The Tech 10’s comfort is legendary and a key feature in making the boot a pleasure to wear in all conditions. A key objective was maintaining the boot’s feel while enhancing its performance, functionality and safety
The most significant upgrades to the Tech 10 performance are unique technologies: The Frontal Flexion Control Frame, the Asymmetrical Dual-pivot Arms, the patented Dynamic Heel Compression Protection Shock Absorber which is integrated into a redesigned foot shell and the slimmer, more streamlined, outsole.
The Tech 10 is lighter, a result of Alpinestars technicians studying all the boot components and their connections – how the boot comes together. A re-design of every single one of those components has been undertaken to reduce volume and weight.
A breakthrough innovation for the Tech 10 is the introduction of Alpinestars patented Frontal Flex Frame.
The Frontal Flex Frame acts as a shock absorber by distributing energy across the boot frame while controlling forward and rearward flex, progressively releasing force which dampens and absorbs impact energies.
A unique feature of the Tech 10 is the ankle control system developed in the outer shell construction, allowing natural ankle movement, vertical compression control and improved impact protection.
Reducing the volume on the inner side also reduces abrasion, where the boot is in contact with the bike and improves grip and feel.
Built into the Tech 10’s unique and lightweight single-piece co-injected foot chassis is the patented Dynamic Heel Compression Protector (DHCP), an innovative safety feature which includes a fully integrated collapsible heel area with expanded poly-foam to absorb high impact energies during a crash.
One the Tech 10’s defining features is the redesigned biomechanical inner ankle brace.
Lighter, anatomically redesigned medial and lateral torsion arms which are compact and offer increased range of movement and control.
Anatomical shin and calf-plates.
The energy dissipating shin plate features a new anatomic design for reduced surface area and weight-saving.
Completely re-designed sole with proprietary grip sculpturing to improve foot-peg performance, grip and mud and water run-off.
It is easily replaceable and Alpinestars offers a full sole replacement and boot repair service.
New slim-line buckles include high-impact bridge closures which are cold forged for precision and strength.
