100% synthetic racing lubricant with Double Ester-Technology for racing motorcycles with atmospheric or turbocharged engines, operating at very high temperature and high RPM. Able to compensate fuel dilution in the oil and maintains high film strength. Extra engine power up to 3%: Double Ester technology. Tribologic tests performed demonstrated low traction coefficient of chosen polymer and complex Esters. Low traction coefficient reduces engine internal friction and then increases power output. Engine protection: 0% shear loss on Bosch test ASTM D6278. Gearbox protection: shear resistance improved by 66% on KRL 20 hours tests (CEC L-45-A-99) - test originally set up for gearbox lubricants, 10 times more severe than Bosch test. Extra power at the rear wheel: Wet clutch engagement improvement. Quicker rev-ing, better engine response, maximum engine power. Running oil temperatures up to 365F. O.E.M. approvals: Above existing standards. Wet clutch compatibility checked on JASO T904 test. Reference team Alstare World SuperSport, National Moto Endurance, Suzuki World MX.
Ratchet closure buckle system provides a secure, custom fit every time. Leather chassis construction offers excellent flex and feel. Split-grain leather calf guard for abrasion and heat resistance. Contoured shin plate and ankle plate for impact and abrasion resistance. Bio-foam lined interior and insole provides superb comfort and cushioning. Welted rubber outsole with steel shank insert for maximum support.

Gaerne SG 12 Boots
The Gaerne SG 12 boots are in a class all their own with countless hours of research and development that lead to the innovation of the perfect boot. Gaerne has developed a unique double stage pivot system for the SG 12 boots. The first stage of the pivot system is between the lower and middle shell that runs on a traditional pivot point with the addition of a glide-plate. This design on the SG 12 boots provides rigid lateral support while keeping the upright position firm. The second pivot point is between the middle shell and upper shell that operate as a slide to offer natural forward movement. The front shin guard on the Gaerne SG 12 boots are not only constructed out of thermoplastic and anatomically shaped for comfort, they can also be adjusted to accommodate larger legs or knee-braces. Gaerne uses a heal cup on the SG 12 that provides shock absorption in the event of rear compression. The Gaerne SG 12 boots have a slimmed down toe-box that has been wrapped in a lighter but durable plastic material that transmits feedback through the controls easily. Gaerne came up with a new inner boot heat and protection plate that also offers superior grip. The grip guard is made from rubber to provide optimum feedback while maximizing protection. The buckles on the SG 12 boots follow the simple rule "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!" The aluminum buckles are durable and adjustable that function with ease. Gaerne hasn't forgotten about comfort, in fact the foot beds have also been redesigned on the SG 12 boots. These foot beds were made matching the natural shape of the foot which reduces fatigue. The heal of the SG 12 foot beds have a shock absorbing rubber while the front have increased ventilation. The Gaerne SG 12 boots continue to use their famous "Gaerne Memory Cell Foam" that feel like a custom fit boot for all day riding. Finding the best is what the SG 12 boots is all about and Gaerne didn't even short out the gaiters. The gaiters are made of a Swiss fabric called Acronos. This material is breathable and easily stretches to keep sand and debris out.
