Can anyone comment on whether these fit true to size? How is the width, etc? I'm aware of their return policy, but I would rather not have to deal with returning them more than once.

My last two pairs of shoes are as follows:

specialized s-works: size 13
Giro Factor: size 12

I use size 42 in Sidi, tried a similar fit Bontrager shoe which seemed nice but the straps were too short so they received a "fail" in my book...

Had the same issue. Fit OK but the straps are way too short. Ive heard the cleat mounting bolts trip out easily too.

I just tried on a pair of Race XXX Lite LE (strap only red shoe.) They're light. The left shoe, size 43, weighs 207 gm.

I wear 42.5 in both SIDI Genius and Bontrager RXL. The RXXXL is the same length, but much narrower in the toe box. It feels almost like a sock rather than a shoe, but was too tight for my forefoot. Bontrager says the 2012 RXL will fit the same as the RXXXL, while their RL and below will keep the 2011 fit.
