I'm trying to decide on the following shoes. Unfortunately stores generally do not carry most of these and I cannot try them on before purchase. I want to weigh stiffness, weight, and lift so that I have the best shoe possible.
Cost is not an issue.
Giro Prolight SLX
Sidi Carbon Wire
Giro is the lightest but all straps.
Mavic comes in second but i've never seen the fasteners in action. Looks susceptible to lift when pulling on the pedals.
Sidi Carbon Wire feels great and is stiff but is the heaviest.
