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).

Evofiber takes the best attributes of mesh and microfiber, and fuses them into a single fabric that repels water and improves breathability throughout the shoe. By eliminating the extra seams and adhesives required to insert mesh panels, the durability, comfort, and weight of our shoes all can be dramatically improved. Evofiber also holds shape exceptionally well, and is fast-drying and easy to clean.

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.

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.
