quick dry and seamless interior encourages a comfortable sockless fit ideal for both short and longer course races. A single thick Velcro strap ensures feet stay firmly in place but also makes for speedy transitions. The heel is equipped with an easy-use, sizable synthetic leather hook making pulling your foot out on the bike easy to do with control. The upper is soft enough to ride with your foot on top while approaching and leaving the mount/ dismount line. Despite being a shiny white (with black accents) the shoe is easy to keep clean (even of bike grease). Its exceptional value and ease of use make the TR 31 a great choice for beginners and seasoned riders alike.
