RST Tundra CE Leather Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
I am new to biking and I was using these boots with the company I used for my CBT. The boots I feel are good started boot and will be durable well into becoming intermediate on the bike. Personally I feel you would want to move on from these are you progress. Its good quality leather, comfortable and secure. The velco I feel could have extended a little further to tighten in the top of the boot - this is only for a purpose of getting jeans over the top, which I have been unable to do yet, because of this the jeans are tucked in and the velco catches when putting the stand down. Its small issues but depending on your personality this is going to be something that will annoy you or you won't even consider. For whatever reason if these boots were unuseable tomorrow I would still buy another pair until I am ready to spend more money on boots. Sizing is accurate, they are comfortable and keep your feet warm. Only worn them in temperatures of 11-16 degrees so can't say how they perform in hotter or colder temperatures.
RST Tundra Boot
A bit worried when I first tried them on as they seemed slightly tight and stiff. Worn them about 3 times now (4-5 hours total), they have signed up and are really comfortable to ride and walk in. Not tried in heavy rain but they are a simple design and I envisage no problem. Really pleased.
Fantastic boots, true to fit, i am a uk size 8 and ordered the 42, these are a great fit with normal socks and have kept my feet warm. Yet to try in wet weather but have no doubt that they will be perfect. Great boot and very comfy, no blisters at all, and a fab price too!
Excellent value, warm and dry
I'm returning to biking after a few years away. I needed a full set of gear. Searched RiDE Recommended, read the reviews and purchased based on this. Was a little apprehensive about sizing. I'm a UK size 8 (Eu42). Based on the review recommendations I purchase Eu43. Perfect. Room for thick socks. Had my first cold, wet ride last Friday. Very impressed. Bone dry and warm. Very happy. And SportsBikeShop delivery was FAST. Brilliant.
Great product, great service
First week out and I found myself riding for two hours in the worst storm I have ridden in for many years. The boots worked exceptionally well, they kept me warm and dry in great comfort, greatly exceeding my expectations. A great fitting boot at a great price.
These boots are unbelievably comfortable and warm, I haven't been out in the rain yet but come to think we haven't had any rain this summer yet. They are very comfy on the leg and jeans fit over them or in them either way they look good. The size was smack on too, and can't beat the price. Thank you.
Great value boots that surprised
I am normally too lazy to complete reviews, but when I find a product that surprises me, I make the effort. With wide feet I can often find it difficult to find boots, my track day boots are range topping and expensive, but I tried several cheaper options before accepting that you may have to pay for comfort. For road and trips away, I wanted a waterproof boot and had resigned myself to having to pay a lot again, but I think RST gear is often very good value, so I thought I would try a cheaper boot one last time (I couldn't get on with their track focused boots). The fit was great, the quality of the boot also seemed pretty damn good and I was so impressed I decided to wear them to Le Mans last week straight from the box and not broken in (which seems unnecessary). I was comfortable the whole time in them my feet were warm and had no issues when walking. For the price I am very impressed and as they do the job so well, I am going to order a 2nd pair as a backup, nice job RST!
Do the job
They are a little smaller and neater then the RST Paragons I bought them to replace. They are a slightly snugger fit but not uncomfortable. In fact, I would say they are slightly better for walking around in then the Paragons. They are secured with a full length Velcro flap covering a half length zip. The zip has a tab that sticks to the Velcro to stop it coming down when the flap is closed. Something that has never happened to me in my life. Size wise, I wear Euro 44 shoes and have big calves. RST boots in size 46 fit me comfortably. Comfort wise, they were quite snug when new but a few hundred miles has seen the fit improve nicely. Comfortable all day in all weather.
Do the job
Fit well though previous RST had the half boot zip which worked better for me but hey ho I'll get used to these. Comfy but as bought online didn't have chance to try with extra pair of socks but ordered as size +1 to normal fitting. Put together well. Will see over next year whether velcro is built to last unlike previous RST boots.
Inferior to discontinued Raptor 2 boots
Bought these as another review said these were the same as the Raptor 2 (which I own). However, these boots are better in that the Velcro fastening is now on the boot flap rather than the boot (so it doesn't destroy the legs of your jeans / leathers). They are worse in that the leather is rough / stippled (not the smooth leather finish on the Raptor 2, nor on my Alpinestars Web Gore Tex boots). They are also narrower in the foot and slightly shorter and generally feel inferior quality with a larger shin protector that will not fit under my Weise Hydra leather jeans unlike the Raptor 2 which do nicely. I have a UK 9 in the Raptor 2, a UK 10 in the Alpinestars, but neither the 9 nor the 10 fit in these new Tundra boots - so both pairs will have to go back. Shame, as I really liked the Raptor 2 boots. Excellent service as always from SBS - which goes without saying these days!
Great boots, perfect size fit, very comfy even when walking some distance. 100% waterproof, great look. Sportsbikeshop - great hassle free service, fast delivery with 1 hour delivery window confirmed. Definitely worth recommendation - both, Shop and Boots.
