The Sidi Dominator 5 is a high-end cross-country mountain bike shoe. Most comparable to shoes such as our Best Buy winner, the Giro Privateer R, the Dominator offers similar performance with a higher pedigree and price to match. Its lightweight, comfortable fit and top-notch construction made it a favorite of our testers. The sole is stiff and provides great power transfer. The ratchet strap, buckle, and the lugs on the outsole are replaceable, which can help to extend the service life of the shoe.
The Dominator 5 has been discontinued and replaced with the new Dominator 7! Keep reading for more details on the update.
