Asking a shoe to be rigid on the bike but walkable on a hike can be a bit like trying to get that proverbial chocolate kettle not to melt. If anyone were to conjure such miracle though, it would certainly be Sidi, and the fact they have is, well, almost unsurprising.
With a sole specifically designed to facilitate the attachment of toe studs and substantial tread to see you over the uneven terrain, the Eagle 5 Fit masters the off the bike hack as well as assuring the stiffness in the pedal stroke isn’t lost on the walk up the slope. With soft instep technology and a Sidi heel cup ensuring a comfortable and tailored fit for a number of foot shapes, this shoe is the high end MTB shoe that stamps its authority down at every turn. With a calliper buckle and high security fit, the connection between bike and biker doesn’t get much better, the feel of power transferal being instantaneous.
