You've seen knit technology in athletic footwear, but you haven't seen it in cycling until now. The women's-specific Empire™ E70 W Knit features our new engineered Xnetic™ Knit upper, which offers unparalleled comfort and breathability. Xnetic Knit technology was developed for the specific needs of a cyclist. An internal TPU skeletal system provides support where you need it, while the knit offers suppleness for superior sock-like comfort. The upper is DWR-treated for water repellences and easy cleaning, and a TPU-reinforced toe and heel add durability and abrasion resistance. Plus, the style of the Empire E70 Knit is simply undeniable.
• Xnetic™ Knit features a TPU skeletal system bonded to a knit material, providing support where you need it while the knit offers suppleness and breathability, for sock-like comfort and superb ventilation. Xnetic™ Knit is also DWR-treated for water repellences and easy cleaning, and reinforced with rubber or TPU toe / heel guards to enhance abrasion resistance and durability.
