Giro brings the ultimate in mountain bike shoes with their lightweight, high performance Empire VR90 MTB shoe. Taking cues from their lauded lace-up Empire road shoes, the VR90 features a stiff and featherlight Easton® EC90™ outsole and a supple and breathable Teijin® Evofiber™ synthetic upper. The lace up design allows for seven-points of adjustability for unparalleled comfort, and the sport laces are light, durable, and tuck safely away into a built in retainer on the tongue. Traction is ample with a lugged sole that uses Vibram®'s supremely grippy and durable rubber compound. In addition to the lugs, there's also a Vibram® mid-foot scuff guard to provide traction and protection during treks and dismounts in rocky terrain. Similar protection from rocks and other debris is found on the upper with reinforced rubber layers around the toe box and lower heel cup. Inside, the foot is supported with Giro's SuperNatural fine-tuneable footbed that includes different arch support options for the best fit and to ensure optimum pedaling efficiency. Incorporated X-static® fabric is antimicrobial for a shoe that stays fresh.
Includes a travel bag, toe spikes, an additional set of laces, and SuperNatural Fit arch supports. Claimed weight is 315 g per shoe. (Size 42.5)
