Some weeks ago, it was been reported that GIANT Italia Team will be represented at the Olympic Games in Beijing by 2 athletes, one being female Slovenian rider Blaza Klemencic.
Their participation is an extraordinary opportunity for the Team managed by the Technical Manager Gianfranco Bechis as usual, as well as for all its partners, who are going to promote at the best this occasion and their partnership.
GIANT Italia Team’s trip to the country, described by Marco Polo with a lot of interesting and amazing details, will be characterized by various news and technical solutions, that will be presented in Beijing for the first time.
Between them, the first to be revealed is referred to the shoes, the athletes will use during the race running off next 22 and 23 August in the track Laoshan Mountain Bike Course.
Shimano M-300 shoes Olympic version are all white – as the background, the 5 Olympic rings are usually presented – and they have been realised by a double personalisation : the flag of the country, the athlete comes from, and its name/surname.
This double personalisation has been created for the Olympic Games of Beijing and it appears on the dual straps of these shoes.
This is one of the technical solutions, Shimano develops to create the off-road shoes, GIANT Italia Team’s athletes usually use during the MTB competitions. Between them, we remember the thermo-form insole with antibacterial treatment, the mouldable insole forms to foot for a precise fit, the Carbon fibber mid-sole that transfers the energy straight to the pedals, and allows compliance and grip for hike sections, the micro-adjust buckle and dual offsets straps, securely holds foot and allows subtle adjustments.
