    Product Review: Sidi ST Gore boots (£314.99)

    What’s good about the Sidi ST Gore? I always have trouble finding boots that fit well, because I have laughably thin calves. These Sidis are the only boots I’ve found so far that can fit securely...

  • Dainese Axial Pro In boots (£379.99)

    22 January 2016 by Tim Thompson

    Dainese Axial Pro In boots (£379.99)

    What’s good about the Dainese Axial Pro In? These race boots walk a fine line between feel and substance, and do it perfectly. They are stiff in the right places (laterally and in a twisting motion)...

  • RiDE review: Alpinestars S-MX Plus boots

    10 January 2016 by RiDE Reviews

    RiDE review: Alpinestars S-MX Plus boots

    As comfortable on as off the bike. Only flimsy ankle articulation lets the protection down. Easy to get on and off, and well made, they instantly feel comfortable. Available vented or unvented, these...

    08 January 2016 by RiDE Reviews

    RiDE review: RST Tractech Evo boots

    A great-value boot that you can choose to have vented or waterproof for £20 more. Took a little while for the microtech – a man-made material that’s lighter than leather – to break in, but once it did...

    RiDE review: Daytona Security Evo 3 boots

    These are strictly race boots – they are so armoured and the sole is so rigid they make walking uncomfortable. But if you want the best protection nothing comes close. Hand-made, with a carbonfibre...

  • RiDE review: Alpinestars Supertech R boots

    06 January 2016 by RiDE Reviews

    RiDE review: Alpinestars Supertech R boots

    Strangely has the lowest CE score of any boot tested. But these are a racing boot so feel and thorough ankle articulation control are put before more road-based protection. The most comfortable,...

    04 January 2016 by RiDE Reviews

    RiDE review: Falco Eso Lx boots

    Full marks from the CE tests and a rigid ankle articulation brace that could make a real difference in a crash. Plastic is everywhere, which helps the abrasion score. Inside all that plastic the...

    RiDE review: Daytona Lady GTX boots

    RiDE review: TCX S-Speed GTX boots
