Dual Stage 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 glide-plate keeps the upper in a firm and upright position. The second pivot is fixed on a sliding glide that allows the riders foot to feel natural while on the peg in a shifting or braking situation - however it will "bottom out" and absorb shock in the case of over-jumping a jump or in the case of unwanted compression. • Grip Guard: On the inner side of the boot is the rubber "Grip Guard". You can feel the exceptional grip of the bike, as well as offering a heat resistant padding against your inner leg. Improved for abrasion resistance. • Front Plate/Shin Guard: This 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 system provides the rider "Easy in" and "Easy out" non-failure system. • Gaiter: Made of a Swiss breathable fabric called Acronos, the gaiter is extremely stretchy but has the perfect shape to keep the sand and debris out.
Interior Lining: On the inside you will find the famous "Gaerne Memory Cell Foam", known for the most comfortable feel and fit ride after ride. • Heel Cup: The new heel cup has been designed to absorb shock in the case of a rear compression. • TOE-Box: Updated slim tOE box for greater shifting and braking feel of the bike. • TOE-Cap: The tOE cap has been re-designed and reinforced to provide a new tougher look. • Sole: This sole is new in look, but still used the Gaerne Dual Composite anti-shock rubber that has made Gaerne soles famous around the world.
Insole: Inside the boot you will find a footbed which has been specially molded to correctly support the foot. In the rear portion of the footbed, a new shock absorbing material has been used. And in the front portion the construction has been made to allow the foot to vent.
