Almost every component of the Supertech R Boot, Alpinestars definitive racing boot as worn by a roster of champions past and present, has undergone a rigorous program of upgrades to sharpen its performance features even further. Featuring innovations derived using feedback from Alpinestars involvement in top flight racing, key elements include a newly redesigned front flex area, a redesigned rear bellow, a redesigned top gaitor, a new shifter and shin plate, a new shin slider and a new inner bootie, all of which enhance the comfort, protection and the performance of this boot to a new class-leading high.$649.95
From the storied heritage of TCX’s racing line, the TCX RT Race Boots are their most streamlined track boot to date. With a strong and lightweight microfiber construction, the TCX RT Boots maintain protection with a lighter, more comfortable feel. The toe slider, shift pad and closure strap are formed from polyurethane, which is used in conjunction with magnesium to form the heel slider and with iron mesh intake vents to create the shin plate. The over-injected front and side panels allow easy step-in, and the FFC (Fasten Fit Control) with internal laces joined to the boot lining results in a precise, secure fit that maximizes protection. In the ankle, the TCX R T Race Boots feature the DFC (Double Flex Control System) to allow lateral and longitudinal movements only within physiological limitations, while preventing excess torsion and minimizing risk of injury. For the track rider seeking Italian race boots without compromise in either ergonomics or protection, the TCX RT-Race Boots are an excellent choice.
