HISTORY IN THE MAKING

The German Red Dot Award is one of the most coveted awards in the world of design and product development. It’s an acknowledgement for dedication in design, regardless of the product developed. It's also not the first time that we’ve been recognized by the Red Dot.

In 2010, we won the Best of the Best award for our 3D-engineered Jerez racing gloves and in 2015, we won the award for our SEEFLEX™ family of protectors. After receiving the Red Dot 2019 “Best of the Best” award for the Expedition H2O boots, we're proud to say we have done it (again)!

HOW IT ALL STARTED

What make these boots so special? After all, there are quite a few options for adventure footwear on the market. For one, we’re always looking to step things up to the next level, to find innovative ways to develop new products and increase the level of comfort and protection for our riders.

Most adventure boots currently on the market are a compromise. And we don’t like compromises. We received a lot of feedback from you, our customer. Not just positive feedback, but also the difficulties that you’re facing when exploring. We took this to heart and that’s where the journey to the realization of the Expedition H2O boots began.

WORKING AS A TEAM

The revolutionary Expedition H2O boot  is unique to the market. By incorporating the innovative REV’IT! Dynamic Support Frame (DSF) wearers no longer have to think about safety or comfort when riding on and off-road – those features are automatically woven into the DNA of each boot. The REV’IT!|DSF consists of three components that include the calf support structure, heel cup, and stability frame. There are a lot of unique and hidden features in this boot.

For example, the BOA closure system, which is made from aircraft-grade stainless steel. Riders can easily adjust the fit to their preferences in an extremely efficient way. The only thing you have to do is push the knob to engage and turn it until the right amount of tension is achieved. That’s it! Hello user-friendliness. But there’s more than meets the eye.

TESTED TO THE LIMIT

Before we launched the Expedition H2O boots to the market, we asked a group of experienced and knowledgeable adventure riders from all over the world to take these babies for a ride. And so they did.

Together, they accumulated over 100,000 kilometers of on and off-road riding and faced the harshest of conditions. We gained valuable feedback, which resulted in a product that we already believed was the best of the best. We’re proud to see that the Red Dot Award felt the same.

Red Dot Jury Verdict

About this page

THE JURY HAS SPOKEN

The Red Dot Jury isn’t just a random group of people that had been put into a room together to go through the product submissions. Forty international experts test, discuss, analyze and evaluate each and every entry, live and on-site.

The Red Dot jury has spoken and this is their verdict:

“The Expedition H2O motorcycle boots embody a perfect merger of form and function. They are made of high-quality materials, which make them durable, and fully waterproof thanks to a hydratex®|Sphere membrane. Based on the innovative Dynamic Support Frame (DSF) concept, they guarantee maximum safety, comfort, and accuracy of fit, covering the three protection components of calf support, heel cup, and stability frame.”
