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, Giro created an ultralight monofilament “Synchwire” mesh upper that fits and feels like a second skin thanks to the dual Boa IP1 buckles with soft lace guides. Thermal-welded Teijin® TPU adds structural support exactly where it’s needed and a high-modulus Easton® EC90 SLX2 carbon fiber outsole provides ultimate stiffness-to-weight for power transfer. Giro's 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.
