Chicken Hawk Racing Tire Warmers - Pole Position Redesigned for 2012 to feature Neoprene side panels for additional insulation, helps to block wind from reaching the tire or rim and provides a smooth fit. Hot tire pressure is more important than ever. These neoprene sides additionally insulate the tire and wheel, and help block wind blowing across your rims. The elastic stretch also provides a smooth fit!

The Middle setting is designed specifically for softer compound tires.

Hard Case - this camcorder style case is blow-molded and impact resistant. Two tire warmers fit perfectly and are protected for packing.

I have used these once so far and had a noticeable reduction/elimination in cold tire tears at the track, the added benefit of waiting a few laps to heat the tires is great. I also like the 3 ranges of heat. I am not a fast guy but these definitely instill some confidence and that leads to more speed.

Sidi Vortice Boots It was thought that the award winning Sidi Vertigo Corsa boot was the pinnacle of sport boot technology. Until today that is as Sidi is proud to introduce the next step in the evolutionary chain The Vortice. The latest in technology combined with the great skill and workmanship of Sidis Italian based factory technicians blend in a whirl of fresh solutions to satisfy a riders desire for safety and comfort. Constructed of Lorica and is lined with Teflon vented mesh. Only Sidi goes to trouble and expense of creating a multiple liner boot system in its racing boots. Lorica is a composite micro fiber material created from strands that are so fine, each one is 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. Sidi has added a small elastic panel to aid in a smooth zipper operation as it allows a bit of movement via the elastic as the zipper passes over the riders ankle ball. The rear upper part of the boot is made up of the following mechanisms A) The TECNO CALF TENSIONER mechanism adjusts the leg circumference. Placed in the back of the boots upper, it works through a nylon wire that hooks directly to the shin plate. B) The TECNO SHIN TENSIONER mechanism helps the TECNO CALF TENSIONER close the leg upper on the front part of the boot. The two lateral nylon braces join the ankle joint with two screws that are protected by nylon caps. This system is reinforced with fiberglass, supports the ankle and is easy to replace. This system allows excellent flex movement front-to-back while being firm side-to-side. Tecno Instep Tensioner, a fastening system on the front part of the foot, on the instep. Shock Absorbing Heel Cup Non-vented Shin Plate Gear Change Pad Vortice Slider toe slider is made in nylon reinforced with fiberglass. It is fitted with a new air intake and an innovative alloy insert. Racing SRS Sole all new sole is constructed of a polyurethane and rubber blend.

I used these for the first time at a NESBA event, it was in the high 80's to low 90's throughout the day and on and off track the boots were comfortable and easy to use. On track airflow fit and performance was superb, off track I was in then all day with minor chaffing on my lower calf that I attribute to a very thin summer sock. After lunch I doubled up the sock and the chaffing went away.
