Sidi Adventure GTX Boots Based on the outstanding success of the Sidi Adventure Rain Boots , it has been decided that the full Gore-Tex version of the boot will be imported from Italy. Previously this boot was only available in Europe. This ultimate adventure boot combines the best of both worlds (offroad and touring) into a boot that is extremely protective as well as comfortable both on and off the bike. With the Gore-Tex membrane these boots are 100 waterproof as well being highly breathable. These boots come with the Gore-Tex Guaranteed to Keep You Dry promise. 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.

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.
