Giro Factor Techlace shoes

Performance, comfort and style combined in Giro's latest shoes

Ever wanted the convenience and performance of a BOA dial closure system while retaining a classic lace-up look? Giro may have struck the nail on the head in these premium, race-ready kicks that BMC racer Richie Porte currently favours.

The Techlace name gives a clue as to the purpose of the laces, in that they don’t actually function as laces in the traditional sense – they’re a teched up version. Instead, they’re attached to Velcro tabs that allow easy fastening and adjustment on the move around the top of the foot, distributing tension evenly.

The top cuff is fastened by a BOA dial, which means you get the best of both worlds – customisable tension across the lower half of the foot, and secure, micro-adjustable anchorage at the upper.

You can further customise your Factor Techlaces by way of twelve different lace lengths offered by Giro to cater for a wide range of unique foot shapes and tension preferences, while there are colour options available for them and the BOA dial too. Not happy with how your Techlaces look or feel out of the box? Then change it.

It’s not all about the mixed fastening system though – the Factors boast pro-level tech to boost comfort and fit. They use a breathable, flexible ‘Evofiber SL’ material on the top of the shoe, and that works with the laces to help the shoe cocoon your foot, while the footbed is customisable with three insole options. Just pop in your preferred arch support and away you go.

All your power feeds into the Easton EC90 SLX2 carbon outsole, which guarantees maximum power transfer through its low profile and stiff construction.
