I have the fusion Rain model. The fit is a bit narrow to begin with but it stretched nicely with minimal use. Very snug fit, but true to size. I have Sidi Vertigo Air boots and they fit wide. I am not a D width wearer. Most times if it is a D width I'd go a half size down for better fit. The Fusion boots are more of a B width.
I've been soaked to the bone in torrential downpours here in Florida, and when I get home my feet and socks were totally dry!!! (nothing else was!)
I have had mine for the past two years and still they are totally waterproof!!!
I wear them daily on my commute to work. The soles are getting to where they may need replacing, but for the cost of a sole I think it best just to buy a new set. THIS IS SIDI'S BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK!!!!
I am tempted to get the Fusion Air, but the Fusion Rain breathes well enough for me even on the hottest summer rides here in Florida. That said, it's nice to have rain protection no matter what. You never know when it's going to rain and these boots are the SHIZZNIT!!!
I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. THEY BETTER NOT STOP MAKING THEM!
I see the new models have three versions. When I bought mine there was only the Fusion Rain or the Fusion Air.
Hope this review helps. - If you have narrow feet this is the boot for you, TRUST ME! Order your size and enjoy!

I have narrow heels and what I call flipper feet. I am flat-footed. These boots give me support in my arch, are perfectly snug on my heel and snug in the toe box. In comparison, I own a pair of Vertigo Air boots and they feel like they were made for 'D'-width feet. Both boots are size 11 -Euro 45. A lot of the time I buy 10.5 because most of the time the width is wider for me than I need. These were true to size and I would say they are narrow compared to an American fit, but that suits me just perfectly.
The reason I chose the Sidi Fusion Rain over so many other choices was the fact that the rain barrier goes almost al the way to the top of the boot and is not zipped up with the boot like so many others. To me, it's ridiculous to put a zipper in the rain barrier. That in itself causes leaks.
I tested these by getting caught in a 10 minute Florida downpour on my way to work. My scrub pants were soaked. My socks, feet, and boots were dry! The leather of the boot did not even get heavy or begin to soak. The top inside of the boots was also dry as a bone. No water ran down into the boots at all which surprised the heck out of me! Reason I say this is that I am one of those that have chicken legs. The calves of the boots are not snug on my calves, but then if they were I would say that walking in them would be painful. There has to be some play in the top to let the ankle and toe flex properly without rubbing and causing blisters.
The boots are rather stiff in the toe shift area. They took me two weeks of daily riding to break them in. I still miss upshifts with them on occasion, but the comfort and weather tightness of the boot makes missing a shift here and there a non-issue to me.
After a day on my feet at work in tennis shoes, the Fusion boots are a joy to put on as they give me instant support and actually rejuvenate my feet!
Do I recommend these? OH YEAH! Great bang for the buck and probably a real sleeper in the Sidi lineup. I plan to get the Fusion Air soon as summer rolls around again, but so far I've ridden with the Rain boots in 90F weather and no discomfort whatsoever after a 3 hour ride.

Unit was easy to install on my Bell Star, RS-1, Vortex, and Scorpion EXO-700. Speaker placement is key if you want to get full volume out of music playback. This can mean in some cases that you are blocking the mics with the cheek pads and that's where you hear people saying that they sound a bit muffled but clear to people on the other end of the call. Buttons are a bit stiff to press and multiple button combinations takes practice. You'll get muscle memory with practice, meaning you'll learn where the buttons are and it becomes easier over time. Just as a new helmet has the visor lift tab in different spots, you have to get used to it. Personally, I think the Sena unit has ease of functionality over all the other units. Afterall, it's only a jog dial and a single button in back. It is bulkier and you do have to have room for a boom mic in your helmet, but you also have options with the Sena like buying an earbud unit, which is optimal for listening to music or calls. But the larger unit is going to create more helmet wind noise. It's a trade-off which you'd like best really. Personally, I like this U-Clear unit but I think maybe the next gen they'll make the buttons easier to press. With normal summer riding gloves it's a tad tough to get the feel. not impossible, but takes practice as I mentioned. I think winter gloves would be a problem. Listening to music via earbuds offers the best volume and least noise intrusion. I previously used an i-Touch for that, but now i just sync my LG Optimus and use it exclusively with the U-Clear. Listening to music off the phone with only earbuds you do not get enough volume to ride at highway speeds. The U-Clear is plenty loud enough. Just make sure the speakers are placed best for your ear positions. Trial and error.
I have to update my profile on here. I currently ride a 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 1000. Least amount of wind noise is best with screen in full down position, even on highway it's not bad at all.

The item I received is nothing like what's pictured. The picture online looks like maybe some cold weather two-piece alternative. The standard Aero skirt is a simple one-piece unit. That's what I expected though. I don't know where this online photo came from.
Shipping and customer service as usual - stellar. I actually received the skirt before I got my helmet (tomorrow) and I ordered the helmet a couple days before I bought the skirt!!
Sorry guys, but I bought the helmet from another source since it was a hard to find closeout (Black Chameleon EXO 700) and was dirt cheap. It's going to be a secondary helmet anyway as I use my Bell Star around town here in Florida because of its superior venting in this Florida heat. The Scorpion will hopefully be used on hiway jaunts since I am expecting it to be a way quieter helmet at speeds. Venting at hiway speeds is a non-issue.
Again, so satisfied with my purchase of the Aero skirt from Revzilla. They were the only ones that had it!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Just got the seat yesterday. Typical great customer service and fast shipping.
Unboxed and examined the seat and it looks very well made. Seems a few pounds heavier than my stock saddle. that's of no consequence to me. The seat pan seems better built than my stock pan. don't know what to do with the tiny storage compartment. Maybe my owner's manual and registration and insurance. Yeah, that's the ticket.
Rode to work today on the new saddle. Seems a tad taller/wider. Actually felt warm against my butt and inner thighs.
Foam built up in the front so that there is very little forward lean, very nicely done. It doesn't force me to sit back, nor crowd the tank. Nor does it make it difficult to change positions and hold positions. Very nice.
Cover material is tacky against the pants, holding you in place pretty well. Stock seat was slick and I always ended up balls to the wall, so to speak.
Foam is firm, yet is makes the ride seem more cushy. It actually dampens the vibrations transmitted to the rider. It was noticeable immediately. I hope it holds up like that.
It was actually kind of fatiguing on the ride to work as I tried to find comfortable positions to sit. I found myself leaning on my wrists a lot, but on the ride home I started finding sweet spots and the fatigue issue was not present. I am sure it's a matter of break in as it was with the stock seat, which I have to say was all day comfy for me. I just got tired of sliding forward.
Overall excellent marks for this brand. Glad I bought it and look forward to breaking it in properly in the next few weeks (I ride daily, it shouldn't take long). I also look forward to the first 300 mile day on it.
Best price on the net for this seat right here at Revzilla. Thanks for the support and great service guys! Customer for life! (next on my laundry list is new rain gear...lol!)
