Hebo Tech Evo 2 Trouble

8 posts in this topic

Hi all, I have been the owner of a set of Hebo Tech Evo 2 trials boots now for just over six months. However in this short amount of time i have had any problems with them.

Within at least six weeks of buying the boots the bottom buckle had came unscrewed ad fallen off leaving me with out the whole bottom strap.

My other problem is all the outside layer which i presume is leather is breaking up into scale like bits giving the boots a horrible appearance.

I am not sure why this has happened as i have taken good care of the boots and washed them after every use and kept them in my room away from the elements.

I have one slight problem which is i brought the boots from carlisle world round so did not purchase it from "instore."

Thanks for your time. AA

Firstly you need to get in touch with Hebo to get a replacement strap. It should probably have been tighter from the off but hey, these things happen. I have to remember to tighten up my Gaerne buckles every once in a while just to be on the safe side.

If the top layer of the boot is starting to 'flake' off it's not leather, it's Lorica. Not a lot you can do about this unfortunately, this is what Lorica does. Its a tough material so it's only cosmetic. Keep it treated with a good boot wax and it'll last for years.

What oil are you using to feed the leather?

Im not sure if it is leather or the oher stuff mentioned below. But i dont use oil as i like to have a ridgid boot instead of softer one.

The problem with regular washing is that you will remove any oil in the leather. Unfortunately it sounds like yours have already been damaged by this process. You could try reclaiming them with some leather grease from Heine Gericke (motorcycle clothing specialist), and apply liberally. Leave it to soak in over the course of a few days and repeat applications if it looks like it's doing the job. This treatment will make the boots a bit softer, but they will protect you better since a shagged boot is more likely to tear in an impact. I use this stuff on my Stone 3's and all my road gear, leathers boots and gloves and it is top notch. Hope this helps.

Paul.
