Three-bolt cleat system

Just like most road cycling shoes, the Giro Factor Techlace features a three-bolt cleat system. Three-bolt mounts are said to offer a more secure connection to the pedals compared to the 2-bolt version.

Fast adjustment, supple feel, and replaceable closure system

The Techlace system utilizes hardware laces for a snugger fit across the foot. The laces are also replaceable if damaged. Coupled with the Techlace is the BOA IP1 dial, which offers a fast and easy adjustment. The dial could be adjusted in 1mm increments on both tightening and loosening. It also features a macro release for immediate release.
