Empire Lace-Up Road Shoes: A new standard for light weight cycling footwear.
At just 175 grams (size 42.5), the Empire SLX sets a new standard for light weight cycling footwear. Yet it doesn’t compromise the structure or stiffness needed to put full power to the pedals thanks to a combination of exceptional fit, a new Evofiber™ SL one-piece upper, and the Easton® EC90™ SLX2 high-modulus outsole.
And with replaceable heel pads, full titanium hardware and our adjustable SuperNatural Fit Kit, these are full-featured shoes built to win, and built to last.
EASTON® CARBON COMPOSITE OUTSOLE
Unidirectional carbon fiber outsole is engineered to provide a direct connection with the pedal, thanks to class-leading stiffness that puts full effort into forward motion
SUPERNATURAL FIT SYSTEM
A superb fit, with adjustable arch support to help optimize comfort and enhance pedaling efficiency.
X-Static FIBER – X-Static fibers use natural silver to provide heat conductive and anti-microbial properties to help keep your hands warm, and your gloves free of odor-causing bacteria and fungus.
