Spiuk Sector

Price: £79 from www.silverfish-uk.com

The Sectors have been around for a few years now, but that’s to Spiuk’s credit. Too often, manufacturers tweak a quality shoe through what they perceive as commercial pressures (take note, run shoe providers!), but those updates can often result in an inferior product.

That’s not what you get here. For under £80, you get shoes loaded with triathlon-specific features including heel loops, reverse closure straps, drainage in the outsoles and mesh panelling peppered throughout for breathability. There’s also an extra loop on each instep so you can tie the shoes to your chainstays with an elastic band for faster T1 exits.

The Sectors are very comfortable – with or without socks – and provide a perfect fit. How Spiuk can create such well-rounded, affordable shoes is down to their outsoles: they’re plastic rather than carbon. As such, extra material has been added to improve their stiffness, creating a chunky outsole – but not at the cost of performance.

Verdict: Excellent shoe at a wonderful price, 90%
