What is the difference between the original Sidi Crossfire and the Sidi Crossfire 2?

Tom Anderson Oct 01, 2015 12:10PM PDT

What are the main differences between the two listed models? Also, looking for a dealer between NW Montana and the Washington Coast which would have boots to try on, stopped at the dealer in Coeur d Alene, Id and they have very few boots.

Thanks in advance, Tom

This is a pretty big question. There haven’t been as many complete changes as there have been refinements. The original Crossfire had an amazingly long run and during that time SIDI collected feedback from riders the world over.

Dual Flex System
The hinged, dual position, stitch-free upper is constructed from injection-molded plastic. With the exclusive Dual Flex system and the four floating independent straps the Crossfire can provide each rider with a personal fit no matter of body shape or use with knee braces or not.

Adjustable Calf System
Sidi’s exclusive, patented, adjustable calf system allows the rider to adjust the diameter of the Crossfire boot at the calf. This system, along with longer upper straps, allows the Crossfire2 boot to accommodate riders with larger calves much easier than the previous Crossfire. The Crossfire can accommodate riders with up to a 22-inch calf diameter 14 inches above from the bottom of their heel. The inner plastic plate is made of two different materials; a rigid one to support the boot and a heat resistant one to protect the rider’s leg from exhaust heat. All components of this system are fully replaceable and are available in a wide variety of colors for the option of customizing the boot to your taste.

Heel Detail
Three extended ribs have been added at the back of the boot to assist the rider in making upshifts with his heel when starting a race. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection.

Buckles
The buckles have been redesigned with a scalloped shape that minimizes the surface area that brush could grab onto and unlatch the buckles. The cam-lock buckle system incorporates a strap memory retention system. Adjust the straps once and they will be at the same position for every ride after that! No more readjusting for every ride or mid-day during a ride
.
Toe
The tip of the toe has been completely enclosed with plastic to protect the base material and seems against abrasion from brush etc. Plastic shift and brake lever guards on the top of each foot area.

Thanks Bill; so to sum it up-it is mostly refinements.
I was told the hinge mechanism was different as well, but appears it is mainly in materials used. Unfortunately, Coeur d Alene is the only close dealer and it's a crap shoot to order online, but I appreciate the reply. I know Motosport is easy to work with but I still would not have the ability to compare the different models.

The hinge mechanism underwent a number of running changes during the original crossfire era until we settled on the enclosed pivot with removable ankle cap system you see on the Crossfire2.

I’m sorry there aren’t any other dealers more local to your area.
