There's little doubt that Sidi is the world's best-selling cycling shoe, and the Sidi Genius Fit is destined to be one of its most popular models. Similar to the Genius 5 Pro, the Fit uses the same design, only with both technology and material upgrades. Sidi constructed the uppers of the Genius Fit shoes from its Technomicro material. Essentially, this is a composite microfiber that's created from strands that are so fine that each one is less than one-thousandth the thickness of silk. These fibers act like a natural leather skin, only with the advantage of increased strength, soft texture, and light weight. Water-repellent, quick-drying, breathable, and permeable to water vapor, it's obviously ideal for shoe uppers. It's abrasion- and mildew-resistant, as well, making it far easier to clean than leather. Additionally, this material is resistant to stretching and deterioration from atmospheric agents. And to keep your feet from getting too warm, mesh inserts were added throughout the uppers. At the outsole, we find that Sidi went with its Millennium 4 Carbon Composite for the construction. If you're familiar with Sidi, you're certainly familiar with the Millennium 3 composite, and well, this replaces that iteration for pretty obvious reason. Designed with a nylon matrix that's been injected with strands of carbon fiber it's 37% stiffer than nylon alone. The material is non water-absorbent, and it's resistant to changes in stiffness from prolonged use, age, or temperature. It features an anti-slip toe and a replaceable polyurethane heel pad. Sidi's hallmark Caliper Buckle has been incorporated for retention. This two-way ratchet allows for micro-adjusts of the strap pressure in order to ensure that the fit of your upper won't be too loose or too tight. It's mated to a Soft Arch Compression Strap that evenly spreads the upward stroke pedaling forces across the top of your foot. The buckle provides four-clicks per uptake along with half-click releases. Essential...
