SIDI GENIUS 6.6 CARBON CYCLING SHOE - ROAD - GREEN
The Genius 6.6 has 3 closure mechanisms for a completely secure, comfortable
and adjustable fit no matter how hard you ride.
Sidi Caliper Buckle With Soft instep Closure: The Sidi calliper buckle offers fast and convenient
micrometric closure that can be adjusted on the fly, even whilst riding. The
soft instep closure system can be adjusted to accommodate a high or a low
instep without the use of an extender kit. It has a wide, padded strap that
distributes pressure evenly over the arch area and is adjustable from both
sides for perfect alignment. The calliper buckle and strap are serviceable and
available as spares.
2 High Security Velcro Straps: High security Velcro has integrated strips of
locking polymer teeth that engage with each other when the strap is closed for
a totally secure fit and a longer lifespan.
Heel Retention Device: The adjustable heel retention device has been
redesigned for 2012. It reinforces the top of the heel cup and improves fit by
closing the back of the shoe more securely around the ankle so that it doesn't
slip during steep climbs or sprints. It can be adjusted with two small screws
that tighten independently. The heel retention device is great for high milage
rides when numbess becomes a problem as it allows you to loosen the front
closures for better circulation and feeling.
Sidi developed and
refined the carbon lite sole to meet the needs of pro cyclists riding high
mileages at high intensities. The innovative carbon lay-up uses composite
materials configured to maximise resistance to stress and minimize weight and
The Carbon Lite
Sole is constructed to provide a small amount of flex in the toe while
retaining excellent stiffness throughout the body of the shoe, this ensures
optimum rigidity and power transfer without compromising blood circulation for
long term comfort and performance.
the Carbon Lite Sole includes an anti-slip insert at the toe and a replaceable
heel pad. A 10mm horizontal and vertical cleat alignment scale is moulded into
the sole as well as a Look Memory Eyelet for accurate cleat replacement every

was at a crossroads. He was a very good junior racer, fast enough to be offered
a contract, and a chance to make it in the pro peloton. But he was also a
trained shoemaker, with the opportunity to pursue this time-honored craft in
his native Italy,
a land where artisans are revered. He opted for the latter course, and cycling
has never been the same.
struck out on his own in 1960, establishing a workshop named by the first two
letters of his last and first names: SiDi. The initial focus was on
mountaineering boots and ski boots (and in fact Mr. Dino invented the very
first monofilament line closure for shoes in 1966, employing them on ski boots
for Italian Olympic Champion Marielle Vautcel). But it was in 1973 that he made
his indelible mark on the cycling landscape.
It’s 1973, and
cycling shoes are still leather-and-wood soled laceups with nail-on cleats.
Until SIDI debuts the first shoes to feature adjustable cleat position, the
first real innovation in cycling footwear in more than 60 years. Six years
later, Mr. Dino introduces the first nylon-soled cycling shoes, effectively
ushering in the modern era in cycling footwear.
with a string of firsts—the first Velcro strap closure in 1983, the first
dedicated MTB shoe in 1985, the first patent for a ratcheted string closure on
a cycling shoe in 1988, and the first ratcheting buckle closure on a cycling
shoe in 1989—a streak that continues to this day, in which SIDI is first with a
performance feature that’s become so ubiquitous it’s taken for granted today.
SIDI puts rider
