Spada Aurora Boots Review

January 21, 2016 — 0

Aurora-morebikes-960x720.jpg

Recently, MoreBikes.co.uk reviewed the Spada Aurora boot as a touring boot, but were pleasantly surprised to find that they performed equally as well as an all year round boot – as well as proving comfortable enough whilst off the bike.

The leather, water resistant boots come with TPU moulded shin, heel, toe and ankle protection as well as having reflective features for extra visibility, and at £99.95, the Aurora boot really impressed the MoreBikes.co.uk team.

Read the Spada Aurora boots review:

Perfectly good all-round boots, suitable for any road use. – Mikko, MoreBikes.co.uk

“My old boots were starting to fall apart last autumn, so a new pair was a must, and I’m genuinely impressed with these Spada Aurora boots. They are classed as ‘touring’ boots, but they make perfectly good all-round boots, suitable for any road use.

The boots are made from PU-coated leather*, they are water-resistant, and have moulded protectors in the heel, shin and ankle. The toe and heel have been reinforced to add protection.

The boots have reflective piping running down the outside of the calf to make the rider more visible in the dark. Every little helps.

A lot of boots can be a bit of a pain to get on and off, but these aren’t too bad, thanks to the long side zip that allows the boot to open all the way down. There’s also a stretchy panel at the back of the boot for added comfort.

The moulded gear change pad is a nice feature and stops the gear lever digging into the foot and damaging the boot. Useful if you have a manual bike.

Some motorcycle boots really aren’t made for walking, but these ones are quite comfortable off the bike as well as on it. The soles are fairly soft, which means that you can walk around in them without the clunk, clunk, clunk of hard sports boots.

My only issue with the boots is that the zip sometimes gets stuck and it is a bit of pain to get unstuck again (especially if you’re wearing gloves).

At the moment Spada is offering an extended two-year warranty if the product is registered online.

Info: www.spadaclothing.co.uk

*PU or bicast leather is a material made with a split leather backing covered with a layer of polyurethane. This gives the surface a glossy look, which is easier to clean and maintain than pure leather, but it lacks the strength, breathability and durability of natural leather.

Spada Enforcer Glove Review

November 10, 2015 — 0

spada-enforcer-glove-black-960x575.jpg

If you are looking for a sporty racing style glove that will also keep your hands and fingers toasty this winter then the Spada Enforcer glove has had a fantastic review in Twist and Go Magazine and has been a real hit with our customers too.

Spada Enforcer Glove Review, Spada enforcer glove.

Here’s what Twist and Go Magazine had to say about the Spada Enforcer Glove.

The Enforcer WP (waterproof) is a full winter ‘race-style’ glove with moulded black carbon knuckle sections; it features ‘digital’ leather reinforcements on the palms with keprotec inserts. The gloves are fitted with a waterproof and breathable Hipora membrane and Thinsulate thermal linings.

A visor wipe on the left thumb helps riders to keep their vision clear whilst riding in the rainy weather. There’s also a velcro wrist strap adaptor which helps to ensure that the gloves fit correctly to your hands.

Spada enforcer glove, motorcycle glove, spada motorcycle glove, spada clothing

Having gotten used to riding using Summer weight gloves, these were the first Winter weight offerings I’ve tried in a while, so I wasn’t surprised when they didn’t offer the same amount of ‘feel’ as a pair of Summer gloves. Wearing gloves like this is a sign that Winter is only just around the corner; the extra thickness of the material and layer, although a bit more restrictive, is there for a reason – to keep out the Wintery elements.

Being new, the gloves took a little time to become more supple, but after a few miles of use that stiffness in the fingers soon disappeared, giving me the flexibility I’d expect and the ability to maintain control of the bikes switches and levers.

The 35 mile ride home on one cold dark night also confirmed the gloves’ ability to provide a decent amount of weather protection and at no time did the occasion arise where hand or fingers suffered any noticeable coldness.

September 24, 2015 — 0

Spada-triflex-blog-piece1-960x1357.jpg

The Spada Triflex is brand new to the Spada range this year and has proven to be very popular especially with the guys at Scootering and for only £89.95 they’re a fantastic buy!

The Spada Triflex touring boot was tried and tested for a 3 month period, taking the boot across country and all the way to Munich and have seen well over 3000 miles.

Here’s what Scootering had to say:

“I’ve only had these boots a couple of months but with a long ride out to Euro Lambretta and a couple of other events they have already seen over 30000 miles of use. They are  very comfortable while being ridged enough to inspire confidence and flexible enough to walk around in once off the bike, unlike other boots I have had they do not weigh a tonne and require only one good pair of socks underneath.”

Spada triflex, spada boot, motorcycle boot, motorcycle touring boot

“The sales blurb says that they are waterproof and after being caught in a monsoon in Munich and a downpour in Didcot I can confirm they are. Easy to do up via the three velcro straps on the side no need to wrestle with them ti free your feet. Also very comfortable after some days of real mile munching, all in all very good all round boots.”

Recently we gained another exceptional review of our Spada products from Visor Down, who had high praises to sing about the Burnout jacket.

“The jacket is made of a tough ‘Maxdura’ protective outer shell, it has a fixed waterproof and breathable lining and a removable thermal lining, handy for the changeable weather. It means I can leave home with the thermal lining attached and remove it on warmer evenings.  There are also zip vents in the shoulders and back for better airflow on hot days.”

Visor Down went on to say:

“I am always concerned with being seen at night and wear a brightly coloured helmet and reflective bands. The Burnout comes with reflective panels built-in, so it’s a bit more peace of mind in the dark.”
