    Want to make an excellent first impression and be the big hit to other riders? Then complete your MX race gear with the Gaerne Motocross Boots. Gaerne Motocross Boots are known for their comfortable feel and great fit, making sure that you are getting the support that you need to your foot and ankle. Not only do the Gaerne Boots offer great grip so your feet don’t slip while riding, but they can also be adjusted to accommodate a bigger leg or knee brace. With just the easy removal of 3 screws you’ve got a boot that’s perfect for all riders and gives you a natural feel.
  • Features the new revolutionary Dual Stage Pivot System. The first pivot is attached to the "Razorback" providing a rigid component that offers a strong lateral support while a glide-plate keeps the upper in a firm and upright position. The second pivot is fixed on a sliding glide that allows the riders foot to feel natural while on the peg in a shifting or breaking position.
  • Inner side of the boot features an all new rubber Grip Guard. This helps you feel the exceptional grip of the bike and offers heat resistant padding against your inner leg.
  • Thermoplastic shin plate is anatomically shaped for a perfect fit. It also accommodates the rider by allowing a wider opening for a larger leg or knee-brace.
  • The SG-12 Buckle System utilizes four lightweight alloy buckles that attach to an adjustable strap, providing an easy-in and easy-out non failure system.
  • Boot is constructed of an all new Swiss breathable fabric called Acronos. It allows the gaiter to be extremely stretchy but hold the perfect shape, keeping the sand and debris out.
  • The interior lining is made up of the "Gaerne Memory Cell Foam", known for the most comfortable feel and fit.
  • The new Heel Cup absorbs shock in case of a rear compression.
  • Toe-Box features a slimmer shape design in the toe area. It is wrapped by a new lighter plastic material providing more comfort and a better feel of the shift lever and the bikes controls.
  • Toe-Cap has been redesigned and reinforced giving it a new "tougher" look.
  • The Sg-12 Sole is made up of the Gaerne "Dual Composite" anti-shock rubber, but has a whole new look.
  • An all new foot-bed has been designed and molded to correctly support the foot. A new shock absorbing material has been used for the rear of the foot-bed and the front portion has been designed to allow the foot to vent.

Comments On Apr 26, 2014:These boots are quality. They are heavy and the toe box is a lot fatter than I'm used too, which makes shifting a bit harder for me. I'm getting used to them though.

One Word, Amazing!

Comments On Mar 21, 2014:The second you slip these bad boys on, you'll know what everyone here is talking about.
Feel amazing right off the bat, almost no break in. Ridiculously comfortable, yet secure and safe feeling. Would buy again in a heart beat.

Not as good as I hoped

Comments On Feb 20, 2013:Based on others' reviews I had hoped these boot would get 5 stars but after having my feet in these for about 10 hours worth of riding they can only get 4, because they are just not as comfortable as I expected. WHen the first go on they're pretty good but after 2 hours of riding there are pressure point at the lowest buckle and at the ankle bones that are all but unmanageable. You have to get out of them for at least a half hour break! I didn't have this issue with A Stars Tech 3 or 7. The support, protection and feel of these boots is quite good and the buckles are awesomely easy. I'm still hoping that they break in so the I can wear them for extended riding, but time will tell.

Additional Comments On Mar 09, 2014:More than a year in and the pressure point on my ankle remains. Everything else out the boot is great but the ankle problem makes them too painful to wear. Bummer.

Extremely tight ankle

Comments On Feb 28, 2014:These boots are very high quality, the construction rivals the best, and they offer more protection than I have ever seen in a motocross boot. They fit my foot very well, and the sole is very comfy. However, I have to return them for one unforgivable flaw. The ankle is so extremely tight I can't even get my wrist in there, and after waking around my house a bit my ankles feel bruised. I do have a pretty bulbous ankle bone, but I had no pressure whatsoever from my astar tech 3s, or any other boot I've tried. I wish these would have worked for my feet because they are beautiful boots, but as it is I am very disappointed.

So far, absolutely amazing.

Comments On Feb 26, 2014:Just got these bad boys from the UPS man today. Haven't ridden in them yet but been wearing them all day around the house and into town, I'm sure people at the gas station wondered about my choice of shoes! But so far these are night and day different than my Alpinestar Tech 8's. Those things felt like concrete boxes around my feet compared to these SG-12's! Doesn't seem like any break-in is required, foot bed is super comfy, and lots of protection! Will try and post update after this weekend when I do my first off road hare scramble in them, supposed to be a high of 30 degrees and 80% chance of snow so should be fun!

Comments On Feb 13, 2014:Got these for a christmas present from my wife , took the time at a big local bike shop to try them all on only expecting to pay up to three hundred for a set of boots,¦ when i put these on i was like WOW !!!! didn"t have a issue at putting out the extra shekels for these babies. Just note that the left toe is raised up and you will need to bring your shifter up a notch, on one of my bikes i had to nearly destroy the shift lever to get it past the clutch cover. then found a different model shifter that fit perfect. they will let water in when blasting through creeks but invest in a good set of boot driers from Cabelas of 45.00 money well spent

Comfortable is all you need to know.

Comments On Jan 10, 2014:Left my Tech 8 for these and WOW what a difference it made. These are so comfortable and it feels like your wearing slippers. I will buy another pair when its time.

SG 12

Comments On Jan 03, 2014:This is really comfy boot with good support, a little heavier than my old Fox boots. I would suggest removing the screws that hold the hinge together in the ankle area and applying thread locker. I lost the the screw and metal filler piece after 3 rides, and Gaerne doesnt reply to emails. Probably not a big deal, but for a 500 dollar boot you would think the screws wouldn't fall out.

Great Fit, Great Protection, Quick Break-in Time

Comments On Mar 02, 2013:You get what you paid for, and the SG-12s boots are the perfect example. they fit just perfectly (bought A-Stars first and returned them because of the fit - not the SGs) and were broken in within a few hours as the feel has not changed much since. they have excellent protection and have saved my feet from some significant hits in roots and rocks. they did squeek for a little bit but the noise has since gone away - broken in period i assume. I have owned these for 8 months and I am considering buying a second pair as a backup when I ride in wet conditions and need a pair for a second day ride. It is a must buy product.

Additional Comments On Dec 31, 2013:bought a 2nd pair after i left the other pair in South America. the 2nd pair works just as the first one. it fits without a problem with the Asterisk knee braces as well. i tried teh SIDI Xfire2 but they would NOT work with the knee braces, thus, i went back to the known SG 12s and worked perfectly. they do feel like wearing a shoe and squeeke some but i care more about the safety and feel of the boot than anything else.
