This year's Tour de France winner is crazy about these shoes and had the privilege of being the first to try them out. The Sidi Shot shoes share many properties which make the Wire such a great shoe. The base of the Sidi Shot is the Vent Carbon sole. This sole is hand-made and uses solely carbon fibre in which different threads have been woven in an interlaced pattern. For optimal ventilation and cooling, internal air flow channels have been integrated into the sole.
Unique to the Sidi Shot is the placement of the Techno-3 retention system; it's located on top of the shoe. This has both practical and aerodynamic advantages; the shoes are easier to adjust on the go. Techno-3 is a reliable and completely replaceable retention system, and has now been further improved with a new wire which allows you to adjust the fit even quicker and easier.
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!
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.
Vent Carbon Sole
Handmade carbon sole with integrated ventilation channels to improve your comfort in warm conditions. The air flows in through 2 ventilation channels via an opening just behind the toe box. When used in a triathlon, the channels act as water drains, radically enhancing your comfort on the bike. The special weave used with the carbon fibre sole ensures optimal rigidity with limited flex at the toes. This flex reduces stress on your ligaments and improves blood flow.
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.
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.
