Top Features of the Sidi Diablo Gore Tex Winter MTB Boots Synthetic upper with Lorica Toe Inserts Waterproof and breathable Gore-tex membrane lining MTB Competition sole Three Strap closure High cuff with wide closure Sidi Heel cup Product Data MTB: Yes Commuter: Yes Cleat Fitting- 2 Bolt SPD Type: Yes Sole Material: Polyamide Use: Off-Road/Commuting High Visibility: No Winter Boot: Yes Gore Tex Logo The GORE-TEX Membrane The secret of GORE-TEX products lies within the revolutionary bi-component membrane; both completely waterproof and completely breathable at the same time. The membrane contains over 9 billion microscopic pores which are approximately 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, but 700 times bigger than a molecule of moisture vapor. So while water in its liquid form cannot penetrate the GORE-TEX® membrane, as moisture vapor it can easily escape. The patented GORE-TEX® membrane makes garments durably waterproof, windproof and breathable so that you stay dry and comfortable. Lorica Lorica is a man-made material that is lighter than leather. It is both breathable and water-repellent, however, it does not retain foot odours. As well as being tough and resistant to scratches, Lorica conforms to the shape of the foot like leather without the shoe having to be 'broken in'. Sidi Heel Cup A reinforced Heel cup for stability and support on sprints and climbs. The Sidi Heel cup holds your foot securely in the correct position in all points of the pedal stroke with an external cup that braces the shoe against prolonged pressure. Sidi MTB Competition sole The Sidi MTB competition sole is compatible with all 2-bolt SPD cleats and pedal systems. The stiff polyamide compound ensures the every watt of energy in your pedal stroke reaches your drivetrain with none wasted on flex. Molded tread lets you walk comfortably with the option to attach toe spikes for extra traction in wet and muddy conditions.

About Merlin Cycles
This cycling deal was found at Merlin Cycles, one of the UK's most famous bike shops, located up North!
Merlin Cycles started life in 1993, founded by John Moss as a mail order Mountain Bike business ran directly from his spare bedroom in Chorley. Due to early growth, shortly afterwards he opened his first outlet in Ormskirk, and a few years later in 1998, the company grew into larger premises, moving to Leyland.
In the 1990's and early 2000's, Merlin were known for their ranges of mountain bike hardtails, released under the Rock Lobster and Merlin "Malt" brands. These steel and aluminium hardtails were designed in house, available as framesets or complete bikes, representing excellent value for money. The company was also well known for their handbuilt MTB wheels, which in my experience lasted for years without needing truing!
Merlin have always been competitive on pricing, particularly on suspension forks, brakes, wheels and groupsets, which continues to this day. Nowadays they have introduced road cycling equipment and clothing into their product ranges, due to the increase in popularity in this field, thus catering for a broader range of cyclists.
