    Light and lightning fast.

    Give yourself a serious competitive edge with the Giro Men's Prolight Techlace Shoes. Tipping the scale at a mere 150 grams, the Prolight balances ultralight construction with top of the line pedaling performance from its progressive upper and outsole.

    Adorned with three quick and convenient Techlace Pro straps, the Prolight offers a fast and secure closure system, while its Ultralight Techmesh upper with a Teijin TPU skeletal overlay ensures long-lasting durability, breathability, and overall comfort through the seasons. An Ultralight SuperNatural Fit Kit with adjustable arch support in the footbed provides you with just the right level of support and response, while X-Static anti-microbial fiber in the Ultralight footbed helps things stay fresh and fatigue-free. Then, the stiff TeXtreme Advanced Concepts outsole serves up lightning-fast responsiveness in an insanely lightweight package.

    • Durable and breathable Techmesh upper for comfort
    • Techlace Pro straps lock down the fit in a pinch
    • Adjustable arch support at footbed provides the right fit

    Originally disappointed but...

      After less than 10 uses the heel piece fell off and the sole cracked. For such an expensive shoe I would have expected it to be more durable.

      After posting my original review, the Gearheads reached out (in less than a day) and asked that I return the broken pair so they could get me a replacement pair (free shipping, they handled the warranty, etc.). Absolutely awesome customer service. I haven't used the new pair a ton yet, but in general the shoe is really good - light, comfortable, breathes well, and is fairly stiff. Giving it 4 stars because of the initial experience and I also think the sole could be stiffer, but other than that it's a good shoe and BC has you covered if things go awry.

      Best. Shoe. Ever.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      Lightweight - Check
      Stiff - Check
      Comfortable - Check

      What else could you want? These shoes are beyond awesome, and I honestly can't see myself using another shoe for quite some time.

      Never going back

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This shoe is simply awesome. Done with the days of clunky heavy sidis. This shoe is light, easily adjustable and really, once you wear them, you don't want to put anything else on. I have the whole line now of Giro lace ups and simply love them. Just when I thought the empire ec90 was the perfect shoe along comes the protech. This shoe is so light. It's a little bit narrower in the toe box, but with the adjustability it feels fine. I now use both these shoes and the ec90s for TT, triathlon and road. As a cat 2 I can't tell you how much my power and cadence has increased. Could be mental, but I will never go back to a ratchet, boa or other stupid system. Simply perfect!

      Most comfortable shoes I've owned

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 45
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 168lbs

      These shoes are fantastics. I used to wear bontragers 45s and swapped to a these in a 45. The insoles are better than the custom ones I used to have, and the shoes simply feel like a slipper.

      The one modification I wound up making was for triathlon, racing barefoot, there are some seems inside the shoe and some taped edges that were too thin. I wound up putting a couple pieces of KT tape over the seams and they are now amazing tri shoes as well.

      Giro Prolight Techlace

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 45.5
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 157lbs

      These are the most comfortable and stiff shoes I've owned. I received them and did 600 miles and 19000 feet of climbing in them in the first seven days. Not one hotspot, blister or any foot issue. From the first time I put them on, they felt already broken in. They fit snug like my old track racing spikes and the weight was similar. These shoes made my Fi'zi:k R1B Uomo Boa Limited Edition seem heavy. I had no problems with the velcro tabs staying tight and were fairly easy to adjust the lace tension while riding. I will get a second pair. They fit true to size. I ordered the same size as all my other Giro shoes. Many thanks Bill Sherman for your recommendation and effort to get these to me in a pinch.

      Stiff and light

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      So I got these shoes a week or so back and have a few hundred miles on them, so just a preliminary review.

      I swapped to these from a pair of Empire SLXs, these are 25g lighter each. While it might not sound like much, the difference in weight was immediately noticeably when I slipped these on. The TeXtreme sole allows Giro to keep the same amount of stiffness while losing weight.

      Even with all the weight savings, they didn't cut any corners on durability or comfort. The heel cup is still very nicely padded and the toe area is built up and has resisted all the toe rub I have gotten (#smallbikeproblems). The only small thing is that the heel pad isn't replaceable, but they wear very well, and shouldn't be an issue.

      The Techlace system is velcro straps refined. Instead of a wide band of unbreathable synthetic, only laces are draped across the top of your foot. The system also allows for a small amount of movement so it fits just right after a few miles on the bike. Even if you didn't get it right the first time, just lift the velcro tab, and place it back down where you think it'd be comfier. Simple as that.

      If you don't want the Techlace, there is also the option to retrofit them with old regular laces, which saves a further few grams from the shoe.

      They fit exactly the same as the Empire SLX/ACC/Originals.

      Feel free to reach out with any other questions!

      Unanswered Question

      I wear a 42 in Fizik R1B Uomo but 41.5 in Shimano and Louis Garnesu. What do you think is best size for Giro Prolight Techlace?
