Legendary for their design and renowned for their durability, the Crossfire boots from Sidi are the gold standard for off-road riding – and how could they be anything else? Handcrafted Italian quality with the style to match, the Sidi Crossfire boots have a tried-and-true reputation. The Sidi Crossfire 3 SRS boots serve that reputation well. Completely redesigned from head to toe, the boots highlight Sidi’s unique ability to pair innovation with tradition. Many of the features that made the Crossfire 2 SRS boots so popular can be found in the 3s, just carefully refined with an emphasis on protection, fitment, comfort, and convenience for the everyday rider, weekend warrior, and everyone else in between.
Ankle pivot system
Rigid, shock resistant heel
Hard TPU and protective plastic
A major protective component of the Crossfire 3 SRS boots is their all-new ankle pivot system. Featuring a "hyperextension block," the technology prevents hyperextension of the foot and ankle, limiting rider’s risk of injury and instilling a sense of safety. The reformed heel is noteworthy as well, boasting a design that keeps the foot planted in the boot and resistant to twisting. These notable features, along with the other protective systems in the boot, are all shrouded in hard TPU and protective plastic for an extra layer of insurance.
Dual Flex System
One feature that continues to distinguish Sidi Crossfire boots from their competitors is their non-bootie design. Where other premium boots choose to insert a bootie, Sidi opts out, giving their boots a slimmer, more responsive fit and feel. Rather than have a bootie that could inhibit shifting and build up heat in the boot, Sidi trusts their Technomicro material on the interior to handle things on its own. The composite microfiber material is made from strands finer than silk, yet is as tough as natural leather. This makes the interior water resistant, abrasion resistant, and incredibly lightweight and flexible for optimal fit.
With even more focus on flexibility, the Crossfire 3 SRS boots also have an independent buckling system. Each buckle has one fixed point (by a screw) that allows for easy closure and adaptability to varying positions on the bike. The Dual Flex System works with four of these straps to ensure the most personal fit, regardless of rider size or gear. And, although these systems offer flexibility, they all contain hard stops to limit any hyperflexion and hyperextension.
Removable and replaceable buckles, straps, plates, and more
The hallmark of the Sidi Crossfire 3 SRS boots is, of course, the SRS – sole replacement system. With their new Dovetail anti-skid rubber sole, the reinforced arch is anchored by four bolts, secure and completely replaceable. Because the arch area wears much more often and quicker than the toe and heel areas, the latter two are fixed in the boot. Though they cannot be removed, the heel and toe were both constructed for endurance and durability, so replacement would be unlikely.
The sole isn’t the only thing that can be replaced, however. Almost the entire boot is made to be removable. Where components could’ve been stitched, Sidi decided to bolt, creating the ultimate bolt-on boot. Every cam-lock buckle can be replaced, along with the central strap system, shin plate, and boot leg. Everything that was bolted on can be screwed off, a convenience that adds years to the reliable Sidi chassis.
Cambrelle® lining in the foot area, Teflon mesh throughout
Perhaps the best thing about these boots is that none of the safety features, fitment systems, or replaceable components come at the cost of comfort. Along with the moisture resistant Technomicro material, Sidi has also incorporated Cambrelle® and Teflon throughout the interior of the boot. The Cambrelle® and Teflon work to prevent moisture buildup and the onset of mold by being moisture-wicking and quick-drying.

Replaceable, sleek, micro adjustable cam lock buckle system with memory retention nylon straps.
All buckles move independently of each other and have just one fixed point (by a screw). This allows an easy closure and the buckles can adapt to the rider’s position as they pivot on the mounting screw as the rider changes position on the bike.
The complete central strap system can be easily replaced.
Lined with anti-abrasion Cambrelle® in the foot area for comfort, the upper is lined with Teflon mesh which prevents complete absorption of water and sweat. These materials will not retain water or sweat on the inside of the boot. The boot will dry quickly and the treatment also prevents the onset of mold.
All bolt-on parts are replaceable.
The boot leg is fully assembled with screws, is stitch-free and entirely replaceable.
Sidi has upgraded the entire SRS sole system on the Crossfire 3 SRS boot. New sole "boat" features a more cupped and thicker design so the rider’s foot rests deeper into the sole system. This change gives more engagement between the boots upper and sole in manufacturing which will extend the boots lifespan. This change also creates a firmer sole than any other Crossfire boot.
Replaceable by hand tools, the new Dovetail SRS anti-skid rubber sole covers the arch area of the sole.
Toe and heel areas on the new Dovetail SRS sole are now a permanent part of the Crossfire 3 SRS.
