The Vertigo was created after an arduous 2+ year development period with lofty goals in mind. The boot had to push the technology of the sport road boot segment to an even higher level than the legendary Vertebra series. They are designed to be the best, no matter the cost. The Vertigo series of boots has achieved all that and much more! Shock Absorbing Heel Cup Three stage, shock absorbing heel cup molded in three different densities of plastic is one element that sets the Vertigo series apart from all other sport boots. This system offers a built in shock absorbing range of 3mm. The heel cups internal area is also fully lined with impact resistant thousand-air cell memory foam for and extra level of comfort and protection. Lining Each Vertigo series boot is lined throughout with lightweight perforated Teflon treated fabric in order to allow moisture to breath out to the Lorica outer and dry quickly with no mold build up in the long term. Additionally the inner ankle area of all Vertigo series boots are flly lined with Sidis own formula of perforated closed thousand-air cell memory foam. A totally breathable lining system. Tecno VR System The Vertigo series of boots are the only race boots to offer a patented Tecno VR adjustable calf system designed to accommodate calves of virtually any size in a clean, supportive and protective design. With a simple adjustment of the Tecno knob the internal onofilament line will evenly close and wrap the boot around the riders calf in micro adjustments for a perfect fit. A maximum adjustment of 5cm is provided. Replaceable Scuff Pad Option of either a ceramic or nylon toe scuff. Air Vent System Both the Vertigo Corsa and Vertigo employ an air ventilation system that can be opened or closed with a touch of a button depending upon a riders needs. This Malleolus guard on the outer edge of each boot also protects the small and vulnerable foot bones. Composite Inner Sole The composite inner sole of Sidi boots resists side to side compression offering greater protection compared to the leather inner soles that our competitors use. The insole features a removable arch support and will never lose its dynamic characteristics, even after months of intense use it is water resistant and is designed to withstand high footpeg pressures. Replaceable Parts Every bolt on component of each Vertigo boot is available separately. Riders can change the various components to replace items that have worn or have been damaged in a crash. Lorica reg Boots outer is fully constructed with Lorica a composite micro fiber material created from strands less than one thousandth the thickness of silk. When injected with special resins, these fibers act like natural leather skin, but with the addition of better strength, softer texture, lighter weight and better moisture protection. Lorica is also highly resistant to abrasion yet it still breathes with more than three million pores per square centimeter. Easy to maintain, Lorica doesnt stain and cant be scratched and offers, reduced weight, more flexibility and more feel than leather racing boots. Please Note The Vertigo boots no longer offer a replaceable shin plate.

I bought these boots using credit from a previous purchase so the pricing was great! These boots are very well-made and have lots of features that make it easy to customize the fit as well as maintain ventilation while riding. I ride hundreds of miles each week and these are the boots I choose to wear most of the time. I've worn them in the rain and in cooler weather without any problems. I find these to be comfortable to wear and I always can feel the controls through them.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought the Sargent seat to replace the OEM seat on my 2007 FZ1. I found the OEM model would leave me numb after an hour or so. The Sargent unit fit in place perfectly, and I was very impressed with the quality of the product as well as the extra features like the LED light. I felt it took me about a week to get used the new seat, but now I can comfortable for a much longer period than before. In addition, the Sargent seat feels a touch lower than the OEM model which helps me in the twisties.
Yes, I recommend this product.
