The Sidi Adventure has more protection, by virtue of having more plastic. They are more similar to the Sidi Discovery. FWIW I am a fan of Sidi but not a fan of the Adventures.
I definitely feel they are in the same league. In general, I feel these two brands make the best boots in the world. IMO Gaerne is the best FITTING boot in the world.
Hope that helps.
