Foregoing the typical straps and buckles, the Giro Empire SLX utilizes laces to decrease weight and create a better fit. A little more time is required for fine-tuning pre-ride but it is worth the extra effort. An improvement on the Empire ACC, the Empire SLX upper is more breathable, malleable and less stiff. The upper is one piece of flexible Evofiber that molds to your foot like it was custom made. The unique design adds stability while eliminating hot spots. With perforations in the Evofiber for cooling, your feet stay fresh while turning heads. Increasing the stability of the shoe is Giro’s stiffest sole yet, the Eaton C90 Carbon sole with titanium hardware and replaceable heel and toe pads. With a low 6.55mm stack height, your power transfer is dialed. The adjustable arch support of the Ultralight SuperNatural Fit Kit keeps your from sacrificing comfort and support as you power through the pedal strokes.
