Developed in conjunction with the assistance of Ricky Carmichael, the new Instinct Boot from Fox is a premium offering which is soon to lead the pack.
The Instinct has undergone the most extensive product wear testing in the history of Fox. Six prototypes & hundreds of test boots over three years evolved into the Instinct of today, with the final result being a clear elevation of motocross boot performance. The Instinct objective was to produce a boot with exceptional ankle support with a hinge design that keeps a subtle, leather boot feel with instant comfort & no break-in time. A unique, new buckle utilizes a lever system with friction enclosure. No pins are used. This buckle is made to last the life of boot. Features -New instep material and piping as well as new gasket material for improved abrasion resistance -New instep pattern eliminates gaping -New TPU mid-sole insert for added stability -New TPU hinge cover eliminates premature wear over the hinge bolt on inside of boot -Rounded edges on all straps eliminates chaffing of instep -Longer underlay on two lower straps -FRE Hinge design (Full Response Engineering): Provides a controlled range of movement allowing effortless linear mobility & incredible lateral stability -Patented hinge lock-out stops rear motion before hyperextension -Top of boot gasket creates a secure seal. Velcro was eliminated to offer increased mobility -DURATAC™ rubber compound on the outsole, burn guard & hinge cover -LRC (Low Ride Chassis): Gets the riders foot lower & closer to the footpeg -RCI (Ride Control Interface): The entire outsole & medial side of the boot is shaped & textured to provide the rider with unobstructed contact with the bike -Buckles: All new Patented buckle design that utilizes a pivoting clasp system.
By using a spherical locking head, the Instinct buckle works like a ball & socket joint. The clasp pivots 8 degrees in both directions allowing for automatic natural alignment of the straps. -Insole: The athletic footbed acting as the first stage in Instincts progressive cushioning system is similar to one that you would find in a running shoe -Shank: Imbedded in the Polyurethane midsole, the shank design is perfectly positioned to provide arch support while letting the front of the foot & boot flex for bike interface & walking comfort -Midsole: The PU (Polyurethane) midsole provides amazing step-in comfort & vibration dampening -The embedded tempered steel shank is encapsulated in the PU material giving the Instinct footpeg arch support & awesome comfort (Patented Design) -Heel: The strategically placed TPU Heel Stabilizer provides heel & arch support -Out sole: Features Fox’s DURATAC rubber compound that disperses vibrations from the bike, provides amazing grip & outstanding durability (Lifetime Guarantee)
