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.

While on the bike they are invisible. Walking around is fine, but I wouldn't want to walk for hours.

I wear under perforated leather.
It's pretty warm considering how thin it is. Does a great job of blocking the wind also. Worn down to 45 degrees.
Liner is not made for my jacket, but still works.
Pros Thin
Yes, I recommend this product.

I didn't want the hassle of putting on and taking off a full race glove on the street. This seems to be a good comprise. Seems well made, only complaint is one of the armors pads dig in to my finger when making a fist.
Very happy with them so far.
Haven't ridden in any high temperature to review the ventilation.
Thanks to Revzilla team for this suggestion.
Pros Rugged, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

First got to give thanks for Revzilla team that helped me for over and hour trying on tons of helmets.
This helmet flows a ton of air, and I had no problems with fog yet. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the high price. I guess you get what you pay for though, because this helmet just exudes quality.
Pros Comfortable
Cons Very Expensive
Yes, I recommend this product.
