New DRIRIDER Adventure boot.



On test in the New England High Country
Roll into the parking lot at any of your favourite bike stops and do a quick survey of riding gear. Who’s wearing what? Boots, jackets, gloves et al. I’m putting $50 on the bench right now that of the dozens of riders and pillions mingling around with their steaming lattes, more than half are sporting a piece of DriRider kit. In fact, I’ll go further and assert that many will be DriRider from head to toe.

There’s a good reason for this. For 35 years, DRIRIDER has protected Aussie riders with such high-quality apparel and accessories as thermals, boots, gloves, luggage and (since 2015) helmets. Designed specifically for our weather conditions and made for a true Australian fit (he says looking at his waistline).

Our latest piece of test kit is the brand new for 2019 Adventure C1 boot. Straight out of the box they look on the money and fit like a glove, secured by three, easily adjustable, quick-release fasteners and Velcro. I like the way they immediately feel safe and confident. Inside is a replaceable antibacterial liner, breathable with reinforced heel and toe area plus an ankle protector to EU standard (CE EN13634).

Mid-cut C2 in brown
The exterior is full grain leather with water-repellent suede upper with tough-as-nails moulded shin plate protection. You can bet they are water-, mud- and cow shit-proof too.

The same essential style is also available in a mid-cut (C2), with both also coming in brown if that’s your thing.

You’ll find them at your favourite gear outlet at an RRP of $299 for the full height or $249 for the middie.
