More carbon, please.

Light? Come on! You won't even know that you're wearing the Louis Garneau Men's Carbon X-Lite Shoes until you feel the instant power transfer from your legs to the rear wheel. Louis Garneau pushed its design to the edge to create a sub-200 gram shoe that gives the competitive cyclist the stiffness, support, and ventilation needed to win races.

Here's what others have to say...


Good shoe, not "superlight"

    First of all let me say that I never actually used the x-lite shoe. I ordered it and when it came the first thing I did was weigh it. I am a consummate "weight weenie" so one of the most important reasons I ordered the shoe is that it is advertised by Louis Garneau as a "sub 200 gram" shoe. Now I figured that 200 gram number was probably for one of the smaller sizes and that the size 43 that I ordered might be just north of the 200 gram figure. However, when I weighed the shoe upon receiving it I was dis-heartened to see that the actual weight was 270 grams! That is a HUGE difference. So I promptly returned it. For reference I own a pair of 2006 Nike Poggio shoes that weigh 270 grams per shoe in the same size and a pair of 2009 Pearl Izumi Octane SL shoes that weigh 220 grams per shoe on the same scale. On the positive side I will say that the shoe is very sharp looking. Much better in person than in pictures. Also, I did try them on and found them to be very comfortable, supportive, and well built. I believe that it is probably a very good shoe. But it is NOT a super lightweight shoe.



      Best shoe if you want something super ventilated and three strap.


      Good bang for buck.

        Nice quality shoe for the price. Probably the lightest cycling shoe I have owned. Nice touch that you get 2 insoles. Just watch sizing. I usually wear a size 41 in Sidi (I am a size 7 1/2) and many other brands but had to go with a 41.5 with this one. I don't know if the whole size range is a little off, but I had to go up 1/2 size.

        Need a size for the LG xlite shoe. I wear normally a size. I have a pair of bont's that are 42 and sworks that are 43. The sworks are a little tight.

        Do LG shoe sizes run large, small, or on point? I wear size 44 Shimano road shoes.

        Write your answer here...I usually were a 44 or 45, after live chatting with a realcyclist rep I went with the 44; the size is spot on. The rep did say they run a bit narrow which works for me. If you have a wide foot you might want to size up or stay with Shimano which tends to run wider
