  2. The Crossfire 3 SRS (Sole Replacement System) is a motocross-style boot in the upper echelons of style, comfort, and safety. For certain, they represent premium Italian footwear with plentiful features and extensive refinement, now in their third version. SIDI’s Crossfire series of boots have defined themselves in the crowded hoard of off-road motorcycle boots with a propensity for abuse and a utilitarian nature. They are a hard-wearing boot with a proven racing pedigree and the high-level protection needed for aggressive off-road adventure rides. ADVERTISEMENT I was excited to test the Crossfire 3 since the last generation was still in heavy rotation, and the new iteration is steeped with additional features. Updates include a redesigned dual flex ankle hinge system with hyperextension/hyperflexion stops, reshaped shock resistant heel, and a wider calf opening to accommodate knee braces & riders with thicker legs alike. Returning features that I especially appreciated on the previous model include the quick micro adjusting buckles, svelte non-booty design, and serviceability with nearly every part of the boot being replaceable. How They Performed The first gauge of performance with any pair of moto boots is how well they break-in, especially with MX-style boots that are notoriously rigid and cumbersome. I was pleased to find that the Crossfire 3s quickly became comfortable, even compared to more pliable adventure boots. I gambled on this when we departed on a multi-day trip, spanning several thousand miles after only wearing the boots for an hour or two around the house. By the end of day two, the new Crossfires felt like home and happily protected my legs for the remainder of the trip. Dakar and Baja legend Jimmy Lewis ripping it up in his SIDI Crossfire 3 moto boots. Throughout testing of these boots, they logged over 10,000 miles and saw just about every type of riding terrain, conditions, and weather imaginable. Despite their intended motocross purpose, this particular set was primarily used for off-road adventure travel and dirt bike forays. As previously stated, they were very comfortable from the get-go and offered peace of mind in all manner of riding. While they’ve been in service, rocks were punted, crashes were sustained, motorcycles were dropped on them, and they were regularly submerged in water. Besides minor bumps and bruises, my feet and lower legs remained unscathed. Sometimes toes were a bit sore or ankles were a little stiff the day following a ride, but all serious injuries were averted. After one lousy get-off that involved cartwheeling through tumbleweeds then slamming into a bank of river rock feet first, I walked away stunned but unscathed and I knew these boots had proved their worth. [embedded content] A key feature of the new SIDI Crossfire 3 is the Sole Replacement System (SRS) that allows for easy replacement of worn out soles with just a screwdriver. The boots come standard with smooth motocross style soles, but SIDI does offer more-aggressive enduro soles as well. I stuck with the stock treads and they proved adequate during testing, without any adverse effects on slick surfaces or when hiking around. SIDI’s method of not using an inner booty makes these boots feel very agile compared to similar moto boot models and is the key to their slim profile. Dexterity was noticeably better when walking, or operating controls than with previous generations, especially after the leather segments had worn to perfection. This pair of SIDI Crossfire 3s logged over 10,000 miles and saw just about every type of riding terrain, conditions, and weather imaginable. In mild and cold temperatures, these boots felt stellar and frigid toes were of no concern even with lightweight socks. However, warmer climates and high temperatures posed a challenge for these decidedly stuffy boots. It was one of the only areas where the Crossfire 3, much like their predecessors, functioned less than ideally. The Cambrelle liner, while comfortable, doesn’t disperse moisture as effectively as Gore-Tex and they were prone to developing an inhospitable tropical climate. To be fair, this has been our experience with most boots in this category — hard to avoid with this degree of defense. On the flip side of this coin, while not waterproof, they did an admirable job keeping moisture out (as they did keeping it in). Only when wholly submerged or exposed to persistent driving rain did my feet actually get wet. This made them a better all-around adventure boot than initially anticipated and for that reason they got much more use on our extended trips. Despite their weight and size, the Crossfires seemingly disappeared on my feet and were a non-issue on long days, even when those days included some hiking. It cannot be understated how form-fitting and personalized these boots felt with all of the micro adjustments available and high-end materials. The comfort of the Crossfires is second only to their first-rate protective qualities. They also aged well and did not require any significant maintenance or repairs during our extensive testing. The only parts on these boots that required regular attention were the hinges & pivot points that would whine incessantly if not treated with lubricant. Once the boots got wet again, this would all be for not, and you would have to start the process over or endure announcing your presence a half a mile in advance. Who Are They For? These boots are for anyone with serious off-road aspirations or those wishing to equip themselves with the highest level of protection available. Not well suited for tasks like commuting but ideal for someone who regularly tests the limit of their riding abilities in the dirt. Simply put they are just as well suited for a weekend warrior as they are for a professional racer. Our Verdict While the Crossfire 3s represent a significant investment, they also offer a seemingly endless lifespan, as every wear part is replaceable. SIDI went to great lengths to make this boot exceptionally tough and serviceable, deeming them worthy of the initial buy-in. As with all motocross-style boots, some degree of mobility and comfort is sacrificed when compared to less protective adventure boots, but this particular boot doesn’t sacrifice much in the comfort department. What We Liked High level of protection while sacrificing minimal mobility. Comfortable almost immediately even on excessively long days. Adjustability that allows for a custom fit feel even when wearing knee braces. Non-booty design that allows for a sleek profile and less girth. Versatility across many different types of riding. Serviceable with nearly every part of the boot being replaceable including the sole. What Could Be Improved A little more heat displacement in the lower regions of the boot. Full waterproofing would make this boot unstoppable! Noisy hinges and pivot points that require regular attention.

    Las' ca e bine ca facem rating Topicul nu trebuie inchis. Mai avem de postat poze si impresii dupa intrunire. Chestiunile legate de sedinta cred ca ar trebui discutate dincolo in discutia privata.

    Era mai bine daca-l aratai cu degetul direct pe Adi Bujie daca de el e vorba . Nu mai iesea tam-tam. Nici eu nu sunt de acord cu citatul de mai sus. Motociclismul e sport scump doar pt faptul ca iti trebuie echipament. In rest e la fel ca la masina ca si acolo bagi bani in reparatii. Iar cazarea nu are legatura nici cu doua nici cu patru roti.
  8. Italian billet accessory manufacturer Rizoma has released a line of billet products for Husqvarna’s love it or hate it Svartpilen 401. Unquestionably, the machine has a style all its own. And Rizoma thinks people will want to make changes to their bikes to personalize and improve the bike’s looks. A Rizoma clad Svartpilen 401. Photo credit: Rizoma Although these products will not improve your Svartpilen, they will definitely modify the look of your machine for a more personal touch. Rizoma’s Svartpilen 401 website shows more than 45 mostly billet items designed specifically for the Swedish brand’s unusual looking machine. Billet accessories from Rizoma. Photo credit: Rizoma Parts available range from simple bar ends to more complex to manufacture items like turn signals and footpegs. Machined parts are not cheap, and quality Rizoma products are no exception. Prices for billet items (not including adapters etc.) start at around €50 (~$56) and go up from there. But these are not cheap knockoff products, they are good looking enhancements for the Svartpilen 401 and other machines. Rizoma fender eliminator for the Svartpilen 401.

  16. Into The Wild Overland is a company that I’m guessing almost all of you have never heard of, myself included. They had a product on display at Overland Expo that might be of interest to some of you. I know a lot of riders love to set up base camp at a trailhead and go ride for days or weeks in one area coming back to camp nightly. A tent or hammock is obviously the cheapest way to do this, and then maybe sleeping out of the back of your truck somehow but if you are looking for a little more comfort, you might be thinking about a Sprinter Van or similar. The problem with those vans, if you aren’t on the road full time, is its an extra vehicle, more insurance, and related costs, has to be parked outside full time unless you have a big shop space, because, maybe, it doesn’t work with your 9-5 life…and fully kitted out new vans can be in the $100-150,000 range Into the Wild Overland had a couple of trailers on display, small enough to fit in your garage, light enough to be towed by just about anything. Fully kitted out, solar powered as a stand-alone vehicle with no need to plug into the grid. The difference between their trailer and others I saw is it is made to hold a motorcycle across the tongue, specifically designed to do so, not an afterthought, and not teeter-tottering on a trailer hitch. This IS NOT a paid post, or advertising, just something I saw over the weekend at the show and thought a number of you might have some interest in. I asked the owner, Matt to join advrider.com and put this in the vendor section and start a thread, as we are his target audience, that way you could ask any question you want or maybe just go to his website and get more details https://itwoverland.com/ Vezi sursa

  22. Nu mai este mult până când bike parcul Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis îşi deschide porţile spre public. În weekendul 7-9 iunie tinerii mtb-işti, dar şi familiile vor lua parte la marea deschidere. În acel weekend în Austria este şi „Ziua tatălui”, aşa că administratorii zonei au pregătit surprize pentru părinţi şi copii. Iată-l şi pe Jackson Goldstone, de doar 14 ani, cum îl învaţă câte ceva pe tatăl său, dându-se amândoi pe traseele din Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis.

  23. Intrunirea anuala 2019

    Ok, atunci iti multumesc pentru apreciere. Ba chiar asta am vrut, sa le bat obrazul tradatorilor si am mentionat ca m-am referit la cei care la inceputul discutiilor din acest an au sustinut vehement Calimanestiul ca locatie (subintelegandu-se prin Calimanesti de fapt complexul balnear Cozia cu bazinele lui termale) si dupa ce Silviu s-a zbatut, si-a sacrificat din timpul propriu, a cheltuit bani cu drumuri, telefoane, mesaje catre locatie, si-a consumat nervi si sanatate si-a pus gaj obrazul pentru rezervarea a 50 camere, cei care au dat tonul la exodul catre alte locatii, creand o stare de dezbinare, au fost exact unii dintre cei care au vrut intrunirea musai la Cozia. La inceputul discutiilor, cineva scria mesaje de genul, citez: "cine are bani vine cine nu nu!!!sa stea acasă!!!motociclismul este un sport scump!!!" si el a fost primul care a dezertat catre alta locatie. Bineinteles ca fiecare face ce doreste cu proprii bani si ii cheltuie unde vrea dar eu vorbesc aici despre atitudinea si respectul dintre noi. Si pentru mine conteaza 100 lei, dar suta de lei nu o voi pune niciodata mai presus decat respectul pentru colegi. p.s. departe de mine gandul ca tu ai fi asa cum ai spus si ai prinde mai greu.

    Nu mi-esti antipatic dar chiar ai gresit.De-a lungul timpului mi-ai parut cel mai echilibrat dintre toti. Poate d-aia reactia ta a parut foarte dura. Daca nu ai vrut sa faci pe nimeni tradator si nu ai batut obrazul strigand "RUSINE" ,poate ne explici ce ai vrut defapt.Unii suntem mai grei de cap si nu prindem toate subtilitatile.
  26. Intrunirea anuala 2019

    Ce mi-ai zis-o... m-ai facut praf... Ori nu ai inteles nimic, ceea ce nu cred ori iti sunt profund antipatic si simti mereu nevoia sa ma "pui la punct" indiferent ce si cum. Nu mai pierd timpul sa iti dau explicatii suplimentare ca sa intelegi ce am vrut sa spun pentru ca evident motivatia ta e cea de a doua si pentru asta mai bine ma ignori pur si simplu.
