“Triathlon is growing globally and our cycling footwear continues to get accolades for innovation, performance and comfort, all of which are top-of-mind for triathletes,”
For their first triathlon shoes, Giro didn’t stop with standard tri-specific features like highly breathable uppers and a wide opening and broad upper strap, but included small details like an integrated scuff guard at the heel and a looped heel pull with a smaller secondary loop for anchoring the shoe to the crank. Both Mele™ Tri and Facet™ Tri feature Giro’s acclaimed SuperNatural Fit footbed with adjustable arch support and Aegis™ anti-microbial treatment. For stiffness, low stack height and minimal weight, the Mele™ Tri and Facet™ Tri both feature stiff Easton® EC70 composite outsoles that provide efficient power transfer without compromising comfort.
