Every second counts in a triathlon. Keeping this in mind, footwear brands face the challenge of creating a shoe that isn’t just supportive and comfortable, but can make transitioning easier during a race. Enter, the Zoot Ultra Tiempo 5.0.

Like the Zoot Ultra Race 4.0, the Ultra Tiempo 5.0 is designed to get triathletes in and out of their sneakers faster and more easily. While the Tiempo 5.0 doesn’t have the BOA closure system like the Ultra Race, it still has a QuickLace system to make T2 a breeze. The latest version of the Zoot Tiempo series features a lighter, much stronger CarbonSpan+ construction that promotes a more efficient toe-off. A Z-Bound cushioning midsole provides runners with a greater energy return, reducing fatigue in the process.
