Your options are no longer limited. With the ProLight SLX, Giro has produced an amazingly lightweight shoe that doesn't comprise comfort or power.

Their feathery design tips the scale at a mere 205 grams (in a size 42) thanks in part to its sole, which is made of Easton® EC90 SLX -- the same high modulus material used in Easton's most advanced carbon fiber bike parts. At only 6.5mm thick, the carbon is incredibly light yet amazingly stiff, providing instant power transfer to the pedals. The addition of Titanium hardware at the cleat attachment ports brings the weight down even more.

The ProLight's upper construction is equally impressive. Giro uses an ultra-light microfiber material called Teijin AG100, which is exceptionally breathable, and actually conforms to the specific shape of a rider's foot. The three strap closure system is secure yet comfortable. And, Giro's off-set Titanium "D-rings" provide easy fit adjustment, while eliminating pressure points and shaving a few more grams.

Two included footbeds offer even better fit customization, so you get a choice between maximum comfort and minimum weight. The first insert is Giro's SuperNatural Fit Kit, which features a totally unique adjustable arch system to provide a precise fit and allow for fine-tuned adjustments. The second option is their Ultra-light EVA footbed, which is ideal for race day or any occasion when every second counts, yet still provides comfortable support for your longest rides. Both footbeds feature X-Static, an anti-microbial fiber which helps eliminate odor causing bacteria.

The ProLight SLX weighs 205 grams in size 42 when weighed with the Ultra-light footbed. Compatible with standard three-bolt road cleats. Footwear travel bag included. Available colors: Black, White.

A great fitting, super light and super stiff shoe.

These shoes are amazingly light, in part because of a lack of fancy buckles, heal support doo dads, or complicated mechanisms. The fit is perfect, with a little extra room at the front, at least in comparison to Sidis, which I have ridden for years.

Another great feature is the included arch supports, which come in 3 different heights. You can swap these in and out to find the perfect amount of support.

These are the best shoes I have had in many, many years of riding.

This is a great shoe

These a really great shoes, super light and comfortable without sacrificing stiffness where it counts. I had been using custom shoes which were double the price and these shoes are just as good if not better. I like the lack of buckles and ratchet because I can adjust the velcro for the perfect amount of pressure. I also like the custom insole inserts which come with the shoes I have a pretty high instep and the largest arch support works really well to provide a custom fit. Overall I would rate these shoes a 10 out of 10 no complaints whatsoever and probably have 2000 miles on them.

Ridiculously light and stiff

Taking my new Prolights out of the box, I was first struck by their weight-- or lack thereof. During my first ride, I was struck by their stiffness in sudden accelerations and climbs. For weight savings and power transfer, the Prolight SLX is pretty hard to beat.

The Prolight fit might not be right for everyone, even if you use the included Fit Kit's arch supports. The shoe's forefoot is a little snug-not like Sidi, but more narrow than Shimano, Specialized, and other brands. For point of reference, I wear 42s in most other brands, but need 42.5 for Giro's road and MTB lines.

Quality of materials and manufacture seems high. However, I have one concern about the top velcro strap. If you use the high or medium arch supports, your foot takes up so much shoe volume that you can only cinch down half the top velcro strap without overtightening. I've only riden about 25 hours in the Prolights, so perhaps more milage will compress the tongue padding to allow more strappage. So far, this isn't a problem, the heel cup holds my feet very securely. Rather, I'm more concerned about the velcro's longevity, since you can't replace it like a ratchet buckle.

The Prolight's rubber heel pads are a small but well-thought-out feature. They're much safer walking on tile or hardwood surfaces than my previous brand of shoes, which had had hard, slippery plastic bumpers.

Lastly, the Prolights come with shorter cleat bolts. Use them. The soles are so thin that standard cleat bolts might protrude uncomfortably into the balls of your feet.

Great fit, high quality, very light if that is important.

Took a couple of rides to dial in the cleats as prior, all my shoes for the past 12 years have been Addidas. Cleat position turned out to be about 5mm rearward from my other shoes.

The Giro gave a quite noticeable sense of improved pulling through the stroke, I was amazed by this. Additionally, the shoe fit my narrow feet very nicely and are the most comfortable cycling shoe I've yet worn. I also like the velcro closures not caring for others' fussy mechanical buckle designs. It's worth noting the finest available custom shoes use velcro closures.

I'm down for a second pair of the Prolight in the other color. Plus, BTD.com is a fine company.

Light, stiff, and very comfortable

I am very happy with these shoes. As light as a shoe needs to be (I couldn't imagine lighter) and as stiff as a shoe needs to be (they don't flex at all). My previous shoe was a pair of Carnac Ellipse purchased in 2003 which feel like they weigh 25 lb. in comparison. They are very comfortable and I like the choices offered by the insole system. I brought the three different arch supports on my first ride and rode a bit with each to dial in the best fit for me. The toe box feels roomy enough to allow for heavier socks once the weather turns colder in the fall (I live in New England) but with thin socks (Defeet AireatorsRapha merino socks) they feel great.

I did have to lower my seat a bit as the sole is very thin, much thinner than my previous sole. I've ridden them about 1,000 miles in the last month and have nothing negative to say about these shoes. I wish I had bought them sooner!

Great shoe! Super light and Good Construction!!

Previous shoe was a Sidi 5.5 size 45 mega. I had to order a Giro Prolight 45.5. Plenty of room in the toe box and the heel counter holds my heel in place. Overall contruction is good, the thickness of the sole is crazy thin, and the cleat placement the speedplay zero cleats is very simple. Had to lower my saddle and stem, which is actually a good thing!! Love my Giro Prolight SLX shoes!! Highly recommended! $350.00 is expensive for these shoes. I would rather purchase these shoes when they are on sale only.
