The Sidi Roarr boots are high-spec but affordable race boots that are more than tough enough for the track. These boots are packed with Sidi race technology, perfected over 50 years of lab and track testing. The feedback from top MotoGP racers has enabled Sidi to develop a boot that is flexible but tough, streamlined and ready for hard riding, on the track or on the road. The Roarr boots are yet another Sidi triumph.
The outer construction of the Sidi Roarr boots uses Technomicro, a man-made microfibre material which looks like leather, and offers the same abrasion resistance. The difference is that Technomicro is lighter and softer, shaving weight off these boots for a more comfortable feel. Thanks to this clever material, the Roarr boots are water and stain resistant, offering greater resilience than leather, in all conditions.
The inner of the Sidi Roarr boots is made of a 3D 'honeycomb' material called Air Teflon mesh, which traps pockets of air in order to keep a thin layer of air circulating around the rider's feet. The on/off ventilation system draws in cool air to keep the rider comfortable. The ventilation system can be operated easily with gloves, when it needs to be closed in colder weather. The comfort credentials of the Roarr boots are further boosted by the elasticated panel adjacent to the zipper, which allows a small amount of flexibility when putting on the boots, around the bony ankle zone.
The retention system of the Sidi Roarr boots also contributes to the rider's comfort. Comfort is incredibly important when sharp focus is needed on the track, and Sidi know this well. The Tecno-3 tensioner that sits on the calf provides an easy way of creating a custom fit for the rider (whatever their calf size), by use of a strong metal wire which can be adjusted and loosened as needed. As metal has been used, this retention system won't wear out, and the whole system can be replaced if damaged.
Another technological leap is the use of an external ankle brace, which connects to the TPU leg protection at the back of the boot leg. The ankle support braces are made of nylon, reinforced with carbon fibre.These tough supports protect the ankle from impact and prevent the ankle from twisting, to avoid severe injuries to this vulnerable part of the foot. Despite their rigid construction, the ankle braces allow the full range of natural ankle movement. Like all the external parts of these boots, the braces are replaceable. This prolongs the life of the boots, so that they can be worn for season after season.
The feedback from Sidi's work with top racers has informed the design of the Sidi Roarr boots, leading to some changes in the traditional race boot design. The fixed shin plate on the Sidi Roarr boots is larger than previous models of Sidi race boots, providing greater impact protection. The ventilation system on the side of the boot has a more aerodynamic design which sits close to the boot. The medial side of the Sidi Roarr boots, closest to the bike, has been designed without bulk and interference, for really close communication with the bike.
Of course, Sidi have also included the familiar race armour, such as the replaceable TPU toe slider and TPU heel cup. These boots feature a high-end Sidi rubber race sole, which is also able to be replaced when worn down.
