The Sidi Genius 5 Fit Carbon is an upgrade to the popular Genius 5 and features a new upper material called Technofiber that is water repellent, breathable, abrasion resistant and won’t stretch out over time. It maintains the same ready to wear out of the box suppleness as its predecessor but is made of an even higher quality material.
The updated Millennium 4 carbon composite sole provides the perfect blend of stiffness and comfort. A Nylon base is injected with carbon to reduce weight and add rigidity. The Caliper buckle allows for micro adjustments and two High Security Velcro instep straps utilize integrated locking polymer teeth that stay where you put them to hold your foot securely.
The Genius Fit Carbon sports a reinforced heel that keeps the foot in place and prevents deformities from pressure. The Genius Fit Carbon is a beautiful upgrade on one of the most popular shoes Sidi has ever made.
SiDi Size Guide
Buying the right sized shoe can be tough when you buy online. Knowing
your size helps, but sometimes the sizes are not the same across
different brands or in different countries. Our size guides are designed
to address two aspects of the sizing issue
- SiDi shoe sizes compared across UK, EU and the US (Chart A)
- SiDi shoe sizes compared across popular shoe brands such as Adidas, North wave and Pearl Izumi (Chart B)
These SiDi Size charts are generally very helpful and our customer care
is always at hand to offer further advice. Our one and only advice is,
always buy shoes that fit comfortably out of the box. SiDi hand builds
its shoes from fixed ‘lasts’ (otherwise known as moulds). There are
basically three lasts - standards (men’s), Women’s, and the Mega
(wide-fit). The same lasts are used for the construction of SiDi’s entry
level shoe as their premium shoe.
SiDi has a great reputation for having the comfortable fit right out
the box. So any discomfort is most likely linked to choosing a shoe that
doesn’t fit… we advise you try another size.
Remember, SiDi shoe sizes are not ‘smaller’ they are simply more
‘precise’. The design is focused on providing highly competitive riders
with shoes that do not move once they are on your feet. The fit is meant
to be snug, the shoes designed to cradle your foot closely. This
doesn’t mean that your toes should be squashed in any way, but it does
mean that if you wearing a looser fitting shoe in another brand that
size may be too large for you anyway.
Wide feet and high arch
For people with wider feet and higher arches, finding the right size
can be difficult. A bigger size of shoe will mean a loose fit and a
standard shoe might feel tight around the base of your toes or the
SiDi has designed its Mega shoes
for every size, with about 0.5cms (0.2 inches) width in the areas where
a wide foot is broader. Consequently, if you wear size 44 and find it
slightly tight around the front or under the arch, then a 44 Mega might
be the solution for the perfect fit.
Millenium 4 Sole
The MILLENNIUM 4 CARBON COMPOSITE SOLE is nylon injected with carbon fiber, so it provides greater rigidity than a sole standard nylon. MILLENNIUM 4 CARBON COMPOSITE is resistant, does not absorb water and is mechanically stable, that is less susceptible to changes in stiffness resulting from prolonged use, aging and changes in temperature or humidity. Adopt an anti-slip %%insert%% replaceable heel to facilitate walking. MILLENNIUM 4 CARBON COMPOSITE is compatible with the best systems of pedals and includes a scale of lateral and longitudinal alignment printed on the sole for the positioning of the cleat, plus the ability to store the position of the cleat Look.
The anatomical and comfortable strap, placed on the top of the foot and coupled with a soft and thermo-formed material, will increase comfort and performance. It distributes pressure evenly over the arch area, adjustable from both sides to achieve the perfect center position. The system eliminates the need for the High Instep Extender. The Soft Instep Closure System is serviceable and replaceable.
The micrometric closure called “Caliper buckle” is adjustable by lifting the central buckle. In order to completely open, lift together both side buckles, or push the center button to slightly loosen one tooth at the time. The system is also adjustable during a race.
High Security Velcro
High security Velcro straps with integrated locking polymer teeth , that engage onto each other when the strap is closed. This feature makes the closure more secure and the strap becomes unmoveable.
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.
Replaceable Heel Pad
For walkability, Sidi cycling shoes include a replaceable polyurethane heel pad.
