Beaut boots

Old Bike Australasia - - GOOD GEAR -

Formed in 2005, Ital­ian com­pany TCX has been an in­no­va­tor in mo­tor­cy­cle boots ever since. In fact, the name is de­rived from the com­pany’s patented Tor­sion Con­trol Sys­tem which is in­cor­po­rated in both road and off-road styles. While the high-end boots worn by such as Mo­toGP star Jo­hann Zarco are as trick as you can get, TCX also make tra­di­tional styles such as the X-Five Water­proof, part of the Tour­ing Clas­sics range. These have an up­per of full grain leather with a water­proof lin­ing, re­in­forced shin pad, shin plate and heel counter. The full-length ver­ti­cal zip (with a Vel­cro flap) makes it easy to get the boots on and off, and should it be re­quired, the sole is re­place­able. Sizes range from EU 36-48 in black only, with a RRP of $279.00. Dis­trib­uted in Aus­tralia by Link In­ter­na­tional. www.link­int.com.au
