New this 2011 is the Giro Prolight SLX Ultralight Shoes. Compared to most standard shoes, these road cycling shoes give a significant weight savings. Its 6.5mm high-modulus Easton® EC90 SLX outsole maximizes power transfer.
According to Giro, the Prolight SLX is a lightweight shoe that redefines fit, feel and power-to-weight performance. Along with an ultralight EVA footbed, added to the shoes are a SuperNatural Fit Kit footbed with adjustable arch support.
Such a design allows the riders to customize the fit. For optimal comfort, the 2011 Giro Prolight SLX Ultralight Shoes feature a first-rate Teijin microfiber upper that shapes to the rider’s foot like a second skin.
