PRODUCT LAUNCH ALPINESTARS2014
TECH 10 MX BOOT
Alpinestars’ Tech 10 is their top-of-the-line boot, and for 2014, added
innovations make it one of the most
technical motocross boots ever
produced. Key features: The one-piece, co-injected foot chassis
incorporates five different polymer
compounds in a single piece to offer
strength and flexibility throughout the
structure with no joints.
A lightweight upper combines
full-grain leather with lightweight
microfiber and an impact- and
abrasion-resistant TPU shell.
Frontal protection features a
dual-closure system with an
internal micro-fiber flap, plus Velcro
that is attached securely with a micro-
adjustable, lightweight buckle. The
shin incorporates a TPU blade system
engineered to prevent frontal
hyperextension and offers
greater flex control. A
contoured TPU calf-
protector plate offers impact-
resistance and incorporates
Alpinestars’ innovative rear blade sys-
tem, formed with a hard, shock-resis-
tant polymer to protect the heel. It also
features a rear hyperextension guard.
The multi-density foot shell incorporates heel and toe protection and is
abrasion- and impact-resistant.
New buckle-closure system includes
aluminum bridge closures with memory
and a quick-release/locking system
with a self-aligning design for easy
closure and improved riding
performance and security. All
buckles are easily replaceable.
A biomechanical inner-ankle brace
features torsion bars to control ankle
and leg rotation while allowing freedom
of movement. These dual-connection
torsion bars offer the rider natural ankle
movement with progressive damping of
torsional forces during an accident.
The central sole insert is replaceable, and Alpinestars offers a full-sole
replacement and boot repair service. ❏
