Spada Pilgrim boots
Spada are going big this year on a range they call ‘everywear’ and the Pilgrim boots are the latest addition. The idea is they can fit in anywhere (get it?), whereas a pair of Sidi Racearamas only really look at home at Paddock Hill Bend. The Pilgrims look like normal boots, but have reinforced heels and toes and further reinforcement around the gearchange to protect against unnecessary wear. They come in black or brown in sizes 7-12.
The new Pirellis have a slightly harsher feel than the Metzelers and don’t give the impression there’s the same big, sticky footprint, but they still give lots of confidence. The Rosso IIIS let you have fun on a superbike safely around a fast track, so on the road you’ll never get close to their limit. They did everything extremely well, but they really excelled in overall stability. They warm up quickly, which is a benefit on the road and track. Overall these are fast, confidence-inspiring tyres.
