Gaerne Carbon G. Stilo Speedplay Road Shoes
If you demand the very best Speedplay-specific road shoe, and high performance that's synonymous with high fashion, you demand the Italian Gaerne Carbon G. Stilo Speedplay Road Shoes.

The new full carbon Gaerne EPS 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. 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. Its sole is compatible with Speedplay clipless pedals.

The BOA IP-1 closure system has triple functionality: to close the right shoe, turn the reel clockwise, and to open it, turn it counterclockwise. Just lift the reel to fully open the shoe. It's hexagonal shape and rubberized finish makes it easy to grip, which makes for lightning fast adjustments.
  • Dual BOA IP-1 closure system for uniform fastening, no pressure points and greater air circulation
  • EPS Light Weight Full Carbon sole for absolute lightness and rigidity
  • Laser perforations and mesh panels in synthetic leather upper for optimal ventilation
  • Perforated tongue for better internal airflow with a cushioning layer for increased comfort
  • U-Control Heel System provides foot stability and control
  • Ultra-lightweight insole is comfortable, breathable and replaceable
  • Anti-slip rubber insert on the sole provide off-the-bike traction on slick surfaces
  • Includes nylon drawstring bag to tote shoes when you're on the go
  • Handmade in Italy

    Comments about Gaerne Carbon G. Stilo Speedplay Road Shoes:

    Beautiful shoe. Sizing is a little big compared to Lake. I had Lake 44 and the Gaerne 44 is a bit larger but not too much. Boa system works well and the Speedplay specific sole is the only way to go with Speedplay pedals. Not cheap, even though I got them on sale, but worth every penny. Very happy with them.

      Comments about Gaerne Carbon G. Stilo Speedplay Road Shoes:

      This is a pretty fabulous road cycling shoe. The construction is very high-quality and light-weight. There are carbon fiber panels on most of the high-wear points, so I have high hopes regarding durability (barring crashes).

      The velcro strap across the toes is interesting. I'm guessing it'll come more into play during sprints than just riding along. Unless you're a sprinter, maybe save a few dollars with the G. Chrono. The Boa lacing system is way better than previous generations. Very comfortable and secure, you can tighten, loosen, and release them very easily. I didn't notice any hot spots from the lacing, but when you put them on, be sure the laces are over the plastic of the tongue, not in the fabric joints.

      The fit is slipper-like, but huge. Seriously huge. I wear a 44 (just under size 10) in most cycling shoes. Due to weird sizing, I wear a 42,5 in Northwave. Almost the same sizing here. A 42,5 felt a tad small, but a 43 feels a tad large. With my insoles, 43 is the way to go.

      Performance-wise, these are perfect. No creaks or slips during riding or sprinting. Speedplay Walkable Cleats went on with no problems and offered a wide range of adjustment.

        Comments about Gaerne Carbon G. Stilo Speedplay Road Shoes:

        I have been buying Gaerne shoes because they last longer than the super light weight specialized shoes I had to replace each season due to wear. Gaernes have been great because their insides and outsides do not deform after lots of use in extreme wet and hot conditions, they take a beating no matter which model you choose. I chose to write a review to explain why these shoes are the next best thing from Gaerne, wider toe box and Speedplay specific. compared to the other top of the line model the Chrono- this Stilo has a wider toe box. This makes the same size feel comfy right out of the box, no year to brake it in so you still get the same great heel cup fit but without pinching your toes. the inners are comfy without needing inserts, they are very hard so you have good feedback to allow your body to work properly but since the shoe has alot of support around the heel you do no slosh around and get tense feet looking for stability. Buy Gaernes if you want a shoe that will last and look raw years down the road. I think having one pair of awesome shoes for years and years is cooler than buying the latest thing every year.
