Alpinestars Tech 10


Alpinestars makes a lot of different motorcycle gear (and casual attire), but arguably their main claim to fame is their Tech 10 boots that have been worn on the feet of some of the world’s best motocross and supercross racers. If you check out the following features you’d think we were talking about a luxury automobile, and not motorcycle boots.


♦ Inner Ankle Brace System: The new MX ankle brace features a patented, double-hinged assembly.

This double-hinged joint allows upper and lower protective structures to protect the ankle and heel, while at the same time giving complete freedom, flexibility and feel to the rider by following the natural movements of the foot and ankle.

Further, a replaceable softer-material inner bar is included with the Tech 10. This allows the rider to customize the degree of ankle control and therefore the amount of possible stress transmitted to the knees when the boot gets into deep ruts etc. The system minimizes the chances of sprains and twists, while also protecting the ankle from lateral impacts.

The net result is a high-performance boot that is comfortable to wear, extremely strong, stable, and lightweight.

♦ The external structure of the Tech 10 features a low-profile design to minimize weight at the lower section of the boot. At the upper section of the boot, the improved controls flexibility, while streamlining the profile and offering superior grip against the bike.

♦ The inner bootie provides a maximum level of support and safety. Torsion bars control ankle and leg rotation, while allowing freedom of movement. The bootie structure features shock absorbing padding on the heel and ankles as well as a thin and flexible forefoot area for increased feeling of the controls. The perforated bootie is washable and replaceable.

♦ The construction of the lightweight upper section of the Tech 10 combines full-grain leather with and impact- and abrasion-resistant shell for unmatched levels of safety.

♦ A new and unique dual compound sole is integrated to the multi-density, foot-base structure with built-in support.

♦ The sole provides superior durability, grip, feel and a high level of structural rigidity.

♦ An advanced closure system features 3 techno-polymer and aluminum buckles for easy adjustability with a precise, secure and streamlined fit.

♦ The 3 buckle system works in conjunction with the entire internal structure to provide excellent support and flexibility.
