Description

Light in weight, not on features.

Just because the Tri Lite Men's Shoes are the lightest in Garneau's line doesn't mean they skimp on comfort, or that they lack the small design touches that can make a big difference over a grueling race. They weigh in around 226 grams (size 41) while offering foot stability, effective power transmission, and excellent ventilation.

All triathlon shoes are different, of course, but they all must perform one critical function--keep your feet protected from painful hotspots and blisters. After all, in triathlons, there's no putting your feet up when your bike ride is over. Garneau knows this, so they outfitted the Tri Lite Shoes with the HRS-90 heel retention system to keep your foot secure in the back of the shoe. Additionally, this system incorporates one-way stretch Lycra to provide support and keep the heel from lifting.

The Tri Lite Shoes are secured by two straps. The main, decentered Power Flex strap is angled to ensure proper arch support, reduce pressure, and provide next-to-skin fit. Because time lost in transition can be a race-killer, this strap secures from the outside of your foot inward, ensuring that it won't interfere with the crankarms when you want to get on your way first, and then strap up. The smaller strap near the toes fastens to the outside of the foot per usual; it secures the forefoot and allows you to dial in the fit.

Garneau gave the Tri Lite Shoes the X-LITE carbon outsole with its multivent system. It's Garneau's lightest outsole, but it achieves that light weight without sacrificing stiffness. It's also supremely thin, to put your foot closer to the peal. This aids power transfer, too. The upper is made of synthetic leather and nylon-laminated mesh for proper temperature regulation and durability. Coolmax Ergo Air insoles also help keep your feet from overheating and increase the shoe's ventilation properties.

The pull hoop on the back of the Tri Lite Shoe is minimalistic to save weight, but it allows you to pull the shoes on quickly and easily. The heel is emblazoned with a reflector for added visibility. The Louis Garneau Tri Lite Men's Shoes are compatible with three-bolt pedal cleat designs. They come in whole sizes from 38-48 and in half-sizes from 41.5-45.5. They're white.

Nice but runs very small in size.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

These shoes appear to be really great. Light weight and well made. Unfortunately I never got a chance to try them. The sizing is off and they run really small. Had to return and could not even exchange as the larger sizes are no longer available. Order at least once size up from what you normally wear. And these shoes aren't even Italian, so running that small in size was unexpected and disappointing. Ride safe!

Responded on

My sentiments exactly! I wear a 44 in Shimano road shoes, but when these came they were about two sizes too small - I had to order some 46s. This is strange, because I buy all my cycling clothes from LG because they fit an American, unlike Castelli which must be designed for children or little people!
