The stylish and comfortable Sidi Drako Carbon SRS Vernice mountain bike shoe is the go-to shoe for many professional mountain bikers in the world's most prominent events. The Sidi Drako features the Soft Instep 3 system which evenly distributes the pressure over the length of the foot arch, and features adjustability on both sides allowing you to create a perfectly centred fit. The system is also replaceable, should it get damaged. The Techno-3 system is a completely replaceable closure system and consists of just a single wire, allowing you to tune the fit on the go.
Extensive explanation size in cm
The size denoted in cm tells you how long the shoe is. This size was taken on the inside of the shoe measuring from the heel to the toes. In order to determine what size you’ll need, you can measure your own foot. Do this by placing a piece of paper on the floor tucked against the wall. Stand on the paper with your heel against the wall. Draw a line at your big toe. Measure the distance between that and the wall, and add approximately 5 mm. The number of centimeters is the size in centimeters found on our website. Which specific EU/UK size you need can differ between brands. This is because each brand uses their own boot tree, causing the shoe to be bigger or smaller than the size would suggest. This is why we’ve added the size in centimeters for all of our shoes. We’ve also categorised our shoes in three different groups: narrow, medium, and wide. In order to determine the width of your foot, you can use this table. Read all about it on our blog!
MTB SRS Carbon Sole
The Sidi MTB SRS Carbon Sole is strong, durable, reduces the overall weight, and improves performance. The MTB SRS Carbon sole features replaceable heel and toe inserts, which can be connected directly to the sole. It's also fitted with an innovative replaceable plate at the interface between the pedal and cleat, preventing any damage to the shoe itself. The Ground MTB SRS inserts are both easily removed and replaced, should the need arise.
Soft Instep 3 system
Anatomically shaped, comfortable strap across the foot combined with a soft and thermoplastic upper. The strap evenly distributes the pressure across the foot arch, can be adjusted on both sides to create a perfectly centred fit, and is replaceable.
The new Techno-3 mechanism allows you to secure the shoe across the entire length, enabling it to fully form to the contours of your foot and creating a personalised fit. The reliable and replaceable retention system has been further improved with a new wire, making it easier to adjust the fit on the go.
Adjustable Heel System
Reinforced upper heel component which improves the fit of the shoe by making it follow the contours around the ankles more closely. The system also tightens the upper half of the heel cup, preventing any slippage during a heavy climb or sprint. Two independently adjustable screws allow you to loosen or tighten the fit at the heel.
Reinforced heel which keeps your foot in an optimal position, preventing the shoe from deforming over time due to stresses or prolonged pressure.
