When you're giving it your all on tight, twisty singletrack, you want a shoe that can keep up with you. Enter Giro's Gauge HV. These great mountain-biking shoes offer stiffness and lightness from Giro's Easton flat carbon soles that provide the perfect perch for your feet and a nearly direct connection to your pedals for maximum efficiency. The great fit is courtesy of the breathable microfiber uppers and Giro's included ergonomic and antimicrobial footbeds. Plus, the double hook-and-loop straps and ratcheting-buckle straps vary in width to provide the ultimate fit and feel. You also get padded heels and split tongues for additional comfort, plus aggressive treads for maximum walking traction.
In order to mount your pedals' cleats to your shoes, they must have matching bolt patterns. There are 3 configurations (diagram) used on cycling shoes, SPD-R, Look/SPD-SL and SPD. Road shoes feature one, two or even all three of these. Mountain-bike shoes usually use the SPD pattern. If you have any questions about cleat compatibility, please contact us. We're here to help!
