    What's better

    I'm sure there are a ton of threads on this but I'll be honest, I'm just to lazy to search them. Hahaha. I'm saving up for new boots, anything I get will be better then what I have but which ones are better, the tech 10's, fox instinct, or gaerne sg12 or 10. If I'm gonna save up I want a top pair. Thanks
  3. I think I need to step up from a $100 crappy boot to a $200 boot, seems to be the sweet spot for a decent setup. I ride trails in colorado, little to no mud. should I go for the ATV sole or the regular MX one? what boot would you suggest for about $200 The Alpenstars Tech 3 http://bit.ly/hQAiz3 or Gaern GX-1 http://bit.ly/hjuSwq -Zach
  4. This might be a dumb question, just want to make sure? ( can you take them on an air plain)
  5. Hey guys, need some advice or input from anybody that has worn either Gaerne SG10 or Fox F3 Race MX boots – how did you like them and which did you prefer? I have my eyes on these and can’t decide which one to go for: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/gaerne-SG10-MX-boots-motocross-size-8-US-/171270144496?pt=Apparel_Merchandise&hash=item27e07f01f0&vxp=mtr http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Fox-f3-race-MX-boots-motocross-size-9-US-/171271243237?pt=Apparel_Merchandise&hash=item27e08fc5e5&vxp=mtr

    SG10 Boot Breakin?

    Bought my first nice pair of boots recently. They are comfortable lengthwise and in the calf, etc. But they feel pretty tight across the top of my foot near the ankle and in the ankle padding. I've read that they break in pretty fast and then feel terrific, just wondering if what I am feeling is normal. My measured shoe size is 9.5, so I ordered a size 9. Here in the South we wear as thin socks as we can get away with, so I'm thinking a 10 would be too loose to provide good protection. Any feedback on these boots would be appreciated. ~ Mick

  8. I did search the main Dirt Bike section and the crowd favorite seems to be Gaerne. Most of the discussion did center around my primary concerns. - Comfort - Walkability - Price I really like the Balance and the SG10 looks to be a reasonable alternative although more aggressive than I think I want. What do y'all use and like? Tried and didn't like?

  11. I'm sure this has been discussed before, but 2015 is coming to an end and I'm wondering what everybody's experiences are. After being a fan of Alpinestars for the past 8 years, I'm giving up on them due to their lack of protection. If a simple stick can puncture the leather and leave me with a nice hospital bill, I don't want them on my feet. I was thinking of the Sidi Crossfire 2 boots because of the hard plastic for protection on the foot/toe area. Any thoughts? I'll be moving to the southwest in a few months and plan on doing a lot of solo night rides, so the last thing I want is to be stranded with an injury that could have been avoided by a better choice in boots. Thanks for any input!!
  12. Local MC shop has boots on sale .. I wear an 8.5 shoe ..my current boots I have are Shift Combats in 10 .. i bought these when I got my 4 wheeler back in 09 Thinking about using some santa money and buy me new pair of boots Looking at Thor ratchets and FOX Comp 5 .. the dealer has these marked down to $99.99 ... why? because he basicaly has all the same same size .. size 9 I need to go back with different socks and see if they will even fit properly .. what i noticed today: THOR - snug in the ankle -- stiff in the ankle areas -- stiff -- ratchet system slick as snot FOX Comp5 - Comfy fit -- no toe guards -- feels like would break in quickly -- snug in ankle area -- nice tread design (tennis shoe like) I'm looking for those that may wear these boots ...god the bad and ugly ?? any input appreciated
  13. Well Guys... This Sunday will be my first real trip out into the woods with a group of accomplished riders. Needless to say I am shaking in my boots. This trail is a few hours long - not quite sure how long. I have my TTR 230 and they have much more elaborate and proper bikes, not to mention these guys are very accomplished. I am prepping the night before, cleaning my bike, checking things over, bringing extra stuff with me. I got my Hydorpack ready! What else should I take with me? This trail offers EVERYTHING : Mud Rocks, Creek Crossings, hills, lot of dirt and technical stuff! I still have a small issue with my bike that is scared of water (stalls in about a foot of water only to fire right back up and run like a champ after walking it out) I am still wet behind the ears and my stomach is crunching! I will try and take the " look ahead " and " stand up " suggestions very seriously ! What else do you recommend a newbie like me to do ? also what are good foods that I should be eating the night before / day of? Thanks!
  14. I ride an xr200 1991 and got some fly boots for fairly cheap used. Shifting is hard! And unless I hold my foot out towards the side I always accident up shift. And brakes, I can't be as gentle with them. It's either no breakers or rear wheel lock up. Any help and tips would be greatly appreciated.

  17. Wear riding boots! Definatly investing in another pair since I grew out of mine. You can get road rash burns and break your ankle. Unfortunately I got all 3 in my ankle and road rash everywhere. So happy my kx250f survived the fall with only bent forks that we were lucky enough to be able to make it unoticable. Heres a pic of the same day it happend, its been a over a moth and it still freakin hurts.
  18. Right now I ride with oneil piston boots or whatever their called, and I have a pair of Thor q1 too. Both of these boots, especially the oneil have really big toe boxes so sometimes shifting is hard. I know I can move up the shifter which I'll do anyway but are more expensive boots gonna be better? Like tech 7s, what about even tech 3s
  19. Looking into buying some boots and wasn't sure if these are a good pair. Any thoughts? I've never owned boots before so I have no clue what to look for.
  20. Let me preface this question by stating that I am a bona fide "noob".. I actually got my bike in the dirt for the very first time this past weekend. Also on this ride, I used MX boots for the very first time. My boots are made by Fly, I think they're the Maverick model (they're brand new). While riding, I found shifting to be VERY difficult. I was unable to feel the "click" of the shift, and that's when I could even find it. I had to greatly exaggerate my posture by leaning forward and I felt like I had to pull my whole leg up just to shift between gears, because there is so little movement in the ankle section of the boot. To make matters worse, as I was riding, I kept accidentally downshifting (without using the clutch) because I couldn't tell that my toes were resting on the shifter. So, my question is this.. Does everyone experience this, and I just have to get used to it? Do the boots break in at all, because it doesn't seem like they will.. they're stiff like ski boots. OR, did I just buy a sucky pair of boots, and if so which are better for this type thing?

    Sidi Crossfire boots

    0 reviews

    DESCRIPTION Providing the absolute best in protection, feel and support, the Sidi Crossfire remains unchallenged as the finest off road motorcycle boot available. With innovations and features like the unique dual flex system and cam-lock buckle closure, the Crossfire is designed to give you the most comfortable and progressive riding experience possible. Dual Flex System: Allows for easy movement forward and backward but is extremely strong side to side giving the rider the finest in ankle protection and long lasting comfort. The hinged, dual position, stitch-free upper is constructed from injection-molded plastic. With the exclusive Dual Flex system and the four floating, independent straps the Crossfire can provide each rider with a personal fit no matter his body shape or if he uses knee braces or not. Adjustable Calf System: Sidi’s exclusive, patented, adjustable calf system allows the rider to adjust the diameter of the Crossfire boot at the calf. This system, along with longer upper straps, allows the Crossfire boot to accommodate riders with larger calves easier than any other boot now available. The Crossfire can accommodate riders with up to a 22-inch calf diameter 14 inches above from the bottom of their heel. The inner plastic plate is made of two different materials; a rigid one to support the boot and a heat resistant one to protect the rider’s leg from exhaust heat. All components of this system are fully replaceable and are available in a wide variety of colors. Heel Detail: Three extended ribs are featured at the back of the boot to assist the rider in making upshifts with his heel when starting a race. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection. Non-Bootie Designs: Sidi boots do not incorporate inner booties into their design, and for good reason. Booties make the design larger and cumbersome; add to the boot’s thickness, which interferes with shifting, plus the inner booties retain body heat affecting the rider’s performance and comfort. Buckles: Sidi’s exclusive cam-lock buckle system is acknowledged as the finest system on the planet. It must be as most of Sidi’s competitors have attempted to copy various aspects of it. The cam-lock buckle system incorporates a strap memory retention system. Adjust the straps once and they will be at the same position for every ride after that! No more readjusting for every ride or mid-day during a ride. Toe Areas: The tip of the toe is covered with plastic to protect the base material and seams against abrasion from brush etc. Plastic shift and brake lever guards on the top of each foot area. Heat Shields: Each Sidi boot is equipped with an anti-heat undressed leather protection panel at the same height of most motorcycle’s exhaust heat shields. Composite Insole: Sidi is the only manufacture to use a composite insole that is anatomically shaped to the rider. A cushioned liner is provided that can be removed if the rider desires a more roomy fit. Sidi does not use steel shanks riveted to its insole like most manufactures, details such as this enable Sidi boots to enjoy a multi year service life versus the competitors multi month lifespan as over time, a steel shank can deteriorate, rust and fracture exposing the rider to injury. Lorica: Every Crossfire TA outers is fully constructed with Lorica a composite micro fiber material created from strands less than one thousandth the thickness of silk. When injected with special resins, these fibers act like natural leather skin, but with the addition of better strength, softer texture, lighter weight and better moisture protection. Lining: Cambrella is a lining that, due to its particular polyimide structure, guarantees a rapid drying rate after the boot gets wet or seaty. This prevents the onset of mold forming which extends the boots lifespan dramatically. The Teflon treated mesh panels in the rear calf area of the boot allow humidity to escape while the boot is in use.
  22. End of last year, I purchased a set of Forma Predators, direct from Forma. I have been racing and riding in them since December, and they were doing fantastic, I loved the boots riding, and they were holding up very well, and I'm hard on footwear. Well, last Sunday I went for a ride, got rained on, and got lots of mud on them, not wanting to get my truck muddy on the inside I put them in the bed. On the way back, I went into to grab a bite to eat, came back out, drove him without thinking about it, I unloaded my truck last night and guess what? Boots are missing, ok, maybe I just put them elsewhere, race trailer, nope, cab of truck? nope. Shop? Nope. Well.... shit. These were really expensive boots, not something I really had money for to replace right now. I spent most of the morning really down in the dumps, here I am, 2 weekends away from race day with no boots. A couple of people on Facebook including the legendary M33 offered to help by lending me spare boots, which is much appreciated. But realizing a long term solution was needed, I called up Forma's office, the general manager answered, Kyle. After explaining my situation to him, he offered to sell a set to me for a greatly discounted price, he also shipped them fed ex 2 day, for free. Despite someone being a real shit head, theres still awesome people out there
  23. I'm still pretty new to offroad riding, and now I'm thinking seriously about some killer, hot-weather dirt bike pants. Yes, I know it's winter right now. I can save some money if I get the version of the pants that are designed to be slim at the ankle so that you can tuck it down inside your motorcycle boots. However I'm a little worried that this will make my lower legs and boots hotter. My guess is that if you wear your pants over your motorcycle boots, this will block the sun from hitting them and they won't cook my feet as much. However that extra looseness might be somewhat of a liability if it gets caught on something, like a foot peg, or branches along the trail. So what does the Thumpertalk community think on this topic?
  24. Hi, I just got a dirtbike and I dont have boots yet, I was wondering if it is worth getting them. I do pretty easy riding, nothing to hard. Thanks

    Motocross boots

    Maybe this would be better in the general forum but I trust you guys. I've been riding in tennis shoes since I got my bike and haven't really be riding to hard but I think I should at least get a decent pair of motocross boots. What I'm looking for is no walking around, pure protection when riding in the dirt. Also, I'm not ready to spring $500 - $600 for top of the line boots but also don't want cheap junk. I've been considering the AlpineStar tech 3 around $220 and the Fox Comp 5 around $200. Any experience with either boot? something else around the same price or something better for just a little more?
