Giro’s new Terraduro all-mountain/trail ride shoes just showed up on our doorstep and before we get them all dirty, we thought you’d like a peek. We first showed the Terraduro back in our Interbike coverage, but Giro have since revised the buckle from those pre-production versions resulting in what we have here.
Designed in consultation with Team Giant enduro/cross country/cyclocross/anything-with-two-wheels honch Adam Craig, the Terraduro’s are intended to both be efficient pedalers, as well as have the flex and grip to handle the occasional off-bike rock scramble.
The shoes feature breathable microfiber uppers; Giro’s MR-2 replaceable, ratcheting buckle closure; an offset strap D-ring hook-and-loop closure at mid-foot; and a rubber toe cap.
The outsole is covered in sticky Vibram high-traction rubber, and has a molded SPD-compatible shank that’s been optimized to allow for a more aft cleat placement—a position many riders prefer in more technical situations, according to Giro.
The interior footbed is a molded EVA affair that’s coated with an anti-microbial treatment called Aegis to reduce odors and general foot mank.
Available in black or orange, the 420-gram shoes also come in a women’s configuration under the name Terradura and retail for $180.
Look for a full review down the road as we put these new trail dogs to the test.
