Northwave triathlon bike shoes are cycling shoes designed to best meet the various requirements of triathletes. They feature the same cleat system as a bike shoe, the same rigid sole and, generally, the same shape. However, there are technical solutions specially designed for this sport, such as the wide opening, allowing the foot to be easily slipped into the shoe and locked onto the pedal, minimising transition times. The simplest and most long-standing innovation is the heel loop, designed to make the shoe easier to put on when the shoe is already mounted on the pedal or on the transition towel after the swimming session. Furthermore, velcro makes it possible to better secure the fastening, allowing the foot to remain rooted in position.
