Giro releases new Prolight Techlace shoes

Giro Sport Design has announced the official release of its Prolight Techlace shoe.

First teased at the Eurobike tradeshow, the ultra-high performance shoe utilizes a three-strap Techlace Pro closure system and Technical Mesh upper material for comfort and breathability, together with a TeXtreme carbon fiber outsole to deliver a sub-150g shoe in size 42.5.

“Giro is dedicated to pushing the limits of professional-level gear,” said Giro Footwear product manager Simon Fisher. “We wanted to make the absolute lightest shoe possible, but it still had to be comfortable for three weeks of five hour stages and, at the same time, deliver the efficient power transfer pros demand.

“The Prolight Techlace is a testament to Giro’s unique R&D capabilities, the depth of our partnerships with the world’s fastest riders, and our ability to create innovative materials and technologies to achieve our performance goals.”

The Prolight Techlace is available now from www.giro.com and authorized Giro dealers. UK pricing is yet to be confirmed.
