Sidi has specialized in cycling footwear since the 1970s. That's a wealth of experience and research to pour into the Shot Carbon Road shoe. Sidi's flagship road shoe is the weapon of choice for many in the pro peloton including three-time Tour de France champion, Chris Froome. Riders who want a lightweight, aerodynamic, and stiff road shoe choose the Shot Carbon to ensure they perform at the highest level.
The Shot is the latest in the road cycling shoe offering from Sidi and is like nothing else in the range. Whilst it does contain all of the features you'd expect to find on any top end Sidi product, there are a few features which set this ahead of the others.
Firstly, the new Double Tecno-3 Push retention system sits along the centre of the shoe, rather than on the outside. Not only does this offer improved aerodynamics, but a symmetrical closure means an even better custom fit.
The Shot also has a nice little sliding vent on the Vent Carbon sole which allows the rider to tailor the airflow depending on their personal preference and riding conditions. The incredibly stiff 3k carbon sole balances performance and ergonomics perfectly by offering a slight give in the toe area for extra comfort. The heel pad and toe guard are easily replaceable if they become worn following any Froome/Mont Ventoux style running up climbs!
MICROFIBRA TECHPRO is a microfiber PU Made in Italy. It is considered a highly technological and innovative, eco-friendly leather suitable for technical and sports products which require high performance levels. TECHPRO MICROFIBER incorporates features of resistancy, stability, lightness, water-repellency and eco-friendliness.
TECHPRO MICROFIBER has a Hydro and anti-mold treatment, which eliminates the onset of molds and bacteria. TECHPRO MICROFIBER is Oeko-Tex certified, does not contain harmful substances and respects law restrictions.
The DOUBLE TECNO 3 PUSH SYSTEM is inserted on a single base, this speeds up wearing and taking off shoes. The central mechanism creates a perfect tension balance between the shoe’s internal and external side. The symmetrical mechanism guarantees an excellent closure adapting on every instep. An innovative button added to the monofilament buckle, if pushed, lifts the buckle to facilitate the adjustment.
The ADJUSTABLE HEEL RETENTION DEVICE reinforces the top of the heel cup and improves the fit by closing the back of the shoe securely around the rider’s heel. The heel retention device tightens the top of the heel cup so that the heel doesn’t slide out during steep climbs or sprints. Each side of the heel can be adjusted independently, for a perfect fit. For a custom adjustment turn the screw towards the + sign to tighten the heel retention device and towards the – sign to open it. Light weight, easy to use, and replaceable.
For additional security while pedaling, the new adjustable heel device is provided with reflex inserts for more visibility in dark conditions.
The VENT CARBON SOLE features a light and replaceable heelpad to improve walkability in polyurethane and a replaceable integrated toe pad/vent cover. The key benefits of the VENT CARBON SOLE are not only superior power transfer, because of its light weight and stiffness, but also warm weather comfort. The VENT CARBON SOLE is designed with an integrated vent and air channels for heat dissipation and air flow. The vent can be opened or closed for 4-season comfort. The VENT CARBON SOLE is handmade exclusively of carbon fiber in a weave pattern oriented at opposing angles that maximize stiffness while allowing for a small degree of controlled flex in the toe area. This carefully designed flex biomechanically relieves stress on the plantar tendon and helps promote circulation. The VENT CARBON SOLE features a standard 3-hole drilling pattern, printed 10 mm lateral and fore/aft cleat alignment scale as well as the Look Memory Eyelet® for easy cleat alignment and replacement. For triathlon, the vent also serves as a water drain, dramatically improving foot comfort after a wet transition.
