The Giro Factor Techlace™ is a race-bred, super-stiff and lightweight cycling shoe weighing just 210 grams and featuring an Easton® EC90 SLX2 carbon fiber outsole, which is among the lightest, thinnest and stiffest pedaling platforms on the road, giving you a direct connection to the pedals and significantly bolstering power transfer.

Mr ChirkovVery light, with a hard sole. Several a narrow pad, recommend take on the size of the more than usually
WexGreat shoe, super comfortable and light. Fit with lace strap feels good. Looks liek a lace up, but is really a modern closure system. I'm a 46 in likes of Fizik but needed a 47 in these.
JanGreat fit around the feet due to the techlaces and easy adjustable. Stiff sole and great power transfer
JaniShoe is more elegant in nature than it looks in the pictures. The shoe is very light and comfortable to wear when you put your insoles right! I also like the cleat setting on the bottom of the shoe. Overall, very good road shoe.
JamesEasily adjustable and comfy to wear. Lightweight with a solid stiff sole that greatly improves power transfer.
Mr ClareGreat road shoe, pro level at a great price, you would be mad not to buy at this price!
Mr HWANGIt is a shoe with excellent performance and comfort. Very satisfied.
Ms MathisonA great top end performance shoe that's very comfortable. The Techlace offers everything fully laced Empire shoes can achieve in terms of fit but also offers on-the-fly adjustment. Slightly wider round the toes than my Sidi Wire.
robGreat service from Merlin. Had 3 different sizes of the Techlace shoes, sent 2 back, refunded quickly. As for sizing im a 44 in Northwave, went for a 45 in the Giro Techlace, as I wanted extra room in the toe box going forward for more comfort. I would say for a straight match, a 44 Northwave would equal a 44.5 in the Giro Techlace.
