Boot technology is changing - check out these new MX boots from Scott : Scott Genius
They look like the new Tenere designers had a hand in their creation.
those Scott boots look squeaky. If not when new, then shortly thereafter.
I had a pair of the all plastic Scott boots in the early 80's. Lots of protection and ZERO feel. My transmission paid the price...
oser oser oser
The thing that kills me is that the black boot looks better!!
(I've worn a few of them, so maybe I'm bias.... )
Anybody ever ridden these before. They may have been mentioned, but I don't have the patience to read this whole thing. I ride mainly on the street. Don't want something super stiff, but like the protection.
Robocop called. He wants his boots back.
im okay wearing my Sidi Tapor boots all winter, but when summer comes, they are nothing short of brutal. i have really decided not to wear them this summer even if it meant riding in flip-flops.
any good ideas for a pair of summer boots? not incased in black leather?
I use carhart insulated workboots. They're 100% waterproof and they stay cool because of the insulation. But, they are lacking in ankle protection, of course. My CBL's are not too bad if I ride offroad.
I recommend the TCX Air Tech's. Not perfect, but waterproof for rainy summers, and ventilated.
Had a pair since last August and they're indeed waterproof. Ventilation is pretty good. If you are willing to sacrifice waterproof, you could probably get a little better ventilation, but these are really pretty good.
+ a billion in my book.
I've worn mine for about a year and a half. My feet only got cold on the coldest days.
ahh, newenough...havent visited that site in awhile. well, they sure look good, hopefully they will stay somewhat cool in the summer. both of my sidi boots are good in cool weather, but there is no way i could even consider cooking my feet through another summer.
There is definitely a tradeoff between waterproofness and ventilation. Goretext is the usual approach to striking a balance, but if you tend to have hot feet (like me), and it isn't all that rainy where you ride, then you could probably do even better in terms of ventilation than the Air Tech. For my use in FL, there is way too much rain to ignore it, so I live with a little extra heat. But full leather I fear would be way too hot for my taste. I even have trouble with leather sneakers, and always buy mesh tennis shoes.
hmmm you guys make me feel like my 2nd hand Answer Mode Boots are useless... time to go shop for alternatives because the big guys say so.
Fatbikez still carrying the Infinities? I can't seem to find any boots at all there
I remember those Scott plastic squeekers in the 80's. Might have been just bad luck but a few people around had some horrendous knee damage but feet and ankles were unharmed. Such a thing as too much protection?
Anyone? Anyone? Beuller?
No, sorry, never heard of 'em
