If you're a Speedplay loyalist, chances are that you're sick of getting the short end of the stick when it comes to compatibility. We're not sure why there's been this longstanding reluctance, but we are sure that the tides are changing. For example, with the T3. 6 Speedplay Shoes, Sidi created an entirely independent design to that of the T3 Air. No more mounting plates, and no more adapters. Instead, you finally reap the full benefits of your preferred cleat system, effectively leaving the three-hole riders in your dust. From a purely functional standpoint, we can agree that rigidity is key. That's why Sidi uses a multi-step system to ensure that your power output receives a minimal amount of dissipation through the interaction of the shoe and the pedal. To achieve this, Sidi incorporated its new, Speedplay-approved, SP Carbon Sole. Now, don't think that this is a knock off of the Eleven carbon composite sole. The SP Carbon has been designed to allow a direct-mount of Speedplay cleats. That's right, there's no need for a base plate anymore. Accordingly, the traditional stack height has been reduced by around 4mm, and the weight has been slashed by nearly 62 grams. Even better, you gain an additional 6mm of fore/aft adjustment with the new design. However, you're probably wondering to what this translates in real-world conditions. Well, it means that you can run a lower saddle height, resulting in a reduced frontal area. As a result, your center of gravity is lowered, which translates to increased handling capabilities and a stellar aerodynamic advantage. In fact, Speedplay's testing has concluded that this system will result in upwards of 33 seconds in time savings over the course of a one hour ride. For fit, Sidi understands that triathlon plays by another set of rules. Its hallmark ratcheting system and Ergo Buckles aren't relevant to your discipline, so, Sidi incorporated a two-strap closure system, mated with a 'burrito-wrap' upper. What does this mean W...
