Sidi has a new top of the line mountain bike shoe. This swashbuckling little number might be the sure thing to help you ride over the rainbow. Every year there is one good cycling product that turns heads, for 2009 Sidi has that title with a colorful engine that can, will, and with brilliance. We are pleased to bring you the new extreme in bike shoe porn. Look at all that red!
While I haven’t gotten my hands on a pair yet I do suspect these to make a splash at the races this summer.
From fashion runway to trail, the new dazzling color ignites your primal need to ride from the ground up. Sidi’s tested nylon-wrapped carbon sole from heel to toe on the bottom brings the spectacle in line with high performance. It should prove to be the prized closet apparel for weekend warriors and seasoned racers alike.
Unlike the Ergo 2 road shoes, this new era of the Dragon sports a high-shine Vernice patent leather upper that is soft and pliable, but still tough enough for any granite baby-head rock. In usual Sidi style I expect these to fit like a glove, no a sock, no… a Sidi.
The closure is tasteful and traditional. A caliper buckle locks in two ways and designed to easily adjust mid-ride. They are also still using a monofilament line and ratchet system that will adjust the shoe’s upper to desired snugness.
Sizes range from 39 to 48. Prices are rumored to be around $520 at your local bike shop, or around $400 from online retailers. If Keith Richards was a mountain biker, this would be his shoe.
Feed your lust, for the color of speed.
