Cycling is cycling, whether you’re out for a cruise of doing your first triathlon, but tris do go more smoothly with a little help from specific gear like the Inciter Men’s Tri Shoes. They’re Giro’s entry-level tri shoe, sure, but they pack plenty of detail into a smart design that’s made for triathlons but capable of being ridding almost every day. The microfiber and air mesh upper is soft, smooth, and supple, so it wraps around your foot and provides loads of ventilation, and two hook-and-loop straps allow for easy fit adjustment in T1 and when you’re in the saddle. A loop at the heel lets you easily pull the Inciter on, so you don’t waste valuable seconds struggling, and the antimicrobial EVA footbed supports your arch while it fights off odor. At the bottom of the shoe, an injected nylon sole strikes a nifty balance between power and flexibility, so you can pedal hard without killing your feet, and the cleat setup is compatible with both 2- and 3-hole offerings, so you can even take the Inciter onto the trails if you want one shoe for triathlons, road rides, and a little cyclocross on the side.
