Lighter, stiffer and more comfortable. To develop this sole, Giro has used the expertise of the carbon specialist Easton®. The result is a sole that offers maximum stiffness without compromising on weight, comfort or fit – which perfectly meets the requirements of professional riders. Every sole is developed
to offer best stiffness in the toe, foot arch and heel area. The soles come with the lowest possible stack height (6.5 mm around the cleat holes, otherwise lower) This extremely low sole profile allows for a seamless unity between shoe and sole without compromising on fit. The upper perfectly wraps around your foot. The neutral platform supports your natural foot position while pedalling.

The abrasion-resistant rubber sole primarily stands out for high grip. Thanks to a special tread design, it is optimised for use on harshest terrain and promises high grip on slippery and muddy ground.

If you want to prevent numb feet while riding, you should make sure your shoes feature a good foot arch support, since this is the key for comfort, power transfer and efficiency. The Giro SuperNatural Fit System is the fastest way to individually adjust the cycling shoe to perfectly fit your foot. It combines a cycling-specific insole with an easily adjustable foot arch support thanks to replaceable inserts. At that, the SuperNatural Fit Kit provides best heel support and keeps your foot as close to the pedal as possible. For a whole new pedal feel and increased performance! The upper is made from antimicrobial X-Static fibres.
