Easton® Carbon Composite Outsole
Undirectional carbon fiber outsole is engineered to provide a direct connection with the pedal, thanks to class-leading stiffness that puts full effort into forward motion.
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 the shoes can all be dramatically improved. Evofiber also holds shape exceptionally well, and is fast drying and easy to clean.
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.
Vibram® is the world leader in high performance rubber soles, with technologically advanced compounds like IdroGrip, the stickest moldable compound in the vibram arsenal and developed specifically for flatpedal 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.
