OUR TOP 5 WINTER BOOTS

Posted on: October 17th, 2014 by Road Rider MCA No Comments

We’ve got the riding boots that can get you through this winter safely and comfortably. The following are our top boot picks for the cold and rainy months, but just because they’re waterproof doesn’t mean you won’t want to wear them all year round. Each of our top boots features a waterproof and breathable membrane layered just beneath their durable leather or synthetic exterior. While leather and synthetic leather materials may be water resistant, they are not waterproof. The breathable membrane sub-layer of your boots will keep your feet dry by repelling water molecules. But while the microscopic holes in the membrane are not large enough to allow water through, they are large enough to allow sweat and heat, in the form of air or vapor, to pass through so your feet can breath.

Below, take a look at the highlights of our top winter boots: the Alpinestars New Land Gore-Tex, the Tour Master Solution 2.0 WP, the Sidi Adventure Rain, the Cortech Vice WP, and the Gaerne Black Rose.

Alpinestars New Land Gore-Tex

Alpinestars New Land boots are one of our top boot picks for high-mileage road warriors who don’t let cloudy skies change their commute plans. Thanks to a Gore-Tex waterproof and breathable membrane, you’ll find your feet completely dry in a downpour but also a lot less clammy and hot – even in the spring and summer months. At just over $200, these boots are a great value for durable, long-lasting protection with the Gore-Tex advantage. The New Lands are fully CE-certified to meet Personal Protective Equipment standards for motorcycling footwear. Click here to read more.

Alpinestars New Land Gore-Tex Boot

Tour Master Solution 2.0 WP

Tour Master’s Solution boots are all-time favorite footwear staples. The Solutions offer straightforward, weatherproof and road-resistant protection, a comfortable fit on and off the bike, and all for a price that is hard to beat. The Solution is available at Road Rider in both men’s and women’s versions. Click here to read more.

Tour Master Solution 2.0 WP

Sidi Adventure Rain

Just like adventure riders, Sidi’s Adventure Boots blend off-road know how with good looks and diligence on the street. The result is a heavy-duty, lugged boot with reinforced shin coverage, a hinged ankle and heel, Cam-Lock buckle closure, and all in a relatively lightweight and comfortable package. Click here to read more.

Wear the Cortech Vice WP Shoe all day – from your house, to the highway, through your busy schedule, and then back home again. You’ll show your best form every step of the way in style and comfort, and stay protected on your bike. Click here to read more.

 

Cortech Vice

Women’s Gaerne Black Rose

NEW! Alpinestars Missile Leather Pants

Posted on: September 22nd, 2014 by Road Rider MCA No Comments

IN STOCK NOW!

New for fall 2014, Alpinestars Missile Leather Pants feature some exciting improvements and better fit options for riders, and are a perfect option for fall, winter, and spring rides.

2014 has been a year of better fit than ever from Alpinestars, and the Missile pants are no exception. They feature larger textile stretch panels in key zones and larger panels of accordion-stitched leather above the knees for improved mobility and movement. Stretch panels are breathable and lightweight, and provide a more comfortable fit for different shapes, especially around the thighs and calves. The Missile pants also come in a standard length, as well as much-needed short and long lengths. A light, mesh, full-length liner provides a soft feel and is fully removable for easy washing.

Though the textile stretch panels do provide some airflow, the Missile pants are not perforated, so they’re ideal for fall through spring months. For summertime track days, consider the Alpinestars Track Pants, also available at Road Rider.

Alpinestars Missile Leather Pants

  • Constructed with full grain leather and a multi-panel construction with reinforced, multiple stitching for optimum tear resistance in the event of an impact
  • Removable CE‐approved GPR knee and shin protectors for class-leading safety.

  • Accordion leather stretch zones above the knee offer improved flexibility
  • Front snap button and hook waist closure for security, plus durable front zipper
  • Extensive stretch poly-fabric panels on the inside leg and crotch improve flex fit while reducing garment weight
  • Extended high rear waist construction provides greater overlap with the riding jacket to ensure maximum material coverage of the body at all times
  • Internal removable and washable mesh lining with stretch panel inserts work in conjunction with outer stretch zones for greater freedom of movement
  • Internally reinforced seat and knee area aids abrasion protection and helps prevent garment deformation as a result of high friction while sliding in an accident
  • Zippered calf expansion gusset for various lower leg sizes
  • Pre-curved leg construction helps prevent riding fatigue and aids performance fit
  • Waist circumference Velcro® and D-ring closure for secure and personalized closure
  • Waist connection zipper allows attachment to Alpinestars riding jackets
  • Reflective detailing on front and back for improved rider visibility.
  • Replaceable sport knee sliders for excellent impact and abrasion resistance

Options

NEW! Alpinestars Tech 5 Boots

Posted on: September 11th, 2014 by Road Rider MCA No Comments

IN STOCK NOW!

Brand new for fall of 2014, Alpinestars Tech 5 boots offer excellent value and a high level of comfort, safety, and performance. The new Tech 5s inherited some of the excellent improvements and upgrades introduced last year in Alpinestars’ revamped Tech 7s and Tech 10s. And for just $50 more than the entry-level Tech 3s, the Tech 5s make it well, well worth leaping to the next level and new generation of offroad boot from Alpinestars.

The Tech 5s offer some significant advantages over the more junior Tech 3s, and a big deal riders will love and appreciate is the new and improved buckle design. Alpinestars’ new buckle system is ‘self-cleaning’, meaning they’ll still open and close easily after a muddy moto. The buckles are sturdy, durable, and secure, but are also much easier to flick open than previous buckles. Of course, all the buckles can be easily replaced if they do happen to fail a few years down the line. To further extend the life of your boots, the Tech 5s feature a replaceable sole, and Alpinestars offers inexpensive repair and sole replacement services.

The new Tech 5s also have a beefier shin plate and lower profile toe area. A bio-mechanical hinge above the medial ankle and a large accordion flex zone at the Achilles enhances their very comfortable and flexible feel.

Alpinestars Tech 5 Boots

  • Upper constructed from abrasion-resistant microfiber with durable synthetic polymer on toe box
  • Main microfiber material is offers high levels of water resistance, durability, and improved weight-saving, and ensures consistent fit for long term usage, is easy to maintain and clean
  • Redesigned instep and Achilles accordion flex zones made from lightweight microfiber for superior comfort, control and support
  • Contoured advanced polymer core structure envelopes upper boot for structural integrity and abrasion resistance while allowing excellent levels of controlled flex
  • Anatomically profiled, high modulus polymer shin plate for superior impact and abrasion resistance
  • Medial-facing pivot system links lower and upper parts of the boot and gives front and rear flexibility and structural support
  • Both the inward-facing upper and lower panels are constructed from specifically formulated polymer with grip sculpture patterning for maximum contact with bike and improved abrasion resistance
  • Innovative buckle closure system incorporates polymer and fiberglass buckle arms and high-impact aluminum bridge closures for durability and weight-saving
  • The TPU buckle straps are ergonomically profiled to promote high levels of front flexion
  • Innovative one-piece TPU injected dual compound foot shell is reinforced by a metal shank inside and toe reinforcement co-injected in harder compound
