Details

At just 185g per shoe with pro-level performance and unrivaled comfort, the Empire SLX lets you fly in first-class style.

To make a minimalist shoe that retains the supportive structure of the legendary Empire while advancing the style, we started with a one-piece ultralight monofilament Synchwire mesh upper designed around a classic laced closure to fit and feel like a second skin. Thermal-welded Teijin TPU adds structural support exactly where its needed, and a high-modulus Easton EC90 SLX2 carbon fiber plate provides ultimate stiffness to weight for power transfer. Our adjustable Super Natural Fit footbed system is the final touch, allowing you to customize arch support right out of the box for luxurious comfort and optimal pedaling efficiency.

- One-piece upper design
- Premium Evofiber SL breathable Teijin microfiber upper
- Empire laces: hold a knot, durable, and light
- Easton EC90 SLX2 high-modulus carbon
- Titanium hardware
- Replaceable heel pads
- Ultralight Super Natural fit kit with adjustable arch support
- Ultralight footbed

Cycling shoes use cleats to attach the shoe to the pedal. Cleats are sold with pedals or as replacements and come in two distinct styles:

2-bolt or SPD
Used primarily on mountain shoes

3-bolt or Look/SPD-SL
