The Imperial's Synchwire upper features Boa® IP1 dials and soft lace guides, which allow you to adjust your fit on the fly while reaping the benefits of the shoes light weight. Thermal-welded Teijin® TPU adds structural support exactly where it's needed, and a high-modulus Easton® EC90 SLX2 carbon fiber plate provides ultimate stiffness-to-weight for power transfer. Our adjustable Super Natural Fit footbed system is the final touch, allowing you to customize arch support right out of the box for luxurious comfort and optimal pedaling efficiency.
- SYNCHWIRE - Synchwire construction is a stitch-less upper that's vented and reinforced to create a lightweight cycling shoe with incredible airflow and structural integrity. Synchwire is an advanced composite of thermo-bonded film that provides overall durability, a non-woven internal sheet for distributing the force from the BOA® system to the upper for direct power transfer, and mono-filament mesh for ventilation.
- BOA® FIT SYSTEM - The Boa® Fit System provides fast, micro-adjustability with the turn of the dial. The combination of the dial, lace, and guides reduces weight and provides finer adjustment (1mm increments) compared to traditional buckles, and it offers an incremental release function too. The Boa Fit System dials and laces are guaranteed for the lifetime of the product.
- EASTON CARBON SOLE - 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 extensive test lab, every outsole is engineered to provide ideal stiffness in 3 zones: Toe, Arch, and Heel, while maintaining the lowest possible weight and stack-height (as low as 6.5mm). Additionally, the flatter edges of our outsoles allow the shoe upper material to conform to larger or wider feet (what we call the "spillover" effect) without uncomfortable pinching or binding.
- SUPERNATURAL FIT KIT WITH ADJUSTABLE ARCH SUPPORT - The Giro SuperNatural Fit System combines a cycling-specific footbed with an adjustable arch support kit. By simply choosing from any of the Low, Medium and High arch supports included in the kit, riders and fitters can independently adjust arch support to enhance fit and pedaling efficiency while reducing or eliminating common discomforts like hotspots, numbness and cramping. The system is available in men's and women's sizes, and incorporates X-Static® fibers in the footbed to fight odors and other bacteria.
Fit perfect, comfortable from the first ride. I had no idea what a difference good riding shoes would make.
