Sidi Adventure GTX Boots The Sidi Adventure GTX Boots are the gold standard for adventure riding boots. Sidi pulled all the best bits from their famous line of off-road boots and combined them with the legendary quality of their road boots to create the glorious hybrid cyborg that is the Adventure Gore-Tex Boots. A bit more comfortable than off-road boots, the Adventure GTX boots incorporate a hinged ankle support, a rigid and shock-resistant heel cup and composite inner sole with a top grain leather construction, replaceable cam-lock buckles and a sweat wicking cambrelle lining. The slim adjustable calf fits easily inside the pant leg of most riding pants, something that is not always possible with a traditional off-road boot, making them all the more attractive to ADV advocates and enduro enthusiasts. To top off the list of premium feathers these boots are 100 waterproof and breathable with a Gore-Tex lining that is Guaranteed to Keep You Dry . Features Soft rubber sole for maximum grip Replaceable strap system Top grain leather construction Composite inner sole Removable arch support Exclusive cam-lock buckle system Cambrelle lining Slim, cool non-bootie design Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection Split grain leather inner anti-wear/heat panel Single Flex System upper

This boot offers lots of protection and is fairly comfortable. However, due to the protection, the range of foot flexion and extension is limited. For example if one needs to be on their toes to stand over their bike it is hard to do in these boots. Also there is not a lot of feel for the controls or foot pegs. When maneuvering foot on foot peg the lugged sole can sometimes get caught as well. Shifting can also be difficult due to high toe box unless shift lever is adjusted. If one is looking for max protection great boot. If one is looking for more performance oriented boot then not so great.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Arai XD-4 Explore Helmet The Arai XD4 is world renowned for being the one of the best ADV touring helmets on the market and one of the few that achieves a Snell M2010 safety rating. The XD4 incorporates all of the same great qualities found in Arai's other helmets including the comfort liner and cheek pads that feature 5mm peel-away pads that allow riders to tailor the fit. The shell of the XD4 has also been aerodynamically tuned and, in concert with the removable floating peak visor, funnels air into the redesigned vents, improving overall ventilation and mitigating buffeting at speed. The XD-4 is the helmet of choice for many hardcore ADV enthusiasts and sets an industry standard for comfort, quality and safety. Features Comfort headliner, with micro fitting 5mm peel away temple pads Fully removable/replaceable/washable Interior Comfort head liner, Cheek pads, Chinstrap covers Dry-Cool technology keeps you dry and cool for greater comfort Patent pending, FCS (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design, also with a 5mm peel away micro fit feature Improved shell shape for better aerodynamic stability at higher street speeds Exhaust ports added to the top diffuser vents Chin vent with more intake ports Larger sculpted side cowl vents improve ventilation Snell M2010 approved

I own both this helmet and the current Shoei Hornet DS model. In comparing the two the xd-4 fit and sizing is close to the Hornet's. The xd-4 has better ventilation and doesn't tend to fog up as much as the Shoei. The xd-4 is also more stable at
speed. The Hornet gets buffeted more by the wind. The noise level is about the same in both helmets although I do notice a slight whistling noise from the xd-4. The Hornet may weigh slightly less, however the Hornet is a Snell 2005 vs. Snell 2010 for the xd-4. Both helmets have a wide angle of view. They are both good helmets but the xd-4 seems more refined in general than the Hornet. The Hornet probably needs an update.
Yes, I recommend this product.
