There are more cycling shoe companies out there than one could shake a frame pump at. But, aside from the big name players in the cycling footwear segment, there are some lesser-known brands like Crono, who’ve been turning out cutting-edge shoes from a time when most of their competitors were still going through puberty. And, if one were to dig a little deeper, they would also discover that the Italian brand was responsible for making high-end shoes for many well-known labels over the years as well. Think other premium brands before they out-sourced to the Far-East.
Based in Callalta in the Treviso region of Italy, Crono offers a range of cycling shoes that span the road, mountain bike and triathlon categories. However, the storied Italian brand has now stepped into the gravel/bikepacking segments with the launch of its new CG1, which gives a nod cycling’s past courtesy of its retro lace system.
“Our first dedicated gravel shoe designed to go off-road in style and tough it out over rough terrain on long gravel tours or multi-day bikepacking trips,” boasts Crono.
Other features of the CG1 include a microfiber upper with PU reinforcement at the toe, an anti-slip internal profile with a TPU reinforced heel to support the foot and ankle and a Carbo-Composite sole that’s specially designed to discharge mud so riders won’t get stuck. The shoes also come with three sets of different colored laces.
The new Crono CG1 sells for 159,90€, which is available in sizes ranging from 37 to 48, with half sizes in 41.5 to 44.5.
Also, Crono says customers can have the CG1 in any color they want, as long as it’s black.
