The Tech 8 Light Boots have been designed by Alpinestars to reach new levels of performance and comfort. These lightweight, dirt bike boots are filled with features that will appeal to any off-road rider. The Tech 8 Light boots have been constructed with a tear and abrasion resistant microfiber upper. The contoured shin plate protector has been injected with high modulus TPU and is also impact and abrasion resistant. The Tech 8 Light boots have various other contoured elements such as the contoured calf protector; injected with TPU for impact resistance, and the contoured rubber panel on the inner side of the boot; which provides a great contact grip with the bike. This rubber panel is laminated with aluminum foil to guard against heat. There are extended, internal, injected TPU protection plates that guard the ankle and side of the lower foot and toe box area. The toe box is low profile for improved control and sensitivity in the shift area.
These Alpinestars boots have been incorporated with instep and Achilles “flex zones” for cmofort, control, and support. They have an aluminum four buckle closure system with memory adjustment, a quick release/locking system, and a top and bottom reverse closure design for impact avoidance. On the right foot, there is a removable/replaceable kick starter protection insert. The soft TPU gaiter creates an effective seal around the top of the boot, and prevents excess water and dirt from entering. The interior of the boot is lined with a breathable, 3D tech mesh lining. There is an anatomical, fully perforated microfiber and 3D mesh inner ankle sleeve that features removable, shock absorbing, asymmetrical gel ankle protectors; as well as a removable, anatomic foot bed. The sole of the Tech 8 Light boots is composed of an exclusive high-grip, dual density rubber out-sole with replaceable inserts. A contoured, tempered steel shank has been placed in the boots for extra protection. These boots are CE certified.
