Details

    The Gaerne SG-12 Boot is the flagship in Gaerne's offroad lineup, sporting some of the best protection available and a race-winning design that's proven itself time and again by pros and amateurs everywhere.

    Design details of the SG-12 begin with an anatomically designed shin plate that is adjustable for larger calves and knee braces. The larger opening is sealed by a stretchable Acronos fabric gaiter for a tight barrier against water and debris. A large layout of impact-resistant TPU runs around the boot and connects with the "Razorback" support strut that extends up the rear of the boot.

    This "Razorback" strut is the backbone of the SG-12’s dual-pivoting glide plate design, giving you excellent range of motion with joints that glide and shift instead of simply rotate. This keeps your ankle in its natural orientation while bending, making the boot move according to your foot, not the other way around.

    The medial side of the boot is covered by the full-length grip guard that supplies huge amounts of traction while still resisting heat coming off your bike. Wrap the SG12 up with a solid set of alloy buckles and a memory cell foam lining, and you’ve got serious protection with a comfortable, locked-in feel that's unique to your foot.

    The Dual Stage Pivot System is a revolutionary new system exclusive to Gaerne. The first pivot is attached to the "Wishbone" and provides 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 situation; however, it will "bottom out" and absorb shock in the case of over-jumping a jump or in the case of unwanted compression.

    Comfort
  • Stretchable Acronos fabric gaiter.
  • Shock absorbing heel cup.
  • Adjustable size opening shin-plate.
  • Set of four robust alloy buckles.
  • Anti-shock, dual-compound sole.
  • Memory cell foam inner-lining.
  • Removable dual-density insole.
  • High wear components are replaceable.
  • Low profile stitched sole.

    Protection
  • Supportive "Razorback" strut.
  • Full-length, heat-resistant grip guard.
  • Dual-pivoting glide plate hinge system.
  • Redesigned stainless toe cap.
  • Low profile reinforced toe box.
  • Supercross Shank: This is the best shank money can buy-lighter, stronger.

SG-12
The boots are great. The only issue I have found so far is the strap at ankle height sticks out a little on the bike side of the boot. Not being used to this I have fallen over a few times when that gets stuck on my peg. I am coming out of A* tech 10s which were completely flat on the inside. This is just a learning curve, but one that can be frustrating.

Gaerne SG-12 boots
I had to order these to try them on because no one in my big city stocks these. I thought after reading rave reviews these would be amazing but they are far from it. The plastics seem cheap and flimsy, the straps keep coming out of adjustment, there is no functional hyperextention protection for the ankles and on top of that the ankle areas are narrow and crush my ankles, that's a deal breaker for me. Also they are way over priced for what they are. They fit slighty big and the toe box is pretty tall. Probably would be annoying to shift with. I'll be sending these back for sure.

Very Satisfied! Absolutely Recommend!
If you are looking for a comfortable boot, look no further. These things really are the best kicks around. I did have an issue with sizing, I normally wear 11.5, ordered the 11s and I was swimming in them. Believe it or not, the 10s fit fantastically.

Riding in them felt even better than just slipping them on. Max support, it almost felt like I was putting less effort into standing on the bike. Tons of flex in the up and down movements of the ankle to allow for shifting and braking.

One tip I have, if you are used to a rounded toe without the lip, get ready to re adjust because I catch my toe under the brake lever a lot. Getting better but its something to watch out for. I wouldn't let it stop you from getting these boots.

This is a true 5 star rating, I'm beyond satisfied with the boots and Rocky Mountain for quickly replacing the 11s and 10s!

How is sizing with the boot ? I wear a 9.5 usually and don't know whether to order a 9 or a 10
ROGER W on Oct 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The sizing of the boot is pretty true to size. I would always order up rather than down because you can always wear a thicker sock to take up some of the difference if needed.
How does this boot compare to the sidi? I own the sidi boots and am happy, but these look to be a great deal.
Matthew J on Oct 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Had Sidi's they were great. I switched to SG12's in 2009 and rode 100's of hours and 6 seasons. I did wear out the original sole as well as two replacement soles. The uppers held up unbelievably well and still felt safe after all that use. I puchased another pair of sg12's and they are even better with the now lower toe box. I do notice that the toe plastic is wearing quickly from the shifter on the new boot though. You really can't go wrong with either boot but I plan to stick with sg12's
i go back and forth bw 10 and 10.5 shoe size i think bc of wide feet. if i move up to size 11 would i be to big even with a sock?
logan b on Jun 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I wear 10.5 street shoes without fail. I’ve been using the size 10 gaerne SG 12s, two sets so far. The toe box has room to fit, and personally I would rather a little snug than too big.
Dose the 2016 sg12 have the up dated toe box?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure what you mean about "updated toe box" but I can tell you that the toe box on these boots are generally very roomy. I had quite a bit of space to move around in mine. It is very padded and comfortable on the inside as well. It has the metal toe cap and ultra-hard plastic on the top and around the toe. I hope this answers your quesiton!
Is the Black/hi Vis boot their 2016 model? Or was it the 2015 Limited Edition?
Matt M on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mine look exactly like the photo (black and white...) hth.....
What is the waterproofing like on these?
Brock N on Mar 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The boots hold up fairly well through water. I bought my boots in 2015 and I am still using them to this day. The boots work fantastic, I really have not had any problems with these boots, the only time they didn't really hold up all that well was when I completely dunked the boots under water while I was riding. Of course then they didn't hold up all that great, but that will happen with any boot if you do that to it. After they dried they work like they were still new. Overall these boots are awesome.
What's better the gaerne sg12 or the A-star tech 10?
Nick w on Oct 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The 12s are a little taller on the toe than the 10s but this is a non-issue when in actual riding position. I have never had an issue with it. The 10s have a bootie that some absolutely hate but that never bothered me.

I can wear me 12s all day without a problem. I've forgotten that I've had them in for well over an hour after riding. No discomfort with any hard impacts of any sort. No rubbing, no blisters, nothing to speak of.

Just get them. If you aren't happy with them, you won't be happy with anything else.
How is the fit compared to regular shoes?
Marc M on Feb 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought my first pair a year ago. The sizing on their size 12 was perfect for my normal size 11-1/2 or 12 shoes. The ankle feels a little tight at the beginning, but that is also the great feature of these boots. It takes a ride or two to get used to it and I find it comfortable and reassuring. I've worn Tech 8's for many years, and thought I'd miss the booties: I don't.
I really love the Gaernes.
First Gaerne boots, always a sidi guy. I have a fat 11.5 foot. I wear the 12.5 sidis now but that leaves me no room for thicker winter socks. Do i go for the 12 or the 11 in Gaerne?, as i hear they run big
