The Charge is engineered to give you every advantage in off-road riding and racing. Built on Giant’s Motion Efficiency System, it features the incredibly efficient and comfortable ExoBeam sole, ExoWrap enclosure and ExoFlex technologies, so you can keep it pinned from start to finish.
MES, Motion Efficiency System
ExoBeam, full carbon outsole with nylon injected nylon studs.
Exo Wrap construction
Two BOA IP1 closure- mirror design, more natural for tighten (clockwise on the right shoe but counter-clockwise on the left shoe)
Featured in off-road models because it allows the toe area of the shoe to move independently of the ExoBeam sole for superior traction when running or walking up steep climbs ExoFlex also reduces heel slip, making it ideal for cyclocross or trail riders.
While the upper part of the most shoes are designed to simply pull the foot down toward the sole, ExoWrap fully supports the foot by also pulling up, creating a customized arch support and super-snug heel fit, without the need for special insoles or heel cup designs. This technology also optimizes the fit benefits of the BOA closure system.
Combines a stiff and highly efficient pedaling platform with just enough torsional flex to allow natural foot, ankle and knee movements during the pedal stroke, for supreme comfort during power transfer. The “beam” and strategically engineered flex zones replace the traditional ultra-stiff plate sole found in most performance cycling shoes.
This re-designed sole works in harmony with the ExoWrap foot enclosure, keeping the foot wrapped securely during power transfer into the pedal stroke, while preserving the natural mechanics of the body.
