The new Surge Pro shoes are made for decisive bursts on the road and the long hours in between. Race days and training days. Phenomenal power transfer is combined with lightweight comfort and a personalized fit. It’s the lightest, most efficient road shoe ever from Giant, and it’s the top choice for pros including grand tour winner Simon Yates of Team BikeExchange-Jayco.
Key Performance Factors
SUPERIOR POWER TRANSFER
An all-new ExoBeam outsole features a dual-beam design made with ultralight 100% carbon fiber for superior toe-heel stiffness. The unique design significantly boosts power transfer while allowing enough torsional flex for natural foot movement. This helps minimize lower leg strain during the pedal stroke with zero watts wasted.
Most cycling shoe enclosures press the foot down toward the sole. The Surge Pro’s redesigned ExoWrap system draws the foot up into the shoe, using its unique wrap-around design and new micro-adjust Li2 Boa® reels. The result is a 360-degree foot closure that gives you an ultra-comfortable and personalized fit.
A new polyurethane coated mesh upper with laser cut micro-perforations delivers maximum ventilation combined with long-lasting durability. The seams are welded rather than sewn, which helps minimize weight and gives these road shoes a sleek profile with a supple feel.
From its superlight and ultra-efficient ExoBeam outsole with a new dual-beam carbon structure to the redesigned ExoWrap system’s 360-degree foot closure, the next-generation Surge Pro delivers superior power transfer, a personalized fit, and all-day comfort for high-performance road riding. Here’s a look at some of its key technologies:
MOTION EFFICIENCY SYSTEM
Combines a stiff and efficient pedaling platform with just enough torsional flex to reduce pressure and strain in the lower leg. The result is a more natural foot movement through the pedal stroke to optimize comfort, power transfer and efficiency.
DUAL-BEAM CARBON PLATE
Next-generation ExoBeam outsole features a dual-beam plate made with 100% ultralight carbon fiber. The result is reduced overall weight, greater toe-heel stiffness, and improved power transfer.
360-DEGREE FOOT CLOSURE
New internal ExoWrap works with the ExoBeam outsole to produce an ultra-comfortable, 360-degree foot closure for a customizable fit that draws the foot up rather than pressing it down like most cycling shoe closures.
LI2 BOA® FIT SYSTEM
Two micro-adjust Li2 Boa® reels featuring Dyneema® textile laces on each shoe provide a direct pull on the ExoWrap closure for a super secure and comfortable feel along with a personalized fit.
VENTILATED WRAP-AROUND UPPER
Polyurethane coated mesh wrap-around upper features laser cut micro-perforations for maximum ventilation and long-lasting durability. The seams are welded rather than sewn, which helps minimize weight and gives the shoe a sleek profile with a supple feel.
TRANSTEXTURA™ PLUS SOCKLINER
Removable sock liner with tunable arch support and TransTextura Plus™ antimicrobial layer offers a balanced foot climate for a cool, comfortable feel.
New last design offers all-day comfort for a wide variety of foot shapes and sizes.
SECURE HEEL FIT
Ergonomically designed heel cup features grippy SharkSkin material to provide a secure, no-slip fit.
BOA Fit System
The perfect fit for a better ride. The BOA Fit System delivers even pressure distribution and better power transfer to improve your ride.
ExoBeam is a unique sole technology that combines stiffness in the forefoot, where most of a rider’s power is applied, with strategically engineered flex zones that reduce tension and strain in the lower leg by allowing the foot to move in a more natural way. ExoBeam puts the stiffness where it needs to be and allows just enough flex in other areas of the shoe.
ExoWrap works in harmony with the ExoBeam to produce a unique 360-degree foot enclosure for customizable fit and support. While most shoe enclosures simply pull the foot down toward the sole, ExoWrap fully supports the foot by also pulling up.
Motion Efficiency System
Motion Efficiency System combines a stiff and efficient pedaling platform with just enough torsional flex to reduce pressure and strain in the lower leg. The result is a more natural foot movement during the pedal stroke to optimize comfort, power transfer and efficiency.
Sharkskin Heel Cup
Ergonomically designed heel cup features grippy material to provide a secure, no-slip fit.
