Giro Prolight Techlace

In hot weather, there's nothing worse than heavy shoes. The new Giro Prolight Techlace combines the lightweight, breathability, and stiffness of the popular Prolight SLX with Giro's innovative Techlace fastening system. The Techlace system combining the comfort of laces with the on-the-fly adjustability of straps or buckles. The upper is made with Techmesh, an ultralight and breathable material that doesn't stretch under power. The shoe's carbon fiber outsole is woven in flat sheets instead of threads, a process (borrowed from F1 racing teams) produces carbon fiber that's incredibly stiff, yet lighter because it requires less resin. The result is a shoe that weighs about 150g, making it the lightest production shoe currently on the market. [$400; giro.com]
