The Sector, the latest in off-road footwear from Giro, makes use of a double Boa dial design and the brand’s Synchwire upper found in its top-end Imperial road shoe. This single-piece upper design creates a soft and breathable fit, but because this is an off-road shoe, Giro has added additional heel and toe reinforcement. The upper is combined with a thermo-bonded exo-structure, while a carbon-composite plate should make for high power transfer. For traction that lasts, Giro has included an aggressive dual-injected rubber outsole that’s designed to not break down or delaminate as you walk through gravel and dirt roads.
To add more comfort to the Sector, Giro has included a 3D-molded footbed with medium arch support. And two L6 Boa dials allow for micro-adjustment of just 1 millimeter at a time. The Sector is also available in a women’s-specific Sector W version. Giro says the Sector weighs 342 grams per shoe (size 42.5), while the Sector W weighs in at 323 grams per shoe (39.5). Both versions cost $225 and are available now.
The Sector will be available in 39–50 in whole sizes, and 42.5-45.5 half-sizes. The Sector W comes in 36–43 in women’s whole sizes, and 37.5-42.5 in half-sizes.
