For 2013 Sidi will be introducing its new line of Wire shoes – which actually made its debut at the Tour de France on the feet of Peter Sagan of the Liquigas-Cannondale squad. The new top of the line shoes showed up at this week’s Eurobike in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
The shoes – as the name most certainly suggests – take advantage of Sidi’s Tecno 3 ratcheting cable system across the entire foot for a more comfortable and uniform fit. A full-release switch makes it easy to take the shoes off in a snap.
The shoes will be available in the Wire SP Carbon model, which features the Speedplay-only SP Carbon sole, as well Wire Vent Carbon model for use with three-bolt systems including Shimano and Look cleats. Both models feature a replaceable heel pad, since unlike the Sagan most riders won’t get a new pair handed to them when the old one wears out.
These shoes will be ready to roll next season.
