Dual Stage Pivot System - This revolutionary new system is patented and exclusive to Gaerne and is certainly going to be a hit. The 1st pivot is attached to the "Razorback". This provides a rigid component that offers a strong lateral support while a glide-plate keeps the upper in a firm and upright position.
The 2nd pivot is fixed on a sliding glide that allows the riders foot to feel natural while on the peg in a shifting or breaking situation-However, it will "bottom out" and absorb shock in the case of over-jumping a jump or in the case of unwanted compression.
Grip Guard - On the inner side of the boot is the all new rubber "Grip Guard". You can feel the exceptional grip of the bike, as well as offering a heat resistant padding against your inner leg.
Front Plate/Shin Guard - This new Thermoplastic shin plate is anatomically shaped for a perfect fit. By removing three screws a rider can also make the opening wider to accommodate a bigger leg or knee-brace.
Buckle system - The SG-12 utilizes four lightweight alloy buckles that attach to an adjustable strap. This is a "Tried and True" system that provides the rider "Easy in" and "Easy out" non failure system. Keeping it simple!
Gaiter - Made of a new Swiss breathable fabric called Acronos, the gaiter is extremely stretchy but has the perfect shape to keep the sand and debris out.
Interior Lining - On the inside you will find the famous "Gaerne Memory Cell Foam" -Known for the most comfortable feel and fit ride after ride.
Heel Cup - The new Heel cup has been designed to absorb shock in the case of a rear compression - It also doubles as a nice place to showcase the new "G" logo!
Toe-Box - This new design features a slimmer shape in the toe area for an improved feel of the shift lever and the bikes controls. The entire area is wrapped by a new plastic material which is lighter and provides more comfort and feel for the bike as well.
Toe cap - The all new shape - The toecap has been re-designed and reinforced to provide a new "tougher" look.
Sole- For the SG-12 you will notice a new design. This sole is new in look, but still uses the Gaerne "Dual Composite" anti-shock rubber that has made Gaerne soles famous around the world.
Insole - Inside the boot you will find an all new foot-bed which has been specially molded to correctly support the foot. In the rear portion of the foot-bed, a new shock absorbing material has been used. And in the front portion the construction has been made to allow the foot to vent.
