Sidi answers fans' prayers with the stunning Limited edition Team Katusha Wire Carbon
Sidi Sport has launched its latest limited edition cycling shoe, the Wire Carbon Katusha Team, which will be available to order from your local Sidi dealer in late May.
Fans have been clamouring for the design to be made available to the public since the beautiful team-colour shoes were unveiled last December. Now Sidi has responded with this special edition of the Tour de France winning Wire Carbon, which offers everyday riders the chance to own the Italian brand's pro-level road shoes complete with the Katusha team colours.
The shoes are faithful reproductions of the cycling slippers worn by Purito Rodriguez, Alexander Kristoff, Ilnur Zakarin and the rest of WorldTour squad. Katusha riders have already scored 10 successes this season with their Sidi shoes, taking victory in various races across Europe and the Middle East. The team will be next taking their Sidis to the Grand Tours, beginning with the Giro d'Italia, which starts in Holland on 6 May.
This limited edition Katusha model follows the blue Chris Froome version launched earlier this year and like all Sidi's special edition shoes, they come with special packaging. In this case, the box has been redesigned in the Katusha colours and new graphics. The shoes also come with a custom shoe bag in team colours that features the names of Katusha's full 2016 rider line up. Fans can also look forward to a pair of Katusha Team socks and a picture of the team.
The top-end shoe in Sidi's range, the Wire Carbon features a full carbon sole and highly adjustable Tecno-3 dial closures with the iconic Instep strap as well as Sidi's innovative reinforced, adjustable heel cup. As well as being incredibly stiff, the Vent carbon sole offers adjustable airflow depending on race temperatures.
