Lightweight MX Boots for Adventure Riding - Atomic-Moto

Fellow ADV Riders,

More and more people riding dual sport and ADV are looking toward motocross boots for their increased protection. This is a good trend, however many MX boots, especially lower priced models, are far too stiff and cumbersome. Unfortunately, this often results in categorical dismissal of all MX boots.

Some MX boots are much more livable than others. The key is in the weight, the shapes of the plastic, and their compound. These three models, at three separate price points, all are comfortable, light, supportive, and perform well. They also won't break the bank:

The Gaerne GX-1 is THE standard for light MX boots. The Moose M1.2 Enduro is an Asian-made, but is better executed than any other entry level boots from every other brand we looked at. The Forma Terrain TX, made in Europe, is the newcomer, and features a full mechanical hinge at a lower price point than any other brand available.

All are comfortable, light (about 1 lb more than Adventure Touring boots) and great for their respective price points.
