For champions: With US and international motocross and supercross titles to its name, the Tech 8 boot from Alpinestars has an iconic legacy. Perfect for riders who want the latest protection technology from a leading brand. Alpinestars' product development department draws on the experience of every professional athlete they support. It's with the athlete's help that they are constantly improving their products and what makes the Tech 8 boot an industry leading off-road performer.
What makes the Tech 8 different? The Tech 8 is a racing engineered, more rugged boot that needs to be "broken in". The sole side ridge provides the option for gear change and bike feedback for riders who are used to it. The behaviour as the sole flexes gives a very different feeling as the layers inside can slide on one another. Differently to the Tech 10, the Tech 8 features a rugged and robust Tyrolean double stitched sole. It provides structure to the boot as well as being durable and offers high levels of protection. The metal toe structure protects the sole to stop any of the layers flaking apart.
Innovative features: There's a full inner bootie to ensure great fit and comfort together with an innovative buckle closure system as featured on the Tech 10. The contoured shin plate allows for a great range of fitment and there's Velcro for a secure closure. The blade system incorporated into the calf and shin plate allows flex control as well as forward and rear support. The whole outer sole is replaceable, so when you invest in a pair of Tech 8's you're certainly getting your moneys worth!
It doesn't stop there! The TPU shin plate offers superior impact protection and abrasion resistance. There's extensive protection everywhere you would expect on a boot, including a steel shank inside the mid-sole. For feel, you'll notice the medial panel is textured, giving superb grip against the bike.
