Giro footwear is famous for fit and comfort, and the Code Techlace Shoes are no exception. Giro crafts a race-bred shoe for riders who want efficient power transfer without sacrificing durability on rugged trails and harsh conditions. First launched on its road shoes, the revolutionary Techlace system comes to dirt, combining the comfort of laces with the convenience of a strap for dialing in a near-custom fit with easy adjustments on-the-fly. By replacing D-rings and other hardware with laces, the Techlace system provides a better fit across the forefoot and as a bonus, the laces can be easily replaced if damaged. Improving upon the adjustability of the two-strap system, Giro partnered with Boa to offer precise adjustments and a secure feeling at the top of the instep using its L6 dial, providing adjustment in 1mm increments when tightening. The upper features Giros proprietary one-piece Evofiber microfiber for a superb fit that conforms to your foot and doesnt stretch over time. Perforations provide adequate ventilation when the mercury rises, and an adjustable SuperNatural Fit Kit reaffirms that focus on internal comfort by letting you custom-tune the insole with three different arch support inserts. The Easton EC70 carbon composite sole offers pro-level stiffness that remains comfortable on hike-a-bike sections and while running between the barriers. A low, 6. 5mm stack height reduces the amount of material between foot and pedal for efficient power transfer and quick clip-ins. The sole is finished with a tough and grippy Vibram rubber outsole that provides protection and traction anytime youre not clipped in. Each shoe also includes fittings for two toe spikes for extra traction when you really need to dig in.
