Offering the pedigree without the price, SIDI's new Alba 2 Road Shoes are packed with advanced features that maximize performance and comfort.
Start with the vented Politex upper, which is constructed of several overlapping layers with different physical and mechanical properties. This compacted PVC material is coupled to two fabrics (knitted fabric and felt) that is film dyed for durable, long-lasting color retention.
Made in strict compliance with environmental regulations that have earned it a "green product" designation, Politex offers strong resistance to rips, lacerations, stretching and fading.
Distributing pressure evenly over the instep area is the Soft Instep 3 Closure System, a wide, anatomically curved strap combined with a soft, thermo-formed EVA pad. Adjustable from both sides, it centers the EVA pad over a high or low instep and eliminates the need for the High Instep Extender.
Delivering an optimal fit the entire length of the Alba 2 road shoe is SIDI's TECNO-3 System, which adapts the upper to the shape of the foot. The brand's famously reliable and replaceable closures are improved here 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 and Soft Step Closure Systems are serviceable and replaceable.
Down below, a composite sole injected with molded carbon fiber in a matrix of nylon creates a lighter and stiffer sole that is less susceptible to changes because of aging or extended usage.
Though the men's and women's Alba 2 Road Shoes share the same overall design, the women's version is narrower across the ball of the foot, the instep area, and in the heel cup to better mimic the tapered contour of women's feet.
For amateur and intermediate cyclists that want speed and strength without the sticker shock, SIDI's Alba 2 Road Shoe is a smart way to take their training and racing to the next level.
