Giro Chamber 2 Clipless Shoes
The Giro Chamber II is the latest incarnation of the original EWS and DH World Cup-winning shoe. The Chamber 2 has an incredibly secure and comfortable fit, with an updated Tri-Mold constructed internal shank providing optimal stiffness and flex for your foot, resulting in improved power efficiency and pedal connection.
Featuring a 10mm cleat setback allowing you to position the pedals further back under the arch of the foot for better foot positioning on steep and technical terrain. This also provides a more positive foot placement and reduces foot fatigue.
A water-resistant reinforced microfiber upper and an incredibly durable Vibram® Megagrip rubber outsole means the Chamber 2 can handle wet weather as much as dry, even when pushing the bike on wet and slippery surfaces.
With a stylish skate-style appearance, the Chamber II is a world-class downhill shoe with design input from the legend Aaron Gwin. The Giro Chamber 2 has reached a new level of performance with a top to bottom overhaul resulting in a stylish and high-performance shoe that will continue to win world championship titles.

Comfortable and grippy alternative that's worth a look
by Bob -
Having tried FiveTen and Specialized 2FO in the past, I thought to give the Giro Chamber 2 a go and I'm super-glad I did. This is a really great shoe. Firstly sizing is accurate to the chart and is a wide fit which immediately provides luxury accommodation for your toes. The tongue is more generously padded than some FiveTens and the perforations in the upper are large enough to let the fresh air in, but keep the occasional splash from a water crossing out. Extra padding around the heel hugs the back of your Achilles and does a good job to stop any heel-lift even when heaving on the pedals. The toe feels well protected with good reinforcement and a solid toe bumper. Lace up closure has good quality laces and the velcro strap is just the right length with no extra to flap in the breeze. On the whole, the fit is just like a regular pair of skate shoes, super comfy for all day shenanigans. One thing I will say though is that they are a deep shoe. Great if you have feet like Hagrid, but if you have dainty, ballerina feet like me, an insole is the way to go. Next to the fit and comfort, the sole would have to be the other standout of these shoes. The Vibram rubber is mega-grippy despite the lack of 'conventional' lugs and treads. I was surprised just how well this sole found traction on wet rocks, mud and roots given that it has a pretty standard skate flat sole. Other shoes of this type that I have tried were sketchy in such situations, and to be honest I thought that the Giro Chamber 2 would be the same, but not so. The sole is also super-stiff right where you need it between the cleat and the heel, but flexible from the cleat to the toe. This adds to the overall comfort of the shoes a great deal when hiking up a slope or heading to the barista to make an order. One other nice touch is the extra length in the cleat slots. Might sound like a small thing, but placing the cleat just back from the ball of the foot eases calf fatigue heaps on a long descent. Hmm, think it's time I found me one of those...adios.
