Date Reviewed: December 3, 2000

Strengths:    amazing comfort factor(they are sidis!), stiff(enough)sole, good traction on soft stuff,dry within 10 min's of gettin wet, well vented when hot, straps and buckles work great!

Weaknesses:    crazy colors(they are sidis!), shi++y traction on roots & rocks! Too well vented when cold!
But nothin major!


Bottom Line:   
Deadly shoes for xc stuff which i bought them for, but can duke it out well enough at the urban battle so far!
Bought them 2 years ago for xc cause they were top end sidi's and sidi had a wide toe box which is why i cant wear some other shoes! i thought the crazy colors were pretty bi+chin at the time??.. anyways they are great shoes tech-wise, the buckles and crazy strap system is wicked for tightening them up while on the move, after lost of use & abuse mine have only started to destitch in one little spot on the toe, but im gonna slap some shoe goo over the whole thing for protection anways!
BAD: not made anymore,
but the sidi actions are basically suped-up ghosts with some N&I strap contraptions and replaceable lug's,
SOOO if u want them, theres no reason not to get em! L8er!

Submitted by marco1 a Cross-Country Rider from Europe

Date Reviewed: September 16, 1999

Strengths:    
Good fit, aggressive sole, rigid, strap system


Weaknesses:    
Sole is slippery on wet rocks, colour ;), expensive


Bottom Line:   
Really nice fit but I have a flat foot profile, I have to put a second pair of insoles to get them straps work - the main lever works nicely!Very rigid sole, great for riding, sh** when walking. Materials seem flimsy but I guess they hold since there is no damage after 30 hours of riding in rocky terrain.

I plan to ride mostly on light to intermediate trails on weekends (nothing too technical) and use it to commute to work on roads/urban trails during the week. I was wondering if someone can tell me anything a ... Read More »

Ghost AMR Plus Lector 7700

Has anyone bought one of these or taken it for a long demo? It looks a great price for the spec and whilst it's a lessor known brand (to me anyway) I am wondering if it is a good option? Thanks!Read More »
