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 Easton® 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'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.

    Purchased these shoes to replace a pair of Shimano's I've had for a year that were a little too big. Wanted to upgrade to a nicer shoe and the price on the Prolight SLX was too good to pass up. Shoes are as light as advertised and fit my foot well, but I found that the top Velcro strap was too short to tighten down securely so I had to return them.

            I'm a 210 pound pedal masher and these shoes are plenty stiff. Quality is obviously high and for me buckles have always been pretty useless - Velcro or laces are a better solution. I really like the look of these shoes also. The weight is as-advertised - these things are light. Get the right size - these are as far as I can tell 100% true to size down to the millimeter - so if your foot is 29cm don't get a 28cm shoe. Width and volume, however, are pretty adjustable.

              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.

                Upgraded to these from an entry level pair of Lake shoes. Super light! With the sale price I wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair. They cost almost as much as entry level shoes, and these are top notch. Some reviews noted short velcro straps, I can see this as they are much shorter than my previous pair of shoes; however they work great for me with an average width foot.

                      These were my first pair of road bike shoes and I am extremely satisfied with the purchase.

                      Shoes feel a bit snug (I would get a half size up) but the Velcro straps make it easy to adjust the width.

                      I'd get another pair tomorrow it I had to.

                      So I ordered these shoes and just received them but here is my view on them. I tried the shoe on immediately, I usually wear a 10.5 US, and ordered the 44.5 size. The size honestly felt perfect, and although I haven't done any riding with them, they do feel very comfortable, even on my midwide foot. Another thing, the shoes look and feel like quality footwear, and definitely look sturdy. They are very light, as you would expect. The last note is that the previous reviews are all right in saying that the straps are indeed too short, well mainly the top ones. Although this is easily remedied. Anyway this shoe is pretty impressive.
