LEADING LIGHT With its low total weight of only 430g, the Imperial sets new standards in weight-reduced, high-performance footwear for racing cyclists on a professional training and performance level.
At the heart of the new Imperial is Giro's patented Synchwire shaft construction, consisting of ultra-light monofilament nylon reinforced with thermally-welded Teijin Elastomers (TPU). This gives the shoe an optimal structural hold and thus greatly increases resistance, especially in the neuralgic areas.
The Dual Boa IP1 closure system with soft-lace guidance ensures completely even lacing, eliminates pressure points and comfortably adapts to the foot.
The Easton EC90 SLX2 carbon-fiber sole provides the perfect balance between weight and stiffness and, in combination with the adjustable Super Natural Fit footbed system, unparalleled pedalling efficiency and comfort.
With the Imperial, Giro introduces a race-ready shoe that feels like a second skin from the first wear.
