Working at a bicycle store, Giro's shoes always impress me because 90% of people who try one on love it and buy it. And what's not to love? They are the most comfortable, best looking, and user-friendly shoes on the market in my opinion.
You get basically the same caliber shoe as the Code in a cheaper package. Same customizable fit and darn good looks, and as the other reviewer said, the EC70 carbon is great and stiff. My heel never slips in these, you can really feel the arch support, and the tread lugs are big and durable.
Some mtb shoes look like space-age rockets. The gauge rocks a badass style that might even outweigh its tech specs!
