Not all riders are created equal, nor are their boots, which is why Gaerne has invested 50+ years in creating boots that are not only comfortable, but supportive as well. For over five years, they have continuously updated the innovative SG-12 to bring riders the quality of Italian workmanship, coupled with thoughtful and on-trend designbecause Gaerne has created and set the trend from the very conception of motocross boots.
With the latest updates to the SG-12, Gaerne has fine-tuned their dual-stage pivot system, devising the first stage to provide strong lateral support at the Razorback, along with a glide plate to keep the boot upper in a firm and upright position, and the second stage of the pivot system, which is fixed on a sliding glide and allows for more natural foot position, but also acts as a shock absorber to reduce unwanted compression in the cases of over-jumping or bottoming out.
Dual Pivot System: This revolutionary new system is patented and exclusive to Gaerne and is certainly going to be a hit. The first pivot is attached to the "razorback". This provides a rigid component that offers a strong lateral support while a glideplate keeps the upper in a firm and upright position.
Gaiter: Made of a new Swiss breathable fabric called ACRONOS, the gaiter is extremely stretchy but has the perfect shape to keep the sand and debris out.
Toe Cap: All new shape. The toecap has been re-designed and reinforced to provide tougher performance.
Heel Cup: The new heel cup has been designed to absorb shock in the case of a rear compression.
Toe Box: This new design features a slimmer shape in the toe area for an improved feel of the shift lever and the bikes controls. The entire area is wrapped by a new plastic material which is lighter and provides more comfort and feel for the bike as well.
Front Plate (Shin Guard): This new thermoplastic shin plate is anatomically shaped for a perfect fit. By removing three screws, a rider can also make the opening wider to accommodate a bigger leg or knee-brace.
Buckle System: The SG-12 utilizes four lightweight alloy buckles that attach to an adjustable strap. This is a "tried and true" system that provides the rider "easy in" and "easy out" non-failure system. Keeping it simple!
Grip Guard: On the inner side of the boot is the all new rubber "grip guard". You can feel the exceptional grip of the bike, as well as offering a heat-resistant padding against your inner leg.
Gaerne has also created various features to give riders more supportive security during their rides, including heat-resistant inner grip guards and anatomically shaped thermoplastic shin guards, which are adjustable to create a wider opening for accommodating larger calves or knee braces. In addition to the adjustability of the shin plate, the adjustable buckle system is comprised of four lightweight alloy buckles, which allow for a tried and true, fail-safe, simple easy in-and-out action, as well as their contribution to the expansion capability of the boot upper. The SG-12 also features a dual-composite sole, which is new in look but still features the anti-shock rubber that has become famous as a component of Gaerne bootsand thats just the outside.
Inside the boot, beneath the Acronos gaiter, which is breathable and extremely stretchy, yet effectively shaped to keep sand and debris out, Gaernes memory cell foam lining adjusts to the shape of the riders foot to provide a comfortable feel and custom bond between individual riders and their boots, ride after ride. At the foot, a newly designed heel cup aids in shock absorption, in the case of rear compression during use, while the more streamlined toe box of the SG-12 allows for greater control of the shift lever and other bike controls. The specially molded foot bed insole is engineered with venting near the front of the foot, and conjunctive shock-absorption in the heel to further support the lower leg.
The SG-12 boot features on-trend colorways, ease of access, adjustability, flexion and mobility, as well as aero-styling, with structure everywhere it needs to be, ensuring the comfort and security a motocross rider needs, to focus less on gear and more on the ride. Inside-out, the SG-12 is a standard of comfort, support, quality, and craftsmanship that boots worldwide are judged against, and created in comparison to. Gaerne: lifes short, enjoy the ride.
