Gaerne: SG-12 Boots

Introducing the all-new SG-12 from Gaerne. The best off-road motorcycle boot on the planet! The Gaerne SG-12 features a new “G” for an exciting first impression. Don’t think we stopped there, that is just the beginning. Check out the new features…

Dual Stage Pivot System: This revolutionary new system is patented, 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 breaking 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 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.

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 utilises four lightweight alloy buckles that attach to an adjustable strap. This is a tried and tested system that provides the rider easy in and easy out non-failure system. Keeping it simple!

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.

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. It also doubles as a nice place to showcase the new “G” logo.

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.

Toe cap: The all-new shape. The toecap has been re-designed and reinforced to provide a new tougher look.

Sole: For the SG-12 you will notice a new design. This sole is new in look, but still uses the Gaerne dual composite anti-shock rubber that has made Gaerne soles famous around the world.

Insole: Inside the boot you will find an all-new foot bed, which has been specially molded to correctly support the foot. In the rear portion of the foot-bed, a new shock absorbing material has been used, and in the front portion the construction has been made to allow the foot to vent.

Gaerne Supercross  Shank: This is the best shank money can buy: Lighter and stronger.
