The Giro Men's Privateer R Shoes break on the scene as a refreshing update to the original Privateer, preserving all the qualities riders loved in the classic hardworking trail shoe and updating the outsole to co molded nylon and rubber for an impeccable mix of comfort, stiffness, and grip. Minor updates aside, the Privateer R still cuts a streamlined profile to add a touch of class to any day on the trail. The Privateer R's closure system consists of a ratcheting buckle at the top and two hook and loop straps across the midfoot and toes that are easily adjustable on the fly for a secure, comfortable fit. The upper is made of soft, breathable microfiber and features perforations for added cooling and a sleek, minimalist profile. Giro incorporates a co molded nylon and rubber outsole with grippy, high traction lugs for confident foot placement on and off the bike. Toe box reinforcement increases the Privateer R's lifespan, with a rubber toe guard to protect your piggies when the going gets rough. The outsole's tread pattern also accommodates flat pedal riding while providing debris clearance for two bolt clipless pedals, so they'll travel with you between disciplines.
