Everyone knows white = speed when it comes to road cycling shoes. The Gaerne Carbon G Chrono shoe is no different.
While aesthetics are a small (okay big) part of road cycling, for me, if it doesn't perform, I don't want it. On a scale of 1-12, Gaerne ranks these shoes a 12 in terms of stiffness on the sole. This equates to incredible power transfer while remaining comfortable hour after hour on the bike.
Color and stiffness play a big part in my shoe selection but I think most important is the fit and how dialed I can get the shoe. These bad boys are next level when it comes to dialing in the fit to the contour of my feet. The boa system evenly distributes pressure keeping hot spots away. What you get is a precise fitting shoe that is easily tuned. Ready for the sprint? Crank that boa system down. Feeling like your feet are hot and swelling? Ease up the tension. The micro adjustment of the boa system puts ratchet systems in the past and velcro in the history archives. Combined with the stiff sole, these shoes are a complete success for me.
The Gaerne Carbon G Chrono shoe breathes well and dirt and smudges rub off leaving the pristine white look for miles to come. The fit (toe box included) is true to size and isn't narrow but isn't wide. The boa system ties the shoe together, figuratively and literally.
A 2-hour ride can have 10,000 revolutions of the pedals, it's a no brainer that a top-level road shoe is a ticket to better performance, comfort and efficiency. So what are you waiting for? Give the Gaerne Carbon G Chrono shoe a try! I'm glad I did.
