Gaerne Carbon G. Chrono Speedplay Road Shoes
Incredible Italian craftsmanship and a Speedplay specific carbon sole; one look at the Gaerne Carbon G. Chrono Speedplay road shoes and you know they are not your average road shoes. Crammed full of technology and great looks, the CGC's pack incredible fire power for any long weekend ride or race. An all-new Gaerne full carbon sole guarantees absolute lightness and rigidity. The ultra-thin thickness of the carbon allows the foot to be positioned at a minimal distance from the pedal, thus allowing maximum power whilst pedaling without loss of energy.

The Carbon G. Chrono shoes are incredibly comfortable as well. Two channels positioned in the sole ensure perfect ventilation to the foot during use. Non-slip rubber inserts in the front and back of the sole provide security whilst walking. The rear insert is replaceable. The sole is only compatible with Speedplay clipless pedals.

Comments about Gaerne Carbon G. Chrono Speedplay Road Shoes:

Bought these for two reasons:
1st. Italian made. Not designed in, graphic placed in, etc. 100% Italy. Not producing in China is important to me. The Lotto team uses them, btw. 2nd: Speedplay specific sole allows the closest pedal:shoe sole ratio possible. Yes, you can feel the difference - more in tune with the bike, snappy reaction, less fatigue over long rides due to the lower weight. No doubt you'll have to lower your saddle & stem with this shoe - it's a noticeable difference.

They are incredibly light following the trend of synthetic, shiny, uppers. This material is really thin and in my case, just too flymsy. I like/need a more stout upper to hold my feet in place. I prefer the feeling that the shoe is going to last/hold up. I don't have doubts on the quality, I just prefer more material - think sidi wire.

While the above was not a deal breaker, it was the fit that I couldn't work around. It was just too volumeous for my foot. Even with my custom insole, the edges nearly met each other when tightened all the way down. Full disclosure - I have a low volume - not narrow - foot. Brands like DMT & Sidi are better suited & I will be going back to SIDI because of this.

If you have a standard sized foot & are looking for a high quality, incredibly lightweight, Italian shoe, this is for you. If you ride Speedplay, and have a standard foot, this is the shoe for you.
