Many boots in the TCX® Touring range have uppers made of “full grain” leather. This is a natural material that offers great comfort and protection against atmospheric agents, as well as being robust and hard-wearing. The material is obtained from the most valuable leather, with a tanning technique that combines craftsmanship and advanced technology and a waterproof treatment. The TCX® touring full grain leather upper is therefore an excellent concentration of performance in terms of comfort, protection and resistance.
Comfort Fit System, developed as a result of years of TCX® know-how, has always been one of the strong points of touring products. This special and virtually entirely manual technique allows the boot to be shaped on a “mould” that faithfully reproduces the anatomy of the foot, making the product exceptionally comfortable and ideal for prolonged use in different situations.
This fine material has important features such as long-term waterproofing capacity, excellent resistance to the most extreme temperatures and high resistance to wear and tear. The special microporous structure of the GORE-TEX® fabric in expanded PTFE contains around 1.4 thousand million microscopic pores per square centimetre. These pores are approximately 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, but 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapour. So while water cannot penetrate the GORE-TEX® membrane in liquid form, sweat (water vapour) can easily evaporate. This results is a completely waterproof barrier that means the boot can be used in all climates, guaranteeing maximum comfort and optimal breathability.
