The Sidi Trace 2 MTB shoe is highly durable and suitable for a variety of disciplines including MTB, gravel and cyclocross. Showing trickledown features from across Sidi’s cycling shoe line up, the Trace 2 offers premium performance at an entry-level price point. The Trace 2 is a high-performance shoe in its own right, ideal for those new to clipless riding or those simply wanting to save their best for less muddy days.
The upper of the Trace 2 is made from Politex, a compacted PVC compound that is paired with a knitted fabric and felt. This combination of materials and construction means Politex is highly resistant to ripping, tearing and stretching, making the Trace 2 a long-lasting partner for long days in the saddle in British conditions. The Politex upper is made of few panels to reduce seams and, along with the narrow Velcro straps, help create the Trace 2’s sleek appearance, which looks every bit as professional as the many Sidi shoes worn in pro MTB races.
The Trace 2 features the same RS17 sole as Sidi’s other MTB shoes. The sole is made of nylon with inserts providing extra grip in muddy conditions, and balances stiffness with enough flex for walking. The tread pattern has also been designed to help disperse mud, meaning your grip won’t be compromised during prolonged use and the rubberised Sidi logo in the middle of the sole provides extra grip. The heel and rubber toe are replaceable, and the toe can fit Sidi’s MTB toe studs for especially demanding conditions.
Comfort and fit are central to the Trace 2’s design. The Tecno-3 System dial allows you to easily adjust the fit of the shoe, even on the move. The dial is paired with the Soft Instep Closure system – a wide, anatomically shaped EVA thermo-formed pad that disperses pressure evenly across the top of the foot – and gives that iconic Sidi look. The position of the Soft Instep closure system is also adjustable, so you can fine tune the fit in accordance with the shape of your foot.
Sidi’s reinforced heel cup ensures even greater comfort and support, whilst improving power transfer and providing extra protection.
