You’ve seen knit technology in athletic footwear, but it’s new to cycling because cycling shoes require a mix of supple comfort and stout performance that athletic shoes don’t provide. The Empire E70 Knit for women features Giro's proprietary Xnetic Knit upper, developed specifically for cycling with a TPU skeletal system and technical nylon core that creates the support you need to get the most out of your pedal stroke while remaining airy and supple, with sock-like comfort. Xnetic Knit is also DWR-treated for water repellency and easy cleaning, and the reinforced toe and heel areas enhance durability and abrasion resistance. When you combine Xnetic Knit with a genuine Easton carbon outsole, you get a powerful combination that’s also a step forward in cycling shoe design.
SPD/2-Bolt Cleats are most commonly found on Mountain Bike shoes. Look/SPD-SL/3-Bolt Cleats are most commonly found on Road Bike shoes.
Cleats are sold separately or with pedals. Be sure your shoes feature the correct bolt pattern.
