There might be no finer off-road boot than the Sidi Crossfire 2 SRS, which boasts superb design, riding versatility, and modular parts. And yet, the Italian company endeavors to improve upon that design, teasing this weekend the debut of the Sidi Crossfire 3 SRS.
I am not sure if the debut of an off-road boot needs to be drawn out over several teaser videos — I can hardly stand it when the same is applied for a new motorcycle launch — but we might forgive such a marketing scheme for such a worthy piece of kit.
To that end, the Sidi Crossfire 3 SRS continues the trend of the Italian brand, with replacement parts and pieces readily available for owners. This makes repairs from heavy spills an easy affair, it also makes the SRS line of boot highly adaptable for different types of riding.
This is because like its predecessor, the Sidi Crossfire 3 SRS has a variety of replacement soles available, which can be easily installed for riding motocross, enduro, adventure-touring, and supermoto.
In terms of what’s new with the Sidi Crossfire 3 SRS, the Italian brand is really doing itself a disservice with this video teaser campaign, because firm details are non-existent.
We imagine the Italian company is saving its news for the EICMA show in Milan, in mid-November. But as we can see in the video, the design of the Crossfire has evolved, and there seems to be a system in place for preventing the hyperextension of the ankle.
We’ll have to see what news we can dig-up on the Sidi Crossfire 3 SRS boots, but in the meantime, if we are really lucky, Sidi will have found a way to prevent the persistent squeaking that comes with every model they offer. If not, then we will have to continue with liberal applications of silicon spray.
