Giro Prolight Techlace cycling shoes review

The Prolight Techlace shoes are at the top of the Giro shoe hierarchy, boasting extremely low weight with comfort and stiffness to boot

Cycling Weekly Verdict

These shoes offer an incredibly comfortable fit, with a stiff sole and they represent the lightest that we're aware of on the market. So if you're looking to spash some cash on new season kicks, and are prepared to commit a bit of time to maintenance and keeping them clean, then these could well be the ones.

We've long been impressed by Giro's cycling shoe range - the Techlace collection in particular, thanks to the Velcro/lace combination's ability to offer the best of both worlds. 

The Prolight version is particularly special for its groundbreakingly minimalist approach which is heavily loaded with tech but feather weight on the scales.
