You've seen knit technology in athletic footwear, but you haven't seen it in cycling until now.
The Empire E70 Knit features our new engineered Xnetic Knit upper, which offers unparalleled comfort and breathability. Xnetic Knit technology was developed for the specific needs of performance cycling. An internal TPU skeletal system provides support where you need it, while the knit offers suppleness for superior sock-like comfort. The upper is DWR-treated for water repellency and easy cleaning, and a TPU- reinforced toe and heel add durability and abrasion resistance. Plus, the style of the Empire E70 Knit is simply undeniable.
Xnetic - Knit features a TPU skeletal system bonded to a knit material, providing support where you need it while the knit offers suppleness and breathability, for sock-like comfort and superb ventilation. Xnetic Knit is also DWR-treated for water repellency and easy cleaning, and reinforced with rubber or TPU toe / heel guards to enhance abrasion resistance and durability.
