Reviews Polaris Equilibrium Tri

Polaris Equilibrium Tri

Their heritage may be steeped in the mountain bike market but recent history has witnessed Polaris diversify into road and tri. The Equilibrium is their 2011 tri-specific shoe: designed in America, made in China and sold in the UK at a mid-range price point.

It features a single reverse strap, heel loop and wide opening with no tongue to allow a wet foot to slip in easily during the rush of T1. The Equilibrium is reasonably light and ultra comfortable thanks to its wide fitting. Plus, it’s seam-free to prevent chafing. A nylon re-enforced sole isn’t going to be as stiff as carbon but, for the price, keeps the weight of the shoe down.

Niggles are that the heel loop is a touch flimsy and that the strap has no wide-end tab, so can be pulled straight through the buckle if you’re not careful. Otherwise it performs well and looks pretty bling in white and lime green.
