SIDI sought to develop the ideal shoe for those riders looking to get the iconic SIDI look and feel but at a more accessible price. Whether it's intense pre-season training, long-distance touring, or even high-octane competition, the Alba's new Millennium 4 carbon composite sole and Politex upper provide the perfect balance of stiffness, comfort, and durability. Bringing their Tecno-3 retention system along for the ride, the Alba packs a feature-packed punch.
Featuring Politex material through the upper, the shoe is constructed of several overlapping layers with different physical-mechanical properties. The compacted PVC is then coupled to two fabrics (knitted fabric + felt) that is then film dyed for long-lasting color retention. Politex offers strong resistance to ripping, laceration, stretching and fading. With their Tecno-3 retention system, the micro-adjustable system dials in fit along the entire length of the shoe, adapting the upper to the shape of the foot for a customized fit. SIDI’s famously reliable and replaceable closures are improved by an all new proprietary SIDI Wire material that is completely non-binding for intuitive and effortless on-the-fly adjustments. Like most SIDI small parts, the Tecno-3 buckle is serviceable and replaceable.
Down below, SIDI's new carbon-injected nylon Millennium 4 carbon composite sole provides more rigidity than a standard nylon sole. The Millennium 4 is also more durable, and features an anti-slip toe insert and replaceable polyurethane heel pad, improving walkability and overall longevity.
The SIDI Alba Road Shoes are compatible with 3-bolt road cleats and pedals, and utilize Look Memory Eyelets for easy cleat alignment and replacement.
