Monza Imports sent us the following information on this new release from Alpinestars:


The CE certified Tech 8 RS boot continues the legacy of continuous development and improvement started in the mid-1990s, and combines premium materials and innovative design for a boot with unrivalled levels of safety and performance.

A breathable inner ankle sleeve and class-leading closure system enhances comfort and fit when riding the toughest tracks, while Alpinestars dual density sole is further developed for durability and is easily replaceable.

Upper constructed from a combination of full grain leather and innovative and light microfiber that is flexible and abrasion resistant. Alpinestars inner ankle sleeve is constructed from leather with 3D mesh panels and incorporates adjustable shock absorbing gel inserts on the ankles and a removable anatomic footbed for enhanced comfort, fit and protection on the ankle and lower leg.

Alpinestars exclusive high grip, dual density rubber outsole includes footpeg area which is reinforced with hard polymer compound for durability and comfort. The outsole is fully replaceable along with a reinforced lateral flex zone above the ankle to help prevent torsion.

The contoured shin plate injected with high modulus polymer for superior impact and abrasion resistance is perforated for ventilation. In addition the contoured calf protector plate is injected with high modulus polymer for impact resistance. Extended, internal protection plates are constructed from injected polymer to guard the ankle and lower foot as well as the toe‐box area.

The advanced closure system features strong techno-polymer buckles for easy adjustability with a precise, secure and streamlined fit. Top and bottom reverse closure design provides superior impact security and improved fit.

A low profile toe is featured for improved control and sensitiveness in the shift area. A full‐length, sculpted rubber panel on the inner side of the boot gives superb grip against the bike and is insulated with aluminum foil for improved heat resistance. Instep and Achilles flex zones provide superior comfort, control and support.

A replaceable kick starter protection insert is located on the right boot, along with a stamped steel sole and heel guard. The soft, polymer gaiter provides effective seal around the top of the boot, preventing excessive water and dirt entry.

Breathable 3D tech mesh lining reduces heat buildup and improves comfort, while the contoured tempered steel shank is over injected inside the mid‐sole assembly for rider safety and support.

The Alpinestars Tech 8 RS boot comes in at a recommended retail price of $549.95 and is available in a range of new colours. Head to for more information and stockist listings.
