Italian marque Gaerne have been making top-notch cycling shoes for more than half a century, and their newest flagship footwear, the G.Stilo+, only bolsters that reputation.
Launched at the tail end of last year, the new-for-2017 update on the original Gaerne Stilo has shaved a little weight off its predecessor and also introduces a new heel cup and modified sole. Basically, Gaerne have been working to make this shoe as light, stiff and comfortable as possible.
Gaerne have made the carbon sole as thin as can be to decrease the stack height and keep the rider’s foot as close to the pedal as possible, all in the name of power transfer. Needless to say, and as we’ve already mentioned, stiffness is also the name of the game here – if you lose that town sign sprint, you certainly won’t be able to blame your footwear.
