Their new entry level road shoe, the ZS22R, has three velcro straps, a glass fibre and polyamide sole and a stated weight of 470g per pair (size 40). All of that for just £74.95. At £89.95, the 645g Brios adds a micro adjust buckle to a single velcro strap, over heat mouldable uppers and a glass fibre sole.
The ZS15R uses a micro adjust buckle with an Atop lacing system and has massively perforated heat mouldable uppers in black, white or red. With glass fibre soles, the shoes have a stated weight of 705g per pair and retail at £109.95. Topping the road range is the ZS15RC, which has the same uppers as the ZS15R but with two independent Atop closures and an SLX1 carbon fibre sole. Coming in red/white or green/black, stated weight is a mere 470g and the price is a reasonable £169.95.
Off-roaders aren’t forgotten, either. The £109.95 ZS15M has a glass fibre sole with rubber tread and front fitting, heat mouldable uppers and a reinforced toe and heel, and is secured by a front velcro strap and Atop closure. Colours are black or white, and stated weight is 820g.
The rubber sole on the ZS15M
MTB racers should take a look at the ZS15MC, which uses the same uppers as the ZS15M but with a pair of Atop closures, plus a full carbon sole, an aggressive-looking tread pattern and stud fixings. The weight drops to 600g, and the shoe comes in black only and will set you back £169.95.
Triathletes can choose between the new Sector entry-level shoe at £79.99, which offers a glass fibre and polyamide sole, a pair of velcro straps, a heat mouldable inner and a weight of 680g (size 42). The high performance SEC-SEG complements the Sector’s features, with a carbon sole, reinforced heel and lower weight of 495g (size 42) for £169.99. The SEC-SEG also has a neat loop at the rear of the arch, for holding the shoes level on the bike in transition.
