The Alpinestars SMX-Plus boots are high-spec race boots which are also suitable for road riding. They have been developed with feedback from top racers, creating an incredible CE-approved boot which will please the most demanding of riders. With extensive armour, including Alpinestars' unique Multi Link Control ankle support, these boots are highly effective in terms of protection.
The upper of the SMX-Plus boots is constructed from a high-tech microfibre material, which compares very favourably to more traditional leather. Offering the same abrasion resistance and durability, with lighter weight and less imperfections, microfibre is the intelligent choice for high-end motorcycle boots. This material is also highly breathable, enabling moisture to evaporate.
Alpinestars have used a combination of materials to line the SMX-Plus boots, in order to achieve high comfort levels and effective protection. The ankle area features a highly breathable, comfortable lining. The ankle also benefits from self-moulding foam ankle protectors, which absorb the shock of impact as well as being extremely comfortable. The forefoot liner consists of a shock-absorbing open cell foam, to protect this vulnerable area.
Paired with the microfibre upper and breathable liner, the ventilation of the SMX-Plus boots is another important comfort feature. On the heel and the top of the foot, the mesh vents draw in cool air and exhaust warm air. This helps to create a cool, pleasant environment for the rider's feet.
The SMX-Plus boots use all the traditional race armour, with innovative touches that set these boots apart. The shock-absorbing heel cup is extra-wide and extends to the ankle, to provide maximum protection. The toe slider is replaceable with an easy snap-in system, offering a simple solution when this heavily used part of the boot wears down. The Alpinestars heel slider is placed in the perfect position to dissipate shock and promote sliding in the event of an accident. These boots also include a TPU shin plate and gear change pad.
As well as the usual protection, these boots feature Alpinestars' own unique Multi Link Control System. This protective spine provides enhanced support for the ankle, limiting unnatural movement and hyper-flexion in an accident. It also provides additional impact protection to the ankle and Achilles areas, finishing off the all-round protection of the SMX-Plus boots.
Flexibility is a key concern for best performance on the track. The SMX-Plus boots excel in this area, with front and back accordion panels to allow the full range of natural movement. These boots also offer a great fit, with micro-ratchet calf adjustment and an elasticated zipper panel for easy opening and closure.
The retention system of the SMX-Plus boots consists of a zipper and Velcro closure, to prevent the zipper scratching the bike or catching in an accident. The durable, evenly textured rubber sole is designed for good feedback and consistent grip.
