Talk about world-beating performance—Nino Schurter pedaled his way to 2010’s World Cup championship in his Dragon 2 Carbon SRS® shoes, becoming the youngestever rider to win both the World Cup and World Championships. Dragon 3 builds on the legend, with superior pedaling performance, superb off-the-bike traction and perfect fit for the ultimate rider/bike connection that makes you one with the trail.
In 1999, SIDI revolutionized mountain bike shoe design with the Sole Replacement System® (SRS®), allowing mountain bikers to replace the most wear-heavy part of the shoe—the tread. The core of the Dragon Carbon SRS Sole ® is a pure carbon sole insert extending from the heel to the toe that, along with the replaceable tread blocks, bolts to a narrow, durable nylon sole “frame.” This unique design provides a slight amount of flex in the toe for a smoother, more natural running gait without compromising the shoe’s excellent stiffness and power transfer while pedaling. As it does in the Carbon Lite® and other SIDI soles, this small amount of engineered flex also improves pedaling comfort and biomechanical efficiency by relieving plantar tendon strain. The sole is engineered for the highperformance, high-mileage cyclist who requires a sole that is rigid but does not compromise the foot’s blood circulation, guaranteeing excellent comfort and great power transfer. Both the carbon sole inserts and the Dragon SRS Sole® tread are easily removable and replaceable. A polyurethane anti-slip insert is positioned in the metatarsus area. The Dragon SRS Sole® is toe spike compatible.
