While the cost difference between the Cosmic Elite and Ultimate Tri shoe is fairly substantial when it comes to performance, the gap narrows considerably and we can think of some great places to reallocate those funds, namely race entries and nutrition. If you're the self-supporting type of triathlete looking for some new shoes that will have your back, or feet rather, as you set your aim at PR's in sprint races all the way up to full distance events, have a look at the Men's Cosmic Elite Tri Shoes from Mavic. With features like wide openings, helping feet easily slip in with the aid of an oversized heel loop and foot security, via Mavic's large and easily adjustable Ergo Tri Strap, you'll be in and out of the transitions in no time. The Cosmic Elite Tri shoes feature an Energy Comp Outsole that's constructed from nylon and reinforced with fiberglass. Its thinness reduces stack height for more fluid pedaling and efficiency. Carbon soles get most of the notoriety these days, and while it does surrender slight stiffness to the Ultimate Tri's full carbon sole, it also provides a bit of engineered flex to greatly improve comfort, which we're sure you'll appreciate at the end of 112 miles as you head out for a marathon. Additional comfort and support comes courtesy of the removable Ergo fit OrthoLite insole. We'll forgive you if you almost forget to take them off for the run. The upper is constructed from a durable yet supple synthetic microfiber offering a comfortable fit and ventilation with strategically placed, laser cut holes helping to increase airflow and breathability. Additionally, the lightweight mesh upper helps wick away water and dries quickly when transitioning from the swim.
