When it came time to develop our ultralight road shoe, we weren’t willing to sacrifice stiffness or comfort in the pursuit of weight savings. Weighing in at a feathery 150-grams for a size 42, the Pro Air is the lightest shoe we’ve ever produced and we did it without cutting corners. We joined forces with the carbon experts at Ruckus Composites to develop a revolutionary new carbon sole design that is 20-percent lighter than the impressively light Pro Road V5 sole without sacrificing stiffness. We weren’t willing to compromise durability or comfort either, so the Pro Air uses a mesh laminate upper with zonal construction to reinforce critical areas while shedding weight from regions where it isn’t needed. Despite the paltry gram count, the Pro Air is still fully-featured with a replaceable insole and lace keeper to keep the laces securely in place.
Most of us have a special bib, the one we save for the long day; this one is sure to take that honor. The PRO Air Bib Short employs a stretch weave for superior compression, support and moisture transportation. Welded and taped construction eliminates irritation-causing seams, and laser-cut fabric offers a clean finish, reducing bulk and resulting in the lightest bib short in our line. Our top-rated PRO Escape 1:1® Chamois rounds out this high-performance package.
July days just got a little cooler with our PRO Air jersey. This is the lightest, coolest jersey we’ve ever produced. Using bonded seams, we’ve eliminated the bulk from stitched seams that can chafe and hold moisture. In fact, the only sewing in the entire jersey is to separate and reinforce the three pockets. The front of this jersey is cut from a stretch weave while the back uses a sublimated knit mesh to provide ultimate breathability. We’ve slimmed the collar down for a modern profile and improved ventilation.
Recently, many top level triathletes have opted for traditional road shoes, choosing to compromise transition time for better on-course fit and feel. We set out to create the ultimate triathlon shoe by combining the performance of a traditional road shoe with the barefoot comfort and quick-entry of a purpose-built tri shoe. The result is the Tri Fly PRO, a premium podium-focused shoe designed for speed, comfort, and efficiency to make the most of race day. The upper is constructed from a combination of airy mesh and synthetic leather to maximize ventilation and support. We built this shoe on the same feather-light, ultra-stiff carbon sole as our flagship PRO Air road shoe, which also features ample sole venting for quick drying. The BOA® Fit System allows for precise two-way micro-adjustments while riding, eliminates hot spots, and creates a wide entry for rapid transitions.
