The 2019 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship heads to the Lucas Oil Stadium this weekend and Alpinestars has released the Limited Edition ‘Indianapolis’ Tech 10 boot. Inspired by the flame detailing of classic American hot rods, the boot features a distinctive black, metallic red and yellow colour scheme. You can check it out HERE!
The CE-certified Tech 10 is a technologically advanced and protective boot that incorporates innovative materials in a streamlined design for a lighter, more anatomically profiled performance. The ‘Indianapolis’ blends all of the technological properties of the Tech 10 in a striking colorway, as worn by all of the Eli Tomac, Marvin Musquin, Cooper Webb, Justin Barcia and all of the Alpinestars riders at the meeting, allowing Supercross fans to wear the same boots as their racing heroes.
The Tech 10 has set the standard for Motocross boot performance and protection for over a decade. The completely re-designed Tech 10 boot raises the performance envelope even further. While it maintains the iconic look of its predecessor, every single piece has been redesigned and tested on our top Supercross and Motocross athletes. The Tech 10 overhaul had three important priorities: functionality, performance and safety. Creative construction techniques with lighter, more durable composite materials yield a slimmer and more streamlined boot. The new Tech 10 has a greater range of movement, flexibility and support in a considerably lighter package.
All new, slim, single-piece foot chassis features an even more streamlined shape and profile. Injected with five uniquely engineered densities that dramatically reduce weight and improve performance.
