How do these compare to Net Air and Sidi Clever Air for air flow?
Would love a direct comparison between these three similarly priced vented boots if anyone has actually tested all three of them. I would love to test them all, but I'm not made of money... Just looking for the best air flow possible in a full length, well constructed, and decently protected boot.
I actually bought both the Canyon and Clever Air boots at the same time for a road trip. These do not vent at all when compared to the Clever Air's. The Canyons are very well constructed and so far have kept me very dry during a few hour downpour. But I wore the Clever Air's most of the time during the 8 day trip as they much more vented and I preferred that during the high 90's temps.
Just be aware that the Airs do not provide any water resistance, so if you have a full fairing on your bike and your feet are fairly covered, you may not care much about this. I ride an ST-1300 and parts of the Air's got wet when the skies opened up. I stopped and switched boots (and threw on the rain gear of course) and I was perfectly dry in the Canyons for the few hours it rained.
I would get the Clever Air's if air flow and keeping cool in the summer is your primary concern, hands down. They both seem to offer similar protection at the shin, maybe marginally sturdier feeling on the Canyons.
If you're looking for an all around boot that will be a 4 season boot, covering rain freezing temps as well as heat, the Canyons are the way to to imho. I found them warmer in the heat than the Airs but that's not to say I was uncomfortable in them with temps in the 90's. If I didn't have the Air's, I would have been happy to ride in the Canyons all day long. They are a better all around boot.
Hope this helps.
