Like any physical discipline, triathlon requires a balancing act in your gear selection. Too often, though, you're forced to one extreme or the other -- comfort over stiffness; stiffness over breathability. However, we're here to tell you that Shimano has made your life easier with its new SH-WT60 Women's Shoes. Now, you have one of the fastest entry/exit systems in existence, an anatomic, customizable fit, and an outsole that toes the line between rigidity and comfort. In the world of Shimano, it simply doesn't get any better. In its SH-WT60 shoes, Shimano answered your requirements for a pair of triathlon shoes. Starting at the outsole, the WT60s feature a carbon composite construction that strikes the ideal balance between rigidity and comfort. Now, we're all raised to believe that stiffer is better, and in some cycling applications, this is absolutely true. However, it's crucial to remember that the cycling leg isn't the last thing that you're doing on race day. So, as to not limit the circulation to your feet, Shimano developed what it calls its Dynalast technology. This outsole system delivers power to the pedal, while still allowing a calculated level of flex. This is possible due to the sole's variable stiffness and density that accommodates the movements of the arch. So, when you reach T2, your feet will feel like they just got out of the water for a seamless transition to your running shoes. And on the subject of transitions, let's move on to one of the WT60's coolest features -- its closure system. Somehow, Shimano has managed to simplify the simplified with its new take on the burrito strap closure system. With a typical burrito strap, you'll find that the closure relies on a two-strap system -- one lower hook-and-loop that controls volume, and the large upper-strap for retention. However, the WT60 only requires the one burrito strap for a secure closure. So, with fewer straps to fuss with, your transition time will decrease.
