The Sidi Dominator Fit Cycling Shoe for men is optimal for cross country, cyclocross, and even trail rides for the intense cyclists. Due to the stiffness and inefficiency on wet terrain, we wouldn’t recommend this for a ride where you have to get off the bike numerous times, but due to the power efficiency, support, comfort, and security, we recommend this shoe for just about any other ride.
