Motorcycle Racing/Sport Boot Reviews


Super Sport for the Street The TCX S-R1 boots are a “hypersport” street version of the TCX racing boots. A Gore-Tex membrane is included to make the boots waterproof and the S-R1 boots are also CE certified to EN13634. Paired with the built-in safety features and reasonable price, these boots are a winner. My apologies, …

Sidi Mag-1 Motorcycle Boots The new Sidi Mag-1 boots are top-of-the-line race boots loaded with technology and new features. They’re sort of a slimmed-down evolution of the Sidi Vortice boots (review) but made lighter (claimed 17%), much easier to wear and they’re also very comfortable, even for street use. New features include a redesigned “Tecno-3” ratcheting micrometric …

Sidi ST Boots Review The new Sidi ST and ST Air boots provide high levels of protection with ease of use. The entry and security system developed for the ST boots is easier to use for street or sport riding than the entry system found on the Sidi Vortice boots (review). Sidi quality and features abound, …

Gaerne GRS Motorcycle Boots Review The Gaerne GRS boots have a cumbersome entry system but the boots are comfortable once they’re on. Gaerne is not one of the most widely recognized names in motorcycle boots, at least in the U.S.A. But you may recognize some of their sponsored racers. The list includes Makoto Tamada (MotoGP); …

Preview: Sidi Vortice Racing Boots Looks like the new Sidi Vortice Boots will replace the Vertigo Corsa boots as the sport/race boot of choice! Many press releases arrive in the webBikeWorld inbox each week, but only those deemed newsworthy get published. Most of those consist of information regarding new motorcycles that we think are of …

Sidi Vortice Boots Review Serious track or race day boots with a closure system that provides securer fitting across the instep, the calf and the shin. We published a Sidi Vortice boots preview almost exactly two months ago in September of 2008. At that time, Motonation (the North American distributor for Sidi) promised that the boots would …

Falco 305 ESO TT Motorcycle Boots Review The Falco 305 ESO TT boots are high-quality real leather boots made the old-fashioned way — by hand in Italy. What does Falco have in common with Alpinestars, Forma, Gaerne, Sidi, StylMartin and TCX? Well, the obvious answer is, of course, that they all make motorcycle boots! But …

TCX SS Performance 2 Boots Review The Oxtar TCS Sport boots I reviewed back in 2004 have been my all-time favorites for a number of reasons. They fit perfectly; they’re easy to put on and take off and they’re comfortable (or as comfortable as a sport-oriented motorcycle boot can be). And they flow a surprising amount of …

Another Nice Pair From Oxtar The Oxtar Matrix boots are well made, attractive and comfortable. They have excellent foot, shin and ankle protection. They’re also CE-rated, waterproof and breathable and comfortable enough to wear all day long. Just about the time that I get a pair of motorcycle riding boots broken in to where they’re …
