Pearl Izumi Tri Fly III
Weight (per pair, size 44) 548g
Pearl Izumi’s affordable Tri Fly III shoes were one of the best-liked on test, making them a top comfort bargain. There’s good support on the sole and arch, and while the heel cup is comfortably soft rather than hard plastic, it’s deep enough to hold the foot in place, even when straining a big gear. The main strap is broad to ensure comfort, even when cranked up, and the lower toe strap ensures the forefoot stays comfortably in place. The notched strap doesn’t hold the shoe open wide, but it’s fast to shut. The fabric heel tab gives an easy grab, and it’s reflective. Open-top design with a single mesh-covered drain vent under the toes feels fresh. Sole stiffness is good for the height and price, and there’s a solid carbon-soled version for £169.99.
Excellent, supportively comfortable fit and full tri feature list, at a bargain price.
