Created to provide professional level performance but also deliver more comfort for the everyday cyclist, the Imperial Road Shoes feel like a second skin as soon as you slip them on. Lightweight shoes can often suffer from a lack of support but not here, the Synchwire™ Upper and stiff carbon sole combine to give you an incredible feeling of support and power-transfer as you push out the watts.
The first thing you'll notice with the Imperial Road Shoes is Giro’s proprietary Synchwire™ upper construction - this innovative design makes use of an ultralight monofilament mesh, reinforced with thermal-welded Teijin® TPU. This design provides an incredible level of support for your foot, minimal weight, enhanced durability where you need it most and incredible ventilation around the whole foot. This design hits the sweet spot between low weight, support for fluid pedalling and a high degree of breathability for those scorchingly hot days on the bike.
Precision BOA IP1 Adjustment
Next Giro looked to the fit and adjustment of the Imperial so even long endurance rides are perfectly comfortable. Giro adds twin BOA IP1 dials, giving you an incredible degree of precise adjustment, letting you adjust on the fly to take into account changes in temperature and conditions. With the BOA wires running in webbing guides the shoes can be snugly closed with an even tension which eliminates hot spots and pinch points.
The Heart and Sole of the Imperial
Then comes the heart of any performance cycling shoe - the outsole. Here you'll find Giro's high-modulus Easton® EC90 SLX2 carbon sole unit, delivering perfect stiffness-to-weight so you enjoy optimal power transfer to the pedals and minimal flex. While it's not the lightest sole unit Giro make it has the durability to stand up to your daily training and hard riding weekend races. Inside the shoe, the adjustable Super Natural Fit footbed system provides optimal pedalling efficiency with customizable arch support for performance and luxurious comfort
The result of this blend of light and airy upper, Boa fit system and stiff but durable carbon sole is a race-ready shoe which provides the perfect pedalling platform for smooth power transfer and maximum pedalling efficiency. From one hour criterium to your very own Grand Tour ride the Imperial is the ultimate choice for best in class comfort and performance.
