The Wire Carbon Vernice Women's Cycling Shoes from Sidi deliver ultimate performance without compromising comfort, and is versatile for both road and MTB cleats. Sidi have built the women's Carbon Vernice on an anatomically correct women's-specific last. The shoes feature a tapered last that mimics a women's more tapered foot shape, narrower ball of the foot, plus less volume on the instep area and a narrower heel cup.
Soft Instep 3 System: This 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 centre 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.
Tecno - 3 System: Sidi’s Tecno -3 System dials in fit along the entire length of the shoe, adapting the upper to the shape of the foot for a customised 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-the-fly adjustments. Like most Sidi small parts, the Tecno - 3 Buckle is serviceable and replaceable.
Adjustable Heel Retention Device: 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. Lightweight, easy to use, and replaceable.
Sidi Heel Cup: The reinforced heel keeps the foot in a optimal position and avoids the shoe being deformed by extreme performance or prolonged pressure. For walkability, Sidi cycling shoes include a replaceable polyurethane heel pad.
Vent Carbon Sole: For 2013 SIDI engineers have shaved additional weight off the Vent Carbon Sole, which now features an ultra-light heelpad 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 lightweight 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 leads to two longitudinal airflow channels molded into the carbon sole that direct air to perforations under the forefoot area (SIDI’s Comfort-Fit insoles have matching perforations for unimpeded airflow). 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. To improve walkability, the Vent Carbon Sole is designed with replaceable polyurethane heel and toe pads. For triathlon, the vent also serves as a water drain, dramatically improving foot comfort after a wet transition.
Please Note: All buckles and mechanisms are replaceable.
