Who should buy the Giro Savix
The Savix from Giro is a road cycling shoe that champions two main features: the BOA dial and the universal cleat design. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a BOA L6 dial that could easily be adjusted even while on the bike and helps eliminate excess weight.
- Need a universal cleat mount that allows the rider to switch between two and three-bolt pedals freely.
The Savix employs an injected nylon material for its outsole. This type of sole supplies a moderate stiffness for sufficient power transfer. It is also recommended for riders who just got into the sport.
Universal cleat design
This model is a clipless shoe that features markings to keep the cleats aligned every time you need to change it. The shoe can accommodate both 2- and 3-bolt cleat designs. Users are given the freedom to switch between these two options depending on their personal preferences.
Giro Savix is breathable
One of the shoe’s strengths is its excellent ventilation, all thanks to the multiple perforations found throughout the shoe. The upper consists of mesh panels in the toe box, midfoot, and collar areas. Finished by a perforated tongue and a vented hole in the outsole.
Easy on-the-fly adjustment
Entry-level cycling footwear doesn’t often come equipped with BOA closures as it is seen as something that usually belongs to high-end models. However, the Giro Savix just broke that stereotype as it features the BOA. This pair's BOA L6 dial allows the cyclist to tighten the shoe even on a bike in 1mm increments. It is designed to provide fast and easy adjustment with just a turn of the dial.
The closure utilizes a combination of a cable lace with nylon guides and a mechanical reel system. This fusion helps eliminate lace stretching and reduces weight. Lastly, the dial also offers an instant macro release function for easier entry and exit of the foot.
Crafted from a combination of mesh and synthetic fiber material, the Savix provides a durable construction without sacrificing the comfortable and flexible fit.
The Giro Savix utilizes a die-cut footbed to provide optimal in-step comfort. This insole is designed to hug and shape after the foot to avoid it from sliding inside the shoe.
