The Gaerne SG10 is arguably dollar for dollar the best motocross boot on the market today due to the innovative features Gaerne packed in. It all starts with the technology to make safe even safer so Gaerne developed the "Razor Back Pivot System" for the SG10 boots that gives superior protection for the ankle. The Razorback system gives great side-to-side and front-to-back mobility without restricting movement. Polyurethane construction with the Razorback system along with the protection on the inside, toe, and outside of the SG10 boots provides excellent impact resistance without adding weight. Leather is a must when developing a high end boot, but Gaerne took it a step further with the SG10 boots and used Italian hand-selected full-grain leather to provide easy break-in and quality protection. Gaerne's "Grip Guard" inner panel is incorporated into the Razorback system that creates a high friction contact point between you and your bike for quality control while protecting against heat and abrasion. A supercross shank gives the SG10 boots a rigid platform that takes any high impact racing or just riding can through at it. Gaining control and feel through the foot pegs is high priority and Gaerne installed a dual compound sole on the SG10 boots to accomplish that. The buckles of the SG10 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. Inside the SG10 boot is like a 5 star resort with the memory cell polyurethane foam liner surrounding your feet with the addition of Bio-foam for a custom like fit. Even the foot bed found in the SG10 boots plays a part in the exceptional comfort. Gaerne incorporated a shock absorbing material to keep you comfy.
"i have been wearing these for 3 years now, no complaints. comfortable through the ankle and solid nimble feeling on the pegs. may look into the sg 12 next they are supposed to be just a better updated version of the 10"
Pro Taper grips are some of the most widely used grips in professional motocross because of the quality grips they offer. The Pro Taper Pillow Top grips are no exception. Pro Taper Pillow Top Grips are covered in small square cushions (pillows) which give the riders hands extra support and comfort. Made of a custom Kraton rubber compound which provides a super tacky feel and great glove traction. The thickness of the grips provides excellent vibration dampening which will aid in the resistance of arm pump and hand fatigue. Fit any standard or oversized handlebars for motorcycles and ATVs with a twist throttle application.
"if you prefer aggressive grip and realize it comes at the cost of durability you'll love these, i like that they are a little fatter then a traditional grip because i have big hands if you have little hands you may want to look at the pillow top lite instead"

Shoei VFX-W Helmet - Malice
Shoei Safety Helmet Corporation prides itself in producing the best helmets that technology will allow, and never before has that been more evident than with the all-new VFX-W. The absolute pinnacle of all off-road helmets, the VFX-W is the result of countless hours of conceptualization, R&D, and testing with the most hard-nosed critics of all, our professional racing team. Drenched with state of the art new features, no stone was left unturned during its development. With safety, performance, comfort, and styling all critical factors, the VFX-W is perfect in every detail, as it ushers in the future of helmet technology with the type of quality that only Shoei is known for. AIM+ Shell Construction Shoei's proprietary AIM+ technology. This process combines fiberglass with organic fibers that are so strong that they can only be cut with a laser. The end result is a stronger, lighter shell that will absorb and distribute the force of an impact safely and efficiently. Dual-Layer EPS Liner Dual layer liner yields enhanced impact absorption by adjusting thickness and density in key areas. Inner liner features air channels for efficient cooling. Impact-absorbing EPS liner throughout the entire chin bar. V-430 "Sleek" Visor Developed by Shoei's sponsored riders. Lengthened for additional protection from sun and roost. Adjustment slot lengthened for greater versatility. Plastic hardware is utilized for easier visor breakaway during impact. Includes a matte black strip to reduce glare. 3D Max-Dry Liner System Polyurethane foam pads are three dimensionally formed for a perfect fit. Proprietary synthetic fiber absorbs and exhausts sweat 2X faster than conventional nylon. Liner is removable, adjustable, and washable. Emergency Quick Release System (EQRS) Mechanical tabs disengage cheek pads for easy removal by emergency medical personnel. Helmet can be removed with minimum load to rider in emergency situations. Ventilation System Improved air intakes are located in mouthpiece, forehead, and through scoops directing air into EPS liner. Seven exhaust ports dispel hot air from the rear of the helmet. Vent openings are covered by wire mesh to prevent dirt from entering liner. "Sleek" Mouthpiece Wire mesh screen helps prevent roost from entering the mouthpiece. A strip of AIM+ shell material reinforces mesh screen and helps to reduce chances of larger intrusions. Sleek mouthpiece directs cooling air through a removable and washable foam filter. 5-Year Warranty 5-Year Warranty From Purchase Date. 7-Year Warranty From Helmet Manufacture Date. Whichever comes first.
