LIGHT FEELS RIGHT.Nothing can hold you down when you lighten up with the Empireâ„¢ SLX. At just 185g per shoe with pro-level performance and unrivaled comfort right out-of-the-box, the Empire SLX lets you fly in first class style.
To make a minimalist shoe that retains the supportive structure of the legendary Empire while advancing the style, we started with a one-piece ultralight monofilament â€œSynchwireâ€ mesh upper designed around a classic laced closure to fit and feel like a second skin. Thermal-welded TeijinÂ® TPU adds structural support exactly where itâ€™s needed, and a high-modulus EastonÂ® EC90â„¢ SLX2 carbon fiber plate provides ultimate stiffness-to-weight for power transfer. Our adjustable Super Natural Fit footbed system is the final touch, allowing you to customize arch support right out of the box for luxurious comfort and optimal pedaling efficiency.
