The lightest road shoes in the world are also the most technically advanced. Meet the Giro Prolight Techlace, the only 150-gram cycling shoe, which combines outstanding comfort and pro-level performance.
The weight savings started at the bottom, with a sole made of Textreme carbon fiber. Woven in flat sheets instead of threads, Textreme is a carbon fiber that's ultra-stiff, yet lighter because it requires less resin. In fact, in Giro's shoe outsoles, it has the same stiffness profile as the Easton SLX II outsole found in the Factor Techlace and Empire SLX -- but with a 22% weight savings.
The Prolight Techlace has an ultralight upper made with a technical monofilament mesh with Teijin TPU welded reinforcement that doesn't stretch under power. To keep you secure, the Techlace closure system has 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. And to keep you comfortable, the Prolight Techlace has X-Static fibers, which use natural silver to provide heat conductive and anti-microbial properties.
