Are you the kind of person who is always decked from head to toe in Italian riding apparel? Well, no reason to ditch that allegiance when you get the track, thanks to the new Dainese Torque D1 Air Race Boots. Or maybe you’re just a Valentino Rossi fan. Whatever it is, the Dainese Torque D1 Air race boot is one of the best in the business.
We’re saying that after putting in over 1000 kilometers on the road as well as a few kilometer on the track.
What makes the Dainese Torque D1 Air cool? Besides look that good, you mean? Well, how about D-Axial joints to prevent ankle-twist, active ventilation, magnesium toe sliders and a CE-Level 2 safety rating? Plus a calf-circumference adjustment for a custom fit and a rear entry, making it one of the easiest motorcycle boots to get in and out of.
It all sounds comfortable and it is. We’ve worn it all day long in hot weather as well as flat out on the track, and forgot it was there. The microfiber liner and D-stone fabric work together to wick moisture away and keep feet cool. And the snug fit makes it feel like an extension of your feet. That’s a good thing, as it leaves your mind free to concentrate on riding.
There is always something negative, right? Well, the price. Depending on where you buy the Dainese Torque D1 Air boots from, expect to pay upwards of 14,200 THB for this. Who is it for then? For someone who is serious about getting the most out of his motorcycle boots and goes corner carving every weekend. And, of course, for all you lucky guys who have easy access to a racetrack.
