First Look: Giro Sector – Road Bike Action

Giro Sport Design, the cycling world’s design leader, today announced the all-new,  Sector and Sector W off-road cycling shoes, featuring the proprietary combination of a one-piece reinforced Synchwire monofilament upper with a twin-Boa L6 micro-adjustable closure and dual-injected rubber outsole. Both Giro Sector styles are available immediately from authorized Giro retailers and for $225.

The Sector combines Giro’s supple, breathable Synchwire upper with a thermo-bonded exo-structure, plus additional reinforcement for the toe and heel sections. A stout carbon-composite plate and an aggressive, dual-injected rubber outsole delivers excellent traction that won’t break down or delaminate over time or rough surfaces. A supportive 3D molded footbed with Aegis antimicrobial treatment enhances comfort and fit, which is adjustable via dual BOA L6 dials featuring 1 mm adjustment and macro release.

“Whether riders are grinding out all-day gravel adventures, tackling their first 50-mile XC race, or just enjoying some quick laps on the trail after work, they need shoes that are comfortable, durable and provide a powerful connection to the pedals,” said Giro Footwear Product Manager Peter Curran. “The Sector was specifically developed around the combination of Synchwire uppers, our new composite outsole and Boa’s most popular dial closure, to create a supportive fit with ease of adjustment on-the-fly.”
