The Factress™ Techlace™ is Giro's lightest weight women’s road shoe, featuring a revolutionary closure system that couples the benefits of laces with the convenience of a dial. The Techlace system replaces D-rings and other hardware with laces, providing a more supple feel across the forefoot, and the laces can be easily replaced if damaged. The Boa IP1 dial offers fast, intuitive adjustment in 1mm increments when tightening or loosening. The Factress Techlace has all the performance you’d expect from Giro: The upper is constructed with Evofiber SL, which is durable yet highly breathable. Inside the shoe, our SuperNatural Fit footbed features adjustable arch supports to personalize fit, comfort and pedaling efficiency. Power transfer is bolstered by the Easton®EC90 SLX2 carbon fiber outsole, which is among the lightest, thinnest and stiffest pedaling platforms on the road, giving you a direct connection to the pedals.
This extraordinary design is driven by our patent-pending Techlace system, which couples the benefits of laces with the convenience of a strap for superb fit and easy adjustment on-the-fly. By replacing D-rings and other hardware with laces, the Techlace system provides a more supple feel across the forefoot. Plus, the laces can be easily replaced if damaged. In addition to the adjustability of two straps, we’ve utilized the Boa Closure System to achieve precise adjustment and a secure feel at the top of the instep with their premium IP1 dial. Boa’s dial interface offers fast, intuitive adjustment in 1-millimeter increments when tightening or loosening.

Replacing the Techlace is easy, and takes only a moment. This video shows exactly how to perform the five basic steps: 1) uncouple the laces from the strap, 2) remove the lace ends from the coupler, 3) slide the coupler pieces off the lace and remove the laces, 4) install the new lace, and 5) slide the coupler cover back onto the laces. Like normal laces you may need to position the lace a few times to get your desired lockdown and fit, but once you have it you will not need to adjust again.
