Road Shoes / Peloton
MILLENIUM 5 SOLE - The redesigned MILLENNIUM 5 SOLE is constructed from injected carbon fiber in a nylon matrix. This infusion of carbon fiber in the nylon increases sole stiffness and durability, ensuring optimum performance in the face of prolonged use and temperature changes. CALIPER BUCKLE - SIDI’s TECHNO-3 PUSH 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 TECHNO-3 PUSH buckle is serviceable and replaceable. It can be adjusted while riding, thanks to an innovative button which can be pushed to lift the buckle and facilitate the adjustment. 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 system eliminates the need for the High Instep Extender. The SOFT INSTEP CLOSURE SYSTEM is 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. SIDI HEEL CUP - Reinforced cup that stabilizes and supports the heel. Anatomically shaped plastic, reduces heel slip and provides increased power transfer. Provides additional foot protection in the event of a crash. REPLACEABLE HEEL PAD - For walkability, Sidi cycling shoes include a replaceable polyurethane heel pad.
VENT CARBON SOLE - The VENT CARBON Sole features a light and replaceable heelpad in polyurethane to improve walkability and a replaceable integrated toe pad/vent cover. 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 air flow. The vent can be opened or closed for 4-season comfort. The VENT CARBON 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 plantar tendon and helps promote circulation. 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. REPLACEABLE HEEL PAD - For walkability, Sidi cycling shoes include a replaceable polyurethane heel pad. SHOT’s heel pad has a new design and it is very light. DOUBLE TECNO-3 PUSH - The DOUBLE TECNO 3 PUSH SYSTEM is inserted on a single base, this speeds up wearing and taking off shoes. The central mechanism creates a perfect tension balance between the shoe’s internal and external side. The symmetrical mechanism guarantees an excellent closure adapting on every instep. An innovative button added to the monofilament buckle, if pushed, lifts the buckle to facilitate the adjustment. REFLEX ADJUSTABLE HEEL RETENTION DEVICE - The ADJUSTABLE HEEL RETENTION DEVICE reinforces the top of the heel cup and improves the fit by closing the back of the shoe securely around the rider’s heel. The heel retention device tightens the top of the heel cup so that the heel doesn’t slide out during steep climbs or sprints. Each side of the heel can be adjusted independently, for a perfect fit. For a custom adjustment turn the screw towards the + sign to tighten the heel retention device and towards the – sign to open it. Light weight, easy to use, and replaceable. For additional security while pedaling, the new adjustable heel device is provided with reflex inserts for more visibility in dark conditions. SIDI HEEL CUP - Reinforced cup that stabilizes and supports the heel. Anatomically shaped plastic, reduces heel slip and provides increased power transfer. Provides additional foot protection in the event of a crash.
Shimano SH-R087 Road Bike Shoes: The Road Competition series combines the three most important properties of a competitive racing shoe: Stability, Rigidity and Light Weight. There are two primary considerations for a shoe at this price-point: comfort and performance. Are both considerations covered on what is essentially an entry-level shoe? Thankfully, the R087 provides plenty of bang for your buck on both fronts. These arrived for test some time ago but have become the go-to shoe for casual riding and training. Save the super-bling carbon soles for serious training or racing. Two Velcro straps and a ratchet buckle ensure a snug, secure and comfortable fit, with no sign of slippage nor discomfort during a long ride. And the stretch-resistant leather upper has maintained its shape throughout. A generous amount of mesh material and a series of small holes provide plenty of ventilation when riding in warm weather, although, like most shoes, you’ll need an oversock or overshoe to keep the wind out through winter. But that’ll help keep them clean anyway as the R087 is only available in white. As for performance, the fibreglass reinforced polyamide sole is stiff and compatible with SPD-SL and SPD cleats. Our pair weigh 700g with Shimano SPD-SL cleats fitted. One word of caution; fit is on the small side so order a size up. On the plus side, a wide fit option is available through all sizes. So all that makes for an excellent shoe ideal for, as Shimano told us from the outset, club and recreation riding.
The R241 is an elite, heat moldable shoe, second only to the R320 in Shimano's vast lineup of well-engineered shoes. Shimano perfected a method of head-molding to achieve a perfect, customized fit. The R241 provides excellent comfort in a feathery light shoe with pro-level stability. A curved, anatomical last creates a natural shoe-to-foot interface while a supple micro-fiber upper supplies a snug, supportive fit. Shimano shoes traditionally look pretty traditional. But this model has some flare with the blue accents. A lightweight hollow channel, weaved carbon fiber composite sole is ultra rigid. The upper material of the shoe regulates temperature through mesh panels and an anti-slip heel lining prevents heel lift. The fit isenhanced through an easy-to-use top buckle and ratchet system, while two off-set straps eliminate pressure points. Shimano has its own oven that is necessary to mold the shoe, and you should seek out someone trained in this process to reap the full benefits of this innovative technology, but many people find it to fit great right out of the box.
