The SIDI boots are one of the best sporty boots we can find on the market. It is a very protective footwear used by MotoGp and Superbikes racers, as Alex Rins, Bradley Smith or Sylvain Guintoli.
Materials and construction
The SIDI Vortice have been made with Lorica, a microfiber that has better resistance to the wear than the basic leather, being lighter. On the inside we find a teflon mesh, offering ventilation and isolation to the feet.
The SIDI Vortice has a particular construction: we can find two different parts. The main one includes microfiber, with accordion areas that will give us comfort and flexibility. The other part is an external polymer chasis, offering rigidity and protection. The great advantage of this construction is that it allows to replace elements worn or broken, thanks to an advanced screws system.
The external polymer chasis offers a good rigidity and protection, but the Sidi Vortice boots also include protectors in the toecap and the heel. The toe is reinforced with an external aluminum slider (replaceable). The heel's protector is big and there are internal protectors for a greater absorption of hits. There are also rubber bands according to give a better contact between the racer and the bike. In the shin there is a polyurethane protector and in the instep there is another reinforcement with the same material.
The closure system of these boots is another great solution. Through a tension system mechanism named Tecno Tensioner, we can do a fine adjust in three different areas of the boot. We can also set free the tension through the same thumbwheel that we uso to fasten the boot. There is also a zipper closure in the side of the boot and a Velcro closure on the upper area of the boot.
Regarding the ventilation, the SIDI Vortice include air inlets in the toecap and the external side with an on-off mechanism.
SIDI's SRS sole is made with a rubber and polyurethane compound. The central area is replaceable if we want to change it due to the wear.
With the SIDI Vortice boots we have comfortable boots for a sporty riding style. High quality materials and elements and we can also find the "vented" version in the market.
