Who should buy the Giro Terraduro Mid
Giro improves its best-selling Terraduro shoe and elevates it for all-mountain adventures and significant enduro racing despite wet conditions. It is a solid option if you:
- Need a shoe that offers more coverage via the Ariaprene ankle collar and more protection via its beefed-up structure.
- Need a shoe that has traditional lace-ups and lace shroud provides secure fastening and water-resistance.
- Need a shoe that is engineered to endure the rugged and unpredictable nature of off-road cycling.
Thick nylon shanks
This pair’s soles are crafted from thick nylon shanks for adequate stiffness from the midfoot to the rear part, while a beneficial amount of flex is placed in the forefoot for walking comfort.
The Terraduro Mid’s excellent grip is provided by Vibram high traction lugged outsoles. The chunky and aggressive design of this shoe’s tread is crucial for better navigation of the mountain’s rocky and muddy trails.
2-bolt mountain shoe cleat system
This footwear employs the traditional 2-bolt mountain shoe cleat system. It is suitable for any SPD pedal such as the Shimano Deore XT M8020, Crank Brothers Mallet Enduro, Crank Brothers Egg BEater 3, and Time ATAC XC 8.
Water-resistant and easy to clean features
The Giro Terraduro Mid’s upper is constructed from the Evofiber microfiber. It fuses mesh and microfiber into a single entity that repels water and improves ventilation at the same time. This material is also quick drying and easy to clean.
The Evofiber microfiber upper is complemented by a lace shroud for improved water resistance and perforations for enhanced breathability.
Time-tested lace closure
The lace-up system offers a lightweight, secure fastening, and easily replaceable design. Combined with the lace shroud, breakage while in the trails is prevented.
Excellent ankle support
The asymmetric Ariaprene extension provides added support and protection without sacrificing ventilation, flexibility, and water-resistance.
This pair’s toe and heel area are reinforced to keep the foot protected from strikes, bumps, and impacts.
