TCX Airtech Evo GTX boots: For beautiful summer storms?
Found on the AirTech Evo the general appearance and construction of road boots TCX, like the X-Five for example. The stem remains leather but it’s now of synthetic leather, more commonly called microfibre, notably on the points in contact with the bike (to wear) or the ground (falling). But the majority of the boots is plus size, assisted by Hoticle and provided by Gore-Tex Extended comfort Footwear membrane. Apparently very fine, she is responsible for ensuring tightness without transforming the boot in oven. Like their predecessors, they are lighter than full leather road boots; which is a definite advantage when you ask the bike and must trudge during the tourism sessions. For the falls, we find a thermoformed shell on the tibia, a Foothill to the heel and ankles protections. The AirTech are certified according to en 13634:2010 (complete record available on this page). Finally, TCX changed several details, ranging from the new padding around the ankle to the insole (removable) with a shock absorber. The boot is also a little less high, which corresponds to a demand from users of boots of tourism or urban.
Available in black only, the TCX AirTech Evo Gore-Tex suit both men and women since the sizes go from 36 to 48. Count € 229.99. A further increase in the rate then the previous model had already experienced an increase justified by compliance with the European standard on PPE (personal protective equipment).
Initially appreciated for its quality/price ratio, the TCX brand should ensure not to raise its rates as high-end, competition with the historical rival Alpinestars may not be favorable.
