Alpinestars S-MX 6 Boots

Posted on: September 16th, 2013 by Road Rider MCA

With the launch of the new S-MX 6, Alpinestars has planted their flag in a boot segment long left vacant – at the intersection of track-level protection and street comfort with a sub-$300 price tag. Within the top ten boot brands, the S-MX 6 touches ground as the lowest priced boot with an articulating, hinge-style ankle bracing system. And Alpinestars has introduced a host of other new innovations for the S-MX 6, making it a bullseye for sport riders.

In the Alpinestars boot lineup, the S-MX 6 fills the void between the Alpinestars S-MX 5 and the beefy, track-ready S-MX Plus. It builds on the comfort and low-profile look of the ever-popular sport-touring and light track riding S-MX 5. But the S-MX 6 boasts a larger flex zone of accordion-stitched material on the forefoot and achilles, and a new and improved foam and Lycra comfort footbed.

Inspired by the ankle-brace design on the S-MX Plus, the newly-designed S-MX 6 ankle brace provides lateral structural integrity, protection against impact shocks, and additional hinged support in flex zones. Reinforced and redesigned heel, shin, and calf areas blend track-level protection with the sleek design of an everyday boot. The S-MX 6 also features a totally new toe slider design with a much more user-friendly set-screw attachment.

The S-MX 6 boots are sure to be winners for all those track riders and street riders who have been waiting for a boot that doesn’t break the bank, but delivers a high level of protection along with everyday comfort.
