New caliper buckle is easier to use than previous Ultra SL buckle. Multiple colors.
Note: Not compatible with Ultra SL straps but you can retro fit the strap and buckle onto older shoes. To do this, a Sidi Caliper Buckle Strap is also needed.

Replaced the buckle and strap on my mid-2000's vintage Sidi Genius's. Good for another 10 years I suspect...
I like the action of this buckle much better than the old one, and the red color adds a nice touch.
This is 2nd pair of 2 buckle replacements. Seem to easily break through use or if encounter impact. One time lever breaks off. Just cosmetic. Another time spring breaks. Another time another part breaks rendering buckle useless.
I have a pair of 10 year-old Sidi cycling shoes that I stopped wearing a few years ago due to a busted buckle. They still had a lot of life in them. I was not aware that Sidi made replacement buckles and straps. They fit and work perfectly. I decided to go with Red instead of the standard Black. They match the red in the Sidi logo.
This buckle is an exact replacement on my Genius 5 Pro Carbons, after one of my old buckle springs broke. I replaced both buckles and straps in less than 5 minutes, and feel like a master cobbler. These replacements are one reason I chose Sidi in the first place.
These replaced my original buckles on my Sidi shoes. They fit perfectly and work excellently with the new straps I installed at the same time. The adjustment ability of the buckle is better than the original and I like the release mechanism better. I believe you need to replace the straps with the updated design to work with these buckles. I think I just extended the life of these shoes another 5 years at least. Great price, great service and shipping.
Thanks to Sidi for offering small parts and thanks to BikeTiresDirect for stocking them! Once my buckle broke (really, just the spring, so the buckle worked but the tab just flopped around) I thought I'd have to look into new shoes. Luckily the buckle is available. I ordered on a Sunday night, BTD said expected delivery is Thursday, but parts actually arrived Wednesday, one day early. Good as new!
Sidi shoes are not cheap but they do last since you are able to get replacement parts fairly easily. I replace heels occasionally, but this is the first time I needed to replace my buckle. Exact match to original and easy to install. The little screws that come with it have the BLUE Loctite on them to ensure a secure installation.
I bought the Sidi Caliper Buckles to replace the broken ones on my shoes. They fit just right and they work great. I would recommend to anybody with old broken buckles. The price of buckles was also great, Bike Tire Direct had the best and cheapest price for the buckles.
My 2009 SIDI Dominator 5s are great trail shoes. My only complaint was the buckle, which easily catches weeds and clogs-up the release mechanism badly. Sometimes so bad I'm stuck inside my shoes! The original buckle was designed poorly and simply not efficient. The plastic release wings always required two fingers to adjust tension and release. With the new Caliper Buckle....everything works with a one-finger touch now.
When upgrading to the Caliper Buckle - there is really no need to buy pricey, matching straps, as the sturdier original Spider strap is fully compatible with the newer buckle...granted you perform one small modification razor-off the two tiny plastic tabs at the strap entry point. Once the tabs are off, the old strap slides straight into the new buckle, as it's the same identical width.
The spring in my old buckles was shot, so they would bounce around and click annoyingly when I pedaled. These work perfectly as a replacement. The only caveat is that it can take some fiddling to get the strap into the buckle, so not ideal if you are a triathlete.
I ride on the dirt and the road. I have several pairs of SIDI shoes which are by far, in my opinion, the best available. They are initially expensive, but, well worth it in the long run. They seam to last forever.
