Last winter Gaerne introduced two new shoe families for both road and mountain bikers looking for the latest in premium carbon soles and lightweight synthetic uppers. But both the range-topping G.Stilo+ & G.Sincro+ road & trail shoes and the corresponding G.Chrono+ & G.Kobra+ shoes still ended up with high price tags. Now with a teaser ahead of Eurobike later this month, Gaerne has let slip the new G.Hurricane. It still keeps a flexible synthetic upper, Boa dial closure, and the option of a carbon sole, all while dramatically chopping the price. It looks like there is even an equally affordable road version too in the newest iteration of the G.Tornado…


The new G.Hurricane is much more affordable mountain bike option from the Italian shoemaker. Like its more expensive siblings, it still gets a laser perforated synthetic upper, paired with mesh inserts. The G.Hurricane gets Boa dial closure, but this time opts for single wire loop & a one L6 reel per shoe to keep cost down.

It shares the same soft rubber outsole for long lasting grip as the Kobra, whether you opt for the stiffer, lighter carbon or more affordable reinforced nylon sole. The shoe also molded heel cup for a secure fit, plus removable toe studs for customizable grip in a wide range of conditions.


The carbon soled variant of the new G.Hurricane is just 200€, while the version with the 2density fiber reinforced sole comes down to just 160€. That looks to make the Hurricanes a solid deal, 100€ cheaper than the Kobra+ and 170€ less than the Sincro+.

As for colors, this new silver is set to join black, white, orange & fluo yellow versions.

Like the Hurricane, Gaerne has an equally affordable road version called the G.Tornado that shares the same construction. The Tornado also offers a carbon-soled or reinforced polymer soled version, both of which keep the pricetag under 200€.
