The Giro Empire™VR90 mountain bike shoes are one of the lightest options available on dirt and sets the standard in high-performance off-road shoes. Highlights include a lightweight laced one-piece upper for unrivaled comfort, an Easton® EC90™full carbon outsole and molded Vibram® rubber tread for relentless grip. The upper is made of Giro's breathable Evofiber™synthetic upper by Teijin® for superb fit and support that won’t stretch out with wear or weather. Giro's adjustable SuperNatural Fit footbed lets you fine-tune the fit and arch support, for maximum pedaling efficiency.
- Weight - 315 grams (based on size 42.5)
- Evofiber - Evofiber™ takes the best attributes of mesh and microfiber, and fuses them into a single fabric that repels water and improves breathability throughout the shoe. By eliminating the extra seams and adhesives required to insert mesh panels, the durability, comfort and weight of our shoes can all be dramatically improved. Evofiber™ also holds shape exceptionally well, and is fast drying and easy to clean.
- Easton Carbon Composite Outsole - Unidirectional carbon fiber outsole is engineered to provide a direct connection with the pedal, thanks to class-leading stiffness that puts full effort into forward motion.
- Carbon Fiber - Giro uses carbon composites in Giro footwear because it allows us to create thinner, lighter and stronger components.
- Vibram - Vibram® is the world leader in high performance rubber soles, with technologically advanced compounds like IdroGrip, the stickest moldable compound in the Vibram arsenal and developed specifically for flatpedal riding in dry and wet conditions; and Megagrip, a high performance sticky compound with significantly more durability and only a minimal decrease in friction compared to IdroGrip. All Vibram soles are produced with three objectives: to guarantee the best performance, the maximum level of comfort and quality over time.
- Supernatural Fit System - A superb fit, with adjustable arch support to help optimize comfort and enhance pedaling efficiency.
- X-Static Fiber - X-Static fibers use natural silver to provide heat conductive and anti-microbial properties to help keep your hands warm, and your gloves free of odor-causing bacteria and fungus
