TCX S-Speed Gore-Tex Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
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
Bought during recent offer, good fitting quality goretex boot. Have a slightly wide foot, usually size 8.5-9.0 Bought 9.5 (44), nice snug fit with medium weight motorcycle socks. Not tried in wet yet, but sure goretex will do it's job.
Great pair of boots
Well this is my second pair of TCX boots. I had summer ones and now I've replaced my previous winter pair for the TCX boots. They are super comfortable and warm. It took a bit to break them in and get used to the new feel on the gear shift but after that it's great. They are super light for their size. Also they have a very good grip on the pegs. Almost fell over because the rubber on the foot peg didn't slide under the boot. They are that great. Only thing I think won't last long is the zipper tag. Since it's Velcro I think it won't last very long. But overall amazing product. Sportsbikeshop is super accurate with the deliveries date. You can plan to stay home to receive the package because it will be delivered when they say. Great product Amazing Shop!
Tried lots of boots, nothing seemed to be slim enough without having tight spots until I came across these. Have a pair of TCX adventure boots also, so should have known really. Top brand, had them for years without a single leak or issue. Top service from SportsBikeShop as ever, did a price match without quibble & next day delivery. What more can I say, top notch overall.
Top Quality Boots and Reasonably Priced
My old boots were nine years old, and needed replacing replacing. Unlike most boots, these TCX S-Speed boots have sturdy ankle protection, which is an important safety consideration if you're unlucky to have an "off". On top of that, the uppers are mostly made of leather, and not cheap microfibre. For me leather is important, as it breathes and is more pliable, which makes for a better fit. The icing on the the cake is the Gore-Tex waterproof lining material, which is unusual at this price point. As others have said, the boots are close to shoe size. I'm a size 9 (Euro 43), but US size 10 fits me better. Both my old boots were size Euro 44, so I ordered these in 44. They were too big. SBS changed them swiftly for a pair of 43s, and they're a little tight, but they're breaking in nicely now. Highly recommended.
