Funny you say that. I saw RC on the podium at steel city today. I specifically looked at his boots to see if he was wearing the new 10s. I am pretty sure they were 8s. Maybe he hasn't had time to break in the new 10s. :thumbsup:

I'd agree completely if there was any evidence that the tech 10's really are that much better than tech 8s or SIDI force or whatever...

but so far the only reason I've seen for the extra $150 in the price tag is because they're new and hyped. I'll take SIDI's for 120 less (and probably better boots)

The 10's should be out by mid-October, the warehouses are beginning to stock up now. RC can wear any boot he wants for sure, so I'm assuming he's just more comfortable goin' that fast in his 8's!

Don't know 'til I get mine, then I'll give a report. RC may have fit and feel issues right now, but he will more than likely come around. I'm old, so I remember the SCOTT plastic boot, had a sponsorship, and more pairs than I knew what to do with. The Scotts died because no one could feel anything, and most just gave up trying.

Alpinestars has two great boots in the Vector and Tech 8. Without ever seeing a 10, I would say it will have the best features from both. Fit and feel of the Vector, more protection than either, a lot narrower profile in the ankle area, the brace bootie, lighter than an 8 as well. Like Arai and Shoei, perfection comes at a price. I'll give them a shot!

Im about to get those 10's and am wondering do they seem the type of boot that would last 4 years (as 6 and 8's are) since they are so lightweight and fast broken in

id love some 1st hand info :)
