Best thing about it: If I was forced to only have one pair of bike boots, it would be these.

They’re lightweight, waterproof and give plenty of feel, but an 80mph slide and tumble failed to damage the boots or me, so they’re tough too.

Worst thing about it: Gore-Tex is no longer available, and I’m not sure summer-only version would have the same all-round appeal.

Stars (out of five): ****

Cost: £149.99
Still available? Yes (non Gore-Tex from Moto Direct, 01773 864420)
