Sidi Wire Carbon Vernice Shoes
The anatomical and comfortable strap, placed on the top of the foot and coupled with a soft and thermo-formed material, will increase comfort and performance. It distributes pressure evenly over the arch area, adjustable from both sides to achieve the perfect center position. The system eliminates the need for the High Instep Extender. The Soft Instep 3 is serviceable and replaceable.
Tecno - 3 Push System
SIDIs new Techno-3 dials in fit along the entire length of the shoe, adapting the upper to the shape of the foot for a customized fit. SIDI's famously reliable and replaceable closures are improved by an all new proprietary SIDI Wire material that is completely non-binding for intuitive and effortless on-the-fly adjustments. Like most SIDI small parts, the Tecno-3 Push Buckle is serviceable and replaceable.
Adjustable Heel Retention Device
The adjustable heel retention device reinforces the top of the heel cup and improves the fit by closing the back of the shoe securely around the riders ankle. The heel retention device tightens the top of the heel cup so that it doesn't side-out during steep climbs or sprints. It can be adjusted with two small screws that work independently from each other. For a custom adjustment turn the screw towards the + sign to tighten the heel retention device and towards the - sign to open it.
Sidi Heel Cup
The reinforced heel keeps the foot in a optimal position and avoids the shoe being deformed by extreme performance or prolonged pressure.
Replaceable Heel Pad
For walkability, Sidi cycling shoes include a replaceable polyurethane heel pad.
Vent Carbon Sole
SIDI engineers have shaved additional weight off the Vent Carbon Sole, which now features an ultra-light heelpad and a replaceable integrated toe pad/vent cover. The key benefits of the Vent Carbon Sole are not only superior power transfer, because of its light weight and stiffness, but also warm weather comfort. The Vent Carbon Sole is designed with an integrated vent and air channels for heat dissipation and air flow. The vent leads to two longitudinal airflow channels molded into the carbon sole that direct air to perforations under the forefoot area (SIDI's Comfort-Fit insoles have matching perforations for unimpeded airflow). The vent can be opened or closed for 4-season comfort.
The Vent Carbon Sole is handmade exclusively of carbon fiber in a weave pattern oriented at opposing angles that maximize stiffness while allowing for a small degree of controlled flex in the toe area. This carefully designed flex biomechanically relieves stress on the plantar tendon and helps promote circulation. The Vent Carbon Sole features a standard 3-hole drilling pattern, printed 10mm lateral and fore/aft cleat alignment scale as well as the Look Memory Eyelet for easy cleat alignment and replacement. To improve walkability, the Vent Carbon Sole is designed with replaceable polyurethane heel and toe pads. For triathlon, the vent also serves as a water drain, dramatically improving foot comfort after a wet transition.
