FORMA and function

Arrow SX Dry waterproof race boot

FORMA’s Arrow SX Dry race boots offer riders all of the benefits of a top-flight Italian race boot with the functionality of a reliable waterproof linier and the reassurance of the CE-mark.
Designed and developed in Italy, FORMA are the boots of choice for Max Neukirchner in World Superbikes and James Ellison in BSB. Manufactured exclusively in Europe, FORMA is one of only a handful of manufacturers committed to producing boots that are CE-certified to the EN13634 standard for motorcycle boots.

The Arrow SX boot has a leather upper reinforced by replaceable plastic protection for the calf and malleolus (the bony prominence on each side of the ankle) and with an ankle support system too. There is a double protective Velcro and zip closure to ensure a watertight fit and the replaceable toe sliders are anti-spark magnesium.

Waterproofing is assured thanks to a Drytex® tubular lining, which creates an internal waterproof ‘sock’ rather than attaching the liner to the sole, providing reliable long-lasting water resistance. The sole, meanwhile, has a TPU Dual Flex and anti-shock EVA midsole that protects the instep but allows flexibility for the ball of the foot for comfortable walking. Forma Arrow SX Dry boots are produced in sizes 7-13 in a choice of black or white retailing for £149.95. Planet Knox T. 01900 825825 – W.
