The Techlace System — Light, Fast and exceptionally comfortable
At <150 grams per shoe in size 42.5, the Prolight™ Techlace™ is an extraordinary innovation in pro-level cycling footwear. This bold new design combines our patented Techlace™ closure system with a custom monofilament fiber that is welded and reinforced with a Teijin(R) TPU film. The result is an ultralight upper that provides the support needed for cycling while enhancing durability and ventilation.
Our patent-pending Techlace system couples the natural comfort and light weight of laces with the convenience of a strap for superb fit and easy adjustment on-the-fly. By replacing D-rings and other hardware with laces, the Techlace system not only saves weight, but also provides a more supple feel across the forefoot to enhance comfort. The laces can also be easily swapped to customize fit or style, and they're easy to replace if damaged.
