Imperial Cycling Shoe - Men's by Giro
Never one to kick back and rest on its laurels, Giro is back with some all-new flagship road kicks otherwise known as the Imperial Cycling Shoe. Here in the office, we've been big fans of its Empire model, bringing a resurgence to lace up shoes that reduce pressure points and improve fit thanks to its multiple anchor points throughout the shoe. As an added bonus, the design is lightweight and looks pretty cool. Our only complaint is not being able to adjust them on the fly, like right before a sprint. That all changes with the Imperial and its move to a dual BOA system.Giro is able to keep an incredibly minimal design by constructing the Imperial of its own ultralight, monofilament, one-piece Synchwire mesh upper. It easily conforms to your foot and fits and feels like a second skin.

Synchwire's construction is stitchless and its advanced composites are what allows Giro to build the Imperials to such a high level. The thermo-bonded film provides overall durability, a non-woven internal sheet distributes the force from the BOA dials for direct power transfer, and the mono-filament mesh provides the ventilation. Additionally, thermal-welded Teijin TPU adds structural support to the upper where it's needed.Speaking of BOAs, the closure system is what's new for Giro and really sets the Imperials apart from the rest of its lineup and it features dual BOA IP1 buckles reeling the cables in and out in 1mm increments through soft nylon lace guides. As such, it allows you to adjust the shoes quickly and easily on the fly with the turn of the dial while still reaping the benefits of ultra-lightweight shoes. The design also eliminates stretch and the instant macro release means getting out of the Imperials and into some podium shoes are even easier and faster.Down below, Giro worked closely with the engineers at Easton to develop a prop...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
