Admirable work ethic.Regular training rides and long days in the saddle call for shoes that will keep your feet from feeling the miles while helping all of the power from your legs reach the pedals. Diadora's hardworking Trivex Plus II Shoes aptly fit this description, and with trickle-down technology from their pricier, top-tier counterparts, they'll leave you money left in your budget for other upgrades.Diadora uses its lightweight Suprell-Mesh to construct the synthetic uppers, adding ample mesh paneling and perforations to ensure air reaches your toes as you descend after long, hot climbs. These uppers are shaped around Diadora's women's-specific last, which teams with a molded heel cup and a more tapered shape to hold narrower heels in place throughout the pedal stroke. While Trivex Plus II's more palatable price means the absence of a Boa dial, the ratcheting buckle paired with two hook-and-loop straps allow for a wide range of fit adjustments before a ride and from the saddle to ward off painful pressure points.To provide you with responsive power transfer, Diadora includes its composite-reinforced Performance Road outsole. It's not as unyielding as full carbon would be, but with it, your feet will enjoy a stable, solid platform through which to transfer power and turn the pedals while you ride.
