Description

By the time you hop on the bike in a triathlon, you’re already thinking of countless things: your biometrics, nutrition, the clock, and the competition. Your rig and equipment shouldn’t be on that list. One critical area of comfort, both on and after the bike, is the shoes you wear for the ride, and that’s where the Louis Garneau Tri X-Lite Shoes come in.

Working from the tarmac up with its stiff Ergo-Air carbon composite outsole, the X-Lites are incredibly breathable. Chalk that up to LG’s relentless commitment to ventilation across its entire product line. It knows that the drier your feet, the less likely you are to blister and sabotage your run when the ride ends. Helping further reduce in-shoe heat and moisture is the shoes’ mesh upper, and the wide hook-and-loop closure strap teams up with LG’s proprietary Heel Retention System to keep the foot from shifting and creating uncomfortable friction while pedaling. LG thinks of the little details, too: A small puller cord inside the shoe allows the bike to be set up with the shoes in a horizontal position for faster mounting when coming out of the water.

The Louis Garneau Tri X-Lite Shoes are compatible with any 3-bolt mounted cleat system and include the company's Coolmax Ergo Air insoles. A single size 42 shoe weighs in around 219 grams. You can order them in sizes 38 to 48 (including half sizes from 41-46) and in the color White.

  • Sandwich mesh upper
  • Hook-and-loop closure
  • Coolmax Ergo Air footbed
  • Ventilated Ergo Air carbon composite sole
  • Heel pull strap
  • Heel retention system
  • Three-hole road cleat compatibility

Best tri shoe I've ever used!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This is my third tri shoe from LG...I've never been unhappy with any of their products but this shoe is certainly my favorite. My favorite features are the VERY stiff carbon fiber sole, the upper material is very breathable and cool, having two insoles(one hot, one cold) is very helpful for those colder rides, and shoe itself is very light. I always wear them barefoot and have had no problems with any kind of hot spots or blisters. The pull tabs on the back are just the right size, easy to use when you need them but don't get in the way. I do olympic to full ironman distance races, ride 250+ miles per week, and would recommend these to any triathlete!


I also recommend buying them from backcountry.com, their staff is always very helpful when asking any questions as well as getting gear to you as quick as possible. Obviously you can't go wrong with the return policy as well!

Great shoe, bad fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Ok so I am replacing a Louis Garneau shoe I raced triathlons with for 3 seasons. They fit great and held up nicely. They were a size 44.5 which is unusual for me see as I'm a 11.5 size shoe in US sizes. I ordered the 45 thinking it was technically the right size and when it arrived I noticed it was a little too big. Ok no big deal, they have a great return policy, so I shipped them back and exchanged them for a 44.5. The 44.5 came and I took them in when I got my bike fit. I started to put the shoe on and noticed that then were way too small. My toe was at the end of toe box and these were noticeably more narrow than my previous LG's. So again I had to return them. It looks like LG no longer makes shoes the sane way and they no longer fit my foot. I am giving them 3 stars for me because I know they held up nicely before but the sizing was different and no longer fit me. If you have narrow foot these shoes would be great. Just make sure your foot isn't the same size as mine because there is no size for 11.5...
