Sidi enters the Gravel fray with shoes for the Gravelly Road Less Traveled

sidi gravel shoe 2021

Sidi is a name synonymous with cycling, whether it be for road or mountain. But, Sidi has been dragging behind the curve of at least one or two manufacturers who released gravel-specific shoes to the market for some time ago. We all know that MTB-specific shoes get the job done, but cycling wouldn’t be cycling unless there was a new product to entice you.

Drawing from the design cues of their MTB lineup, Sidi takes their MTB competition sole, the base for the Sidi Gravel shoe.

Features include:

  • “MTB competition sole for efficient pedaling and excellent traction off the bike and is toe spike compatible for muddy conditions.”
  • “Single Tecno 3 Precision dial ratchet for easy adjustment and a secure custom fit.”
  • “External, reinforced heel cup for superior fit, power transfer, and reduction of heel slip.”
  • “Legendary Sidi quality and construction.”
  • “Clean design and color options.”
  • “Politex Suede Upper with protective polyurethane padding at the ankle.”
  • “Abrasion-resistant toe cap.”

    The new black “rubbery” cleats wear out much quicker than the old harder red and gray ones. I wore out a pair in one month, and NO hike-a-Bike contribution. The Drako cleats will fit the shoes…

  2. If I were to be honest, I need a shoe that is good for hiking, pushing bikes up rocky bits, and climbing over fallen trees.

        They also have the Jardin which I thought was a new gravel shoe priced about $100 more than this one.

    Been riding Sidi Drako 2’s for over a year now. Looks like the sole of this shoe has rubber traction material in the arch area. This would make unclipped riding much easier. The Drako 2 and Jarin both have smooth carbon in the arch area. Very slippery.
