The Flow is engineered to give you every advantage in offroad trail riding and enduro racing. Built on Giant's Motion Efficiency System, it features the incredibly efficient and comfortable ExoBeam sole, ExoWrap enclosure and ExoFlec technologies, so you can keep it pinned from start to finish.
ExoBeam provides efficient power application while allowing flex in key areas to reduce strain and tension on the lower leg.
ExoWrap works in harmony with the ExoBeam to provide a 360 degree enclosure for customizeable fit.
Slip Last construction used in high performance track and field applications allows the forefoot to be stiff while enabling torsional rotation of the rear and mid foot.
Unique composite sole technology combines stiffness in the forefoot, where most of a rider’s power is applied, with strategically engineered flex to reduce tension and strain in the lower leg. The result is enhanced power transfer, a more precise fit, and optimized efficiency.
Works in harmony with the ExoBeam to produce a unique 360-degree foot enclosure for a fit that feels customized. The design optimizes foot support by pulling up on the arch, which helps improve power transfer, comfort and efficiency.
Built-in flex zone allows the toe area of the shoe to move independently of the main ExoBeam carbon sole to optimize the natural flex of the toes and reduce heel slip on and off the bike. Decreased heel slip means less of a chance of chaffing and foreign objects like small rocks entering the shoe.
Unique Slip-Last Construction, a process used in high-performance track and field shoes, allows the forefoot to be stiff while enabling torsional rotation of the rear and mid foot.
A lightweight, seamless KPU upper material provides excellent protection and ventilation and features a single ratchet buckle system with two hook-and-loop straps to provide simple on-the-fly adjustments.
A full-coverage rubber tread protects the carbon ExoBeam plate and offers excellent traction. Design also includes an injection-molded TPU heel cover that provides a firm fit without any slip and a toebox to protect the front of the foot from obstacles on the trail.
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.
