Canadian Cycling Magazine posted a review of the updated Surge Pro road shoe, detailing its evolution from the shoe's original design and describing it as “very light, very comfortable.”
“Giant has created a shoe with an innovative sole using its ExoBeam technology,” wrote tester Sam Cohen. “It continues to be a one-of-a-kind design that adds stiffness to a sole. The ExoBeam is a carbon-fiber beam that’s most prominent under the arch and heel of the shoe. Compared with a flat sole, it allows Giant to take quite a lot of material out of the midsole and thereby save weight. The current iteration of the ExoBeam, in contrast to that of 2015, is integrated more smoothly into the outsole. You don’t feel as ‘perched’ when you are clomping around off the bike.”
Describing the Surge Pro's performance and fit, Cohen wrote: “This shoe feels great out of the box. With arch-support options, two BOA dials to snug things up in conjunction with the ExoWrap, which not only pulls down on the foot (as most fastening systems do) but up as well. The shoe is very light, very comfortable. As Giant’s top of the line shoe, it not only works for the pro CCC Team, but it will help you power your bike along the flats and up the climbs.”
