Anyone have some early reports on these boots? I’m a Fox Instinct guy but have used Sidi in the past. Anyone hear anything about these?

We just received our first pair of the Sidi Atojo into the U.S. They look amazing in person! We can't wait to ride in them!

The boot has been on the market for a while now, any first impressions?

The PR came out a long time ago but the actual boot isn't here yet. Well, possibly here now since Sidi just posted that. I've bugged them for a pair about twice a month since they announced it. Soon I'm guessing.

It is actually cheaper than the Crossfire 3 SR, which are $574.99. The new boot is $524.99, but it is still their premier level. My guess is that they will lower the price on the Crossfire 3s when they actually have stock of the Atojo.

I rode in mine for the first time this weekend. I normally wear Crossfire 2/3 TA's (the non-removable sole). The ATOJO's are definitely lighter. Control feel (brake/shifting) felt a bit different, not sure how much of that was due to the SRS sole and how much due to the slightly different shape through the ankle area. I was very impressed with how light they are, and i'm sure with a couple rides i'll adapt to the slightly different control feel.

Given that the Atojo limits plantar flexion and I'm currently recovering from a ruptured Achilles, they're on my short list of boots that are worth buying. I hope they're available sooner rather than later.

How is the sizing compared to the crossfire?

I wear a 12 in shoes, and always buy the 47/12.5 Sidi's, which fit perfect. I did not wear the ATOJO back to back with my Crossfire3's, but the 12.5 ATOJO's fit fine. Maybe a smidge tighter, but nothing major, and that opinion could be real, or due to being new, or just my imagination.

Where did you happen to get them? I’ve been anxious to try them but have not been able to find them available for sale yet at the usual spots.

Spyguy - eBay!! European seller. Took a couple weeks to get here, but still got them before the usual spots here. I was due for new boots, and decided to take the leap and go from Crossfires to the ATOJO's.

Is fit like other Sidi MX boots? No go for us guys with wide flat feet? I have a size 12 foot as well. I wear a 13 in Instincts and a 12 in Gaerne. I have never been able to get a Sidi boot fit me right.

Yes, that Velcro at the top is discouraging.

I remember having trouble with a few boots that had that, at the top.

It's touted as their best boot - I'd want buckles all the way, thanks.

I've used Sidi SRS's for years - the last pair used for 12 years, until they carked it on one ride, last year. Good service, but I still whinged about it..........

I'm currently going through a few pairs of Tech 7s, I'd somehow scored for free over the last few years. I do not like them, compared to my SRS's. I would like to get Sidis again, but I've seen a lot of flack about their quality going downhill, with dreadful back up on problems, the last few years. Perhaps the top of the line Gaernes might be 'the go', now, as I see few complaints about them?

3/15/2020 5:28 AM

Not a fan of the looks but I'll give them a try when my current Crossfire's are done.
I've tried about every top end boot out there over the years but I always came back to SIDIs for their durability.

Have you guys looked at the Forma Predator? I've been wearing them for years, great support, great protection, super solid, durable and look awesome. My dad also wear them and he has wide feet. They do have 4 buckle and a velcro to "seal" the boot at the top.

|

3/15/2020 6:35 AM

I actually like that there's only three buckles. Go figure. Sidis own my heart, and I can"t wait to get a pair of ATOJOs, but I am a little disappointed with the available color choices.

I’ve owned the Dominator and Predator. Nice boots. I’ve pretty much settled on Instincts for a while. I’ve had many sets.

Thanks for the answers. I'll have to go and try a pair if they fit me well. I've been using Tech 10 thus far but i have to step away from those. I got the latest gen boots in the fall and the hinge fell apart within 15 hours. I got new ones and they fell apart today after another 15 hours of riding (large crack in the plastic from normal movement of the boot). I love the feel and looks of the Tech 10 boots but the quality of the new generation is nowhere near acceptable.

And i'm not a rider that is tough on boots. Usually the previous generation Tech 10 held up around 50-70 hours for me without any issues.

The Crossfire 3 was certainly wider than previous versions, and the TA version is a touch wider than the SRS.
How the Atojo compares I don't know.

I got my pair today. I had size 44,5 (10US) when i rode with the Tech 10 so i went with the 44. I was a bit worried if they would've been too small since many say that Sidi runs a bit small but that wasn't the case, they are pretty much spot on. I tried them on with a bit thinner socks and there was still enough room for thicker moto socks.

I'll probably get a second set colored white in the future.

Hadn't thought of this until I saw this thread, but it seems like Sidi is completely out of the US pro motocross scene? They used to have some big names back in the day and now it seems like Fox, Gaerne, Astars kind of own all the pros.

How much did you pay + how do they compare to a techs?

Go figure, I finally pull the trigger and make the switch to sidi. Buy 3 pairs of crossfire 3’s and they immediately launch an updated model

They actually look nice in your photo. I wasn’t a fan of the look of them in the professional pictures. Strange!

The retail price here is 509€, i got a deal on them though.

It's difficult to compare them to the Tech 10s when i basically put them on my foot for the first time an hour ago. But after walking in them there are two big differences and a few smaller ones.
The big ones:
1. They are way lighter.
2. The ankle moves more so i think it will be easier to shift with these. That can however be a negative if the support that the boot has as brand new "wears out" and they get too soft. I was a fan of the stiff and protective Tech 10 boot.

The smaller differences is that the sole feels a bit more grippy, but i can't confirm that before i have actually been on the bike. Then the upper part of the Sidi is a bit softer compared to the Tech 10.

Those are some of the differences that comes to mind right now!
