Celebrating 50 years of Technology and Innovation
The Last Ten Years Of Development
Vertebra Cromo - Sidi uses a new, light, resistant and highly protective material developed in automobile technology to design the first ever replaceable shin deflector for racing boots.
Energy - The closure on the instep of the Energy and the MTB Action SRS models has been modified and both now feature the instep closure system. Ergonomically shaped it can be postitioned to more evenly and securely position the loads across the top of the arch and also replaces the need for a high instep adaptor.
Vertebra 2 - The patented Vertebra system has been re-designed to add the feature of an adjustable calf system, which is replaceable and full adjustbale to the size of the calf muscle.
Ergo 1 Carbon - Ego 1 Carbon is currently the only cycling shoe on the market to feature a nylon sole with two replaceable 100% pure carbon inserts positioned in the metatarsus and arch support areas where the automatic pedal is fixed. The carbon inserts cover 60% of the surface of the sole, giving more rigidity than nylon, but at the same time also providing increased flexibility and comfort in the toe area of the shoe which allows improved blood circulation when the rider pushes on the pedals.
Ceramic Scuff Pad - The first ever use of ceramic on a motorcycling boot. The ceramic in the scuff pad does not wear out and allows enhanced sliding.
Hi-Tech Carbon Fibre Sole - It is a nylon sole with two replaceable inserts positioned in the metatarsus and arch support areas. The inserts are produced in low density material and reinforced with 40% carbon. A light, very rigid and temperature-resistant sole.
SMS Sole - Suitably studyed for the Supermotard, constructed of a special blend that withstands wear and tear exceptionally well, easily replaceable and compatible with the SRS system.
Full Carbon Sole - The sole in full carbon is unique are rare in it's king because it is not completely rigid. due to the soles different thicknesses. Planned, projected and made to satisfy whoever requires a motorbike boot sole that is rigid but does not compromise foot circulation, thus guaranteeing excellent comfort and great performance. The new Sidi sole brings the foot closer to the pedal axis, has a replaceable rubber heel and an anti-slip insert on the top.
Carbon Composite sole - The carbon composite sole is made with different thickness levels to provide a slight amount of flex while retaining excellent stiffness and power transfer in the body of the shoe. The sole is made from injected carbon fibre in a matrix of nylon. The nylon used is preferable to standard nylon because it doesn't absorb water and doesn't lose rigidity in hot or humid weather as it ages. It includes an anti-slip insert at the toe and has a replaceable rubber heel pad.
Adjustable heel retention device - New technology for the heel cup system. The adjustable heel retention device on Sidi boots.
