The consolidated partnership between TCX and WL GORE is further strengthened by the introduction – as a world-wide first in the motorcycling industry – of the GORE-TEX SURROUND technology, up until now solely used to produce outdoor footwear or dedicated to urban use. Thanks to the recognized specialization in the sector and its propensity to develop products that are increasingly at the cutting edge, TCX becomes the ideal partner for WL GORE in the definition of this revolutionary project.
This is how the new CLIMA GORE-TEX SURROUND came to be, where the principal innovative trait entails the structure of the sole. The latter is made with a rubber tread featuring a non-slip design, which is bonded to a grey rubber midsole that incorporates a PP footbed for guaranteed transversal rigidity. This midsole stands out for the presence of a special ventilation grille capable of channelling all moisture and heat towards the holes on the sides. The exclusive sole construction works in combination with the breathable and wear-resistant CORDURA upper, and with the GORE-TEX Extended Comfort membrane for guaranteed all-round climate comfort. Feet stay dry and comfortable from spring to autumn, as confirmed by specific tests conducted on the product in a climate range of between 5 and 35 degrees.
The boot design is distinguished by the presence of micro injections which give it movement and character, featuring a seamless structure. The internal panel is made of microfibre, while comfort and flexibility of fit are enhanced by padded front and rear folds. Closure is quick and safe thanks to an elastic zip, concealed by a discreet Velcro band. This footwear model is reinforced in all sensitive areas (malleolus, shin plate, toe and heel counter) and is fitted with a PU shift pad.
The boot is CE Certified according to EN 13634 regulations.
GORE-TEX footwear engineered with SURROUND product technology offer 360 degree climate comfort. They are highly breathable all-around without compromising on durable waterproof protection. Your feet stay dry and comfortable even at warmer conditions. Moisture and heat are not only conducted via the upper of the boot, but also downwards through the GORE-TEX laminate into a ventilation grid. From there they can escape through large side sole openings.
