Studio Yasuda Collection
Featuring bold geometric prints in black and white with splashes of colour and glimpses of Japanese Katakana typography, the Studio Yasuda Collection, a collection inspired by elusive graphic designer Hironori Yasuda, brings a fresh look to your cycling kit. Technical fabrics, Giro's renowned eye for detail and superb fit and function are all present and correct too. These are super-special Giro Sports Designs you'll love to wear.
Lightweight shoes can often suffer from a lack of support but not here, the thermal-welded Teijin® TPU upper, lace-up design and stiff carbon sole of the Empire SLX Road Shoes combine to give you an incredible feeling of stability and power transfer as you ramp up the power.
One-piece Synchwire™ Seamless Upper
While the Empire SLX has the traditional lace-up design, don't be fooled, it's packed with the very latest technology. The eye-catching and innovative upper uses ultralight monofilament mesh, reinforced with thermal-welded Teijin® TPU to provide an incredible level of support for your foot, minimal weight, enhanced durability where you need it most and incredible ventilation around the whole foot. This design hits the sweet spot between low weight, support for fluid pedalling and a high degree of breathability for those scorchingly hot days where even the road surface starts to melt.
The Heart and Sole of the Empire
Then comes the heart of any performance cycling shoe - the outsole. Here you'll find Giro's high-modulus Easton® EC90 SLX2 carbon unit, delivering perfect stiffness-to-weight so you enjoy optimal power transfer to the pedals and minimal flex. While it's not the lightest sole unit Giro make it has the durability to stand up to your daily training and hard riding weekend races. Inside the shoe, the adjustable Super Natural Fit footbed system provides optimal pedalling efficiency with customizable arch support for performance and luxurious comfort.
Designed for racing and training, the Empire SLX Road Shoes deliver the ideal balance of lightweight support, incredible ventilation and the stiffness needed for podium-topping performance. With their lace-up design they also perfectly blend tradition with cutting edge technology.
