Giro Savix Road Shoes review

The Giro Savix is a good mid-range shoe with a plastic sole and Boa dial closure

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Giro Savix are excellent mid-level shoes that look great and are really comfortable. The Boa dial offers great adjustment and the cleat compatibility is useful. Highly recommended and there's a women's version too.

The Giro Savix sits just above the brand's slightly more affordable Treble II shoes. The main difference between the two is that the Treble II features three Velcro straps, whereas the Savix shoes have a more sophisticated Boa dial closure system that allows you to really tune the fit and is more commonly associated with high-end shoes. You can find more information about the different features of the best cycling shoes over here.

The Boa dial allows you to make 1mm incremental adjustments and is easy to use when riding too, should you wish to adjust the fit on the fly or tighten your shoes heading into a sprint. There is also a single Velcro strap at the front of the shoe, although I found this a little redundant. It didn't seem to contribute much to the fit.
