VENT CARBON SOLE
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 airflow. The vent can be opened or closed. The 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 planar 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. For triathlon, the vent also serves as a water drain, dramatically improving foot comfort after a wet transition. For walkability, the sole features a light and replaceable polyurethane heelpad and a replaceable integrated toe pad/vent cover.
SOFT INSTEP CLOSURE SYSTEM
The Soft Instep Closure System is a wide, anatomically curved strap combined with a soft, thermo-formed EVA pad that distributes pressure evenly over the instep area. The Soft Instep Closure System is adjustable from both sides, to perfectly center the EVA pad over a high or low instep. The Soft Instep Closure System is replaceable.
Sidi’s Tecno-3 System 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 System is serviceable and replaceable.
HIGH SECURITY VELCRO
High Security Velcro straps with integrated locking polymer teeth, that engage onto each other when the strap is closed. This feature makes the closure more secure and the strap becomes unmovable.
ADJUSTABLE HEEL RETENTION DEVICE
New technology for the heel cup system; The adjustable heel retention device reinforces the top of the heel cup and improves fit by closing the back of the shoe more securely around the rider’s ankle. It tightens the top of the heel cup so that it doesn’t slip during steep climbs or sprints. For adjustment, turn the screw towards the + sign to tighten and towards the – sign to loosen.
SIDI HEEL CUP
The reinforced heel keeps the foot in an optimal position and avoids the shoe being deformed by extreme performance or prolonged pressure. It also affords extra protection in the case of a crash.
REPLACEABLE HEEL PAD
For walkability, Sidi cycling shoes include a replaceable polyurethane heel pad.
