Gaerne - 2010 SG-12 Boot

  • New look. For 2010 the Gaerne Sg-12 features a new "G" for an exciting first impression.
  • 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 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 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 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.
  • 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 for 2009, 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.

I have had lots of boots, but Gaerne SG12 is by far the best boot I have every worn!!!
It looks pretty nice. Every area that takes abuse is covered in a plastic/rubber type shield and textured for grip - the best design I've ever seen.
The adjustment system is excellent too. I' ve never had any problems with the buckles. The buckle straps move very easily. There are three available shin plate settings.
Seems that the Gaerne sole lasts forever. And the sole provides good feel on the pegs. It's very important.
The toe box isn't the slimmest on the market, but I think it's because of the memory foam. And it's memory foam is a real revolution – it's at the top of comfort. These boots feel broken-in like you have worn them for several years straight out of the box. No break in needed at all. The entire inside of the boot (coated in memory foam) conforms to the shape of your foot, ankle and leg for a custom made, and very cozy, feel and fit.
A couple of things you should know about them, besides I think that SG12 is one of the leaders of the market.
1. It's a heavy boot, (if you take it for enduro riding and you'll ride all day long), but it is excellent for motocross.
2. There is a little aluminum part – it's very easy to loose it. Some of my friends have already lost it.
3. If there's a part you need it's rather difficult to find it in Russia.
The Gaerne SG12 is a top-level boot, thanks to its exceptional comfort and high level of protection. And no doubt that it deserves its premium price.

Great fit, not as durable as i would lik

I have had 2 pairs of these the last 2 years. They seem to only last 1 years until they start falling apart.

Comments about Gaerne - 2010 SG-12 Boots:

Awesome Boots, far better buckle system than Alpinestars. clean up real nice and easy.
These boots could be lighter in my mind, not that you really notice the heaviness while riding, but carrying them around they defiantly feel heavier than other brands premium boot.
I wish these boots had booties for faster drying time.
Iv'e had around 150hrs on my boots, i take care of my stuff. Can't say any stitching ripped, leather cracking, or buckles breaking.
Quality product! worth the money.

            These ARE good boots,..but there's some issues with them; First, these boots have weird feeling "pads" on the inner ankle area that push hard on your ankle bones!!!(ouch!) Maybe after some 'brake-in' time the ankle area will start to loosen-up??(I hope..) Second, buy 1 size smaller because they do run big! The up side is the toe & foot area are very comfy, and there pretty light on your feet. I'm not really sure if there WORTH the money they cost, but time will tell....

              Boots are great. I have wore Tech 10's and they feel heavy and blocky. These are narrow at the toe for easy shifting narrow in height not width. They r broke in pretty much when you slide them on ur feet and they have superior ankle protection!

                The boots are excellent from the minute you wear them you would tell of the quality of fit, material used, support and protection provided.
                They instantly are broken in.I also think the quality is not just this model by a reflection of the high standard of Gaerne.
