Here’s a quick look a few things from Giro. We’ve already shown you some of its new helmets, like the Feature and the Aeon, but it has also been busy since launching its new Code race shoe a year ago. As well as coming out with the Privateer, a more affordable shoe on the same custom last, it has come out with a wider shoe. Having measured and fit thousands of riders in the last year to its shoes, Giro shoe staff noticed that some feet are just too wide or deep to be covered by a single last, so Giro has come out with a wider/deeper shoe. We know several riders who will really appreciate this feature – something previously only really offered by Sidi.
The big feet shoes will run from size 39-48, including half sizes and available in Gauge HV (High Volume) and Privateer HV shoes.
And now for something completely different… The Giro Junction (men’s) and Sage (women’s) shoes. They’re designed to be walkable, stiff enough to ride in, but comfy enough to hang out in the pub/cafe in, or even wear to work all day.
There’s also some revamping going on in glove world too, with Giro’s super popular Xen glove getting some more tree/thumping/crashing padding…
