◌Giro Imperial Road ShoesProfessional performance meets all-day comfort and unrivalled ventilation, placing the Giro Imperial Road Shoes on the top step of the podium when racing and training. Lightweight shoes are all very well but they can often lack the support needed for a stable pedalling platform, leading to loss of efficiency. Giro has tackled this by combining their highly innovative One-piece Synchwire upper with the impressively stiff Easton EC90 SLX2 high-modulus carbon sole unit, providing a supportive shoe with optimal power transfer and remarkably low weight.Synchwire UpperThe proprietary Synchwire upper construction is what provides the foot support and stability needed for efficient pedalling. A combination of an ultralight monofilament mesh, reinforced with thermal-welded Teijin TPU lets Giro strip out the weight, boost ventilation and yet still maintain durability where you need it and a supportive hold across the whole foot. This design hits the sweet spot between low weight, support for fluid pedalling and a high degree of breathability for those hot days on the bike when even the tarmac begins to melt. Precision BOA IP1 AdjustmentA secure and comfortable fit is achieved via the double BOA IP1 dials. On the fly adjustment is incredibly quick and easy, a twist of the dial offering up 1mm of micro-adjustment per click. With the Boa chord running in reinforced webbing runners you'll enjoy a smooth closure and a snug fit that eliminates hot spots and pinch points.EC90 SLX2 High-Modulus Carbon SoleThen comes the heart of any performance cycling shoe - the outsole. Here you'll find Giro's high-modulus Easton EC90 SLX2, delivering perfect stiffness-to-weight so you enjoy optimal power transfer to the pedals and minimal flex. While it's not the lightest sole unit Giro make it has the durability to stand up to your daily training and hard riding weekend races. Inside the shoe, the adjustable Super Natural Fit footbed system provides optimal pedalling efficiency with customizable arch support for performance and luxurious comfortThe result of this blend of light and airy upper, Boa fit system and stiff but durable carbon sole is a race-ready shoe which provides the perfect pedalling platform for smooth power transfer and maximum pedalling efficiency.
