The 2009 AXO DART follows in the footsteps of the very successful PRIME off-road boot. The DART takes aim at the style, feature and value conscious off-road and motocross rider and racer.

Designed and developed in California with patterns and 3D molding produced between Italy and the USA the DART combines the fit and performance heritage of European footwear with the aggressive style of American Motocross.

The unique shape of the calf and shin plate act as a open cell absorption chamber allowing impacts and blows to deform the plastic and lessen the force directed to the leg.

By using PU coated leathers, perforated materials and foam-backed synthetics on the outer construction, the weight of the DART is substantially less than the others.

The shape and location of the side struts allow complete freedom of movement forward and back while limiting the side-to-side rotation that results in twisted ankle injuries.

A 3D stitched instep and heel panel flexes freely while the compression of materials limits unwanted under and over stretch. 4 Injected Lever Locking buckles are replaceable and float over the base materials for easy self-centering.

A brushed leather burn guard and a shape specific die cut rubber gaiter combine with the supportive medial plastic. The lining of the DART features open cell foams, expanded mesh panels and multi-layered and positioned foam padding.

The non-slip heel pocket holds your foot in the boot reducing the chance of blisters.

A removable foot bed, molded mid sole, steel shank and unique molded and bonded AXO sole finish the boot with a secure platform to guard the foot from foot peg impacts.
