Giro (United States) - Press Release: Wired for speed. At a gravity-defying 215 grams, with the performance and range of adjustability you need to conquer the steepest routes ahead, the Imperial™ is destined to lead a lightweight revolution in road cycling footwear.
To make a full-featured shoe that rivals minimalist designs in weight, we created the Imperial road shoe, which features our own ultralight monofilament Synchwire mesh upper that fits and feels like a second skin.
The Imperials Synchwire upper features dual Boa IP1 buckles and soft lace guides, which allow you to adjust your speed on the fly while reaping the benefits of the shoes light weight. Thermal-welded Teijin® TPU adds structural support exactly where its needed, and a high-modulus Easton® EC90 SLX2 carbon fiber plate provides ultimate stiffness-to-weight for power transfer. Our adjustable Super Natural Fit footbed system is the final touch, allowing you to customize arch support right out of the box for luxurious comfort and optimal pedaling efficiency.
