Pro-level fit with more affordable materials. The new Giro Privateer R MTB shoe is the best value in Giro's high performance line.

The Privateer R improves upon the original generation with a more durable co-molded rubber / nylon outsole, giving more grip on rocks and roots while better withstanding impacts and scrapes. The toe box has also been reinforced for prolonged wear, and toe spike compatibility still offers improved traction in messy conditions.

The Privateer R's upper is designed from a microfiber that's breathable and foot conforming. The replaceable ratcheting buckle and two strap closure system is secure yet comfortable. An offset "D-ring" at the center strap provides extra fit adjustment, while eliminating pressure points.

Giro's Molded EVA footbed offers medium arch support, and features Aegis, an anti-microbial fiber which helps eliminate odor causing bacteria.

The Privateer R weighs 375 grams in size 42.5 . Compatible with standard two-bolt MTB cleats.

Excellent fit and performance.

I bought these shoes on sale as an alternative to top-of-the-line mtb shoes I usually use for mtb'ing. I was tired of tearing up my CX shoes doing more all-mountain riding, so I decided to give these a shot. The fit is more forgiving (wider) than the Giro Empire shoes. I upgraded the insole and really love these shoes. Honestly, when pedaling I don't notice the softer sole (it's nylon, not carbon), and when I have to get off the bike it's great not to clunk around as much. They seem reasonably ventilated, in fact they feel cooler and lighter than my Empires (although supposedly they're a bit heavier). Giro's run small-size up a half size.

Solid performer

The Privateer is a solid all-around performer. I use it for commuting, general riding and touring. On a recent gravel tour there was plenty of mud, but the shoe shed it well and the inside stayed pretty dry considering the sloppy conditions that went on for miles. It feels lighter than the previous version I had and that's a bonus. Bought it on sale, what a steal!
