Can someone tell me what model these Sidis are?

Hi, first time on this SF; normally I hang out in C&V. Found these Sidis at a thrift but can't find a model indication. Can anyone help me out with that? thanks

Not a model they're making anymore. Right now, their two strap mountain bike shoe is called the Tork, so it could be an older incarnation of that. They change the model names around every so often, so it could have had a different name (i.e. the Giau used to be the Bullet). It has triathlon style straps though, so there's also the possibility it's an older version of the Terra (the current Terra has one strap that opens inward and one that opens outward).

Thanks. I was thinking an earlier Tork based on the Sidi site. Or something close to it.

Wouldn't a triathlon shoe have more of a road shoe sole? This is an spd only mountain shoe sole.

Not for an offroad triathlon (think XTERRA). Two straps make getting the shoe off faster. And straps that open to the outside make them less likely to get caught in your crank. The Terra is Sidi's current mountain bike tri shoe. The T2 is their road tri shoe.

I had to google that. Unfamiliar waters.

These straps actually open to the inside. My guess is they're just basic mtb shoes similar to the Tork.

They look a lot like a pair of Sidi Rampas I used to have but I'm not 100% sure.
