Ask a question about this product

The Giro Trans Shoes have all the fit and design elements of Giro's more expensive shoes, but they're also designed with your bank account in mind. That is to say that you're still getting a composite 6.5mm sole, you're still getting an upper built around the same Giro last, you're still getting the same Giro strap placement, but you're getting it all with a nod at saving money each step of the way. The sole is Easton's EC70 version, a carbon composite made of 70% carbon/30% glass, and it comes out of the same mold that Giro uses for their EC90 and EC90 SLX soles. The upper is microfiber, sourced for price, and the insole is a molded EVA footbed with medium arch support and an anti-microbial treatment on the fabric top sheet. In other words, if you tried on the Giro Factor shoes and then wore these, the fit will be the same and the straps will work just like the straps on the Factor. The upper won't feel as supple and the sole isn't quite as stiff, but it will be supple and stiff and feel very much like the Factor you just took off. The Giro Trans comes in two colors -- Black and Blue/White. The buckle is replaceable and has two positions for further adjustability. The sole is drilled for three-bolt cleats, and there are pads underneath both the heel and toe for walking on slick surfaces. If you have a yen to try Giro's Supernatural Fit Kit, know that the arch on this insole matches the medium arch of their after-market kit; the shoes are designed to accept after-market insoles without issue. They're available in whole sizes from 39-48 and half sizes from 39.5 to 46.5.
