From SIDI Engergy2 to DMT's(6 posts)

From SIDI Engergy2 to DMT'sEdLemond
Nov 10, 2003 9:55 AM
Anyone here make the transition from SIDI's to DMT's? My old SIDI's (size 41) were worn and replaced with DMT RSX (same size 41). The toe box is very comfy compared to the SIDI's, but I have slight heel movement. Also, the DMT straps were too long and I ran out of "clicks" on the buckle, so I took the strap off my SIDI and am using that to secure in correctly. I think my feet do not have the volume to fill the DMT's correctly.

I really like the DMT's. I have had no hot spots and my feet have not fallen "asleep" - compared to the SIDI. Should I have gone down a size (40) or do they make a half size (40.5)?

Thanks in advance...

The DMT's that I have on order (ultimax), have two settings for the ratchet. did you set yours to the lowest to make up for that volume your foot lacks?

Hey Maurizo - How do you change the ratchet settings?
Thanks in advance

The shoe has an insert (another bolt if you will) where the screw that affixes the ratchet can be unscrewed and placed on the other insert hole. In this case, the receptacle further down the shoe. Pretty simple. I cannot beleive they are the only shoe company doing such a thing.
Imagine how many more feet this simple feature will apply to....

According to their website, the RsX shoe is not available in half-sizes below 41.5.

If you think you're in between sizes, you could try putting in a thicker aftermarket insole to take up some of the volume.

I made the switch and felt the DMT's were more generous in their sizing. I think they are a better shoe (no hot spots, etc) and a bit stiffer, but the heel pad on the bottom of the shoe is not replaceable, so be careful about walking around much in them.
