Check out our SIDI Fusion, Fusion Air, and Fusion Rain Boots Review:
The SIDI Fusion is essentially your basic full length boot from SIDI. The Fusion is made to be able to handle the spirited sport riding, with a sport stance and cut thanks to its slimmer heel and foot-bed. You'll also notice a removable toe slider which means a track day isn't completely out of the question, though there are boots more qualified in the SIDI line up for track duty. The Fusion is made of synthetic Lorica leather, which has no imperfections and is thereby more durable and protective than traditional cowhide. On the front of the boot and rear near the Achilles tendon you'll notice stretch panels. This makes ankle movement easier and makes the boot feel a little less stiff. A shifter pad on the toe is standard throughout the SIDI boot line-up and the Fusion is no different. The malleolus (ankle bone) is protected using hard plastic protectors stitched into the boot. A big plastic deflector on the top of the boot protects the shin and a plastic heel piece protects the back of the foot. The perforated teflon-treated nylon bubble lining keeps your feet feeling comfortable in the most active of rides.
The SIDI Air Fusion is the perforated brother to the standard Fusion. The Air version is almost identical in every way with the only difference being that the air is very heavily perforated for the summer rider. If it's a 110º day in Arizona or 95º and humid in PA, this is probably a better choice over
the standard Fusion or waterproof version. When the rain starts to fall though or when the temperature drops below 50 this boot may not be the weapon of choice.
The SIDI Fusion Rain is obviously waterproof but has a few differences over the Fusion Air and Fusion standard. First off, you're loosing the toe slider so any chance the Fusion had at going to the track is gone with the Waterproof version. There's also a different liner in the waterproof, which is wicking, slightly insulated, and breathable. The waterproof breathable membrane is bonded to the outer shell, keeping precipitation out but allowing the foot to breathe.
