Who should buy the Giro Prolight Techlace
When the company was designing the Giro Prolight Techlace, the main agenda was to push the envelope when it comes to how light bike shoes could get. It is a solid option if you:
- Need a shoe that is light as the Prolight Techlace. The brand has chosen one-of-a-kind materials that could help shed every gram possible.
- Need a shoe that is crafted from mesh with welded Teijin TPU film for lightness, breathability, and a bit of reinforcement.
- Need a shoe that has TeXtreme carbon fiber outsole designed with relatively lesser materials and responsible for power transfer.
Prolight Techlace’s feather-like weight outsole
The Prolight Techlace’s feather-like weight is made possible thanks to outsoles made from TeXtreme Advanced carbon fiber materials. Instead of fibers woven into threads, this design is woven in flat sheets, which uses less resin and therefore saves weight. This pair utilizes titanium hardware, which is lighter than the usual ones used in bike shoes.
This feature helps extend a pair’s life and refreshes traction. Vent pockets are placed underneath the toes to work in conjunction with the upper to provide excellent breathability.
Traditional 3-bolt road cleat design
The Giro Prolight Techlace employs the traditional 3-bolt road cleat design. Some recommended road pedals to go with this shoe are Look Keo 2 Max Blade, Time Xpresso 6, and Shimano 105 SPD. The positioning of the cleat system is fixed and cannot be adjusted.
Teijin TPU films
The Prolight Techlace is crafted from monofilament mesh with welded Teijin TPU films. The main goal for the employment of this material is for an uber light and breathable fit.
Employing the Techlace system, adjusting the fit of this shoe is quick and convenient. Made up of Velcro and laces, this fastening doesn’t use any hardware, which ultimately helps shed weight as well.
Ultralight SuperNatural Fit Kit
The Pro Techlace shoe features the Ultralight SuperNatural Fit Kit. The level of support can be customized via three foams labeled as S, M, and L. These foams can be attached and detached via Velcro.
The insoles’ top sheets are made from XT2 anti-microbial fibers. It helps keep your pair feeling and smelling fresh longer.
