Riding without gear is like Googling Jenna Jameson with the SafeSearch on-stupid. Instead, go for the full monty and stay safe with proper protection. This month we're up close and personal with an array of Sidi boots from Motonation. Long considered to be one of the best in the business, Sidi offers full-length boots from budget to baller.
Vortice Vernice $500
These boots are so magical they'd make even your grandpa a MotoGP champ. OK, so maybe they don't work miracles, but with decades of innovation in their DNA you're surely getting the pinnacle of performance. And with more features than an iPhone even the tech-heads will be speechless. If ever you could be crowned a king with just the swipe of a card, this would be your ticket.
A two-piece sole features a removable/replaceable insert to make replacement easier when the original gets worn out. Some of the safety features are an external ankle brace system, a shock-absorbing heel cup and an Achilles reinforcement area with extra padding.
Forget the hefty checkbook and throw out the loan papers because the Vertigo is packin' weight without the coin. Now available at an affordable price, not long ago these were Sidi's flagship boots. So if you'd like to have your cake and eat it too, these are the ones for you.
Sidi's patented Vertebra System allows each panel to moveindependently. Replaceable skid pads on the toe are pretty clever along with the boots' full Lorica construction. What's Lorica? A microfiber thinner than silk but stronger than leather!
Shattering the notion that Sidis are for the rich man's closet, the Fusion proves that quality doesn't cost a fortune. With trickle-down tech from its bigger brothers these are the safe bet if you're a little in debt.
The Fusion is all-new for 2010, and because it features much of the same technology as its high-end brethren it's a great choice for the economically aware. The Vertebra System made its way onto the Fusion along with a dual compound sole and removable arch support. Colors are limited to black only.
