Reliable protection from winter elements

The Italian-made Sidi Hydro Gore is a well-made winter boot that provides a perfect fit, which the Sidi brand is quite known for.

Sidi Cape Reliable protection

The Sidi Frost Gore is a lightweight, ankle-height mountain bike shoe. It provides cyclists with reliable protection from the winter elements.

Frost Gore offers stability and waterproofing 

With a lightweight Microfibra Microtech upper, this waterproof shoe offers stability, comfort, and elemental resistance, without adding unnecessary weight or sacrificing performance.

Sidi uses the Gore's iconic Gore-Tex membrane to keep the water out while allowing the flow of the steamy water vapor out.

Inefficiency to keep the feet dry

Although this shoe is nicely made and comfortable, this may not be the Italian company's finest moment as it fails to keep the feet dry.

It also requires waterproof pants. A few commenters gripe that water trickling down their legs enters the shoe. This could be remedied by wearing long waterproof cycling pants.

Takes time to get used to the high-top design

A couple of cyclists who are used to low-cut bike shoes found that it took a few rides for them to get used to the Frost Gore's high-top design.

But the Techno-3 closure of the shoe is pretty consistent when it comes to its reliability and adjustability. The fully replaceable cable-dial construction permits for on-the-fly adjustments to get a better-personalized fit.

But like most winter bike shoes, water could come in from the top, and cold could creep in when the temperature reaches a certain low. To prevent these, wearing a toe cover and waterproof cycling pants are recommended.

Sidi Frost Gore is great for long rides

The Frost Gore is ideal for long rides, say a number of wearers. With the shoe's closure mechanism, it is easier for cyclists to do an on-the-go fine-tuning, which a few users appreciate.
