Sidi Genius 10 Mega Road Shoes Black/Grey/Black 2022
The Sidi Genius 10 Mega Road Shoe as its name suggests is the Mega version of Sidi's Genius 10 Road Shoe designed to offer a comfortable fit to riders with wider than average feet. It is crafted around an EE or EEE width last so that the finished shoe is 4mm wider across the ball of the foot. The Mega last furthermore gives the shoe a greater volume higher instep and wider heel cup than the classic Genius 10.
Featuring a new sole and closure system the Genius 10 sees an almost total redesign from earlier Genius models while retaining the classic Sidi styling and quality that's made the shoe such a favourite over the years.
The Carbon Composite 20 sole is made from nylon injected with carbon fibre which results in a light stiff sole designed to maintain its stiffness and technical features over time. Correct cleat alignment is essential to ensuring comfort and optimum power transfer whilst out riding. The Carbon Composite 20 sole is designed with this in mind with a graduated central section around the three-bolt fitting facilitating easy and precise cleat installation.
Made from Microfibre Microtech the Genius 10's upper is light but also gives plenty of coverage for cooler days or poor conditions. The material is a good choice for eco-friendly riders. Microfibre Microtech is made with water-based products as opposed to solvent-based products meaning less noxious emissions are released into the atmosphere reducing the environmental impact of production. For improved walkability and added longevity the sole includes a replaceable heel pad.
Sidi's iconic Soft Instep strap is present and correct giving an inimitable connection with the pro peloton. This strap has an adjustable ratchet and is paired with the Tecno-3 dial so that you can adjust the closure and fit of the Genius 10 on both sides to support your instep. A second Tecno-3 dial allows for precise adjustment on the lower section of the shoe and furthers the shoe's clean and unfussy look.
Like many of Sidi's parts both the Tecno-3 dials and Soft Instep strap are replaceable which means the Genius 10 will be a key part of your cycling wardrobe for many seasons to come.
It also features Sidi's reinforced heel cup which helps to stabilise the heel prevent heel slip and ultimately increase power transfer. It is about safety too providing extra foot protection in case you take a tumble off your steed.
