You’re a little XC, a little trail. The Giro Code Techlaces are both.
A single Boa dial near the ankle provides stability and a bash guard to protect against rock strikes, while Giro’s Techlaces over the top of the foot and toe box snug up for an even, comfortable fit.
A carbon Easton EC70 sole offers plenty of power transfer, while the Vibram rubber outsole ensures you can still tackle the hike-a-bikes confidently.
These are some of the most comfortable XC kicks on the market.
