View a quick review on the Fox Racing Comp 8 Motocross Boots
I’m Matt from Chaparral Motorsports here with the new 2015 Fox comp 8 motocross boot. Brand new this year to the Fox line up of motocross footwear is the comp 8. This is their mid-range boot and they actually inherited a lot of features from the Instinct, which is their top of the line boot. Features like a Duratac rubber sole. It has a stickier compound to it which gives you superior grip on the pegs and has a steel shank for extra support. Another great aspect to these boots are the buckles. These are Instinct style buckles which are like a ball and socket. They’re very easy to use with gloves on and they kept it simple by using only 3 straps. Surrounding the base, you’ll notice the injection molded plastic comes up and creates a protective barrier so that your buckles don’t get ripped off during a race. There’s quite a bit of protection on these guys. There’s injected molded plastic in the toe box and on the left side it’s textured for more grip on the shifter. Then it continues on to the shin plate, on the calf and wraps around to the medial side of the boot giving you 360 degrees of protection. Towards the top there’s a rubber heat guard and when you feel it, it has a lot of grip to it. Resulting in more control of the bike. Another thing to notice on the medial side is how flat and sleek it is. This allows you to have more contact with the motorcycle and less chances of them getting hung up. Now let’s go ahead to the inside of these. First thing you’ll notice is that there’s no Velcro to goof around with.
Stepping into these are pretty awesome. There’s foam ankle support which really gives you an all-encompassing feel and they also have a suede anti slip heel to keep the foot in place.
Once again the new Fox Comp 8 motocross boots. They also come in three other color ways and are available in sizes 8-15.
