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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
have a pair of sidi genius 5s I've been riding in for the last 6+ years that fit like a pair of well worn jeans. When the spring on the buckle snapped, these new ones fit easily and do the job well. No hassles with the replacement.
Easy replacement. Remove one screw and install new buckles. Same as the originals. The springs in the buckle could be a little more durable as they are usually what breaks first but at least with SIDI most parts are replaceable and not crazy expensive.
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.
