The Privateer MTB Shoe combines the comfort of the Giro Empire shoe with the durability of the Privateer mountain bike shoes. The laced upper design is functional, intuitive, and reliable; built to withstand rugged conditions of daily use, or on gravel. The microfiber upper fits and feels great, and the co-molded outsole permanently fuses the nylon sole with an aggressively lugged rubber tread, yielding plenty of power at the pedals with a secure grip on the trails.

  • High-quality, breathable microfiber.
  • Rockprint toe and heel for abrasion resistance and durability.
  • Tubular laces are durable and secure.
  • Reinforced rubber toe cap.
  • Co-molded nylon and rubber high-traction lugged outsole.
  • Mid-foot scuff guard.
  • Accommodates steel toe spikes.
  • Molded EVA footbed with medium arch support
  • Weight: 355g (size 42).

Giro are my go-to cycling shoes now

I keep watch on my BTD emails and scoop up any good deals on Giro lace-ups that come across my in-box. These gravel shoes are good and rugged for the punishment of riding and hike-a-biking on gravel paths. Giro lace-ups are the best--I have them in road SPD-SL cleats and gravel/mountain SPD cleats.

Great Value, If you can get the sizing correct

I recently purchased these for my gravelcross bike. So far I've been pleased, however buyers should know these run big.

I have a pair of Giro ACC Empires in 44s for my road bike. So I assumed the Giro Privateer Lace would be similar in sizing. Wrong! I ordered a pair of 44s, which were significantly bigger than my Giro ACC's. BTD sent out a pair of 43's, which fit perfectly.

One other thing with these shoes the laces are so short I have a hard time getting them in the lace loop.

Overall this is a very comfortable shoe, IF you can figure out the correct size.

Nice shoes with a retro look

Needed versatile shoes with 2 hole cleats for general use on both MTB and occasionally my road bike. Analyzed various options to the point of exhaustion before giving these a try. I like them a lot. Nice fit, good value. Laces are cool, but you have to be very careful to get them tied and keep them tied or bad things will happen. Not sure I would want to use them extensively in the deep woods. As to fit, I wear a 44.5 or 45 in Fizik road shoes, and the 45 fit me just right in this shoe. Overall I'm happy with the purchase.

Just right

My feet are hard to fit I guess. Or maybe I'm just really picky. But for whatever reason, shoes are one of my most difficult kit decisions. I usually try several in a wide range of prices and styles, because fit and performance really matter to me. For me, these fit the bill really well. Starting with the closure system, for me, laces are the way to go. I was not always a fan of laces (way too showy in my mind) but the truth is that they really do work well to relieve weird pressure points and control overall fit. These shoes are very comfortable. Next is the sole. These shoes have a really nice and grippy rubber sole, but they are still relatively trim--making them more like a road shoe than a hiking boot. I use these for gravel riding, so for me that's the perfect compromise. Then there is stiffness. If I have a compliant, it's here. These shoes are not the stiffest and I wish they were. But after a half-dozen 30-40 mile rides and one 80 mile ride, I can't say that its really bothered me that much. Power transfer could be better with a stiffer, full carbon sole. But mostly, these have done the job nicely. Next criteria is weight. The lace closure really helps there. These are not road-shoe-light, but they're light enough and much lighter than most of the shoes I tried. So overall pretty satisfied with the weight. Aesthetics--I think these are really nice, understated shoes. And price. These are a mid-range price shoe that have excellent fit and performance characteristics--even with the less than super-stiff soles. For me, these were just right. It took trying on a BUNCH of shoes from Fizik, Giro, and Specialized before I landed on these. And they weren't even on my list to begin with. I'm glad I found them and recommend them.
