Giro Prolight SLX Shoes 2012

Giro Prolight SLX Shoe 2012

The Prolight SLX redefines fit, feel and power-to-weight performance in a lightweight shoe. Starting with a select Teijin microfiber upper that shapes to your foot like a second skin, Giro then added an ultralight EVA footbed plus a SuperNatural Fit Kit footbed with adjustable arch support so you can customize the fit to match your needs. At only 6.5mm thick, the high-modulus EastonĀ® EC90 SLX outsole is exceptionally thin and light yet provides best-in-class stiffness for maximum power transfer. Titanium hardware reduces weight even further. If you’re looking for the lightest pro-level shoe without compromise, this is it.

Giro Prolight SLX Shoe Features

  • Teijin AG100 ultra-light microfober upper
  • 3 strap closure
  • Offset "D-rings" made of titanium to reduce pressure points and reduce weight
  • Easton EC90 SLX high-modulus carbon sole
  • Ultra-light EPP footbed with X-Static anti-microbial fiber
  • Approximate weight 205 grams
  • Works with road 3 bolt cleats(Look style)

I'm falling in love with these shoes!
I've worn several high-end shoes (Pearl Izumi PRO Leader, Sidi Genius 5 and even the Giro Factor) and none even came close to the fit and stiffness of this shoe. Size 47 with Keo cleats came to 510 grams -- these things are light as a feather. The supernatural fit system that comes with the shoe is excellent, and allows for three different arch levels. The high arch does it for me, and results in an insole that feels custom made. The uppers are a bit stiff at first, but have since conformed to my feet and feel almost like a slipper. The Easton carbon sole is extremely thin (I had to lower my saddle height 5mm to accommodate) and extremely stiff. The entire system results in a shoe that translates, quite simply, into an excellent platform to transfer power. Finally, you should serve hard time for what these cost -- $120 for a $360 road shoe of this caliber is highway robbery. I'm so impressed that I might buy 2 extra pair -- these shoes are that good, and easily the best cycling money I've ever spent.

Narrow and light
A note on sizing. I wear an 11B or 11.5B, depending on the shoe. Although they look small, the 45.5 in this shoe fits perfectly. It is snug all around, much more so than D width shoes which are too loose for my feet.

So, if you have wide feet these will likely be too narrow. If you have narrow and not ultra-high arched feet, perfect.

They are also very light, stiff and beautiful.

PROS: Stylish, Comfortable

Excellent shoes!
i would have given these 5 stars if the top strap weren't so short. I understand the need to be very light weight, but half inch more strap would make this shoe fit a lot better. Other than that, the shoe requires almost no break-in time, the different sets of arch support is great, and the carbon fiber sole is plenty stiff. Highly recommended!

PROS: Fit, Light, Stiff

CONS: Top strap too short

You must try at this price!
I have a narrow foot with a high arch; finding shoes that fit is a tough task. The Prolight SLX from Giro exceeded my expectations. It features: a custom insole that provides a choice of three arch supports, velcro straps that adjust the shoe to fit your own particular foot volume, and a stiff carbon sole for power delivery. This is the lightest shoe I've ever owned! The Shimano SPD-SL cleats are a perfect match to the curvature of the carbon sole. If you wear a 48 in Sidi's, then a 48 will fit you in the Giro's.

PROS: Comfortable

Great for normal to narrow foot
These are super light and super stiff, they look nice and they fit folks that don't have superwide feet. They come with a variety of arch supports so you can fine tune the fit. Best shoes I've owned by a long shot and now a killer deal.

PROS: Stylish, Comfortable, No Stupid Buckles

BEST USES: Racing, Road Biking

A great upgrade from my Shimanos! Super light and comfortable. My Shimanos used to get hot spots in the toes. These distributes the weight evenly throughout my feet. Great for climbing!
