    Helmet, knee braces and boots are items you should not cheap out on.
    Before the reacts I had SG10's. I tore them going over the bars in my last quad crash. Insurance paid out and I didnt replace everything as I should have. Not sure if you rate the SG10 as a high end boot.

    Speak to @Clint1801 about SG12's. He broke his foot in a very bad way in a brand new pair 2 years ago more or less

    There's a point with kit that I reckon the protection factor is there. I agree that cheap kak doesnt offer the protection high end stuff does, but there's also a limit at where the mid priced stuff offers the same I reckon.

    I rate this isnt something either of us can scientifically prove as we can goon about various scenarios. Clint bailed after messing up a wheelie at a very low speed and his foot came off second best while wearing what would be one of the if not the best boots on the market. I have personally come off a superbike after a failed wheelie at close on 200 kays an hour and lost some skin, not one broken bone, didnt even need to go to hospital. I was wearing no protection excepting a helmet. Way too many variables to argue what kit does what.

    Shit can happen, but I feel more confident I have top of the line boots then entry level boots.
    I used my instincts for a year then tried on my Tech 3's just to see how they felt. I could believe how soft they were and how they'd fold in any direction with ease.

    Correction "rode" I dont own a quad anymore. Or wait, do the kids' two LT50's count?

    Odd that, I would have pegged the tech 3 as a good boot? Even the tech 1. Yes entry level price, but good nonetheless.

    I shoudl speak to your sponsors for SG12's perhaps

    He just needs to ride with his feet on the pegs and not in the ground. Then he won't have to replace soles every two weeks.

    17' models and up are bad! They chew through soles way faster then the 16' and downwards.

    So I sikaflexed the sika out of my soles yesterday afternoon, will check the results tonight.

    Placed a thick layer and duct taped it proper, worked surprising well for a 'makeshift' clamp while the glue is drying.

    I got some on my hand, its not coming off...

    Spotted a 17 at factory racing yesterday, saw that the pegs were much more aggressive.
