Exploring the Earth doesn't necessarily have to cost it, as the latest addition to the Weise motorcycle rider clothing range proves this.
Designed to handle the unpredictable conditions that any two-wheeled journey - long or short - can bring, the new Ventoux motorcycle boots from Weise are the perfect addition to any touring and adventure rider's kit cupboard, yet are firmly in the budget boot price bracket at just $139.99 (SRP).
Comfort is key for long days in the saddle and it certainly hasn't been sacrificed on the Ventoux. Named after the famous mountain stage of the Tour de France, Ventoux boots have a tough but supple full-grain leather construction, and flex panels at the front and rear of the ankle allow for easy movement both on and off the bike.
An elasticated calf section allows leathers or jeans to be tucked into the top and a leather pad is also included at the "shift zone" to help alleviate pressure pains from continuous gear changing.
Protection from unpredictable weather is also crucial for a long distance boot, so the Ventoux features a Dintex waterproof and breathable lining, to help keep the wearer dry and comfortable, in even the most changeable of conditions and temperatures.
Velcro closure and an adjustable securing buckle at the bridge allow enough adjustment for the use of thermal socks during colder days. The side closure and buckle ensure a snug and secure fit.
Weise Ventoux boots are available in UK sizes 6½ - 12 (EU 40-47) in black at the suggested retail price of $139.99.
All Weise products are covered by a two-year, no-quibble warranty for peace of mind. For information on the complete 2011 Weise range of rider apparel and accessories call 0117 9719200 or visit weise-clothing.co.uk.
