Sidi Bike shoes: An useful addition to your cycling outfit

Sidi bike shoes like the Carbon Vernice Road or the Sidi Genius can be a great addition to your whole cycling outfit! You don't have to be a professionel to take full advantage of these cycling shoes. Even casual bikers can benefit greatly from bike shoes. Sure, you could ride your bikes in simple trainers. But cycling shoes will be a lot more comfortable and efficient, allowing you to ride longer distances and achieve greater speeds with ease.

What are bike shoes anyway?

When it comes to dedicated clothing, bikers are really spoilt for choice. You can choose between helmets, a range of accessories as well as aerodynamic shirts and pants. Cycling shoes on the other hand are designed with one goal in mind: make your cycling experience as comfortable as possible for you. These shoes are not only really light, at the same time they are stiff and make the pedalling as easy as it can be. You can choose between high-top and low-top models, each designed for various climatic conditions. Most models come with the regular design that closes off below the ankle. However, you can also choose high-top models that embrace the ankle and give you additional stability. High-top cycling shoes are perfect for cold weather and wintery conditions and keep you warm even in frosty weather.

There is one commonality shared by bike shoes, the sole is always as thin as it can be. This gives you a lot of power when you are pedalling and translates all of your energy into a forward motion. At the same time the sole is very thin to improve handling of your bike and keep your overall weight down. Road shoes are made out of all kinds of exotic materials, carbon fibre being the most common of them. However the most useful feature of bike shoes are the holes in the soles. These holes are compatible with clipless pedal cleats, allowing you to easily attach the shoes to the pedals. This has several advantages. By attaching yourself to the pedal your foot is held in an optimal ergonomic position. Additionally, you can transfer more power to the pedal, drive at higher speeds and save energy. Most common are models with 3 holes in the sole.

Clipless pedals were first used in the skiing world and made it over to the world of bicycles around in the 1980s. The principle is very simple. All you have to do is attach your shoe to the pedal with a number of bolts and push down. At the end of your cycling tour you simply have to twist your foot in order to disengage. For many bikers the idea of being attached to your bicycle can be a bit scary at first. But don't worry! It's very easy and fast to unclip your foot from the pedal if you want to. All this means that these pedals don't have traditional straps or toeclips.
