Giro Rincon vs. Giro Sector

These Giro MTB shoes share their duty of offering versatile cycling in the mountains. However, the Sector is considered a more upscale model as it possesses more elite characteristics.

  • The two shoes employ a breathable and supple Synchwire upper for all-day comfort.
  • Both display a sleek design that would look stylish on and off the road.
  • The Rincon uses a single BOA and Velcro strap retention system, while the Sector has dual BOA dials for a more innovative and accurate fit.
  • The mid-level Rincon provides low-visibility safety, thanks to its reflective heel tab.
  • The Sector utilizes a stiffer carbon composite outsole versus Rincon's nylon composite outsole.
