The Alpinestars Tech 7 is third from top in the Italian company’s off-road boot range, and the most expensive model that doesn’t use the internal bootie. The Alpinestars Tech 7 was completely redesigned two years ago from the ground up, with the construction using a single plastic-molding enclosing the foot area.
Unique to the Tech 7 in the Alpinestars range is a hinge system allowing the boot to flex at the ankle. As well as the ease of movement, Alpinestars claims this can help reduce injuries by absorbing torsional load. The buckles were also redesigned with the release of the new Tech 7. The old-style Alpinestars buckles were rather stiff to open and close, and the new ones are a huge step forward with a light easy action and a damage-resistant design.
The all new Tech 7 Enduro Drystar boots by Alpinestars are built using the waterproof Drystar boot membrane. The boot features a specifically engineered, compound sole to provide Enduro riders superior durability, grip, feel and levels of structural rigidity. This CE certified boot promotes core stability and flex via a biomechanical pivot while offering excellent ankle protection. The boot chassis has been designed to give complete feel and optimized interaction with bike controls, while the innovative buckle system allows easy, precise closure.
