SIDI - THE CHOICE OF MOTOCROSS LEGENDS
For more than 40 years SIDI boots have been worn by some of the most awesome motorcycling legends the world has ever seen. Names like Giacomo Agostini, Joel Robert and Steve Baker, from a golden era of bikesport, have won domestic and world titles, all in association with SIDI.
Couple past success with the current leading riders who all benefit from SIDI’s class-leading boot technology, and you have a company which has a racing heritage second to none - and it is still a family-run business! As the family say themselves, SIDI is: “A brand proud of decades-long history, we have added a passion for style that only two-wheel riders have.”
SIDI was founded in 1960 by Italian cyclist Dino Signori. In the beginning, he ran a craftman’s workshop, specialising in mountain sports footwear but moved into cycling and motorcycling in the late 1960s.
In the early days, SIDI manufactured boots for such luminaries as Giacomo Agostini and motocross legend Joel Robert. This continued for much of the 70s with the invention of the Professional Motocross boot, later named Super Pro in 1980. Then, SIDI manufactured the Cecotto Racing boot with an upper made from boarded leather and a leather insole stitched on the sole and back zip fastener.
In 1986, the Royal Motocross boot introduced a new raised point protection system which determined the evolution of deflector system. A year later, SIDI became one of the first companies to put its faith in Lorica, a new synthetic material, very similar to leather but more consistent in quality for use in mass production.
