The Trivent Triathlon shoe was a collaborative design between Specialized and the world’s fastest triathlete, Peter Reid. With the use of the Body Geometry technology, the ventilation system in the Trivent functions to keep its users feet dry and cool.
The Trivent has a patented Body Geometry outsole and footbed design. the carbon outsole has chromed fibers that acts as a shield to prevent heat from reaching your feet. The fibers reflects the heat back to the road.
The footbed is perforated to allow easy airflow and the sole is ventilated with an open mesh upper and molded toe. There is also a shoehorn heel pull on the inside of the heel so it can be slipped on and off easily during a race. A wide main strap also does the same.
The Trivent has a 3-bolt cleat pattern that is compatible with Shimano SPD®-SL, Look®, Time®, and Speedplay®. It weighs approximately 590 grams (size 42) and retails for $90.00 and comes in the color of white/silver.
