Thor Blitz Boots Are Ideal For Off-Road Riders
There are few pieces of motorcycle gear that are more important than boots. A helmet likely takes the No.1 spot, but boots come next. Keeping a rider secure to their bike and protecting them against the harsh conditions is critical and that's why important to find a quality pair of motorcycle boots. Those shopping for boots should look no further than Thor Blitz Boots. As Thor is a leading manufacturer of dirt bike accessories, and their products are a notch above the rest, it's no wonder they make some of the best boots in the business.
MX vs ATV
Before you grab your pair of Thor's Blitz Boots and head out to break them in, you're going to need to choose which style you prefer. At quick glance the Thor Blitz MX Boots might not seem any different from the Thor Blitz ATV Boots, in fact they have very similar construction. Both of these off-road boots are made from the same materials, utilize mesh liners to promote airflow without sacrificing comfort, and have fully synthetic heat shield built to provide an added boost to the high temperatures found near exhaust systems. With three fully adjustable straps and injection molded positive lock buckles, both styles are going to provide you with a rider specific fit.
An injection molded medial abrasion plate, with integrated shift protection, and a pre-curved shin plate adds to the overall safety of these motorcycle boots. Add in a uni-directional outsole with a steel shank insert for durability and you have a great pair of boots. In fact it is the outsole where you will find the main difference between the ATV and MX boots. While the MX boots have a primarily flat sole, the ATV version features a deeper tread great for gripping in muddy terrain.
Both sets are available in a stylish black, while the MX boots also have a white/black combo. In addition to these two boots, there are black and white Blitz Women's Boots available, which are MX boots built specifically to women's measurements.
For those looking for a lighter, more comfortable ride, the Thor Blitz LS Boots may be more up your alley. These shorty motocross boots also feature a lightweight injection molded outside and injection molded medial abrasion plate with integrated shift protection. This extra protection helps keep a rider safe from the adverse elements, all the while keeping them as comfortable as possible. They also feature a contoured gaiter, so a rider has even more mobility and comfort. The low top design is what truly resonates with riders, giving them a lighter option than a high-top boot and a more flexible design.
Thor Blitz LS Boots also have an integrated toe shift panel, metal shank insert for foot peg support, a split grain leather chassis construction and a padded mesh interior that allows for maximum comfort and ventilation. The boots were also tested according to the basic requirements of Directive 89/686/EEC.
As boots are so important to a rider, it's critical they find a pair that are of the utmost quality. Long rides or practice sessions can take a toll on a rider, especially their feet, and having a good pair of boots for support can make all the difference in taking a motorcycle a little farther. That's where all of the Thor Blitz Boots come in.
