The Giro Empire SLX offers the classic laced closure system that Giro reintroduced to high end road cycling shoes with the original Empire. A new Evofibre SL one piece upper combines with Easton’s new EC90 SLX2 carbon and titanium hardware to create one of the lightest road shoes on the market; the Empire SLX weighs in at a featherlight 175 grams (size 42.5).
Easton’s SLX2 High-Modulus outsole means, despite such low weight, the SLX maintains the stiffness needed to maximise power throughout your pedalling motion. The one piece Evofibre upper was designed to do more than just save weight; by stitching the upper as a single piece of fabric, the combination of how the upper, outsole and insole work together has been enhanced, eradicating the threat of hot spots or pinching to create a comfortable, smoother fit.
Finishing comes in the form of titanium hardware for extreme durability and light weight and the footpads and laces are replaceable allowing you to keep your shoes looking pro team ready.
Note: Giro shoes size small so consider sizing up. If you need further size advice please contact us.
