A Boot For Any Rider – The Tech 1
As the winningest motocross boots in the industry, Alpinestars has the reputation as the most technologically advanced racing boots on the market. Their strive to innovate and break boundaries doesn’t stop in their high-end boots, as they have also created an entry-level boot that builds off the Alpinestars legacy. Their latest addition to their line-up is none other than the Alpinestars Tech 1 Boots.
Tech 1 Boots- Ready for action
To start off, the new Tech 1 boots have a ton of features and look sick when you’re wearing them on your bike or ATV. These are the kind of boots you want to wear off the cuff. Personally, I would wear these Tech 1 Boots and feel pretty secure on the track, trails, or riding sand in the desert. They look sturdy and I especially like their white/yellow/red color style. Now on to the features.
These bad boys have 5 different color styles ranging from white to black/yellow and over twelve sizes with a max size of 16! It’s great that the boot has all these sizes because not everyone wears the same size boot.
As for the motocross boot construction, the upper construction is made from an innovative and light microfiber material that’s flexible and abrasion resistant. Plus, there’s light microfiber on the front and rear parts below. The toe box is made of synthetic material, and Alpinestars has an exclusive high grip outsole that is slip- resistant and sticks to the material so you don’t hit the ground.
Furthermore, everybody knows the saying ‘the more features you have, the better your gear will perform’, and for the purposes of this article, that statement couldn’t be truer. The Alpinestars Tech 1 Boots feature a ton of TPU protection plates that consist of: a contoured calf protector plate, a higher medial protector, an outer lateral ankle and a heel counter. They offer support and resistance to a broad range of standard impacts that the boots can sustain.
Safe & Sound with the Tech 1 Boots
The Alpinestars Tech 1 Boots are both CE and EN certified. They have an exclusive high grip outsole that keeps you from slipping. And a replaceable stamped steel sole guard to provide quick and effective protection for the unguarded foot. The Tech 1 boot keeps your feet flexible with redesigned instep and Achilles accordion flex zones.
Additionally, it solves excess water problems with a PU synthetic gaiter that helps seal out water and dirt entry. With so many crazy features on these boots, it’s no wonder that other brands can’t keep up with such innovation. Here is a product video from our Youtube channel explaining the Tech 1s in greater detail.
Typically, the ankle needs to be protected for professional motocross racing. Therefore, the Alpinestars Tech 1 Boots come with a rear TPR gaiter patch that is applied on top of the TPU calf protector. It gives protection and comfort on a rear flex. Your ankle will never feel safer than when they are inside of these boots. Next, we move from safety to design.
The Tech 1 Boots come with an assortment of panels like most boots do. What sets it apart is the fervent detail and innovation they put into their designs. It features a smartly designed TPR flap for a broad range of calf fit adjustment.
And the various panels for the TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) shin plate connect to the TPU protector panel. This means you can be sure that the Tech-1 will keep you contoured, comfortable and flexible in any geographical climate!
One of the hallmark things that sets the Alpinestars Tech 1 Boots apart would definitely be the buckle system. Similar to ski shoes, these boots have three buckles bearing down towards the toe. These combine with several straps and enclosures to give it a very secure and tight fit. The entire closure system includes three polymer buckles with an innovative closure system. It comprises a ratchet with memory and a quick release/locking system for easy and accurate closure. Additionally, all the buckles are replaceable.
