The Empire™ VR90 is renowned as one of the lightest and most comfortable shoes you can get for off-road and gravel riding, with comfort and durability that redefine expectations. It starts with a one-piece TEIJIN® Samo™ upper that won’t stretch or sag regardless of wear or weather, and features the now iconic laced closure for unrivaled feel and adjustability. Inside, our adjustable SuperNatural Fit footbed lets you finetune the fit and arch support for maximum pedaling efficiency. The Easton® EC90 full carbon outsole and molded Vibram® rubber tread combine to provide pro-level stiffness and pedaling performance, with reliably relentless grip when you’re off the bike. It’s the total package for everything from XC racing to long-distance gravel rides and mixed-road adventures.
