Construction of the Sidi Eagle 10

Who is it good for? The Sidi Eagle 10 is a bike shoe marketed for off-road cyclists. It is recommended for individuals who value easy fine-tuning, durability, and efficiency on the bike.

What is it good for? This footwear is engineered specifically for off-road riding. Its durable and rip-resistant upper and grippy soles are created to withstand mountain bike adventures.


Power transfer. The Sidi Eagle 10 MTB shoe employs the brand’s MTB SR17 Sole. It is mostly made up of Nylon with Polyurethane (PU) inserts. This sole type yields stiffness for energy transfer and flexion for off-bike walking.

Traction. The overall shape of the shoe’s tread has been developed to provide excellent grip, mud dispersion, and stability. 

Replaceable toe bumper. The toe pad is more subject to wear, especially when walking. This footwear employs a replaceable toe pad to get more extended wear out of it.

Option to add toe studs. Two additional slots for toe studs are available to give the rider the option to add them for an even better grip. Note that the toe studs are sold separately.

Cleat System

This Sidi shoe employs the two-bolt cleat system, which allows you to use the shoe with SPD pedals. Some of the pedals you can pair with this shoe are Shimano M647 Clipless SPD, Nukeproof Horizon CS CrMo Trail, and DMR V-Twin Clipless.


Durable, water-repellent, and eco-friendly. The Sidi Eagle 10’s upper is crafted from a sturdy Politex material. This textile is known for resiliency, lightness, and repelling water. 

It is manufactured using a technique with a low environmental impact. This process is called Water-Tech treatment, which uses water-based products instead of chemical-based ones, creating fewer toxic emissions.

Adjustable fit while on the saddle. This pair employs the brand’s Techno-3 system, which is comprised of two BOA-like dials. One dial works in combination with Sidi wires to provide a snug fit in the forefoot and midfoot areas.

Another dial works in unison with the Soft Instep Closure System. This combination is responsible for the top-most part of the foot. The Soft Instep Closure is a wide strap that’s anatomically curved that features EVA pads to evenly distribute pressure over the instep.

The Soft Instep Closure is adjustable from both sides to easily position the pad over the wearer’s instep. It eliminates the requirement of an extender.

This pair’s overall retention system allows precise adjustment on the fly.

Lockdown fit. The Sidi Eagle 10 includes the brand’s Heel Cup technology. This further enhances fit via a reinforced heel design that keeps the foot in the most optimal position while pedaling. It also prevents shoe deformation due to dynamic pedaling or prolonged pressure


This Sidi MTB shoe utilizes a lightly padded footbed crafted from ergonomically shaped foam with memory effect. This enhances the cushioning and overall comfort of the shoe.

Nice to know

This pair’s serviceable parts are its Tecno-3 system, the Soft Instep Closure, and toe rubber pads in the sole.
