At 150 grams (size 42.5) these shoes completely change the game for any rider looking for the maximum advantage out of their gear.

The Prolight Techlace is the ultimate expression of a pure performance shoe. The shoe balances ultralight construction with best in class pedaling performance using a stiff TeXtreme Advanced Composite outsole and Techmesh constructed upper. When coupled with Giro’s award winning Techlace closure system, you have the ultimate lightweight, performance and comfort cycling shoe.


Textreme Carbon FiberTextreme carbon fiber is woven in flat sheets instead of threads, producing a carbon fiber that’s ultra-stiff, yet lighter because it requires less resin. In fact, in our shoe outsoles, it has the same stiffness profi le as the Easton SLX II outsole but with a 22% weight savings.

Welded Monofilament Mesh - Welded Monofilament Mesh is a customized monofilament fiber reinforced with technical mesh fabric and welded to a Teijin TPU film. This combination provides structure and durability where you need it, and significant weight savings. The result is superb comfort without stretch, to maximize your power.

Techlace System - The Techlace system is an extraordinary patent-pending design that couples the benefits of laces with the convenience of a strap for superb fit and easy adjustment on-the-fly. By replacing D-rings and other hardware with laces, the Techlace system provides a more supple feel across the forefoot. Plus, the laces can be easily replaced if damaged.

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
