Giro Empire SLX Road Shoes

The Giro Empire SLX is, quite simply, one of the lightest and stiffest road shoes that money can buy. The one piece, synthetic leather upper, Easton unidirectional carbon sole and titanium hardware combine to give a shoe that's at home on epic climbs, in bunch sprints or in the pro peloton.

Using the latest in fabric technology, Giro has given us Evofiber™. Seams are eliminated to give you a shoe that's exceptionally comfortable, extremely durable and remarkably light. Evofiber™ repels water and offers increased breathability to keep your feet in top condition.

Put aside your preconceived notions about laces on cycling shoes, if you will. There is no other closure method that's as precise and customisable as laces. Seven points of contact allow the shoe to be fitted precisely to your instep. The Empire's sport laces are designed to stay closed and can be neatly tidied away once tied.

The Easton EC90 SLX2 high modulus outsole is constructed from strong and light, unidirectional carbon. This, combined with an ultra-low stack height, allows every last watt of power to be transferred straight to the pedals. Heel pads can be replaced when worn and titanium hardware saves even more weight.

The insole is equally as impressive. Giro's SuperNatural Fit System allows you to fully adjust the arch for the right amount of support for you. No moulding in ovens, simply tear off the arch and replace with the one that suits you.

A low heel gives your foot an optimal lock, to eliminate any inefficiencies and a tapered front gives your toes some 'wiggle room'. X-Static fibers use natural silver to conduct heat and prevent any odour causing bacteria.

Whether you're a professional cyclist, a keen amateur racer or avid climber, the Empire SLX is a premium quality shoe that won't disappoint.

“These are some of the best cycling shoes we've ever used.”
