Acerbis believes the perfect boot for riding in motocross or enduro must be protective, lightweight and durable as well as offer freedom of movement and sensitivity. It also believes its new Whoop boots incorporate all these features, together with premium style and design.
The shin guards protect the front of the leg, while the heel area is protected by a moulded structure that absorbs shocks. The jointed cuff reduces lateral ankle flexing, ensuring mobility and sensitivity. The toe area design reduces the height between the sole and the shift lever. Fastening is managed by four aluminium levers with ample adjustment possibilities and a convenient unidirectional upper Velcro fastener, which allows perfect adherence of the gaiter to the leg simply by closing the upper lever.
The boot’s interior has a fabric 3D mesh padding, which promotes ventilation and air circulation. Inside is a rubber insert, resistant to high exhaust temperatures. The anatomical footbed is designed to reduce impacts during landings from jumps. The Acerbis anti-shock two-component sole is designed to withstand the wear and tear caused by the aggressive action of the bike’s foot pegs, offers protection from accidental impacts and is oil and petrol-resistant.
The Whoop boots are available in three colours: orange/black, black/white and grey/fluo yellow, in Euro sizes 39 to 47, for a SRP of £249.99.
