Leatt Releases New 5.5 FlexLock Boots with Ankle Lockout Tech

 Designed for seamless movement on the bike and superior protection.

Published on 12.12.2019

Protection innovators Leatt have just released their all-new 5.5 FlexLock Boots as part of their Twenty/Twenty GPX range. The new boot is designed for fluid and seamless movement on the bike with the ability to shrug off debris and impacts with ease. 

When it comes to your riding kit, a quality pair of off-road boots is one of the top pieces of gear you can invest in. As key points of contact to your bike, it’s essential that your feet, as well as your ankles and shins, stay comfortable and protected. 

Three years of development and testing with Leatt’s pro athletes from all over the world has resulted in the creation of the 5.5 FlexLock moto boot. Offered in three attention-grabbing color schemes, the boots are available in white and black, red and blue, or plain black.
