Alpinestars Tech 7 Boots
The Alpinestars Tech 7 has been reincarnated for 2013, and the good work of Alpinestars has rewarded riders with a whole new boot of a higher class. The brilliant new Tech 7 is a good boot gone great, and makes taking the leap from the entry-level Tech 3 to the Tech 7 a really, really easy decision.
Built for riders who demand a boot that holds up to hard riding and regular wear, the previous Tech 7s featured replaceable soles, beefed up toe and ankle reinforcement, and long-lasting aluminum buckles. But the Tech 7s for 2014 feature advancements across the board, including a lighter weight, micro-fiber upper construction that is more abrasion-resistant and flexible for even more durability.
Alpinestars has developed an articulating ankle and heel bracing system for the Tech 7, and it’s more advanced than anything offered by other manufacturers at this price level. Interfacing with accordion panelling on the heel, the hinging on the heel, and medial and lateral ankles allows for significantly improved ease of forward flexibility. Vastly improved buckles borrowed from the top-of-the-line 2014 Tech 10s operate smoothly, and make clicking in and clicking out faster and easier.
