Giro - Code Techlace
The Evofiber™ Teijin® microfiberupper is lightweight, breathable and comfortable and reinforced by on-welded impact and abrasion protection.
Due to the SuperNatural Fit Kit with adjustable arch support thefootbed can be individually adjusted to prevent fatigue, and the Aegis® anti-microbial fiber keeps the shoe odor-free.
Technologies of the Code Techlace MTB Shoe:The GiroSuperNatural Fit System combines a cycling-specific footbed with an adjustable arch support kit. By simply choosing from any of the Low, Medium and High arch support included in the kit, riders and fitters can independently adjust arch support to enhance fit and pedaling efficiency while reducing or eliminating common discomforts like hotspots, numbness and cramping. The system is available in men's and women's sizes, and incorporates X-Static® fibers in the footbed to fight odors and other bacteria.
Giro worked closely with the engineering staff atEaston® to develop proprietary outsoles that provide the most direct, powerfull connection to the pedals without compromising comfort. Using advanced modeling and proprietary fixturing in the extensive test lab, every outsole is engineered to provide ideal stiffness in 3 zones: Toe Arch and Heel, while maintaining the lowest possible weight and stack-height (as low as 6.5mm). Additionally, the flatter edges of Giro's outsoles allow the shoe upper material to conform to larger or wider feet (what Giro calla the "spillover" effect) without uncomfortable pinching or binding.
Giro footwear is built on proprietary cycling-specific lasts to create a fit that hugs the foot closely without binding, crowding or discomfort. ThePrecision Fit™ lasts are hand-crafted specifically for cycling footwear in whole and half-sizes that are differentiated between men's and women's shoes, in order to provide the most supportive and precise fit possible in a production shoe.
Evofiber™ takes the best attributes of mesh and microfiber, and fuses them into a single fabric that repels water and improves breathability throughout the shoe. By eliminating the extra seams and adhesives required to insert mesh panels, the durability, comfort and weight of the shoes can all be dramatically improved. Evofiber™ also holds shape exceptionally well, and is fast drying and easy to clean.
TheAegis® Microbe Shield is an anti-microbial barrier that permanently bonded with the fabric. It uses the power of a tiny positive electrical charge to inhibit the presence of odor-causing microbes that can cause discoloring or fading, so your shoes stay fresh and odor-free.
Sonic welding is a process that uses sonic waves and pressure to fuse two elements together permanently. Utilizing this process to add a layer of armor to soft fabrics results in a more durable bond, the so calledDirect Injected™ Armor , that is also cleaner and more accurate than traditional adhesives, and lighter too.
