NEW White/Black Vernice
The NEW T3 Carbon AIR features a super-perforated triathlon-specific upper for maximum drainage and ventilation, with a plush, brushed interior for sock-free comfort for fast transitions and supreme comfort on the bike leg. Like all SIDI carbon soles, the Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole® is designed for maximum stiffness and power transfer, but it’s also engineered with a small degree of controlled flex in the toe area, which relieves plantar tendon strain during the pedal stroke. Translation: The T3 gives you legs on the bike, and saves your legs for the run.
T3 CARBON AIR TECHNICAL FEATURES
• Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole®
The Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole® is engineered for high-performance, high-mileage cyclists, with stiffness for power transfer and some controlled flex in the toe area that biomechanically relieves stress in the plantar tendon. This makes it ideal for triathlon as it helps promote circulation and isn’t as punishing on the foot, leaving you more for the run.
The Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole® is extremely stiff. In SIDI’s rigidity test, in which a 50 kg (Eleven0 lb) weight is suspended from one end of the sole, it deflected only 2.4 mm—20% stiffer than the previous Carbon Composite sole’s 3 mm deflection.
The Eleven Carbon/Composite Sole® is constructed from layered 3k weave carbon fiber and injected carbon fiber in a matrix of Nylon 12, a mechanically stable material that is completely non-absorbent to water, so it won’t change rigidity from exposure to heat, humidity or from aging. It is an exceptionally light, stiff, durable sole.
An anti-slip insert in the toe and replaceable polyurethane heel pad help you navigate through transitions.
The Carbon/Composite Sole® uses a standard 3-hole drilling pattern for compatibility with the best pedal systems available, and includes a printed 10 mm lateral and fore/aft cleat alignment scale on the sole as well as the Look Memory Eyelet® for easy cleat alignment and replacement.
• Sidi Heel Cup
The SIDI Heel Cup is an external, reinforced cup that stabilizes and supports the heel, with an anatomically shaped plastic design holds its form and doesn’t break down over time, helping reduce heel slip and increase power transfer.
Technomicro is a composite microfiber material created from strands that are so fine that each one is less than one thousandth the thickness of silk. These fibers act like natural leather skin, but with the advantage of better strength, softer texture and lighter weight. Technomicro is also water-repellent, quick-drying, breathable and permeable to water vapor, making it an ideal material for shoe uppers. It is abrasion- and mildew-resistant, easier to clean than leather and resists stretching and deterioration from atmospheric agents.
