Features and technical details
Giro Latch MTB Cycling ShoesBanks, berms, rocks, roots, ruts and tail whips. When you're on the edge of control and pushing your mountain bike limits, the Latch MTB Cycling Shoes keep you firmly and confidently connected to your pedals. For rowdy trail riding days, the Latch MTB Cycling Shoes ensure you'll always benefit from a secure and confidence grip of your flat pedals. Teaming up with expert rubber engineers, the Giro Team looked to create a sole unit that gives unshakable support, grip and comfort. The result was Tack™ Rubber and Mute™ Foam. Unshakeable Pedal GripTack™ Rubber is used to create the sole unit. This highly elastic rubber offers a forceful hold on the pedals so you can be full of confidence when flying into technical trails. It's moulded into Giro's Gamma tread design, creating a sole that offers an unrivalled grip of pedal pins. At the heart of the Latch shoes, you'll also find the Mute™ Foam. This high-performance midsole has been devised to give a slow rebound action, sinking up the chatter and vibration of the trail. Regardless of the trail, from ruts to roots to rocks to heavy landings, this keeps you securely connected and in control of your bike. Pedal-Ready-FitIt's not just the sole that's tuned to give you superb performance on the pedals. The upper has also had attention to improving the fit and feel of mountain bike shoes. The fit brings your foot closer to the sole and with the flatter sole profile, optimises the contact patch on flat pedals.A premium Microfibre is used to give all-weather performance and one that will dry quickly between MTB sessions - after a wet ride you can look forward to no more soggy feet on your next ride out. The smooth upper also features ventilation holes to maintain airflow and allow sweat to escape when the going gets hot. The Rockprint™ reinforced toe provides protection from debris kicked up off the trail and prevents bumps and bruises from hidden rock and root strikes. Lastly, the ever-dependable lace closure works whatever the weather and keeps bulk to a minimum. A lace keeper keeps them out of your drivetrain too.
