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.

Features & Specs:

  • Twin Boa® IP1 dials featuring 1 mm +/- adjustment and macro release
  • Easton® EC90™ SLX2 high-modulus carbon sole with stainless steel hardware.
  • Replaceable heel pads.
  • SuperNatural Fit Kit with adjustable arch support.
  • XT2® anti-microbial fiber top sheet.
  • 215g (per shoe, size 42.5)
  • Men’s Performance Fit sizing

Nice shoe

Very light, high quality, good-looking road shoe. Expensive, but the BTD price was good. My only complaint is that I find myself adjusting the boa tension quite frequently during every ride. It seems the shoe expands or flexes a bit more than other shoes I've owned. Overall the fit is comfortable and doesn't feel unstable under hard effort. I ride 200+ miles a week. Also, I bought white since I thought the flat finish looked much better than the glossy black.
