Giro's New Knit Cycling Shoes Collection



Giro (USA) – "You’ve seen knit technology in athletic footwear, but you haven’t seen it in cycling… until now. Introducing the new engineered Xnetic™ Knit (pronounced ex-net-ic) for unparalleled comfort and breathability. Xnetic™ Knit technology was developed for the specific needs of performance cycling. A TPU skeletal system provides support where you need it, while the knit offers suppleness for superior sock-like comfort. The porous knit material makes the entire upper breathable, giving you a shoe that has superior ventilation and drying time", explained Giro.

"Don’t confuse this knit footwear with a fragile sweater, because these shoes stand up to the elements. The Xnetic™ Knit is DWR-treated for water repellency and easy cleaning after grimy rides. Rubber or TPU toe and heel guards provide abrasion resistance and superior durability. Simply speaking, they are built to tackle the road, trails and any environment where your adventure takes you", added Giro.

"Plus, the style of knit is simply undeniable", continues Giro.
