Reviews dhb Tri Road

dhb Tri Road

dhb has received many plaudits for fantastic value in terms of bang for your buck. Here’s an option that’ll surely be appropriate for these credit-crunching times, right?

While this was the case for the R1 road shoe, unfortunately we cannot extend the same praise to the Tri Road.
There are shared components [with the R1] such as the outsole, which is sufficient and will accept just about all cleat options.

But the upper is a poor fit, making it difficult to achieve a secure feel. The strap, for example, has a tendency to slip through its loop and that could cost a disastrous few seconds in T1. There’s also a Velcro section extending longitudinally from the toe box to the strap that regularly snags, reducing the opening size. The materials, not surprisingly, have a cheap feel with a coarse sock liner leading to an uncomfortable experience.
