The Sidi Ergo 3 Vent Carbon shoe is former Sidi's Flagship road shoe. Sidi uses the same Italian carbon specialist as Ferrari and Ducati to produce the Vent Carbon sole that is both stiffer and 38 grams lighter than its predesesor. T700 carbon is exclusively used where many of Sidi's competitors skimp with T300 carbon. Sidi engineers a small degree of toe flex to relieve stress on the plantar tendon.
Of course the Vent sole features a front vent with a sliding cover that leads to two channels which direct air underneath the footbed. Sidi's new dual density insoles feature perforations for air movement. Exit vents just behind the cleat and on the heel allow the air to escape. The sole has a 3-hole drilling pattern with a printed 10mm cleat adjustment scale and has a Look memory eyelet for Look cleats with the Memory system.
An updated breathable, supple, durable Lorica Microfiber Upper keeps feet comfortable with cooling mesh inserts. The Vernice (Ver-nee-chay) gloss white finish gives the Ergo 3 Vent Carbon a unique look befitting its top-end status. The Sidi Ergo 3 Carbon road shoe is consistently the top choice for professionals and those seeking the best road shoe possible. We get a lot of professional cyclists at our location in Boulder, Colorado and this is the shoe the pros really use (and salivate over) when riding outside their sponsorship obligations.
The front strap employs high security Velcro so it won't slip. A Techno II buckle and caliper buckle at the top allow perfect closing pressure that can be easily changed on the fly. The soft instep closure system and padded tongue eliminate pressure points and circulation issues. We have found Sidi shoes tend to fit a variety of foot shapes with more comfort than any other brand.
