Sidi Crossfire SRS 2 Boots The newest evolution of SIDI's offroad boot the Crossfire 2 features a new adjustable system of the area between the protective calf-exaust and the front of the boot to allow a rider with a wider calf to be very comfortable. Dual Flex System The hinged, dual position, stitch-free upper is constructed from injection-molded plastic. With the exclusive Dual Flex system and the four floating independent straps the Crossfire can provide each rider with a personal fit no matter of body shape or use with knee braces or not. Adjustable Calf System Sidi's exclusive, patented, adjustable calf system allows the rider to adjust the diameter of the Crossfire boot at the calf. This system, along with longer upper straps, allows the Crossfire boot to accommodate riders with larger calves much easier than the previous Crossfire. The Crossfire can accommodate riders with up to a 22-inch calf diameter 14 inches above from the bottom of their heel. The inner plastic plate is made of two different materials a rigid one to support the boot and a heat resistant one to protect the rider's leg from exhaust heat. All components of this system are fully replaceable and are available in a wide variety of colors for the option of customizing the boot to your taste. Heel Detail Three extended ribs are featured at the back of the boot to assist the rider in making upshifts with his heel when starting a race. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection. Non-Bootie Design Sidi boots do not incorporate inner booties into their design, and for good reason. Booties make the design larger and cumbersome, add to the boot's thickness, which interferes with shifting, plus the inner booties retain body heat affecting the rider's performance and comfort. Buckles The cam-lock buckle system incorporates a strap memory retention system. Adjust the straps once and they will be at the same position for every ride after that! No more readjusting for every ride or mid-day during a ride. Toe The tip of the toe on the Crossfire and Charger boots are covered with plastic to protect the base material and seems against abrasion from brush etc. Plastic shift and brake lever guards on the top of each foot area. Other Features Lined with air Teflon mesh and Cambrelle Upper in leather and Microfibre material Replaceable shin plate Micro and replaceable Adjustable buckles Dual Flex System Adjustable Calf System Replaceable Metatarsus Inserts Thermoplastic defender on the toe area Anatomically shaped heel Assembled and replaceable boot leg, it is stitch-free Nylon Inner sole with removable arch support TA Rubber sole

I have Sidi Rain, and Sidi Adventure Goretex boots. Love them 100%. Ordered 11.5/46 based on the aforementioned boots that fit already perfect. I wear a size 10.5 us shoe and tactical boot. I have to wear the 11.5 in the aforementioned sizes because they run small. So once I received the 11.5 SIDI Crossfire 2 SRS boots, they were really tight. I adjusted the upper calf panels as far out as they would go and the velcro closures bare even made contact over my Klim Dakar under the boot pants. The foot width and length of these boots were extremely tight on me and very uncomfortable. I returned them and bought the 12.5. The foot width and length were now equivalent to my adventure and rain boots. However, the calf adjustment had to be maxed out again and even enter doing to, they were still extremely tight over my dakar pants and the velcro closures on the inner liner barely made contact. The latches were just fine. So. If you order these, I would order 2 sizes larger than you think. The boots are still very tight on my foot but they fit. They are supposed to be tight since they are motocross boots and should fit tight for better protection. But, again. Order 2 sizes larger than your measurement since compared to the Sidi sizing and the Adventure and Rain boots, they aren't similar at all in size. I would recommend anything Sidi. I love them. And I fully intend on not having to go to the hospital for a foot or lower leg injury due to these boots. You get what you pay for.

These pants fit true to size and are exactly as advertised. I just with that they came with the hip protection for the hip pouches. You can buy them though.

I ordered this helmet for Hare Scrambles. I ordered the size of XL based on the manufacturer's size chart. I have a 24"/61mm exactly long oval dome. This helmet runs a little small based on my Shuberth C3 and Arai XD dual sport helmet. I would say 23.5" to 59.5mm would be more accurate as to the maximum circumference for this helmet. Revzilla has no 2XL's to compare to for reference. Other than the sizing being a little too small and feeling extremely tight, the manufacturing, fit/finish, and materials seemed to be top notch. I returned this using Revzilla's no hassle return process. Completed in less than 60 seconds on my account. If you are on the fence about Revzilla, don't be. This company is outstanding on their customer service and rapid shipping.
