Construction of the Giro Ventana

The Ventana by Giro was designed around a stout nylon shank placed in the midsole. The shank works together with the EVA midsole. This combination has been established to administer pedaling efficiency for the Downhill (DH) World Cup.

This version’s fit is secured by a BOA dial, steel lace, and forefoot hook-and-look strap. This retention system aims to provide a lockdown fit without hotspots. The grip is governed by Sensor rubber outsoles, ideal for the uneven terrain.


Durable and grippy. The Ventana’s outsole is made from the Sensor rubber compound. It is engineered to provide essential MTB shoe traction, inspiring confidence every time trekking over rocks and logs is needed.

Enough rigidity. Equipped with a stout nylon shank in the cleat area, this pair allows an adequate transfer of power with every pedal.

Cleat System

This footwear is suitable for MTB pedal systems, which employ a two-bolt cleat design. Some of the pedal types that match this shoe are any of Shimano’s SPD pedals, Time’s ATAC pedals, Crank Brothers Race, Look MTB, Ritchey MTB, and many more.

It is also compatible with most indoor cycling gyms.


Breathable and comfortable. The shoe’s one-piece Synchwire upper design is engineered to hug the foot to aid in optimal power transmission while retaining comfort. It features PU-bonded mesh inserts for excellent aeration.

Impact protection. The heel and toe sections are reinforced with rubber to keep the foot protected from bumps and lengthen the shoe’s lifespan as well.

Precise, on-the-fly adjustable fit. The Ventana features a BOA dial and strap combination to govern the closure. The BOA L6 dial could be tightened in 1 mm increments and loosened instantly via its macro release function. The Velcro strap is mainly responsible for the snug fit of the forefoot area.


Impact absorption. Working in conjunction with the outsole, this pair’s molded EVA footbed helps soak up impact and vibrations. It also provides cushioning for enhanced comfort. This footbed is designed with medium arch support.
