Taking their top of line racing boot as inspiration, Sidi introduce the Sidi Rex boot. This full specification racing boot was borne from the ashes of the Sidi Vortice boot, further evolving the Sidi racing boots to something even better. These race boots have been created using input and feedback from MotoGP racers such as Bradley Smith and former champion Loris Capirossi to produce a racing boot that performs flawlessly on the track. CE approved for your peace of mind, the Sidi Rex boots offer the perfect balance of performance and protection on track.
The upper of the Sidi Rex boots is created in a Technomicro Microfibre materials which blends strength and comfort without compromising on weight, making it the perfect material for a motorcycle racing boot. Technomicro is a man-made microfibre composite material, with strands less than one-thousandth the thickness of silk. These tightly woven strands mirrors the strength and durability of traditional leather without the risk of imperfections that can occur with a natural material. This material is as lightweight as it is hardwearing and is capable of riding just as hard as you are. Technomicro is also water resistant, but by no means waterproof. The material is highly resistant to tearing and abrasion and is very easy to clean and maintain, ensuring your Sidi Rex boots look newer for longer.
The inner of the boot is lined with a Maglina Air Teflon for a smooth, comfortable interior of the boot. This material allows for superior breathability within the boot, allowing air into the boot via the various ventilation areas on the Sidi Rex and circulating this air thanks to hundreds of tiny air pockets within the material. These ventilation areas are at areas where the most cool air is such as the side of the boot and in the toe slider; these ventilation areas can be opened and closed manually, allowing you to tailor the airflow into the boot when riding. For further ventilation from this Sidi racing boot, see the Sidi Rex Air boot. The rear upper section of the boots feature a pull tab for easy fitting of the boot as well as a soft material at the rear, increasing the comfort felt at the rear of the boot.
These Sidi motorcycle boots closure with a simple, innovative closing system in the form of the Tecno-3 push rotor system, providing a tailored, comfortable fit. This closure system uses high grade steel cables to close the boots, securing the boots at three points which are each tailored by the wearer to fit the optimum fit in terms of security and fit. Turning the dial at shin tensioner, mid tensioner and instep tensioner will tighten the boot; no need for zips with the Sidi Rex boots. This Sidi boot also features elastic panelling at the front and back joints of the boot. This allow for a slight expansion when putting the boot on as well as being internally padded at the areas for a comfortable, supported fit.
Protection is important in a motorcycle race boot and as such the Sidi Rex boots feature an external exoskeleton in the form of an ankle support brace, providing reinforcement from both impacts and hyperextension of the limbs, limiting the damage that can be done in an accident on track. This brace allows for natural movement when walking around in the paddock but limits any movement considered unnatural. This ankle support brace is created from a combination of nylon materials and glass fibre, retaining the strength necessary for a motorcycle boot whilst ensuring that the lightweight nature of this racing boot is not compromised. The ankle support brace also features a vented area at the outer bottom of the boot and an exhaust port behind the calf. This allows direct air flow into the boot and allows warm, stale air to efficiently exit the boot when necessary.
The Sidi Rex boots feature an asymmetrical heel cup; the benefits to this heel slider being asymmetrical is that it allows for greater contact with the side of the bike. The internal side of these Sidi boots features a soft fixed insert to limit scuffs and scrapes as well as provide better adherence to the side of the bike when leaning and cornering. The heel can sustain serious impact injuries where protection is inferior. Sidi's heel cup might look purely aesthetic, but the purpose runs far deeper than this. The heel cup absorption allows extreme force to dissipate through the structure, rather than through the heel.
