Since its product launch last October, the Bates Footwear Powersports Line has had a unique combination of materials and technology incorporated into the design and development of the boots, and the result is a motorcycle boot that is just as comfortable off the bike as it is protective on the bike.

One such material is XRD Extreme Impact Protection from Poron. What makes the XRD foam unique is its ability to react to stress or impact. At rest, the foam is soft and flexible to the touch, but upon impact hardens into a protective shell and dissipates impact force. XRD is shown to absorb up to 90% of energy at high speed impact, and is being applied to a wide variety of products in many industries. Learn more about Poron at www.xrd.tech.

This material is incorporated into the ankle areas of each of the Bates Powersports boots, allowing for comfort and flexibility while walking or riding and yet also providing impact protection to a critical area. Rider protection is supplemented with abrasion-resistant leather and nylon outer construction, and molded TPU heels. The result is a line of boots that are flexible and comfortable enough to wear for long hours on and off the bike, while also providing a degree of rigidity and impact protection.
