The Powerstrap promotes efficient closure

Many triathletes applaud this model's efficient closure and its ability for quick on and off, making it ideal for faster transitions. No hassle at all! The Powerstrap of the Transiro Powerstrap R4 can even be locked in a wide-open position to make it easier for cyclists to wear the shoe.

Wide-footers should look away

These shoes were not made with wide feet in mind. Many have commented that they are too narrow and in most cases sizing up did not help. What did help in some cases was making sure the shoe is properly broken in. It takes time for the comfort and fit to come together.
