Review for Louis Garneau Women’s X-Lite Tri Shoe – 2016
This ultralight triathlon elite shoe was designed for performance and speed, on the bike as well as in transition. The Carbon HM Air-Lite outsole and 4.3 mm carbon platform provide excellent power transfer and ventilation. For a fast and efficient transition, a woven puller holds the shoe in a horizontal position on the bike, a velcro tab keeps the closure strap open and a stiff rear puller is easy to grab and pull. The Power Flex closure system offers reversed straps that enhance support without pressure points while allowing a fast transition. The lightweight sandwich mesh upper dries quickly and provides ventilation, so your feet stay dry and comfortable.DETAILS: Women specific fit Ergo Air Carbon Composite outsole with patented multivent system: Provides excellent rigidity and increased ventilation Carbon HM Air-Lite outsole: Ultralight and rigid for better power transfer and through-and-through ventilation Adjustable cleats: Cleats can be moved 7 mm back and forth 4.3 mm CARBON platform: Closer to the pedal for even more power Replacable low-profile rear heel pad Interchangeable COOLMAX Ergo Air Cool Stuff blue and Hot Stuff red insoles: Patented ventilation system HRS-100 with 0.6 mm membrane: Maintains heel positioning and reduces loss of power Reversed velcro closure with Power Flex system: Enhances support without pressure points Offset strap: Provides effective heel support Strap at heel for easier transition Lightweight sandwich mesh upper : Dries quickly and provides ventilation COOLMAX Ergo Air insoles : Ventilated and manage moisture Cleat position indicator compatible with SPD-SL, SPD, TIME, LOOK and SPEEDPLAY cleats Approximate weight (size 38/1 shoe) : 192 g/6.77 oz Women Optimum FitMaintains the heel in place during power stroke, thus maximizing power transfer.
