After Sidi released a photo of Andrea Dovizioso holding the Sidi Vortice hi-viz yellow/black boots they received so much positive feedback that they decided to release them in the US. There is no doubt that hi-viz motorcycle gear is growing in popularity, so it only makes sense to make the Sidi Vortice boots in the hi-viz yellow/black color combination available to everyone.
Who’s Andrea Dovizioso? Let me give you a brief history of his career. Dovizioso debuted in the 125 class race in 2001, then went on to seize the 125cc World Championship Title in 2004. Ever since Dovizioso has proved himself as a top racer. After a long career with Honda he is now teaming up with Yamaha in hopes of a new adventure, all while wearing Sidi boots.
Here is what Andrea Dovizioso had to say about the new Sidi Vortice boots, “I know about the quality and technical value of Sidi boots, and now I’m happy to get the chance to wear them in competition. My first impression is really good, because right away Vortice comes off as a high performance boot that nonetheless doesn’t sacrifice solutions studied to insure safety to the rider’s feet. The first tests of the season in Sepang will be important to fine tune the bike, but also to put some touches on my new Vortice boots. Boots are fundamental to a rider because they are a unifying fulcrum between man and motorcycle.”
Sidi Vortice Boots give riders the best protection money can buy and offers the patented Tecno VR adjustable calf system that can only be found in one other boot, the Sidi Vertigo. An adjustable Tecno Knob allows riders to evenly close and wrap the internal mono-filament line around the calf for a perfect fit. The shifter pad ensures that the plastic qualities will not change in high/low temperatures and provides a consistent feel due to the molded DuPont Techno-polymers.
Although the Vortice hi-viz yellow/black boots will not be available in the perforated air model, they do feature a closeable vent system on the toe and vents on the side of the foot. If you prefer the perforated air model then check out the Vortice Air boots available in black and white.
We believe the Sidi Vortice in hi-viz yellow/black will be the new ultimate sport-on road boots and will go fast. Make sure to check out the Vortice boots before they are gone and order yours today!
