Giro launch Prolight Techlace

Giro Sport Design have released their Prolight Techlace shoe.

First teased at the Eurobike tradeshow, this amazing ultra-high performance shoe utilizes a three- strap Techlace Pro closure system and Technical Mesh upper material for unbeatable comfort and breathability, together with a TeXtreme carbon fibre outsole to deliver a sub-150g shoe in size 42.5. The Prolight Techlace is available now from and authorized Giro dealers for $400/ €399/£349.

Simon Fisher, Giro Footwear product manager, said: “Giro is dedicated to pushing the limits of professional-level gear.

“We wanted to make the absolute lightest shoe possible, but it still had to be comfortable for three weeks of five-hour stages and, at the same time, deliver the efficient power transfer pros demand. The Prolight Techlace is a testament to Giro’s unique R&D capabilities, the depth of our partnerships with the world’s fastest riders, and our ability to create innovative materials and technologies to achieve our performance goals.”

Three key features set the Prolight Techlace ahead of the pack:

 Techlace Pro closure system: combining the custom comfort and multiple contact points of laces with the ease and on-the-fly adjustability of hook and loop straps, the Techlace Pro Closure instantly won converts when it debuted on Giro’s Factor Techlace
 Technical Mesh upper: Built from a custom monofilament fibre, this reinforced mesh fabric is welded to Teijin TPU film to give structure, support, and durability
 TeXtreme carbon fibre outsole: Used by top F1 race teams, TeXtreme spread tow carbon fibre uses a unique, flat weave that require less resin allowing Giro to reduce the weight of their outsole by 22 per cent while maintaining the same superior stiffness
