Who is it good for? Sidi created the Jarin shoe mainly for gravel cycling enthusiasts. According to the brand, this shoe is specifically designed to bridge the gap between the road shoe and MTB shoe.
With this versatile construction, more types of cyclists could use the Sidi Jarin shoe:

Rigidity and durability. These Sidi shoes employ the brand’s SRS Carbon-Ground MTB sole technology. This full carbon sole is engineered to elevate the performance on a mountain bike.
The brand claims that this sole type features a reduced weight by about 100 grams per pair compared to the previous carbon sole of the Sidi Dragon SRS.
Replaceable rubber pads. The Sidi Jarin features renewable toe, central, and heel rubber inserts.
Integrated MTB plate. When using MTB pedals, it is recommended to use a reinforcement plate that is situated between the cleat and the shoe. The purpose of the plate is to prevent damage to the sole.
The Sidi Jarin’s integrated plate helps save money and eliminate the added weight of an external reinforcement plate.
Option to add toe studs. This footwear provides slots for additional toe studs, which enhances overall traction for extra slippery surfaces. Note that the studs are sold separately.
These Sidi cycling shoes feature the traditional MTB two-bolt cleat system. Some of the pedals that are suitable for this footwear are Time Speciale 12, Crank Brother Candy Clipless, and Shimano M530 SPD.
Durable, water-resistant, eco-friendly. These Sidi MTB shoes utilize the brand’s TechPro Matt Microfiber material for its upper. It is an environmentally friendly microfiber PU textile that is made in Italy.
It is characterized to be resilient, light, and water-resistant. The textile is also Oeko-Tex certified, which means that it does not contain any harmful substances.
Precise and highly adjustable retention system. Dual Tecno-3 dials govern this pair’s lockdown fit. The forefoot and midfoot areas are secured by a dial placed on top of the instep. This yields a snug fit sans pressure points.
The upper area of the foot is clinched by the combination of a Tecno-3 dial and a Soft Instep Closure 4 strap. The Soft Instep Closure 4 is an anatomically shaped strap that uses soft foam to evenly distribute pressure. It can be adjusted on both sides to eliminate the need for an additional spacer.
Reinforced toe area. The toe cap is reinforced with a non-slip rubber material to protect the front part from bumps and scratches.
Heel lockdown. The Sidi Jarin shoe features the brand’s heel cup design. It is designed to keep the foot in place and prevent deformations due to dynamic performance or prolonged pressure.
