Giro Manta Lace: A women-specific, retro MTB shoe
In a market saturated with mostly male-based bike shoes, female-exclusive models are considered rare and special by many lady cyclists. One of these is the Giro Manta Lace MTB shoe. It is equipped with a last designed explicitly after the women's naturally narrower foot shape, which provides an optimal fit for the ladies.
Aside from the female-centric last, this shoe is also symbolic of being the retro version of the brand's Manta R model. The Manta Lace was born out of the demand for a lace-up rendition of the well-loved Manta R shoe.
Moreover, it is designed with essential mountain biking features, such as the following:
- One-piece microfiber upper - prevents hot spots and yields optimal comfort
- Reinforced toe cap and heel - protection against impacts and enhances durability
- Lace-up closure with lace tuck - retro design and time-tested lockdown
- Injected nylon plate and rubber outsole - adequate power transfer and high traction
Who is it for? The Manta Lace is suitable for the following cyclists:
- Leisure mountain biker
- Gravel rider
- Indoor cyclists
- Urban bike commuter
