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.
The system features a double upper. The inner part uses a special construction of open edges and an upper collar fitted with an elastic band to adapt perfectly to the shape of the leg offering excellent comfort. This inner part works in synergy with the outer structure that , equipped with the Adjustable Fit System, wraps the calf, respecting its anatomy and offering a wide range of adjustment. This part can be personalised depending on individual needs with the aid of a Velcro band positioned on the side.
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.

Durably waterproof and breathable
Optimized climate comfort for moderate conditions
Moderately insulating for nominal heat retention
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.
