I didnt say to buy the in-house brand at cycle gear, just stop and see whats available,
Pick your own store, I was going for generic name for Bike Shop, everyone ok with that- go to your fave store.
ICON for example offer great protection, light weight, and available from many suppliers.
The super duty 4 is a short boot, was just checking them out online, 110$ for a lot of protection.
I got a pair of lightly used Icon Field Armor boots from CL, Now I have boots with freeway level protection.
Seeing some friends on here get injured ankles, and that whole thing with my brothers near death crash-
who was NOT wearing riding boots and now puts on his new carbon fiber leg and foot!! to leave the house.
I personally will use safety gear, ride alert and buy the extra insurance to protect against those who dont pay for it!
Every rider knows what their comfort level is, and enjoys their rides in a unique way.
Do you prefer your carbon fiber in a helmet design, or designed to fit inside your head, Sir?
