REV'IT! Expedition GTX Boots
We’ve made our award-winning ADV motorcycle boots even better and here’s how. They combine the protection of MX boots with breathable GORE-TEX waterproofing and unsurpassed comfort on and off the bike. Furthermore, the solution to reaching the next level of protection without sacrificing next-level rider comfort was the development of the Dynamic Support Frame (DSF).Closure:
- Boa® fit system
- Boa® M4 Platform
The unique Boa® fit system makes for a perfect fit, an extremely fast closure, and a very light weight boot. Enter the shoe, push the knob to engage, turn it for the perfect fit, and pull up on the knob for a quick release. Once locked in place the Boa® reels and laces stay that way. Made from aircraft-grade stainless steel, Boa® laces are stronger per gram than tank armor.Lining:

The combined expertise of the Italian company Vibram® and our in-house developers led to the birth of the revolutionary Vibram® Apex sole. This sole has been specifically developed for adventure motorcycling but offers the comfort of a trekking boot. Its profile features one distinct area for traction, one for braking, and one for stability. The surface of the sole is a bit larger providing more comfort while walking. The durable material and construction ensure this sole will last.Certification:

This boot is sold in European sizes. And we find this boot to run smaller than other brands/styles of the equivalent EU size. REVIT’s size conversion chart shown below reflects how the boots run smaller than usual. Using the new chart, you’ll be buying a boot that is 1/2 to one size bigger than you might choose in other EU sized boots.
Our fit advice is to use the chart below to choose an EU size based upon your US street shoe size, while keeping in mind you maybe be choosing one size larger than you may have bought from REVIT in past seasons. If you are between sizes in the chart, choose the larger.

Our Two Cents
The REV’IT! Expedition GTX boots are an update on their previous model that used their in house proprietary H2O Hydraliner. Now you have the performance of Gore-Tex built into a great dual sport/adventure riding boot.
The Expedition GTX boot is the big brother of REV’IT!’s adventure boot line. The middle child would be the Discovery GTX boots which have a taller upper than the Pioneer and but are a little shorter than the Expedition and offer slightly less shin protection than seen here. All three boots use the BOA lace system, which is a fantastic update on the millennia old lace-up technology we are all used to. With BOA you simply turn a knob to tighten or pull the knob to release.
The REV’IT! Expedition GTX has extreme performance in mind with its Dynamic Support Frame that performs more like a Motocross boot. This technology gives you the ultimate in flexibility and stability, keeping you protected from an ankle injury in extreme conditions. REV’IT! has covered the entire upper of the boots with Superfabric® for even more abrasion resistance than you’re likely to ever need in that area.
The REV’IT! Expedition GTX boots have the normal protection features you expect in a motorcycle boot. There are ankle protection, a heel cup, and a reinforced toe box. There is even SeeSoft™ protection on the tongue so if you take a stinger on the shin that nails the BOA knob through the thick shin guard you’ve got some padding to absorb the hit on the backside of the impact as well. There is also reflective material at the heel of the boots for nighttime visibility.
Key to performance on and off the bike, the REV’IT! Expedition GTX boot has a Vibram® Apex sole. This sole is stiff in the instep where you need it on the bike. But it also has enough flex that you can comfortably walk around in the boots off the bike and the various tread patterns should help you maintain traction on just about any surface within reason. The boots also look like a normal hiking style boot.
The REV’IT! Expedition GTX boots are the ultimate adventure/dual sport boot for riders that want something that will perform as well on the bike as at the destination and that is designed for extreme riding. The Gore-Tex membrane will keep your foot dry and comfortable. If you show up with these boots on, everyone will know you’re serious about hitting the trails. :: Mike, 07/28/2022
