The New - Tri Air Lite
The Garneau Tri Air Lite provides extreme comfort that lasts an IRONMAN distance. We took our best-selling Tri-400 shoe and gave it all the upgrades you could ever imagine. The exclusive dual X-Comfort technology delivers a snug, comfortable fit void of pressure points and eliminates collapse. With a wide opening, this silver-camo designed kick is a speed machine with Icefil, arch-supportive insoles. This revolution in tri shoes was design in cooperation with the professional athlete Lionel Sanders.
The Most Comfortable Cycling Shoes
The patented technology X-Comfort Zone allows shoes to fit two different foot widths, from C to D. This technology is available on select road and mountain bike cycling shoes.
X-Comfort : Fit Before Fonction
We've spent decades addressing power transfer and shoe weight, but the most common problem resulting in numbness and irritation is fit. Not only is shoe width a major problem, but foot volume expansion during any type of exercise has also been a neglected conversation, until now. The patent-pending technology expands to accommodate the rider's foot and foot expansion.
Step inside comfort with these three styles of road cycling shoes. The X-Comfort Zone creates a dynamic, non-constrictive fit for the foot’s natural toe splay, which improves power, reduces injuries, and creates unsurpassed comfort.
Course Air Lite II
The Course Air Lite, the reference in road cycling shoes, returns in 2018 in a stiffer version that adapts to all foot types. The new stiff Powerzone system covers the central part of the shoe, which wraps the foot to eliminate any movement when you are pulling on the pedals. So that the Course Air Lite also adapts to all types of foot arches, we’ve included the Transfo 3D insole that allows you to choose the level of arch support that best suits you. Weighing barely 7.8 oz (222 g) for a size 42 shoe, the Course Air Lite cycling shoe offers optimal comfort, spectacular performance and the highest ventilation for the least weight.
Style and performance can go hand in hand, the Platinum shoes are proof of that. They offer a look that will appeal to the rider wanting to invest in a shoe offering great value for money. The Platinum is the most accessible of the shoes featuring the Boa® fastening system which allows you to adjust your shoe evenly with just a few turns of the dial. The Platinum inherits many recent technologies until now offered on our top of the line models. The offset opening of the shoe helps reduce pressure on top of the foot while the Powerzone system keeps your foot firmly in place to prevent it from moving when you are pulling on the pedals.
Reach peak performance in the Ruby II cycling shoes – engineered to help you step it up a notch. The outsole features a patented ventilation system. The shoes tighten with a Boa® two-way micro adjustment system and hook and loop fastener foot closure. The offset opening of the shoe helps reduce pressure on top of the foot while the Powerzone system keeps your foot firmly in place to prevent it from moving when you are pulling on the pedals. The thermobonded upper is seamless for aerodynamic advantage and the elimination of pressure points, while the total weight of 278 g makes this an impressively light design for serious riders.
Fit Different Shoe Widths
The X-Comfort Zone is an expandable zone that stretches up to 5 mm to provide comfort and prevent numbness during long rides. In addition, the X-Comfort allows shoes to fit two different widths, from C to D, thanks to a ventilated elastomer-spandex insert. The X-Comfort Zone creates a dynamic, non-constrictive fit for the foot’s natural toe splay, which improves power, reduces injuries, and creates unsurpassed comfort.
Feet Swell During Exercise
When cycling, feet swell due to the increase in blood flow to the muscles. Often cyclists' remedy has been to choose shoes a little larger for added room in the toe box. To avoid slippage, dials and straps were tightened causing pressure on the tendons and restricting natural foot movement during the pedal stroke. With the X-Comfort, the area fits snug to the rider's foot and adjusts as the foot widens during pedal stroke.

''We are constantly innovating and our cycling shoes have changed the game many times over the years. In 2009, we invented patented Ergo Air® ventilated soles to reduce heat build-up. In 2016, we invented the Power Zone, a system of increased support of the arch, to achieve better energy transfer. This year, we are launching the X-Comfort Zone, a technology that increases the comfort of every cyclist by adapting to the individual anatomy of the foot.'' — Louis Garneau
''The shoes are everything I have been looking for with light and stiff soles. The X-Comfort Zone has really helped my feet be more comfortable with the extra give on the upper part of the shoe removing pressure points on my feet. You can really feel the difference on long hot days!'' — Ryan Anderson, professionnal cyclist, Rally Cycling
''Comfort, after 15 hours of cycling, takes on a new dimension. Having a bike shoe that adapts to the morphology of the foot, combining both performance and comfort, eliminates the pressure points on the outside of the foot.'' — Geoffroy D., Garneau test cyclist, traveled 4000 KM in 10 days from Belgium to Greece
