TCX S-Speed Gore-Tex Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Comfortable, waterproof and secure
Bought this as it has the Goretex guarantee. Just come back from 3000 miles across europe in blazing sun and torrential rain. Kept me dry and comfortable at all times. Needs a bit of furniture polish or similar on the hinged bits to keep the squeaks at bay :)
Tcx goretex boots
Recentley purchased to replace my sidi black rains I've had for years. Overall impressions are the quality is top notch and the fit is slightly roomier than the sidis, which is actually better especially for off the bike. Can't rate the waterproof qualities but its gore tex so it should be fine and all for £170. I can see the justification for paying anymore! Well happy.
I've worn these for the last 9 months of biking, they have performed brilliantly in both cold and wet UK weather and the blazing sunshine of Spain. Fully waterproof, comfortable and seem really well made. Very creaky when walking though, which gets some interesting looks!!!
All day comfy
Straight out the box fit like my favourite slippers. Except they're waterproof and have all the safety features of race boots and they look cool. My slippers however are old, have been chewed by the dog, they're lined with sheepskin, and not remotely safe on the bike. I'd go with these boots if I were you.
Excellent Gortex Boots
These are the third pair of these I've bought now. As a BloodBike rider & a fan of European touring I have had to ride through all weathers. These boots have always kept me dry even through the worst that mother nature can throw at me whilst offering good ankle protection. Unfortunately TCX have stopped making them so it was great to find some still on sale.
This is now the 2nd pair of TCX boots I own. These were a replacement for my long suffering Sidi Goretex boots I had had since being an instructor. I can say without doubt that these are as good if not BETTER than the Sidi's and the Alpinestars I have used over the past 40 years. Bedded in really quickly. Superb fit, exactly for my normal sizing. Really warm, which was a major thing I was looking for. And, living on the West coast of Scotland, I NEED waterproof. I can attest to the the latter being 100 percent proven. I have used these in 2 torrential 50 mile round trips and was really pleased with the warmth and the total lack of the slightest moisture in the boots. Will definitely buy again. A pity they dont go down to small enough sizes for the Mrs, as she needs a new pair of waterproof boots for our upcoming trip round the Highlands (bound to rain!!!) in July.
definitely go a size up. I am an 8 I could get in them, the hell was a great fit but the width across the toes was too painful. Orders next size up 43 (8.5-9) and the fit is much betters super comfy, super warm, goretex so you know its waterproof! but the heel is loose. Not a problem for me as I bought for winter use so will be wearing my thick socks which takes up the slack. Mine don't squeak but using a bit of lube will sort that if they do. When on my feet feel very well protected and snug which I quite like. Unfortunately I have only used them 3 times and some of the outer material is coming undone from where it meets the sole around the slider area which is a poor show given the price. Not worried though as I know I have the backing of SBS! returns label printed and off they will go tomorrow morning for inspection.
These boots are really comfortable, feeling the gear lever and brake lever is easy through the boot. Although I've not had a chance to test how waterproof they are in the rain yet. Following the advice of other reviews, and also the instructions in the manual, I have got some silicone ready to use when the moving plastic parts become noisy.
Great boots and reasonably priced
I bought these boots to replace my Alpinestars Goretex boots. The boots are very comfortable and I had no issues with sizing. I am a 43 in Alpinestars and ordered the same for the TCX. I'll give them a much better run soon but currently extremely happy.
High quality boots
Very well made boots offering great protection. I do agree with many other 'reviews regarding the sizing - I'm normally an 8 with a slightly wide foot, and use Spada ST 1's which in an 8 are perfect but the TCX were almost painfully tight in euro 42 so swapped for a euro 43 and they're much better. Easy to put on and take off without any lining issues, need prob 250 - 300 miles to wear in, a little squeaky but not major, haven't tested in the rain yet.
Best boots; best price!
Finally had to replace my old TCX Goretex boots after several years and a few thousand miles of wear after the TCS frame broke and I was unable to get a replacement. These had always been warm and comfortable and never once leaked and had stood the test of time after being re-soled and heeled twice and having a new zip fitted at one stage so I was keen to stick with TCX and bought these as the closest match. Great service from SportsBikeShop who I hadn't used before in price matching, delivery speed and communication. Very professional throughout. I was a little concerned at first that the boots were going to be too small after ordering a size 8 to match my previous pair but after a lot of bedding in around the house and then committing to using them on the bike they have moulded in quite nicely after just a couple of hundred miles or so. Lovely solid but supple boot with a real quality feel. The only problem I've encountered is that these boots have a deep groove in the heel which tend to collect pebbles when walking across my gravelled drive! I use Renapur leather treatment on all my boots, gloves, leathers, etc. and this seems to work well without affecting the Goretex performance.
So far so good
I haven't tried these in anger but they look great and feel really comfortable. I'm normally a size 10 but went for the 10.5 based on other reviews and they fit perfectly. Time will tell regarding waterproofing, but for now they are great.
Exactly what I wanted.
As per usual the service from SportsBikeShop was brilliant, I have been using them for years and I have never been disappointed with their service. I needed a new pair of boots and my budget was circa £200 and my criteria was that they needed to be Leather, Gore-Tex and have as much protection as I could get (especially around the ankle) and these boots tick all those boxes and more. The boots fit perfectly but I did go a size up, easy to get on and off, they are comfortable both on & off the bike but do squeak a bit due to the "Torsion Control System" but that does not bother me. I have only been out in light rain so I have not tested their "Waterproofness" yet, but they are Gore-Tex so I have no reason to doubt it. I am very happy with them and I would recommend both SportsBikeShop & these boots.
Waterproof, squeaky and comfy
Comfort is insane, they are shaped very nicely so that when you put your feet in, they don't wiggle inside or anything. The gore-tex works fabulously, never seen a drop of water inside or had wet socks. They stay warm as long as you don't go to negative degrees, then definitely gonna need thick socks. It's important to point out what others said as well, these boots are very squeaky when walking around and that's due to the "Torsion Control System". I was able to fix this issue by putting silicone grease between the plastic parts (TCS) and they are now silent as ever. So if you don't mind either walking like squeaky toy or putting little DYI to it, go for these boots as you won't find anything better for this price that is gore tex.
Dry and Warm
When it gets to the point that every other part of your body is soaked and frozen but your feet are warm and dry then you know these are some damn good boots. with me riding to and from work 365 days a year these boots have proved to be amazing beating my SIDI and Alpinestars hands down !
Water resistant - perfect Comfortable - perfect Warm - great up to 0 degrees Squeaky - level 100 - very Although they are quite squeaky doesn't bother me at all as they have more pros than cons. Plus they are great value for money. Feet remain dry in complete downpours so I have nothing to complain about. Really happy with the buy.
Quality goretex boot
