Constructed using Gaerne’s G.Stretch Fit System which provides a snug fit like a second skin around your ankle and foot providing the ability to stretch with your movement for unprecedented comfort.
Built for comfort but not sacrificing on protection the Helium includes a shielded front shin and ankle along with a reinforced upper to prevent your gear lever digging into the top of your foot. Elasticated front and back instep areas provide a great fit while the Fluro reflex inserts enhance visibility in all light conditions. The foam ankle along with an anatomic removable shock absorbing insole provides additional comfort on and off the bike.

Gore-Tex is a waterproof, breathable fabric membrane. Invented in 1969, Gore-Tex can repel liquid water while allowing water vapour to pass through and is designed to be a lightweight, waterproof fabric for all-weather use. Whether you’re dashing through showers or cruising in town on a hot summer day, you get innovative waterproof, windproof, and breathable functionality.
Gore-Tex products are rigorously tested for reliable protection even in demanding conditions. The Gore-Tex membrane contains pores smaller than a water droplet, but larger than a water vapour molecule. So, rain can’t get in, but sweat can get out. Whatever happens, you can trust that your Gore-Tex boots will keep you cool and dry.
So, there you have it, the Gaerne Gore-Tex Helium Touring Boots. Lightweight with a great fit. Waterproof while remaining breathable to keep you cool, ideal for summer and spring riding.
