Soft Instep 3
The wide, curved strap of the Soft Instep Closure System combines with a thermo-formed EVA pad to distribute pressure evenly over the instep area. Sidi have made the system adjustable from either side so you can center the pad perfectly. You can replace the entire system to ensure your shoe performs to the top level even after years of wear.
Vent Carbon Sole
A replaceable polyurethane heel pad and replaceable integrated toe pad/vent cover give your shoe excellent walkability. The light weight and stiff properties of the Vent Carbon Sole allow for high performing power transfer. Designed with integrated vent and air channels, the resulting heat dissipation and air flow make for comfortable warm weather wearing. With the option to open or close the vents you can be sure of comfort whatever the weather.
A weave pattern carbon fibre construction maximizes the soles stiffness while allowing for a small degree of flex in the toes. This carefully designed flex biomechanically relieves stress on the plantar tendon and helps promote circulation. A standard 3-hole drilling pattern, printed 10 mm lateral, fore/aft cleat alignment scale and the Look Memory Eyelet combine to result in an easy cleat usage system. You'll be able to replace and align your cleats with ease for your perfect fit and positioning. The vents also assist water draining, helping you lose the water after a wet triathlon transition.
The dials of Sidi's Techno-3 System are placed along the length of the shoe so you can adapt the upper shape to fit your needs. A proprietary non-binding wire material means that the dials can be quickly adjusted on the fly with minimal effort. Sidi's knack for making great systems that can be serviced or replaced continues with the Techno-3 System.
Adjustable Heel Retention Device
Simultaneously reinforcing the heel cup and adding yet more tweakable fit options, the Adjustable Heel Retention Device closes the back of the shoe securely around your heel. This way, the back of the heel stays in place better during steep climbs or sprints. The system is light weight, easy to use and fully replaceable.
Sidi Heel Cup
A reinforced heel helps hold your feet in an optimal position. The extra strength also prevents the shoe losing its shape when exposed to prolonged pressure and extreme performance, so you can ride with confidence.
About Road Shoes
Road racing cycling shoes are designed without compromise to provide optimum power transfer between your foot and the pedal, a good quality road cycling shoe is a wise investment for performance and weight saving and is often overlooked. High-tech materials and precision manufacture keep weight down and stiffness up, this means your rotational mass is lower and power transfer is higher, resulting in more forward momentum for your effort.
About the Sidi brand
Back in the early seventies, most cyclists just nailed cleats to the soles of their shoes. Of course that sounds crazy to people today. But it sounded crazy to Dino Signori way back then. Sidi’s Genius road shoe is one of the most popular shoes in the professional peloton and it's worn by folks with names like Rominger, Pontoni, and Luperin. But Signori's aspirations aren't limited to the road circuit. The challenge he’s set for himself and for Sidi is to provide every kind of cyclist with the best shoe for the job it road, off-road, cyclo-cross, or even triathlon. Granted, a lot of people might think trying to be the best at everything is crazy. But then again, a lot of people thought nailing cleats to the soles of their shoes was a good idea.
