Su­pertech R boot

Motorcycle Monthly - - Products -

Two boots in one go to make up the Su­pertech R. An in­ner soft boot car­ries hard tor­sion flex bars through the an­kle and has re­in­forced ar­eas, while the outer is light­weight leather with sub­stan­tial body ar­mour re­in­forced with metal plates on the heel.

Dur­ing the crash my left foot was trapped un­der the bike for a lot of the slide. The dam­age to the boot was min­i­mal, in fact I’ve rid­den with them on track since and they’ll eas­ily take more pound­ings for a long while yet. If I was both­ered about the scuffs then it’d be fairly easy to re­place those parts for new ones to keep ev­ery­thing spick and span.

Fit-wise, th­ese are the best boots I’ve ever worn. They feel more like slip­pers with a lovely thin sole which lets all the bike’s feed­back get through to your feet.
