The Emire VR70 Knit mountain bike shoe features our new engineered Xnetic Knit upper, which offers unparalleled comfort and breathability, with a bonded TPU exoskeletal system to provide support where you need it.

The upper is DWR-treated for water repellency and easy cleaning, while a rubber toe guard and bonded TPU heel increase durability and abrasion resistance. A closed stretch-knit ankle cuff provides superior comfort, additional support, and protection from scree out on the trail. All of this is built on top of a stout Easton® EC70 carbon fiber sole that offers pro-level stiffness, and a tough, molded Vibram® rubber outsole that provides protection and grip when you're off the bike.

Features

SuperNatural Fit System
The Giro SuperNatural Fit System includes an adjustable arch support kit with Low, Medium, and High arch supports. You can adjust arch support to enhance fit and pedaling efficiency while reducing the chances of common discomforts like hotspots, numbness, and cramping.

Easton Carbon Composite Outsole
We worked closely with the engineering staff at Easton® to develop proprietary outsoles that provide the most direct, powerful connection to the pedals without compromising comfort. Using advanced modeling and proprietary fixturing in our test lab, every outsole is engineered to provide ideal stiffness in three zones—Toe, Arch, and Heel—while maintaining the lowest weight and stack height (as low as 6.5mm).

Vibram
Vibram® is the world leader in high-performance rubber soles, with technologically advanced compounds like IdroGrip, the stickiest moldable compound in the Vibram arsenal, developed specifically for flat-pedal riding in dry and wet conditions; and Megagrip, a high-performance sticky compound with significantly more durability and only a minimal decrease in friction compared to IdroGrip. All Vibram soles are produced with three objectives: to guarantee the best performance, the maximum level of comfort, and quality over time.

Laced Closure
In addition to infinite adjustability and the ability to conform to each zone of the foot, laces offer easy replacement and customization, a more natural feel across the foot and reliability in even the most adverse conditions. Our tubular woven laces are designed to be highly durable, light and to hold a knot securely without slipping.

Xnetic Knit
Xnetic Knit uppers feature a TPU skeletal system bonded to a knit material, providing support where you need it while the knit offers suppleness and breathability for sock-like comfort and superb ventilation. Xnetic Knit also is DWR-treated for water repellency and easy cleaning, and reinforced with rubber or TPU toe / heel guards to enhance abrasion resistance and durability.
