The Giro Gauge is a staff favorite here at Omafiets. Its a relatively light shoe, reasionably breathable for warm weather and has a full rubber sole for walking, hiking or a bit of scrambling arround offroad.
Lots of shop staff have used it as their daily commuter and also for rough bikepacking touring trips.
THE GAUGE IS AN ATHLETIC APPROACH TO MOUNTAIN BIKE FOOTWEAR, MADE TO INSPIRE CONFIDENCE FOR EVERYTHING FROM SPIRITED TRAIL RIDING TO SOULFUL BIKEPACKING ADVENTURES.
It combines cycling-specific features like clipless pedal compatibility and supportive fit, with the reliable grip of an aggressively lugged rubber outsole and the feel of a trail running shoe. With an upper made from supple synthetic fiber and breathable mesh, and a stout injected-nylon inner shank to help transfer your power to the pedals, it's a capable cycling shoe that gives you the confidence to take on any trail.
