Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

now.... that s the million $$$ question.... I have had SIDI for many years and absolutely love them. I ride about 12-15 hrs a week. So why try Diadora? Well, they are Italian also and they look pretty cool. Plus they were on sale. I wasn't a big fan of the boa lacing system, but I figure let's try it anyway. At the beginning they feel a bit strange and the dial/ratchet seems to put some pressure on your foot. However after hours of riding there is no pain developing where there seems to be pressure. Foot ventilation is far better on Diadora and riding in So. Cal this is a big deal for me. The boa does its job, no complains there. After about a month they fit like a glove. And yes I do prefer them to SIDI. This is why: all shoes come with crappy insoles including Diadora. So once you find the insoles you like or buy some custom made ones.... well good luck fitting them in your SIDI unless you go one or half a size bigger since their toe box is so small. (and I have thin feet) - Don't think that Diadora has a wide toe box, it is just a little more comfortable. Overall I like them better + nobody has them. Competitive Cyclist rocks!!!

These pedals are easy to use and very accurate. Also the actual weight of pedals + pods and batteries is 350g, which is a little less than what is stated in this article, but I think they were including cleats as well. I've been training with HR and cadence for many years and I 've got to say that they are not half as good as power. You still need HR and cadence and you also need to spend a lot of time analysing data. A lot of people ride with power and then they never take the time to analyze batches of data. Also I ve got to warn you : they are addictive!!! Bu then again, if you re riding a bike to the level that you are considering a power meter you probably already have an addictive personality :-)
