D.F.C. DOUBLE FLEX CONTROL SYSTEM
The Double Flex Control System features a PU joint in the ankle area studied to improve front and rear flexibility of the leg. The system is attached to the boot with two lateral hidden screws at malleolus level. This special construction allows a front flexibility of up to 18 degrees and, thanks to two lugs that slide inside dedicated pockets, it allows a rear flexibility of up to 15 degrees, thus avoiding back overextension of the ankle joint and protecting the riders’ foot from injuries.
BOOT LEG STRUCTURE
The bootleg features an external polyurethane exterior and a soft internal upper designed to envelop the leg completely and offer excellent comfort levels.
Internal upper construction:
1 – Soft microfibre upper allows enhanced calf envelopment;
2 – Double Velcro fastening;
3 – Elastic upper collar to avoid gravel, dust and mud entry.
CALF ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM
The shin plate is made of polyurethane and presents an adjustable system to fit different calf dimensions perfectly and to accommodate knee guards/braces. The shin plate adjustment is based on screws that shift inside hidden holes, each offering two different positions to choose from according to the range of movement you wish to achieve.

“MOLDED ” CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUE (MICHELIN® SOLE)
This particular construction technique entails fitting the boot onto a polyurethane footbed, built with variable differentiated density and thickness and marked by the presence of a steel insert in the heel area to ensure maximum protection in the case of impact. The footbed is sewn directly onto the boot and, using a high tenacity bonding process, the rubber (MICHELIN®) sole is subsequently applied and is therefore easily replaced when worn.
