Bontrager has released a revamp of its popular Triple X Road Shoe today. The new version is the top-shelf choice in Bontrager’s shoe offering, and it delivers the best in performance, fit and style to road racers the world over.
The updated design of the Triple X Road Shoe was informed by feedback from Trek-Segafredo pros and features a new construction, new materials and a more refined fit.
Like its predecessor, the new Triple X keeps the hard-working dual Boa closure system – but it’s improved with a medial to lateral foot wrap construction, neoprene flex zones around the tongue and a superior Form TX lace-routing pattern that reduces pressure on the top of the foot.
The shoe also features 360° of perforation and better ventilation in the toe box, along with an external heel cup that delivers more stability and a better lock when riders are punching the pedals on a sprint or climb.
“Triple X is renowned for its durability, stiff plate and great style,” says April Beard, Bontrager Director of Product for Helmets and Shoes. “With the new version, we took all the best parts of our much-loved design and improved on them, giving road racers a top-shelf option that has the absolute best in performance and luxury.”April Beard, Bontrager Director of Product for Helmets and Shoes.
