Cyclists have been relying on the three hook and loop strap design for a long time now, as it provides a few advantages over wire systems. The first is that cable failure is out of the equation, and once you set the straps, they don't creep looser as you ride. The second is customizable tension across your foot. That's what makes the Sidi Tarus such a classic design, and the new LTD Euro Edition means that it gets an added dose of Italian style. Starting with the soles, these were made to be both stiff and durable. Using the newest iteration of the Millennium series, the Millennium 4 sole differs from its predecessors in its carbon infused construction. Whereas prior generations relied on a reinforced nylon matrix, the Millennium 4 infuses this matrix with carbon fiber. This process dramatically improves the overall stiffness of the shoe, while adding an enhanced level of durability. For a secure fit, Sidi used a three strap, hook and loop closure system. This allows full adjustability that will stand the test of time. Sidi also added its signature heel cup to keep the foot in the perfect position on hard up strokes and while climbing out of the saddle. For comfort, the body of the shoe has been made from a synthetic leather. It also creates a secure attachment for one of the most important parts of the Tarus its ventilation mesh. Much of the shoe body receives this nylon mesh in order to keep the internal temperature of the Tarus consistently low and comfortable. The Sidi Tarus LTD Euro Edition Men's Shoes are available in whole and half sizes 40. 0 to 47. 0 and in the colors Whitered and White. The shoes are compatible with three hole cycling cleats. And for easy adjustment, the sole features a molded, 10mm horizontal and vertical cleat alignment scale. This scale also offers the Look Memory Eyelet.
