Genius 6.6 Carbon Lite
Genius 6.6 Carbon Lite
A miracle of Italian style and design. SIDI’s Genius 6.6 Carbon Lite shoe is a delight on all fronts: gorgeous, able to transfer power extremely efficiently with its carbon fiber sole, and probably lighter than your socks! There’s no other shoe that delivers the look, comfort, or performance of this high end product. Cycling gear that is worthy of lining up next to other fine Italian shoes in your closet: you deserve it.

Michelle says: Amongst all the shoes I have ever ridden, SIDI Genius 6.6 Carbon Lite shoes are hands down my favorite! And I say that with confidence after a combined 20 years of racing, touring, and commuting in a lot of other cycling shoes.
The leather uppers on the SIDI Genius 6.6 are incredibly supple and mold around my feet like a pair of leather house slippers. The women-specific designed Heel Security System is perfect for my heel height and volume. Adding to the heel feature is the Caliper Buckle. This buckle has micro adjustments that adjust for volume over the top of myfoot, making the heel and buckle systems a great combo for exceptional fit.
The stand out feature of this shoe is the Carbon Lite Sole which is the stiffest sole I have ridden to date. My background in cycling means I desire the stiffest sole for better power transfer to the pedals and overall efficiency, and this shoe is all that.
