Giro Empire ACC re­flec­tive shoes £229.99

Cycling Weekly - - Road Tested -

When light shines on these shoes, they re­flect and be­come bright white. The re­flec­tion is only vis­i­ble when you view the shoes in the same plane as the pro­jected light, but it is impressive when you see it and it cer­tainly in­creases your vis­i­bil­ity to driv­ers.

Ar­guably most road cy­clists will only ride in the dark when com­mut­ing, and I wouldn’t want to spend this kind of money on a com­mut­ing shoe. But for those that do, they are very com­fort­able, lightweight and stiff.

Also in­cluded is a boot bag and ad­justable foot beds adapt­able for your arch height. Although not quite as light and stiff as the more ex­pen­sive Empire SLX, this is not an is­sue un­less you are a par­tic­u­larly pow­er­ful sprinter. 215g (size 42) Oliver Bridge­wood www.zyro.co.uk
