Review: Pearl Izumi Try Fly IV Carbon tri-bike shoes
Great value, extremely comfortable and friendly for long-course feet
Developed with Ironman legend Tim DeBoom, the plush Try Fly IVs are very comfortable shoes and definitely suited to the long haul.
They tip the scales at 303g, power transfer and stiffness from the carbon soles is excellent with no hint of hotspots, and both drainage and ventilation are good.
Out of transition, the main closure straps don’t give you a huge gape for fast feet entry but they still function smoothly, while the leather heel loops are a good size.
Once in, you’ve no worries of straps rubbing on cranks and the tabs are very easy to locate for undoing as you roll into T2. If you’re running with your bike, toe bumpers and replaceable heel bumpers ensure you don’t need to worry about scuffing your shoes.
