The Primato follows a rich heritage of European inspired and constructed touring and road race footwear. Mid calf height is standard for racing application. The PU coated synthetic outer construction resists breaking down, deformation and thickness irregularities found in a natural material. Located behind the zipper closure is a stretch panel allowing a unique and personal fit that also aids in inserting your foot in the boot. The dual color injection molded PU shin plate and heel cap offer support and guard the foot from impacts. The shin plate features side venting ports allowing cooling air to circulate in and around the boot. Laid over the top of the instep and toe box, the shifter pad is thick enough to reduce irritation yet allows complete dexterity when shifting. Across the side of the toe, the PU molded toe slider guards the boot from unneeded wear and tear. Its own injection molded sole is aggressive enough to grip while walking yet glides on the foot pegs when riding. The mid sole and sole offer the correct amount of support to reduce fatigue and guard the bottom of the foot while riding. Mesh lining and internal padding wrap your foot in comfort. Reflective inserts are placed in the rear of the boot for safety.
