Easton EC70 outsole technology

The Raes Techlace features the Easton EC70 outsole technology. Giro’s sister company called Easton makes it. This outsole technology is made from a carbon/glass composite material. The combination provides sufficient stiffness for good power transfer and flexibility for walking comfort.

Giro Raes Techlace Outsole

Excellent ventilation and replaceable heel pads

This shoe features a ventilation hole. This hole is a carved out pocket in the outsole and is screened with steel hardware.

Heel pads provide stability and traction off the bike. These are usually the first ones to wear out. With this model’s renewable heel pads, the users are offered great value for their money as it lengthens the lifespan of the shoe.

Giro Raes Techlace's cleat system

Designed as a road cycling shoe, the Giro Raes Techlace naturally employs a three-bolt cleat design. This cleat system is deemed to be more appropriate for road cycling than the two-bolt iteration. Why? Because it provides a more secure connection to the pedal, and road terrains almost never have obstacles that require the rider to often clip out of the pedal. Try the following pedal designs with the Raes Techlace: Shimano PD-M520, Look Keo 2 Max Blade 12, Shimano Ultegra SPD-SL R8000, Speedplay Zero, and Time Xpresso 15.

Techlace technology

This pair employs a combination of two innovative closures: Techlace and BOA L6 dial. The Techlace technology secures the mid and forefoot. It features the comfort of laces and the convenience of the strap. The straps are meant to replace any hardware that comes with laces to provide a supple feel across the foot.

The BOA L6 dial simultaneously locks the foot down by securing the top foot. It offers 1mm increments when tightening and easy pull-to-release function for easy on and off.

Breathable and comfortable upper

Crafted with the Evofiber technology, this pair makes use of the best attributes of mesh and microfiber. These two materials are welded and bonded into a single fabric. Together they repel water and provide proper ventilation throughout.

Giro Raes Techlace Upper

The one-piece upper construct helps eliminate unnecessary seams and adhesives that cause rubbing and hotspots. It also helps get rid of excess weight.

Enhanced durability 

Equipped with toe and heel microfiber reinforcements, the shoe’s durability is enhanced. They also provide added structure to the shoe and offers excellent stability to the wearer.
