Sidi Alba 2 - Mens
For many cyclists, owning their first pair of Sidi shoes is a rite of passage from an enthusiast to a serious cyclist. The fit, comfort, and quality of Sidi shoes are something that any new cyclist or seasoned master can appreciate, and Sidi aims to get more cyclist's feet in Sidi shoes and enjoy its emblematic styling and performance at a price that's rare in a pair of shoes from Sidi. The men's Alba Carbon Cycling Shoe is perfect if you're in the market for your first pair of road cycling shoes or anyone looking for some value-packed shoes for putting in long-distance training, and even toeing the line at your first race.
The upper consist of a material known as Politex and it fits your feet like only a high-end pair of shoes from an Italian footwear firm can. Its construction features several overlapping layers with different properties that are compacted into two fabrics, a knitted fabric and felt, that's then dyed for long-lasting color retention. In addition to fitting well and providing excellent breathability, Politex is very durable and resists ripping, tearing, stretching and fading. Two hook-and-loop straps near the front of the foot combined with Sidi's Tecno-3 retention system makes it easy to tighten up the kicks just before the county line sprint. The Tecno-3 system is very similar to the dials featured on other high-end shoes with micro-adjustable widgets adapting the upper to the shape of the foot for a customized fit. The wire material is non-binding for quick and effortless adjustments on the fly. Sidi is well known for serviceability and the buckles are replaceable if needed.
On the bottom of the shoe, Sidi uses its Millennium 4 carbon composite sole which is lightweight, much appreciated on the climbs, and directs all of the pedaling energy into the pedals, perfect for the sprints. The sole is much stiffer than full nylon ones typically featured on shoes at this price point. An anti-slip toe insert and replaceable polyurethane heel pad, improve walkability and add overall durability. The Sidi Alba road shoes are compatible with all 3-hole road cleats and pedals and utilize Look's Memory Eyelets for easy cleat alignment and replacement down the road.

MILLENIUM 4 CARBON SOLE
The MILLENNIUM 4 CARBON COMPOSITE Sole features injected carbon fiber in a matrix of Nylon, providing more rigidity than a standard nylon sole. The MILLENNIUM 4 CARBON COMPOSITE Sole is also more durable, completely non waterabsorbent
and mechanically stable, meaning it’s less susceptible to changes in stiffness resulting from aging, prolonged usage, and changes in temperature or humidity. An anti-slip toe insert and replaceable polyurethane heel pad are incorporated
into the MILLENNIUM 4 CARBON COMPOSITE Sole, for walkability. The MILLENNIUM 4 CARBON COMPOSITE Sole uses a standard 3-hole drilling pattern for compatibility with the best pedal systems available, and includes a printed 10 mm lateral
and fore/aft cleat alignment scale on the sole as well as the Look Memory Eyelet for easy cleat alignment and replacement.
SIDI’s TECHNO-3 SYSTEM 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 onthe-
fly adjustments. Like most SIDI small parts, the TECNO-3 SYSTEM is
serviceable and replaceable.
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.
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.
