Merlin Explorer Collection
The Merlin Explorer Collection has been designed to complement the rise in accessible, do-it-all motorcycles, along with the increased desire to get out and travel thanks to nearly 18 months of COVID-19 lockdowns. Also behind the design – the rise of younger motorcyclists, with Instagram’s heritage scene rapidly growing and the build-up of motorcycling in popular culture encouraging more young people to get their licences. Explorer offers rugged styling, durability and protection while incorporating the signature Merlin styling using only the best materials and components, such as Halley Stevensons® waxed cotton, D3O® armour and Cordura®.
Merlin Thor Waterproof Boot
With a cowhide leather construction backed by a Merlin-exclusive Hipora® triple liner waterproof membrane, the Thor boots are durable and ready to take on even the longest of tours. D3O® inserts in the ankles combine with the reinforced heel, toe and footbed to provide high levels of protection, while YKK® zips are used to ensure the best quality. Available in sizes UK 7-12.
Caring for your Thor boots
After each ride, ensure that all dirt and grease is wiped off the boots, and that they are dry. Then, wipe with a non-abrasion cloth. You can use a leather cleaner to restore your boots to an ‘out-of-the-box’ finish. We would always recommend testing the cleaner on an inconspicuous area of the boot first.
