The premium road shoe in Gaerne's range, the Carbon G. STL Road Cycling Shoes, here in sleek Gold Rush edition, come to life in the lung-busting speed and intensity of road races and during the most challenging training sessions. The lightweight microfibre upper wraps your foot snugly to provides excellent support when pedalling. Laser-perforations allow your feet to breathe and they contribute to maintaining a stable micro-climate inside.
The Anatomic Heel Cup 1.0 has evolved to improve foot support and the anti-slip treatment prevents heel lift when you're pedalling. The heel cup works alongside the Tarsal Support System 1.0. Standing for "Tarsal Support System", this maintains the ideal foot position within the shoe, allowing for an efficient pedal stroke and unmatched power transmission.
You also benefit from the EPS Comfort insole. The anatomical shape offers support and comfort, while perforations are used to regulate temperature.
Gaerne EPS Carbon 12.0 Sole
Made from Carbon Fibre, the Gaerne EPS Carbon 12.0 Sole is both super-light and super-thin. And yet it rates 12 out of 12 on Gaerne's stiffness scale. This provides superb foot stability on the bike and ensures all your hard-won watts are transferred to the pedals. The slim sole also keeps your foot closer to the pedal axle, delivering a more natural and efficient pedal stroke.
Compared to the previous generation, this sole unit now has 9mm more cleat adjustment, letting you get your cleat position just right. Four-air vents guarantee excellent airflow to the foot and anti-slip inserts at the toe and an interchangeable pad in the rear makes it easier to walk when you're off the bike.
BOA Dial Brilliance
To customise the fit and feel of the shoes, you'll enjoy the use of the proven Boa Li2 system. This system allows precise adjustment and a uniform fit across the foot while removing any pressure points. Twist. Adjust. Ride. And because the 'lacing' is so minimal, it allows for greater air circulation and hence greater comfort. Boa Technology also guarantees the reels and the cables of the BOA closing system for the entire useful life of the product.
The BOA dials work with the InFit Closure System. This gives a total of eight fixing zones through which the Boa laces run. This ensures a smooth application of pressure, spread across your whole foot.
These Road Shoes are compatible with road bike pedal systems that use cleats with 3-bolt standards, such as: Look Delta and Keo, Shimano SPD-SL, Speedplay Light Action, Zero, X-Series (via 3-hole adapter plate), Campagnolo Pro-Fit, Mavic Zxellium, Time Iclic/Xpresso and Time Impact.
