The Imperial Shoes by Giro - Extremely lightweight, high-performance shoes
The Imperial shoes by Giro are high-performance, lightweight shoes for road cyclists. The seamless Synchwire upper fits your foot like a second skin. The fit is optimized with two Boa turn dial closures, so you will hardly feel the shoes. The stiff Easton EC90 SLX2 carbon sole is not only insanely light, but also enormously stiff. This allows you to efficiently transfer your power and momentum to the pedals. To prevent unpleasant odours from developing, the shoes are equipped with X-Static fibres on the inside. Now nothing stands in the way of a hot bike race!
- Pedal System:
- 3-bolt (SPD-SL / Look)
- Closure System:
- dial (twin BOA IP1)
Cleat Adjustment:To find the correct ergonomic position of the feet on the pedals, we recommend using the Cleat Tool by Ergon. With this tool the length, the Q-Factor and foot angle can be perfectly adjusted.
- stiff carbon sole for optimised power transmission
- interchangeable heels
- antimicrobial X-Static footbed
- antibacterial effect due to silver threads
- Lining & Cover Sole:
The Boa adjustment systems allows the width to be adjusted with a turn dial. The combination of a metal sheathed cable and a mechanical coil replaces stretch, reduces weight and allows fine adjustment in 1 mm increments.
Easton Engineered Outsole Plates
The outsole is significantly lighter, stiffer and more comfortable than other soles. The sole only has a maximum height of 6.5 mm, which makes the transition between sole and shoe flat and seamless. The upper material can be optimally adapted to the foot without restrictions. The neutral platform supports the natural foot position when pedalling.
Supernatural Fit System
With the Supernatural Fit System, the shoe can be adjusted to the individual foot shape. This is ensured by the bicycle-specific footbed with adjustable arch support. The Supernatural Fit Kit also increases heel hold to keep the foot as close to the pedal as possible.
The three-layer textile is seamless. The material adapts to the needs of the rider. It's supportive, light, comfortable and allows good ventilation.
Incorporated silver threads have an antibacterial effect, which prevents the formation of odours. In addition, the silver threads have cooling properties when warm and warming properties when cold.
- wash with clear water or with a mild detergent and air dry
- hand wash - do not put in the washing machine
- do not use aggressive cleaning products and coarse brushes
- do not expose to excessive heat
- do not dry with a heater or a hairdryer, as it can damage the shoe
- If the inside of the shoes is wet, they can be stuffed with newspaper to dry. The paper absorbs the moisture and the shoe retains its shape. In most cases the shoe is dried overnight.
