Strengths:    comfortable, good-looking shoe. great heel cup, fits my oddly shaped flippers. carbon sole. insole fit system.

Weaknesses:    lugs are wearing faster than i expected. toe area showing signs of wear.

Bottom Line:   
this was my first high dollar pair of shoes (paying over $150). i tried on several brands (sidi,specialized,shimano) and the giros felt the best on my feet. i really like the tight-fitting heel cup.

bought these at the beginning of the season and have really enjoyed having them on my feet. i put a lot of long, hard miles in this year. noticed a few hotspots on very long days. the toes are showing damage to the material but hasn't torn through yet. lugs seemed to wear down faster than i expected. $225 is a good chunk of change for shoes.

overall, i think it's a great shoe. i was really pleased with the fit of the heel cup and the ratchet strap. my previous shoes never seemed to keep my heel in no matter how much i tightened the buckle. i would have expected the toe to be a little more wear-resistant as well as the lugs. my old shoes had 3 seasons on them and the lugs don't look this worn.

Strengths:    Excellent Easton Carbon Composite sole. Very comfortable uppers. Ratchet system works well and has very small graduations. Looks bad-ass. Awesome green/yellow sole lugs, and overall styling is very cool, next to maybe a Sidi, but Sidi doesn't come close to making my size! (Eurotrash, roadies).......

Weaknesses:    Cost. Some tread trimming may be required for perfect cleat position. Cleat mounting area is slightly toe-forward compared to other brands, but transfers power well.

Bottom Line:   
Good performer, stiff as a board footboard, cool uppers, comfortable, and make sizes all the way to 13.5 U.S. 48 euro!

Date Reviewed: March 25, 2011

Strengths:    Great Build, Comfortable, Rugged, Decently Light, all around the shoe looks and feels very nice.

Weaknesses:    A little akward feeling at first, maybe becuase I was new to cycling shoes.

Bottom Line:   
I would recomend this product to anyone it has a very good build quality. If you are new to cycling or a old timer I think these are great middle of the road cycling shoes.

Low pressure gauge doesn't register. What am I missing?

It doesn't read no matter what presta valve I put it on. Stans, forte, specialized, bontragger. It would appear that there might be something missing in the chuck which would depress the end of the valve down to release air into the gauge. I can put it on and take it off and never hear air movemen ... Read More »

low pressure gauge?

All the pumps and gauges I've accumulated over many years of cycling provide me with absolutely nothing in terms of measuring tire pressure in the sub-10 psi. range. What are people using to measure the tire pressure on their fat bikes? I've heard that ATV tires gauges work well if you have shrade ... Read More »
