Product Review: Sidi ST Gore boots (£314.99)

Product Review: Sidi ST Gore boots (£314.99)

RiDE review: Alpinestars S-MX Plus boots

RiDE review: Alpinestars Supertech R boots

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,...

RiDE review: Falco Eso Lx boots

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...
