Giro Prolight Techlace
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 45.5
These are the most comfortable and stiff shoes I've owned. I received them and did 600 miles and 19000 feet of climbing in them in the first seven days. Not one hotspot, blister or any foot issue. From the first time I put them on, they felt already broken in. They fit snug like my old track racing spikes and the weight was similar. These shoes made my Fi'zi:k R1B Uomo Boa Limited Edition seem heavy. I had no problems with the velcro tabs staying tight and were fairly easy to adjust the lace tension while riding. I will get a second pair. They fit true to size. I ordered the same size as all my other Giro shoes. Many thanks Bill Sherman for your recommendation and effort to get these to me in a pinch.
Stiff and light
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
So I got these shoes a week or so back and have a few hundred miles on them, so just a preliminary review.
I swapped to these from a pair of Empire SLXs, these are 25g lighter each. While it might not sound like much, the difference in weight was immediately noticeably when I slipped these on. The TeXtreme sole allows Giro to keep the same amount of stiffness while losing weight.
Even with all the weight savings, they didn't cut any corners on durability or comfort. The heel cup is still very nicely padded and the toe area is built up and has resisted all the toe rub I have gotten (#smallbikeproblems). The only small thing is that the heel pad isn't replaceable, but they wear very well, and shouldn't be an issue.
The Techlace system is velcro straps refined. Instead of a wide band of unbreathable synthetic, only laces are draped across the top of your foot. The system also allows for a small amount of movement so it fits just right after a few miles on the bike. Even if you didn't get it right the first time, just lift the velcro tab, and place it back down where you think it'd be comfier. Simple as that.
If you don't want the Techlace, there is also the option to retrofit them with old regular laces, which saves a further few grams from the shoe.
They fit exactly the same as the Empire SLX/ACC/Originals.
