RT-RACE PRO AIR is the apex of the TCX racing line, a model emerging from the combined input from world championship road racers and the R&D department. Every detail of the RT-RACE PRO AIR is devised for racetrack performance, with comfort, stability and protection for the ultimate in road racing function, and the safety levels guaranteed by TCX. It’s what makes the TCX RT-RACE PRO AIR the boot of choice for four-time AMA Superbike Champion Josh Hayes and MotoAmerica racers Jake Lewis, Sean Dylan Kelly, Bobby Fong and Alex Dumas of the Team Hammer/M4 ECSTAR Suzuki Team.
Already available in the white/blue/black and white/red/fluo yellow versions, the RT-RACE PRO AIR is also now presented in the sleek new black/grey/fluo yellow design.
The upper construction features contoured design elements with fluo yellow accents for a stylish, aggressive look. Made of high-wear-resistant microfiber, the upper features over-injected PU areas at the front of the boot for added protection, along with a dynamic look. RT-RACE PRO AIR boot structure features the Double Flex Control system, allowing flexibility and protection while riding. This intelligent hinging construction allows 14 degrees of front flex and 13 degrees of rear flex while limiting overextension of the ankle in order to protect against joint injuries.
The signature Fasten Fit Control internal lacing system draws the racers foot into the boot for the ideal precision fit for optimum comfort, and greater sensitivity to the controls for superior performance. A micro-adjustable quick-release aluminum buckle at the top ensures a snug fit over the shin, adaptable to various calf shapes. Breathable AIR TECH material lines the interior with various density padding in the ankle area for ultimate levels of comfort.
The sole is made by TCX in partnership with the MICHELIN research center. Inspired by the MICHELIN “Power Supersport Evo” tire, the Burnout sole features a tread with differentiated grip zones, designed for enhanced grip on the peg and greater resistance to wear and tear. The sole profile is fully integrated into the upper, and the heel features a tilt angle to ensure optimum contact with the peg.
The boot is CE Certified according to EN 13634 regulations.
