AXO America presents a new high performance high quality road racing boot, the Aragon, named after the European MotoGP track. Years of experience on the Lancer boots have been put into the development of the Aragon boot. Tested at over 180 mph (300 km/h), the Aragon is what you need to stay comfortable, yet safe, at high speeds. This is the only road racing boot in the world with no zipper, no buckles and only one steel lace thanks to BOA’s patented Closure System. The frontal steel lacing pattern was developed to ensure the foot stays in place at high deceleration. The boot is equipped with lateral/back anti-torsion brace system, a microfiber upper with front and back anti abrasion inserts, and polyurethane shin, calf and heel guards with a metal anti-shock heel insert. The Aragon has removable and interchangeable plastic shin and toe sliders, ankle support hinge system, and AXO’s own rubber racing sole.
Although the Aragon is new to the United States it had already made noise on the world racing stage. French rider, Sylvain Guintoli, wore the Aragon in the first 2012 World SBK Championship at Philip Island, Australia where he took home a third place finish.
This weekend Zach Herrin gives the Aragon its American debut at the Daytona 200. “I love everything about the Aragon, it looks great, feels great, and I know it provides the protection I need” said Herrin.
The Aragon boot retails for $325.00 and is now available to all riders.
