Piloti debuts Moto 800 Motorcycle Boots

Motorcycle Boots

Throughout its ten year history, Piloti has pushed the envelope of automotive footwear. Its line of Touring and Race Professional footwear is the benchmark for driving shoes the world over, worn by everyone from casual race fans to professional racers at some of the most prestigious races in the world.

From the beginning, Piloti has advanced the technology of footwear – such as its Patented Roll Control spherical heel for cushioning of the heel bone while driving, athletic construction and unique "Toe Spring" which aid in all-day comfort in the car and on your feet, and a reinforced Lateral Side of the right shoe for easy heel-toe downshifting.

While Piloti has continually advanced automotive footwear and design, it has always done so with an eye on the history of motorsports. With a similar perspective, the company has pressed ahead and is proud to start the next chapter of the company’s history by introducing the Moto 800 line of motorcycle riding boots. Named for the displacement in cc’s of Moto GP motorcycles, the Moto 800 applies Piloti’s line of thinking, technology, and style to motorcycles.

The Moto 800 was designed and developed as a direct result of customer requests at the Moto GP event at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Customers wanted a riding boot that was strong enough for use while riding, but with the comfort and style to be worn all day. The Moto 800 is the first riding boot that can be used not only on the ride, but at the destination.

The Moto 800 features all-leather construction, with the demands and abuse of riding incorporated from the toe to the heel. Piloti utilizes Tec-Tuff leather in the toe, providing increased wear protection on each boot while maintaining flexibility.

Next, Piloti incorporated a unique self adjusting mid-foot spat that covers the laces to prevent entanglement and keep the elements out. The Moto 800 also features a new bottom unit incorporating Piloti’s patented dual-density Roll Control heel, which offers unparalleled support and cushioning with the addition of a sculpted arch area to fit the pegs of your motorcycle to allow ease of shifting and enhanced rider control.

In short, the Moto 800 is the most versatile riding boot ever created – able to be worn all day, on the bike, and into the office, home, or restaurant. The Moto 800 has already earned accolades, with an Editor’s Choice Award for Innovation from Popular Mechanics at the 2008 SEMA Show. The Piloti Moto 800 is now available, in five colorways, ready to buy direct from www.piloti.com.
