It’s 1960, and Dino Signori is unhappy. The problem is his cycling shoes— they’re leather-soled lace-ups with nail-on cleats, a design unchanged since the first Giro d’Italia was held in 1909, 50 years prior. As a racer, Dino Signori is keenly aware that cycling shoes are the foundation of the whole rider/ bicycle connection. He knows how much bicycles have improved since that first Giro. So he decides it’s time shoes followed suit, establishing his first workshop in Maser, in Italy’s Treviso province, and names it by taking the first two letters of his last and first names—SIDI. As a former racer, Dino Signori is keenly aware that cycling shoes are the foundation of the whole rider/bicycle connection. He knows how much bicycles have improved since he stopped racing, and he decides it’s time shoes followed suit. He’s just the man to do it, with decades of experience crafting motorcycle boots and ski boots for Olympic athletes under his belt, and he draws on this experience, emerging from his workshop with the first pair of cycling shoes to feature adjustable cleat position. It’s the dawn of the modern cycling shoe era, and SIDI was there first. That adjustable cleat design was quickly copied by every other shoemaker in cycling, establishing a trend that continues to this day. SIDI innovates. Others copy. And in this way, the design of the modern cycling shoe evolves.

Tecno 3 Buckle In 1966 Mr. Dino creates the first ever monofilament line closure system with a rotor buckle for use on the ski boots of the Italian Olympic Champion Marielle Vautcel. In 1988, 22 years after inventing the monofilament line closure

system with a rotor buckle, Mr. Dino patents it for use in a cycling shoe.

The patent covers a closure placed on the heel as well as on the instep. Three adjustments are shown: tightening across the instep, across the forefoot, and around the heel. The latest version of that system, SIDI’s NEW Tecno 3 buckles, adjust fit across the forefoot and the toe of the shoe. The precision ratchet closure mechanism is easily adjusted using two buttons that can be pressed to incrementally loosen the buckle, one ratchet tooth at a time. Lift and turn the center buckle to tighten the shoe. To open completely, push on both buttons while pulling on the soft instep closure system. SIDI’s famously reliable and replaceable closures are improved by an ALL NEW proprietary SIDI Wire material, an extremely supple braided synthetic material that’s very low friction, for completely nonbinding action and extremely even pressure distribution across the closure. Like most SIDI small parts, the Tecno 3 Buckle is serviceable and replaceable.

S Overall weight reduction of 60 grams per pair compared to Ergo 3. S ALL NEW Upper featuring two NEW Tecno 3 buckles to independently adjust fit across the forefoot and toe of the shoe.

The NEW Wire is 100% pure performance with zero compromise, SIDI’s latest go-to shoe for WorldTour athletes and pros everywhere. Wire features an ALL NEW Tecno 3 closure system utilizing an exceptionally supple, low-friction line material for unimpeded action without binding. It provides extremely even pressure distribution across the entire foot, for perfect fit with uncompromising comfort and pedaling efficiency. Tecno 3 micro-ratcheting buckles allow easy one-click adjustment in either direction, for simple fine-tuning on the fly. Snug ‘em up, and you’re ready to throw down.

S IMPROVED Vent Carbon Sole: Same incredible stiffness with vents that can be opened and closed for 4-season comfort. S Adjustable Heel Retention Device: SIDI’s revolutionary closure that adjusts the fit around the top of the heel cup to eliminate heel lift during the pedal stroke.

S NEW Comfort Fit insoles feature a thin layer of memory foam for lightweight support and an antibacterial treatment. S Lighter, more ergonomic Soft Instep Closure System and padded tongue eliminate pressure points. Sizes: 39-48, half-sizes 39.5-46.5 White Vernice, Yellow Fluorescent/Black Vernice $499.99

Adjustable Heel Security System (HSS)

The Adjustable HSS, introduced in 2006, reinforces the top of the heel cup and adjusts to securely close around the heel just above the calcaneus (heel bone), eliminating power-robbing heel lift during the pedal stroke. Like most SIDI small parts, the Adjustable HSS is replaceable, and also available as an aftermarket upgrade to 2007 thru 2009 SIDI models (with the non-adjustable HSS).

Secrets of the Pros: Many of SIDI’s sponsored pros specifically request the SIDI Eleven Carbon/Composite sole because of its perfect balance of comfort, light weight and power transfer—it’s slightly less stiff, for more comfort on long days without sacrificing ultimate power. And it’s the foundation for the NEW FIVE, pairing the 11 sole with SIDI’s beloved upper technology: Caliper Buckle two-way ratchet closure, SIDI’s no-slip High Security Velcro® straps and, above all, SIDI’s trademark fit, and the comfort that comes with it—extending from perfectly formed toe box to SIDI heel cup.

U.S. National Road Race Champion Timmy Duggan and National Criterium Champ Ken Hanson (celebrating) both put the power down through SIDIs. Coincidence? Not likely.

Katie Spotz doesn’t shy away from a challenge. She’s the youngest person to row a boat, solo, across the Atlantic. And in 2012, she set out to compete in Race Across America to raise funds and attention for clean water awareness, particularly in Africa. With just a week to go she was in an accident, breaking her pelvis, but instead of hanging it up she learned how to operate a hand-cycle, and went for it anyway. Conquering challenges is what makes a champion. Sometimes you ride against yourself. Sometimes you ride against the status quo. The important thing is to ride.

WINTER COMMUTING IS HARD. SO IS WINTER TRAINING But if you can tough it out, well, you’ll be a monster on the bike come spring. Which is why SIDI’s Hydro GTX is one of the best-kept secrets among early-season speedsters. Keep your feet warm and happy racking up miles on those lonely winter training missions, the ones that separate the hard riders from the fair weather cyclists. Weatherproof, breathable uppers keep your feet dry in all conditions. Make wintertime your training time, and get a jump on your early season fitness.

Hydro GTX employs a four-layer upper for optimal durability, weatherproofing and winter comfort. They feature, from the outside in: • Tough exterior of Lorica panels and breathable heavy-duty nylon inserts • Seamless inner Gore-Tex® bootie for waterproof, breathable comfort • Light insulating layer • Soft inner liner The gusseted upper fits snugly around the ankle, creating a waterproof barrier where ordinary shoes would allow water to enter the shoe around the tongue.

Winter Tip For optimal comfort and performance the wide neoprene-and-Velcro® strap must be snug around the ankle, with tights or rain pants tucked around the outside of the boot. The Gore-Tex® bootie is completely waterproof, so if water gets into the shoes—either from a loosely secured ankle cuff, or it’s wicked in by tights or rain pants tucked into the bootie—that water remains trapped inside the shoe. In that event your feet will probably stay warm, but they’ll be wet for the duration of the ride.

Gore certification isn’t for everyone— you have to adhere to rigorous test standards for immersion, pressure, and other parameters that add up to dry winter comfort. Our Diablo GTX and Hydro GTX boots are more than up to the task. And we have the machine to prove it.

This is the unfair advantage—SIDI’s SP Carbon sole allows direct bolt-up of Speedplay cleats without the need for a base plate. That’s less rotating mass, and an even lower stack height than standard Speedplay setups. Translation: Lower saddle height, less frontal area, and a lower center of gravity that adds up to better handling and a killer aero advantage (Speedplay’s wind tunnel testing shows time savings of 33 seconds per hour, about the same as you’d see with an aero front wheel). There’s no other speed equipment in the world that lets you experience SIDI’s legendary fit and comfort, and gives you this kind of aero advantage with crushing power delivery.

SIDI, MTB and Cyclocross: A Historical Note In 1985—more than 15 years before the first MTB-specific clipless pedals appeared in the early 1990s—SIDI introduced the first lugged-sole cycling shoe suitable for mountain biking and cyclocross. Twenty-five years later, SIDI continues to dominate MTB Cross Country Olympic and World Championships.

Caliper Buckle By 1988, clipless road pedals had become the norm, and this presented a new problem— shoe closures were put under tremendous strain, as a pedal stroke’s upward pull had to be entirely absorbed by the shoe without the additional support of a toe strap. Dino Signori’s solution was as revolutionary as it was genius: In 1989, he introduced the first ratcheting buckle closure for cycling shoes, combining the robust holding power and on-the-fly adjustability of toe straps with the strength to withstand the powerful, repetitive pedal stroke of professional racers. It was the SIDI Micro Lock, the first micro-ratcheting buckle. The current Caliper Buckle is the latest incarnation of SIDI’s famed ratcheting shoe closure. It ratchets in both directions, allowing for precise, incremental tightening and loosening of the closure, for easy on-thefly microadjustment. Pulling upward on the lower lever tightens the strap, click by click; pressing down on the upper lever loosens it a step at a time; an outward pull on both side levers completely releases the buckle. Caliper buckles may be retrofitted to older SIDIs, as long as the ratcheting strap is also replaced by the matching Caliper Strap (which fits older versions of the Soft Instep Closure System).

Keep your feet happy racking up miles on those lonely winter training missions, the ones that separate the hard riders from the fair weather cyclists. Make wintertime your fun time, and keep your hard-earned fitness from fall to spring.

Winter Tip

Geoff Proctor has been on SIDIs since 1986—basically the start of his competitive cycling career. And when it comes to American cyclocross, he is Da Man. He’s the U.S. National/U23 cyclocross coach; he runs EuroCrossCamp, helping prepare American juniors for racing in Europe; and he’s the only American on the UCI cyclocross commission. Plus he’s a high school English teacher whose new book, Behind the Stare, follows today’s cyclocross heroes to show what it takes to be on top in one of cycling’s toughest disciplines. Pretty amazing chops. Pretty amazing guy.

For optimal comfort and performance the wide neoprene-and-Velcro® strap must be snug around the ankle, with tights or rain pants tucked around the outside of the boot. The Gore-Tex® bootie is completely waterproof, so if water gets into the shoes—either from a loosely secured ankle cuff, or it’s wicked in by tights or rain pants tucked into the bootie—that water remains trapped inside the shoe. In that event your feet will probably stay warm, but they’ll be wet for the duration of the ride.

SP CARBON The 2013 Vent Carbon Sole is an engineering marvel—stiffer and lighter than SIDI’s all-conquering Carbon Lite Sole, with integrated vents and air channels for heat dissipation and improved comfort. The 2013 Vent Carbon Sole now features a NEW ultralight heelpad and a NEW replaceable integrated toe pad/vent cover. It is specifically engineered for highperformance, high-mileage cyclists. Like all of SIDI’s hand-lay-up carbon soles, the Vent Carbon Sole is constructed in an Italian contract facility that specializes in carbon fiber fabrication, and includes speed merchants Ferrari and Ducati on its client list. It is handmade exclusively of T700 carbon fiber in a 3k weave pattern (competitors’ carbon soles have little carbon fiber content, or use cheaper, lower-modulus T300 carbon fiber), oriented at opposing angles that maximize stiffness while allowing for a small degree of controlled flex in the toe area that biomechanically relieves stress on the plantar tendon and helps promote circulation. The sole is heat- and compression-molded with longitudinal corrugations that improve mechanical stiffness without added material or weight.

The Vent Carbon Sole is not only light but remarkably stiff, deflecting only 1.4 mm in SIDI’s rigidity test, in which a 50 kg (110 lb) weight is suspended from one end of the sole. The vent features a sliding cover for four-season comfort, and leads to two longitudinal airflow channels molded into the carbon sole that direct air underneath the forefoot area’s perforated footbed (SIDI’s Comfort-Fit insoles have matching perforations for unimpeded airflow). The Vent Carbon Sole features a standard 3-hole drilling pattern, printed 10 mm 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. Available on • WIRE Vent Carbon • WIRE Vent Carbon Women’s • Genius 6.6 Vent Carbon • T3.6 Vent Carbon

The SP Carbon Sole provides Speedplay pedal users dramatically improved ergonomics and simplified set-up, lowering stack height by eliminating the need for 3-hole base plates. • The SP Carbon Sole is SPEEDPLAY APPROVED for superior ergonomics, power transfer, light weight and simplified set-up. • Ergonomics: Direct interface between the Speedplay cleat and SP Carbon Sole reduces sole-to-spindle height by 4 mm and allows 6 mm more rearward cleat placement • Power Transfer: Direct interface between the Speedplay cleat and SP Carbon Sole improves lateral rigidity • Light Weight: Eliminating 3-hole base plates reduces set-up weight by 54 grams per pair. (Sole weight is also reduced by 8 grams vs Carbon Lite Sole) • Easy Set-Up: The SP Carbon Sole eliminates the need for 3-bolt base plates and features a printed fore/aft alignment scale The SP Carbon Sole provides a direct interface between the Speedplay cleat and the shoe, and is specifically engineered for high-performance, high-mileage cyclists, with tremendous stiffness and an anatomically precise footbed for maximum power transfer. The SP sole now features a NEW ultra-light heelpad.

ELEVEN Millennium 3 The Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole is engineered for highperformance, high-mileage cyclists, with stiffness for power transfer and some controlled flex in the toe area that biomechanically relieves stress in the plantar tendon. This makes it ideal for triathlon as it helps promote circulation and isn’t as punishing on the foot, leaving you more for the run. The Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole is extremely stiff. In SIDI’s rigidity test, in which a 50 kg (110 lb) weight is suspended from one end of the sole, it deflected only 2.4 mm—54% stiffer than the Millennium 3 sole’s 3.7 mm deflection. The Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole is constructed from layered 3k weave carbon fiber and injected carbon fiber in a matrix of Nylon 12, a mechanically stable material that is completely non-absorbent to water, so it won’t change rigidity from exposure to heat, humidity or from aging. It is an exceptionally light, stiff, durable sole. An anti-slip insert in the toe and replaceable polyurethane heel pad help get you navigate through transitions. The Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole uses a standard 3-hole drilling pattern for compatibility with the best pedal systems available, and includes a printed 10 mm lateral and fore/aft cleat alignment scale on the sole as well as the Look Memory Eyelet for easy cleat alignment and replacement. Available on: • FIVE Carbon • FIVE Carbon Women’s • T3 Carbon • T3 Carbon Women’s

Millennium 3 Carbon Composite Sole features injected carbon fiber in a matrix of Nylon 6, providing 37% more rigidity than a standard nylon sole. The Millennium 3 Carbon Composite Sole is also more durable, completely non waterabsorbent and mechanically stable, meaning it’s less susceptible to changes in stiffness resulting from aging, prolonged usage, and changes in temperature or humidity. An anti-slip toe insert and replaceable polyurethane heel pad are incorporated into the Millennium 3 Carbon Composite Sole, for walkability. The Millennium 3 Carbon Composite Sole uses a standard 3-hole drilling pattern for compatibility with the best pedal systems available, and includes a printed 10 mm lateral and fore/aft cleat alignment scale on the sole as well as the Look Memory Eyelet for easy cleat alignment and replacement.

Drako Carbon SRS Sole In 1999, SIDI revolutionized mountain bike shoe design with the Sole Replacement System (SRS), allowing mountain bikers to replace the most wear-prone part of the shoe—the sole. The NEW Drako Carbon SRS Sole takes comfort and efficiency one step further by dramatically reducing weight (overall shoe weight savings of 100 grams per pair) without sacrificing performance. The Drako Carbon SRS Sole is a pure carbon sole with SIDI’s replaceable tread blocks in the toe and heel. The carbon lay-up provides a slight amount of flex in the toe for a smoother, more natural running gait without compromising the shoe’s excellent stiffness and power transfer while pedaling. As it does in the Vent Carbon and other SIDI soles, this small amount of engineered flex also improves pedaling comfort and biomechanical efficiency by relieving plantar tendon strain. The sole is engineered for the high-performance, high-mileage cyclist who requires a sole that is rigid but does not compromise the foot’s blood circulation, guaranteeing excellent comfort and great power transfer. The Dragon SRS Sole tread are easily removable and replaceable. The Dragon SRS Sole® is toe spike compatible. * Most Dual-Retention Bar type MTB Pedals (such as Crank Brothers and LOOK) recommend using a reinforcement plate between the cleat and the shoe in order to prevent damage to the sole. The Drako cleat wear plate can be replaced in case of damage from the pedal system, so a reinforcement plate is optional.

Sole Replacement System (SRS) Sole Replacement System (SRS) In 1999, SIDI revolutionized mountain bike shoe design with the Sole Replacement System (SRS), allowing mountain bikers to replace the most wear-heavy part of the shoe—the sole. Today, versions of the SRS sole are found on the Drako and the Spider. Since the tread is replaceable, SIDI can use an aggressive, softer durometer in the tread for increased traction in slippery conditions. Like most SIDI small parts, the SRS tread panels and screws are available as spare parts. The SRS sole on the Spider models features a more generously sized polyurethane antislip insert beneath the instep, which helps during less-than-perfect cyclocross remounts, making it ideal for cyclocross racers. For 2013, the Spider SRS sole is produced in a firmer durometer than previous years to increase tread life for cyclecross racers and MTBers in “push” situations.

PERFECT FIT

Every SIDI shoe (except triathlon models) from 2002 onward is stamped with its size and last type (Mega, Narrow or Women’s), usually on the tongue. For example, a size 40.5 Woman’s model would be marked “40.5 W,” the W indicating Women’s model (older shoes may use an L, for Ladies). An M indicates Mega, an S (which stands for “slim”) indicates Narrow. Size marking on the sole does not properly identify size, as it only indicates the nearest whole size and does not identify the last used (a sole marked “42,” for instance, could be a straight size 42, a 42.5 women’s, 42 or 42.5 Mega or Narrow).

American vs European Sizing

Fitting Sidi Shoes Shoe fitting is best conducted at the end of the day, as feet swell throughout the day.

• Length and width of feet should be measured, while standing, and customers should be open-minded about the results. Measure both feet—most people have one foot larger than the other—and size for the larger-size foot. • Customers switching to SIDI, or from SIDIs more than 5 years old, may not wear the size they think (this is especially true for women’s shoes). • All SIDIs, with the exception of winter shoes, are built on the same last, but different models may not fit identically due to differences in patterns and materials (Wire has a narrower, lower-volume fit than Genius 6.6, for example)— so bear this in mind when switching between different SIDI models.

• In many instances, customers with wider feet may be using regular-width shoes that are too long in order to get a wide-enough shoe. Switching to a Mega model in the correct length will improve fit and performance dramatically. • Customers should be fitted wearing the same type of socks they ride in, and any orthotics they typically employ. • Have customers spend enough time in the shoes for the Lorica to warm up and conform to their feet (see Lorica, page 21). • Properly center the Soft Instep Closure System over the instep, and adjust the heel retention device, on those shoes so equipped. • It’s a good idea to try a half size up and down, for comparison. If caught between sizes, it helps to remind customers that feet typically swell while riding.

SIDI SHOE SIZING: STANDARD, MEGA AND NARROW

• Standard-size SIDIs are C to E width. • Mega lasts are EE to EEE width*, 4 mm wider across the ball of the foot—with more volume, a high instep and wider heel cup. • Narrow models are considered B to C width. *Some cyclists, who may not have exceptionally wide feet but use high-volume orthotics and/or have very high insteps, will be more comfortable in a Mega shoe.

SIDI HALF SIZES SIDI shoes employ a very conforming “pro fit,” for optimized comfort and pedaling efficiency. Full sizes step up 6 mm (.23 inches) in length, which is a big jump. SIDI’s commitment to the availability of half sizes, built on lasts 3 mm longer and with proportionate volume, is a tremendous sizing advantage that helps achieve that perfect pro fit.

HIGH INSTEPS, LOW ARCHES AND SIDI’S SOFT INSTEP CLOSURE SYSTEM SIDI’s Soft Instep Closure System provides extra sizing latitude, accommodating high insteps and low arches. The crank arm-side anchor point of SIDI’s Soft Instep Closure System should be adjusted to center the EVA pad over the instep. Pull the Soft Instep Closure System slightly away from the shoe to disengage the ratchet teeth on the anchor’s underside while repositioning the pad (you may need to firmly tug back and forth, or wiggle it side to side, while pushing firmly). Trim any excess strap extending towards the crank arm side of the shoe.

In rare cases, people with larger feet or very high insteps (usually larger than a size-50 Mega) may need the High Instep Adapter strap extender.
