Drako 2 SRS Cycling Shoe

Few shoes can rival the quality, fit, and durability of Sidi's Italian-made, high-end cycling shoes. Riders enjoy season after season of reliable service due to the quality construction and the ability to replace parts when they wear out. The Drako is one of Sidi's premier mountain bike shoes, and delivers outstanding performance on all fronts. It's been proven at the World Cup level by the likes of Absalon and Schurter, ensuring those of us aspiring to ride at that level have absolute confidence in our equipment. After building up a healthy reputation of XC domination over the years, Sidi went back to the drawing board to give the Drako some updates that improve comfort and performance while shedding a bit of weight in the process. With a sleeker upper strap, a repositioned lower dial, redesigned uppers, a new heel cup, and some striking new colorways, the Drako 2 SRS Mountain Bike Shoe continues Sidi's heritage of making some of the best riding shoes on the market.

The Drako 2 sits right near the top of Sidi's lineup, just below the race-specific Tiger shoe. Both shoes share the same uber-light and uber-stiff SRS Carbon sole, the difference is that the Tiger omits the Soft Instep Closure strap at the top of the foot in favor of dual Tecno-3 dials on the tongue. This design saves some weight and makes it a bit quicker to get the shoes on or off, but the Soft Instep Closure System found on the Drako 2 allows you to adjust the side to side position of the strap for optimal comfort, while providing a bit of extra security for the top of your foot. The new closure strap is a bit sleeker and lighter, and is easily replaceable if damaged or worn out.

Comparing the Drako 2 to its predecessor, the updated version sees the lower Tecno-3 Push Dial Adjuster moved from the side of the shoe to the top of the padded tongue. The idea behind this is to provide a more secure fit and equal tension across the whole foot. Sidi also gave the Drako 2 a new heel cup that keeps your foot in an optimal position without slippage while preventing deformation of the shoe from extreme performance or prolonged pressure. The heel cup is mated to new uppers as well. The new uppers are made of the same sturdy, lightweight, weather-resistant, and eco-friendly Techpro Microfiber as the previous model, but feature a unique textured finish and new matte colors that give the Drako 2 a one-of-a-kind look.

One thing that stays the same is the MTB SRS Carbon Sole. The sole comprises a medium-modulus carbon body supplemented with SRS tread blocks and a cleat wear plate, the latter two of which are replaceable. Using a medium-modulus carbon as the base provides a slight flex along the length of the foot with no compromise to the overall rigidity of the sole, a delicate but necessary balance for top-level off-road shoes.

Sidi's heel retention device also stays the same, using an adjustable, rigid composite band that closes the shoe more securely over your heel to anchor it in place around your Achilles. No matter how much power you're pouring into the pedals, your heel will stay in place inside the shoe, even if you leave a bit of slack in the Tecno-3 lines in order to alleviate pressure across your metatarsals.

  • An elite mountain bike shoe built for performance and longevity
  • Sleeker & lighter closure strap delivers a comfortable, secure fit
  • Repositioned lower dial allows more equal tension across the foot
  • New heel cup maintains optimal foot position & resists deformation
  • Redesigned uppers and & new colors make this a sharp-looking shoe
  • Lightweight carbon sole provides very efficient power transfer
  • Heel retention device prevents heel slip during hard sprints
  • Italian-made Sidi shoes are known for quality, longevity, and superior fit

Great Shoe with Room to Improve

True to size

Use: Advanced technical trails and burley enduro terrain (Northeast) Heavy use through summer, appox 20 hrs per week. Dry hot Summer & Fall , very little rain. I upgraded to the Drako 2 after the original leather SIDI shoes I purchased tore after a few rides. The Drako is a comfortable snug shoe right out of the box, and what a great looking shoe!! The boa system is pretty slick but I need to snug it up a couple times during the ride. I do find the tightening lever popped open from time to time. The red button is likely getting triggered in overgrown singletrack. At first I was worried but its really no bigs. The synthetic material has been excellent. I'm in really narrow rocky terrain and the Drako 2 is worlds better than the soft leather model I started with. I do have 3 complaints. 1) the insole insert is a too thin. Most of my rides are in the 2 - 5 hour range. I found that after 2 hours the insole was unbearable. I've never had a bike hurt the bottom of my feet like this one. I purchased 2 different insert brands both were too think to use. I was able to find an insole from an old pair of running shoes that offered more comfort. I still think it could be better but I don't have a lot of options at this point. For the money that these shoes cost you'd think there would be a better insole. To me this was a total miss with the product engineers. 2) Carbon fiber sole makes for walking on any rocky totally sketchy. The lugs on the shoe offer virtually no assistance. I have noticed they sell replacement lugs. Again this to me was a total miss by the product designers. I guess if you never come out of your pedals you'd be okay.... if not... then its literally like walking on ice. 3) Fabric liner holds odor. They got wet on one ride the end of the Summer. I don't have odor problems with any of my shoes, ( I guess I'm just lucky like that) but these shoes smell like my kids cheap soccer cleats after a few wet practices and 3 days in the trunk. I find that the leatherette material on cleats is better than the soft liner that comes on this shoe. These shoes go on a shoe dryer after each ride... and its still a problem. Its only now getting better after spraying shoe deodorizer in there the last 3 weeks. They really should explore a higher quality odor resistant liner material. Outside of those 3 issues its an amazing shoe and I would recommend them to anyone.

The fit and finish is second to non. I wear a 45 and my normal shoe size is a 10.5 and these are spot on. If ya tend to ride everything with little walking and are looking for stiff comfortable all day shoes these are your cake. If your trails require a lots of walking maybe choose something else. Now don’t get me wrong, I walk some in these and they are fine for the occasional hike a bike. Just saying If I lived In Pisgah where walking up roots, ruts and 35% grades is a daily task. I’d choose something a little more flexible.

My first pair of off road shoes. Went with my favorite brand and it didn’t disappoint. Fit, comfort and performance just like the last 30 years of wearing the road shoes.

After a few months of use the shoes didn't disappoint. First topic is fit. I wear a size 45 in Shimano and Giro, so I ordered the Sidi's in the same size according to the sizing chart. I typically wear a size 10.5 in vans shoes, occasionally an 11 depending on who makes the shoes. So knowing this I read all the reviews I could to make decision. The size 45 fit great although first thought was a lot of toe box room, not side to side room but top to bottom. This volume of space caused no fitment issues. After a few months the fit is still feeling great. The only reason I gave these a four star and not a five is because I'm picky with details. So this may not be an issue for you. When you first break in the shoes the top plastic strap on the very first ride started to stick out straight on the inside and rub up against my carbon cranks. When I first put them on this is not the case and happens when the shoes start to take shape to your foot. After the first ride I solved this issue by first finalizing my adjustment on the strap and cutting off the excess that stuck out. This made them perfect and no more rubbing. Overall I'm very happy with these shoes and the grey color never really looks dirty. This would have to my favorite MTB shoes I've owned in quite a while.

Great Cycling Shoes!

I origanally bought a pair of Sidi cycling shoes about 2 years ago, and was concerned that they would not be worth the money I paid, even though I got them on sale (from REI). I think I paid about $200, and loved them. They are comfortable after hours of riding. Those shoes were tightened with velcro, and a rachet system. After about 2 years - and the shoes are still great - I decided to spring for these expensive shoes. I don't regret a penny of the cost. They are simply amazing. Pedaling has been raised to a joy. They are easy to put on, take off, adjust on a moving bike, and never a "hot spot". It is hard to justify the money these shoes cost, and if that is a big deal, then by all means buy a cheaper pair of Sides. You can't go wrong. If you can afford these, you'll love them.

I bought the Draco 2s in the same size as my Tigers. I wanted a Techno system that was not so prone to gumming up in the dirt. The Tigers Techno needs constant cleaning after dirty rides. They are a bit of a pain to remove. So I figured the Draco would have the same last and should fit the same as the Tiger. Nope. the Drako uppers have a much higher "volume" I had the Technos completely closed to the point that the tongues were touching and they were still too big. This was with a specialized blue insert and some shims and fat wool socks! So, if you have a skinny foot, these are not going to work. The workmanship is outstanding.

I’d say (as a long time Sidi user) these are the same as the Drako and wire -fit and volume wise.
