DEFINING A NEW CLASS

When we set out to re-create motorcycle boots to the REV’IT! standard, we listened to what our customers had been telling us for years. They needed something protective, waterproof, comfortable and easy-to-use – all with excellent style and “walkability” off the bike, and without the bulk of traditional ADV boots.

RISING TO THE CHALLENGE

It was a tall order, but our designers rose to the challenge. They ignored what existing motorcycle boot styles dictated, and instead set out to find the best partners, components and designs to deliver on our promise to riders, to continually push the boundaries of what seems possible.

THE END RESULT IS THE DISCOVERY OUTDRY®

A boot that has not only re-defined what an adventure motorcycle boot looks like, but, more importantly, how it functions both on and off the bike. We partnered with pioneers from the outdoor industry, like Vibram®, OutDry® and Boa®, to bring the best components together in one boot, and to deliver to our customers the product they’d been waiting for.

A GROUNDBREAKING SOLE

As the saying goes, a building is only as strong as its foundation—and likewise, a boot is only as strong as its sole.

THE VIBRAMAPEX SOLE

When we began brainstorming the Discovery OutDry, we looked to what the most successful outdoor companies were relying on for extreme grip, durability and comfort, and all roads fast led to Vibram, the world-renowned manufacturer of soles. The Vibram Apex sole is CE compliant, meeting the requirements set forth for protective motorcycle footwear.

And like other Vibram® soles, it is made with Mont compound, a firm rubber tested on the world’s highest peaks for maximum support and durability. In one sole, we combined everything a rider needs while stopped at a light, standing on the pegs, tearing through dirt backroads, or taking a day hike. Total game-changer.

So, what sets the Vibram® Apex sole apart? We redesigned its structure to meet the distinct needs of motorcyclists. This includes: a self-cleaning, open lug pattern that brings traction and safety, an asymmetrical heel line that optimizes the boot position on the crank, and an added multi-density EVA layer that reduces overall weight and absorbs shock.

But we know that motorcycle soles need to function in a unique, specific way and this is where we consider ourselves experts. The conclusion was to marry the expertise of the two companies, and so REV’IT! designers worked side-by-side with Vibram® to create the first fully co-branded Vibram® sole in the motorcycle market: The Vibram® Apex sole.

waterproofing

Many boot systems on the market rely on internal booties and bladders for waterproofing, so when it rains, water soaks through the outer boot layer and the user is left with a waterlogged and a humid interior. 

About this page

To ensure the lightest, driest motorcycle boot possible, we partnered with OutDry®, leaders in the outdoor industry in waterproofing innovation; they use a patented 3D lamination machine to achieve a fully waterproof barrier on the exterior of the boot, avoiding the need for fussy seam seals and creating a surface that water cannot penetrate.

It means that the boots dry faster, the wearer is never carrying around excess “soak” weight, and the temperature of the foot is more stable (from the elimination of a wet liner drawing heat away from the foot). This was an important component for us to get right, because dry and comfortable feet mean a less distracted, more focused rider.

DIAL & LOCK
CLOSURE

For an innovative closure system, we wanted something that was secure, convenient, and that closed the boot in a way that supported the foot and ankle. Thus, we turned to Boa®, an Australian company renowned for its closures in the snow sports industry.

The Boa® “dial” closures utilize aircraft-grade stainless steel enclosed in nylon and paired with low-friction lace guides; the dial is turned to tighten the laces uniformly around the foot and ankle, then snapped into place once the desired tightness is achieved. To release the tension, the rider simply pops the dial open. It allows for excellent, precision, adaptability and control in a product that’s guaranteed to stand the tests of time.

PROTECTION & CONSTRUCTION

Once all the components partners were in place, we went back to the drawing board to put all the protective elements in line. Thermoformed plastic was added at the toe, heel and shin; it’s a hard plastic heated and molded to the perfect shape so that it’s virtually undetectable to the rider, but is actively protecting against impact, abrasion and lacerations.

LITTLE BROTHER

For those who crave the features and performance of the Discovery OutDry® in a style that’s made more for the everyday, we created the Pioneer OutDry®. Designed as a hybrid between a hiking boot and a motorcycling boot, the Pioneer packs all the high-caliber technical components of the Discovery into a smaller, ankle-height package that can be worn just as easily with jeans as with adventure riding pants. It’s a product that emphasises our commitment to delivering solutions riders can take with them off the bike.
