The shoe you wanted at a price that's attainable.
We're pretty excited about the Women's Alba Carbon Cycling Shoe from Sidi. Sidi is well known to the serious cyclist and if you're looking to step up your road cycling shoe game or maybe investing in your first pair of cycling shoes, the Alba's provide quality, fit, and comfort that we've come to expect from Sidi. Typically, Sidi shoes are priced out of the range of many riders, especially those new to the sport. What has us thrilled about these shoes are that Sidi packs many of the features we find on their higher-tier shoes offering its renowned fit and performance, at a price that’s attainable to help more riders reach their cycling goals.
For the upper, Sidi uses a material known as Politex. It's a strong and durable material that allows excellent breathing and fit qualities. Sidi bonds different technical fabrics together, all having unique properties, to provide this non-stretching, long-lasting upper. The face fabric layer provides protection from the elements and makes this shoe as easy to clean as it is racking up the training miles. A reinforced heel anchors the foot in the optimal position and keeps the shape of the heel intact over the life of the shoe.
On the bottom of the shoe, Sidi uses a Millenium 4 carbon composite sole, which is a blend of carbon reinforced nylon providing near-competition level stiffness. Typically shoes at this price point, especially from Sidi, feature an all nylon sole which is heavier and not as stiff. The sole is drilled for 3-hole road cleats and has a replaceable heel tab that aids in walking while off the bike and protects the sole.
Cinching up the shoes is a breeze with the Techno Push 3 system. It also allows you to adjust the fit on the fly according to the weather conditions and your efforts. Across the top of your foot, the Soft Instep 3 strap distributes pressure evenly so you can concentrate on the scenery and not aching feet. Sidi uses two hook-and-loop straps over the lower foot for lightweight and a customized fit. This shoe oozes Sidi style and quality at a price that makes us all rejoice.
