The Gaerne SG-12 boots are an absolutely incredible piece of gear. The SG12 is one of those products so awesome, when you use them, you hold them in your hands, it is hard to summarize how good they really are. The finishing, the comfort, the incredible Gaerne fit, are world class. BOMBER recommended.
  • Features the new revolutionary Dual Stage Pivot System
  • The first pivot is attached to the boot, providing a rigid component that offers a strong lateral support while a glide-plate keeps the upper in a firm and upright position. The second pivot is fixed on a sliding glide that allows the riders foot to feel natural while on the peg in a shifting or breaking position.
  • The new Heel Cup absorbs shock in case of a rear compression.
  • Toe-Box features a slimmer shape in the toe area for better feel of the shift and brake lever.
  • Improved inner grip guard for abrasion resistance
  • Interior lining is made up of the Gaerne Memory Cell Foam, known for the most comfortable feel and fit.
  • All new rubber Grip Guard helps grip of the bike and offers heat resistant padding against your inner leg.
  • Thermoplastic shin plate is anatomically shaped for a perfect fit, and accommodates the rider by allowing a wider opening for a larger leg or knee-brace.
  • The SG-12 Buckle System utilizes four lightweight alloy buckles that attach to an adjustable strap, providing an easy-in and easy-out non failure system.
  • Boot is constructed of an all new Swiss breathable fabric called Acronos. It allows the gaiter to be extremely stretchy but hold the perfect shape, keeping   sand and debris out.
  • Toe-Cap has been redesigned and reinforced giving it a new look.
  • Sole is made up of the Gaerne Dual Composite anti-shock rubber, but has a whole new look.
  • An all new foot-bed has been designed and molded to correctly support the foot.
  • A new shock absorbing material has been used for the rear of the foot-bed and the front portion has been designed to allow the foot to vent.

Brian at Atomic Moto is simply the best in the business - took the time to advise me on the boots for my type of riding and spent almost an hour on the phone. His customer service is legendary and the reason why I’m a repeat customer of his for moto boots


Comfy and protective

Wanted more protection and the SG12s deliver

Coming from Leatt 4.5 (similar to tech 7s) boots, I wanted more protection and longer life. The SG12 have much better protection and support. Its great that you can replace the sole when the time comes. I was worried about the SG12s being too stiff for me to feel the rear brake, however Brian assured me that its not an issue once you spend some time in them...He was right. My only problem is that now I want them in a few more colors.

Also, Brian spent over 20 minutes on the phone with me discussing all the different boot options. He gave me a great perspective on each option and helped with my decision greatly.

SG-12 excellent boots

Worked with Brian for about a week trying to decide what would be best for me. Decided on Gaerne SG12's and they are fantastic boots. 47 Euro fits perfect. In street shoes I'm 12-13 depending on brand. 6'-3" and ~220lbs for reference. Boots are very high quality. All parts are replaceable and the boots work well right out of the box. Minimal break-in time - you could walk around for 10 minutes and they're good to go. They feel very protective and served me well on my first trail ride which included multiple offs for my noobish skillset. Of all the things I worry about injuring, my feet and ankles are not on that list! I don't have an issue with the weight of the boot as they are not the lightest, but they are very well made and should last me several seasons. I also considered Sidi and Forma, but the SG-12 features seemed best for me. I really like the extra padding around the ankle and in the top of the toe box.

I can't recommend Atomic-Moto enough! Brian is excellent and extremely knowledgeable. Buy the best boot you can afford! Without Brian's help I surely would have bought the incorrect boot for me and would have in the end cost me way more than a pair of SG-12.

Tried Sidi, Forma, Gaerne - picked Gaerne SG-12 for the Win

Really wanting a new pair of boots I call Atomic Moto. They were extremely helpful in educating me on the boots that I was interested in and the pro's and con's of each boot. I started off with the Forma Predator 2.0 which was a sweet boot, but right boot didn't feel quite right, mostly due to an injury. Called Atomic back and after long conversation I decided to try the SG 12 Gaerne, they spoke very highly of them. and after having them in my possession (I also tried) a pair of Sidi Crossfire TA 3s......after trying the Sidi TA 3, which were a very good boot, I went with the Gaerne SG 12 for the Quality and comfort. I highly would recommend Atomic Moto.....they are very informative and patient. Thank you again Atomic.
