MTB DEFENDER 20
STYLE AND PRACTICALITY

TECNO-3 SYSTEM

TECNO-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 on-thefly adjustments.

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.

MTB OUTDOOR SOLE

The OUTDOOR rubber high performance sole has the correct density for variable trial conditions and has been designed to provide excellent grip and to easily expel mud and debris. 

Sidi sizing guide

*Customers switching to Sidi Shoes or from Sidi;s more than 5 years old, may not wear the same size. All Sidi's, except for winter shoes, are built on the same last, but differences in patterns and materials so keep this in mind when switching between Sidi models. Every Sidi Shoe (except triathlon models) from 2002 onwards is stamped with its size and last type (and M indicates Mega or W indicates women's), Usually on the tongue.

Standard Width is considered as a D width

Mega = EE shoe fit 4mm of extra space across the ball of the foot. If you have high-volume orthotics you may feel more comfortable in a mega shoe.

Women fits - "Women specific" shoes are a narrower and smaller version of the regular fit option. The heel and ankle areas have also been narrowed.

How do I know if its a good fit?
Some people have narrow heels, if you know this to be true we recommend getting a shoe with a heel retention device. This will allow the heel to be narrowed.

Is it too small? If you stand up with your shoes on and your toes are touching the front, your shoe is small. You don't want any toes touching the front of the shoe, this will create hot or numb toes on long rides. You want to be able to wiggle your toes a bit, but not feel like they are "sloshing around"

Tip* Try on your new Sidi Shoes with the cycling socks you normally wear

Follow the procedure below to ensure that you choose the right size.

MEASURE YOUR FOOT BY FOLLOWING THESE STEPS: :

  1. Put a sheet of paper on the floor with the short side against the wall.
  2. Put the sole of your bare foot on it with the heel pressing against the wall
  3. Mark the point in front of the tip of your longest toe on the sheet of paper.
  4. Measure the distance between the margin of the sheet of paper where you placed your heel and the point where you made the mark. Always round up the measurement to the next millimetre.

 

If the shoe doesn't fit? Don't worry, we offer a 1 free resize policy to make sure you are very comfortable on your bike
