DISCOVER FORMA BOOTS TECHNOLOGY.
Learn about flex control, air intake, drytex, APS and much much more.
In order to help you make the right decision on your next motorcycle boot purchase, we've put together this blog post to better explain all the different technologies Forma Boots have developed and use to create their new range.
FCS (FLEX CONTROL SYSTEM)
The articulated brace fully supports the ankle permitting excellent flex movement front-to-back while still guaranteeing anti-torsion side- to-side. The complete cushioned rear stop helps prevent eventual ankle traumas in case of abrupt movements.
AIR INTAKE STSTEM
Air circulation can be easily regulated directly by the user thanks to the simple air ventilation windows. Air enters the windows and exits through the vented heel cup. The windows can be easily fully opened, partially or completely closed when required.
REPLACEABLE FRONT FASTERING CLOSURE
A lightly elasticized strap in the instep area can be precision adjusted by the easy “one time snap closing”. No need to undo the strap when removing the boots and no need to find the right position every time the boot is worn.
REAR PUMP RATCHET CLOSURE
Simple and quick regulation for all calf sizes is assured thanks to the rear pump ratchet closure and plastic strap.
Lightweight, stainless steel metallic finish, elevated durability and abrasion resistance are only a few of the features of this quick and easy replaceable vented slider.
PERSONALIZED RACING SOLE
Exclusive Forma personalized double density riding sole in aggressive colors and graphics completes our top of the line racing boot.
OutDry is a new patented process which allows the lamination of the membrane directly to the upper. Thanks to this unique process, OutDry® is able to enhance the comfort and the performance of the boots, especially if compared to the traditional and standard waterproof bootie system which creates a gap between the boot and the liner. In rainy or snowy conditions, water penetrates and remains trapped inside between the bootie and the upper. The foot remains dry, but the boot becomes much heavier and the membrane breathability is reduced due to the humidity and stagnant water. On the contrary, with OutDry® technology the membrane is firmly bonded to the inside of the upper and there is no possibility of creating extra space. The footwear remains water-free, lightweight and breathability is maintained.
REINFORCED TPU PROTECTIONS
Safety is further guaranteed thanks to TPU moulded plastic protections in all critical shin, ankle, heel and toe areas.
DUAL FLEX MIDSOLE
Our nylon midsole is made of a mixed compound which features elevated front flexibility for improved gear control and easy walking and a stiffer compound in the back to guarantee perfect foot stability on the foot peg. The Dual Flex midsole is featured in all of our riding and touring boots and the EVA covering on all of our waterproof boots guarantee maximum shock absorption.
DRYTEX TUBULAR LINING
All of our waterproof boots feature the booty system. The seams in the reinforced and personalized Drytex membrane are thermowelded to avoid water penetration but still assure breathability. The EVA covering on the midsole guarantees maximum shock absorption and the booty from being damaged.
APS (AIR PUMP SYSTEM)
Air is pumped from a specific centralized position in the A.P.S. perforated footbed to the entire insole; consequently, air circulation within the boot keeps feet cool and comfortable.
Soft polymer padding with memory foam is an added characteristic in all of our boots that do not feature the padded inner sock. After only a few short minutes of wear your foot adapts comfortably assuring a customized and relaxed fit. No more need to “work in” your boots!
