Shimano releases new tri shoe: TR9

SH-TR900-SB_A_S2 (2)Now entering its 13th year of producing dedicated triathlon footwear, Shimano has raised the bar for its professional-level footwear with the new TR9 elite triathlon racing shoe. Engineered to allow for rapid transition times, rigid power transfer and righteous comfort, the new TR9 shoe packs in a host of top features, including a dual-strap system to meet the needs of triathletes who demand the very best footwear.

The unisex TR9 is an elite racing shoe made with podium-stepping performance in mind. Produced in Shimano’s signature blue color, the TR9 is designed to optimize power transfer and shave time off your transitions.

Alternatively, the TR9W in white is also available with a women’s-specific fit. With a lightweight, stiff carbon fiber composite sole and a stability-enhancing dual-density, cupped insole, Shimano’s TR9 triathlon shoe has a 10/12 stiffness rating for optimum power transfer and a cushioning effect to prepare feet for the final punishing leg of any triathlon.

SH-TR900-SB_O_F3Helle Frederiksen of the Uplace BMC Pro Triathlon team highlighted the TR9 as a crucial factor in her recent IM 70.3 Brasilia win:

“The new TR9 shoes have a great combination of being really easy to get into and being snug around the foot and ankle when riding. The Velcro straps allow me to land straight into the shoes when mounting the bike. The top strap opens out too, meaning it doesn´t go into the chain, another added feature that saves me vital seconds. Also the stiffness of the sole responds like a road shoe, which works well for me. It’s the perfect shoe for any pro or amateur triathlete.”
