With the Latch, Giro is launching the first of a new series of flat pedal MTB shoes, the technology of which has been completely redesigned. On the one hand, the brand new outsole with the Tack rubber compound is used here. This should be particularly sticky and offer a permanent grip on the pedal. According to Giro, it is highly elastic in order to be able to adapt to the pedal. Equipped with the gamma profile, the pins of the pedals should be able to nestle easily – but they should still be prevented from getting stuck.

In conjunction with the mute foam rubber sole, the MTB shoe should take the next step. In contrast to conventional EVA foam, the mute foam is said to have slow rebound properties, for example to minimize bouncing after jumping on landing and thus to offer the driver more control and stability. In unity with the new sole, Giro expects to improve the connection between the shoe and the pedal significantly compared to its older models.

The baseboards have also been redesigned: They are now less voluminous and should bring the foot closer to the pedal. The toe box, reinforced with a rock print, has also been revised in the new models and is now larger than before. According to Giro, the shoe has a breathable microfiber material and a water-repellent inner structure so that the feet don’t sweat too much. Now available in stores, the MTB shoes go to the new owner for € 139.95 (RRP).
