Looks like there are at least 5 different models;
Rampa 3-$89.99
Catapult 2-$129.99
Bullet 2-$149.99
Dominator 5 mesh-$169.99
Dominator 5 lorica-$206.99

What is the best bang for the buck and how does the sizing run ?
I'll be using these with Candy SL primarily on a road bike.
Just switched over to clipless last week and having some numbness with Adidas Durango. Thanks in advance.

dominator 5 lorica's. i'd skip the mesh as your feet get really dusty and dirty. if you have a higher volume foot the triple velcro bullet would probably be fine, but i like the ratchet mechanism on the dominators to crank down on my skinny feet. really well made durable clogs.

I give a second for the lorica Dominators. The wratchet mechanism allows me to easily lean over and adjust my shoe when the shoe feels loose and needs to be tightened or loosened when my feet swell in the heat. They are really comfortable.

i have candy sl's and the lorica dominator 5's (had to use the shims for the cleats). the break-in period for the shoes was very short and they're super comfortable. adjustment options are top notch and the shoes seem to be worth the extra money. i've found sizing for the sidis seem to run a bit small.. i had to get a size larger. if you're ordering from online, might be a good idea to try some on before you buy.
