  1. I need help finding Alpinestars Tech 10 LE Nations Boots 2018 (red, white, & blue) in a size 12. I have not been able to find anyone who is willing to sell. I would really like to buy these to give to my boyfriend as a present. He has been looking for these for so long. If anyone knows someone with a pair in a size 12 that is willing to sell please send them my way. They could be new or used as long as they are in decent condition. If anyone knows any places I could buy them at also let me know. Thank you so much!
  2. Hi, I bought my helmet (Scorpion EXO-AT950) and my gloves (Icon Patrol Gloves). But I have no idea which boots, jacket and pants I should get. I will mostly commute to school and work (well when everything comes back to normal) and do some trail riding during the weekends sometimes. The problem is I don't know what boots, jacket and pants would be the best for under 600$ CAD (Canadian). I heard textile is the best of both worlds (Mesh - Textile - Leather) and that the prices are usually pretty good on them for the pants and jackets. The boots, I have no idea. If you guys have any suggestions of gear I should get I'd really appreciate it. By the way my bike is a 1992 Honda XR250L. I love it so much (even tho it's kick start but it starts very well so no complaints 😂). Thank you!
  3. Hi, I recently picked up a 1992 Honda XR250L and I bought myself a helmet (Scorpion EXO-AT950) and gloves (Icon Patrol gloves). But the only part I'm stuck at, is the boots. I'm gonna use the bike to go to school but also to go do some pretty technical nasty trails in Quebec. The thing is I don't know what kind of boots I should get. Those dual sport boots like the Alpinestar Corozal or the Sidi, etc are too expensive for my budget. I know I probably need a full height boot. A friend recommended me to buy motocross boots since they're better in quality and a lot cheaper then ADV boots. My budget is 300$ CAD and the boots I was looking at are the Alpinestar Tech 3 Enduro and the Fox Comp 5 or Comp 2019. I was wondering which one would be the best option. If you guys have any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them! Thanks! Here's the links to the boots I'm currently looking at: https://fortnine.ca/en/alpinestars-tech-3-enduro-boots https://fortnine.ca/en/fox-racing-comp-5-offroad-boots https://fortnine.ca/en/fox-racing-comp-boots-2019

    SIDI PRESENTS THE ATOJO SRS - DEVELOPED WITH INPUT FROM THE TEAM OF SIDI CHAMPIONS, THIS NEW BOOT IS EVEN MORE LIGHTWEIGHT AND FUNCTIONAL. n order to consistently provide a rider with good steering perception and a feeling of perfect synchronicity with their motorcycle, a motocross boot must be resistant, comfortable and produced with the highest quality materials. ATOJO SRS is the new motocross boot designed and developed by Sidi specifically to meet these requirements. This innovative boot contains all the essential features that a motocross boot must have. Furthermore, this boot weighs significantly less compared to previous models, yet hasn’t compromised performance, comfort or protection. The height of the boot, as well as other details, fully reflect the demands of the professional athletes. This boot has been forged based on the needs of champions. It was Sidi riders who contributed to creating and testing this model. Working alongside Sidi technicians, Alessandro Lupino contributed his significant experience to the development of this boot and each particular detail. The nine-time World Champion Tony Cairoli gave us valuable advice that helped our specialists perfect important features. Fnally, after his success in the MX2 class, the young, up-and-coming phenomenon Jorge Prado can’t wait to fly with this new boot on his motorbike in the MXGP.

    While searching for boots I ran across these online, only available from one store in Germany, FC-moto.DE. The boots had many features which attracted my attention including a lug tread sole which would be beneficial during muddy and soggy single track riding. They were priced very reasonably and the brand was known to me from years back. The brand has since been sold to a Chinese conglomerate but they continue to produce gear. This product has absolutely zero online presence which raised flags but thankfully I had some dollars to spare and decided to take the risk. The shipper provide a tracking information and was able to ship the package from Germany to USA within one week. Very happy with shipping timeline The product is described as having: 1.68 mm suede leather with PU coating Rubber outside waterproof and breathable membrane lining TPU thermoplastic polyurethane plastic shin guard Outside/inside plastic Heel counter for protector Velcro closure Metal toe Replaceable buckle certified to EN 13634.2017 “protection footwear for motorcycle riders” Sizing is in European and was recommended by the seller has one size up. I am a size 10 US and opted for a size 44 route. Fit is comfortable And adjustable using straps. The boots are brand new and do require break and so I will update this review with further information as I wear them in. So far, I do like what I see with regards to the quality of these boots

Micro-adjustable and repleceable Alu-buckles. Heavy-duty leather heat-shield. Dual-density rubber sole with reinforced arch support.
  7. Here’s a picture of my old and new Alpinestars. 25 years is a long time for boots so I bought a new pair of Alpinestars Tech 5s. In the second picture you can see the damage to what was a mint condition side cover. Both sides now look this way. I could go on about how much I love the old and hate the new but my question is, What boots will give me the feel I’m used to, not scratch my bike all up and have a sown-on sole, protect my feet. No ski boot types please, the tech 5s Make my foot go to sleep and I can’t feel anything. I ride woods, trails in Colorado with occasional MX track for fun. Want comfort for 50-80 miles of trails. I ride a Honda XR650L set up for 90 percent off road. Thanks

    O'Neil M10 MX boots
  9. I just bought a pair of fox instincts 2nd hand in good condition, however the seller didn't tell me that the lower strap on one of the boots is broken off completely. To race at a track in France your boots have to be inspected and be in good condition, which is exactly why I bought these as my sg10s aren't in good condition. Does anyone know if it's possible to replace the entire strap? I can't find anything online and it's very frustrating as I just spend a good amount on them and they are useless to me without the strap. The first two photos are of the boot with the missing strap and the third is of the other boot which has nothing wrong with it (just for reference). Any help/ideas would be appreciated!

    Unparalleled Flex Control: A breakthrough innovation for the Tech 10 is the introduction of Alpinestars patented Frontal Flex Frame. Combining with the dual front and rear blade connectors, the Frontal Flex Frame gives the Tech 10 a complete and seamless flexion control system, from the foot shell all the way up to the shin plate, offering high performance double motion control, preventing over-compression and hyper-extension, featuring: Engineered frontal flexion control offered by a dual-density TPU connector system, uniting the lower buckle plate with the upper blade connector, buckle and shin protector. Engineered to 'float' freely between the lower and upper boot construction, 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. Asymmetrical, dual pivot arms on boot frame. 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. Asymmetrical medial and lateral double pivot system for improved levels of flexibility and precision for both independent and synchronized movement. The medial pivot arm's higher placement reduces material volume in the lower part of the boot, creating more space for the patented inner ankle brace system to have free movement and improve control. Reducing the volume on the inner side also reduces abrasion, where the boot is in contact with the bike and improves grip and feel. Redesigned dual-density TPU rear blade system engineered to prevent hyperextension while offering improved flex control and impact resistance. DCHP - Unique Heel Protection Innovation: 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. DCHP features a directional impact protection system which significantly reduces the effect of excessive, potentially injury-causing, energy being transferred to the ankle and lower leg. DHCP has been used by Alpinestars athletes in the demanding environments of professional Supercross and Motocross. New Inner Ankle Brace: One the Tech 10's defining features is the redesigned biomechanical inner ankle brace. Patented technology which features: Lighter, anatomically redesigned medial and lateral torsion arms which are compact and offer increased range of movement and control. In conjunction with the outer boot chassis, the ankle brace gives vertical and lateral protection from ankle and leg compression and rotation and progressive damping of torsional forces during an accident, while still allowing natural freedom of movement. Double pivot system allows the Tech 10 to retain its integrity while flexing which removes the need for alternative torsion bars for varying ankle widths and crucially gives the essential progressive resistance to rotational and vertical forces which, otherwise, are so damaging to ankles, knees, upper legs and pelvis if not arrested in a controlled way. New low-profile, pull-on design for reduce material build, less weight and to facilitate easier and quicker wearing. Innovative flexion inserts work seamlessly with new Tech 10's flex support system for ultimate in performance. TPU protection and shock-absorbing padding on the heel and ankles and an ultra-thin and flexible forefoot area for increased sensitivity and control. Dual compound removable anatomic footbed includes EVA for comfort and support and aids even weight distribution. Anatomical Shin and Calf-Plates: The Tech 10 design is slimmer and more streamlined with a contoured calf protector ergonomically wrapping around the rear leg. Constructed from a dual-density compound and combined with the rear blade system, protection is enhanced with progressive dampening of excessive torsional forces. The energy dissipating shin plate features a new anatomic design for reduced surface area and weight-saving. Unique Sole Integration: Completely redesigned sole with proprietary grip sculpturing to improve foot-peg performance, grip and mud and water run-off. Exclusive dual-compound sole is seamlessly integrated to the multi-density foot base structure with built-in support. The sole offers superior durability, grip and feel while riding and improved performance on shifter. The central sole insert features micro-grip and side hooking grip design. It is easily replaceable and Alpinestars offers a full sole replacement and boot repair service. Buckle Closure System: Anatomically optimized redesigned for weight-saving and ergonomics the new triple buckle closure system features a nylon and fiberglass compound for improved durability and strength. New slim-line buckles include high-impact bridge closures which are cold forged for precision and strength. The closure system features contra-closure, doubling closure security and a quick-release / locking system with self-aligning, memory, design for easy, precise closure and improved riding performance and security. All buckles are easily replaceable. Innovative, Lightweight Upper Construction: The Tech 10 chassis combines advanced lightweight microfiber and impact and abrasion-resistant TPU shell. Foot shell features five different compounds in a single lightweight piece to offer strength while maintaining flexibility and structural integrity. Foot shell incorporates heel and toe protection that is highly resistant to abrasion and impact and adds to the boot's overall durability. Foot shell also includes integrated shank for support and structural integrity. Frontal protection features a dual closure system with an internal microfiber flap, plus hook-and-loop fasteners for a precise fit closure beneath the buckle giving greater, micro-adjustable, precision which is convenient to operate. Soft microfiber gaiter helps seal out excessive water and dirt entry. Poly-fabric lining with 3D open cell foam incorporates anti-slip suede in heel area, keeping the foot located inside the boot. The Tech 10 boot is CE certified.

  16. Hello all. New year = new boots. I'm buying new boots and have narrowed the search to FOX Comp 8's or Alpinestar Tech 7's. I realize there are better boots and more choices but these are the two I've settled on. I'm a learning weekend rider and spend most of my time at a small private SX type track. Need help deciding which is the better boot for me. I'm not worried about fit, I've tried on both and like the fit about the same. I've seen several reviews for the Tech 7's but very few for the Comp 8's. Anyone have any input?
  17. Ok guys a gals what ya score for Xmas moto related ? I got some Scott gogs for big faces Dirt bike mag in stocking And a gift card to holeshot Motorsports Thinking Kenda equilibrium rear tire for the winter gnar
  18. I'm still pretty new to offroad riding, and now I'm thinking seriously about some killer, hot-weather dirt bike pants. Yes, I know it's winter right now. I can save some money if I get the version of the pants that are designed to be slim at the ankle so that you can tuck it down inside your motorcycle boots. However I'm a little worried that this will make my lower legs and boots hotter. My guess is that if you wear your pants over your motorcycle boots, this will block the sun from hitting them and they won't cook my feet as much. However that extra looseness might be somewhat of a liability if it gets caught on something, like a foot peg, or branches along the trail. So what does the Thumpertalk community think on this topic?

  20. As it turns out I'm hard on boots. Most don't last me a year. Latest two pairs were the Gaerne gx-1 and Forma dominators. The gx-1 wore out quick and had no side protection. Flimsy is how I would describe them. The formas are my current boots. Despite liking the protection, they are tearing on both sides of each boot behind the hinge. Big holes have formed and its progressing quick. The formas are the heaviest boots I have ever owned and tried on, I wouldn't mind a lighter boots. So far I'm looking at the Sg-10s, tech 7 and g-reacts. I like the sidis but they are a touch out of my range unfortunately. Hoping to find a boot that offers protection, that are hinged and that will hopefully last longer. Any info would be appreciated.
  21. Hi there riders, this is my first guide of how to keep clean new white boots. Personally i love white boots, looks great and is a little less heat on your feet, but they are very dirty specialty if you ride in desert of mud trails, clean the white boots are hard and more yet if you what to take off that marks from oil, branch or yellow marks from heat. Well saying that this is a guide to clean up all that marks, using my brand new Alpinestars Tech 7 Patriot. (NOTE: THIS IS A SIMPLE GUIDE BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE, I NOT ASSUME ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS, I WILL TEACH YOU THE ONLY METHOD THAT I KNOW AND THAT WORKS FOR ME) You will need: 1 sponge 1 micro fiber towel 2 sheet of sand papers, (220 IS THE MAX THAT YOU CAN USE ON THE BOOTS, ANY UP FROM THERE YOU WILL SCREW HIM) 1 brush. STEP 1:Use 1 liter of water and put some dish soap on it, make sure and enough soap for keep some lubrication. STEP 2: In other 1 or 2 liters of water use again dish soap for clean up your boots, this step use the sponge for take off all the dirt and maybe some marks that are easy to clean, always keep your boot in your arm poting down the area where your leg comes in, this prevents that the water fall inside of the boot. STEP 3: Take off all the soap with clean water. STEP 4: At this point you will see all the hard marks, and depend how deep it is or how hard to sand it is you will use your sand paper, maybe you can sand paper it with 600 or less. STEP 5: To take off the marks, get the sand paper with the soapy water and with your 2 middle fingers put pressure on the sand paper and begin to moving in one direction, NEVER ON CIRCLES, always keep the sand paper lube with water for avoid any scratch beyond the area that you are cleaning. STEP 6: Avoid any surface with gloss finish, usually this areas the scratch are rare or the gloss areas on the boots are minimum STEP 7: After you finish with all the hard marks, i recommend give another clean with the sponge to get a better finish STEP 8: When you finish with the final wash, take your micro fiber towel and dry the boot in any area possible, after you finish the dry, let the boot dry by himself on the shadow, NEVER ON THE SUN, leave it on the sun damage your colors. And you are done, PLEASE PEOPLE AND AGAIN, this works for me, and i wanna share with you guys, is not an attempt of trolling or some bullshit, if is work for you, please let me know, hope this can help a lot of people out there, be safe and braaaap!

With the exclusive Dual Flex system and the four floating, independent straps the Crossfire can provide each rider with a personal fit no matter his body shape or if he uses knee braces or not. Adjustable Calf System: Sidi’s exclusive, patented, adjustable calf system allows the rider to adjust the diameter of the Crossfire boot at the calf. This system, along with longer upper straps, allows the Crossfire boot to accommodate riders with larger calves easier than any other boot now available. The Crossfire can accommodate riders with up to a 22-inch calf diameter 14 inches above from the bottom of their heel. The inner plastic plate is made of two different materials; a rigid one to support the boot and a heat resistant one to protect the rider’s leg from exhaust heat. All components of this system are fully replaceable and are available in a wide variety of colors. Heel Detail: Three extended ribs are featured at the back of the boot to assist the rider in making upshifts with his heel when starting a race. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection. Non-Bootie Designs: Sidi boots do not incorporate inner booties into their design, and for good reason. Booties make the design larger and cumbersome; add to the boot’s thickness, which interferes with shifting, plus the inner booties retain body heat affecting the rider’s performance and comfort. Buckles: Sidi’s exclusive cam-lock buckle system is acknowledged as the finest system on the planet. It must be as most of Sidi’s competitors have attempted to copy various aspects of it. The cam-lock buckle system incorporates a strap memory retention system. Adjust the straps once and they will be at the same position for every ride after that! No more readjusting for every ride or mid-day during a ride. Toe Areas: The tip of the toe is covered with plastic to protect the base material and seams against abrasion from brush etc. Plastic shift and brake lever guards on the top of each foot area. Heat Shields: Each Sidi boot is equipped with an anti-heat undressed leather protection panel at the same height of most motorcycle’s exhaust heat shields. Composite Insole: Sidi is the only manufacture to use a composite insole that is anatomically shaped to the rider. A cushioned liner is provided that can be removed if the rider desires a more roomy fit. Sidi does not use steel shanks riveted to its insole like most manufactures, details such as this enable Sidi boots to enjoy a multi year service life versus the competitors multi month lifespan as over time, a steel shank can deteriorate, rust and fracture exposing the rider to injury. Lorica: Every Crossfire TA outers is fully constructed with Lorica a composite micro fiber material created from strands less than one thousandth the thickness of silk. When injected with special resins, these fibers act like natural leather skin, but with the addition of better strength, softer texture, lighter weight and better moisture protection. Lining: Cambrella is a lining that, due to its particular polyimide structure, guarantees a rapid drying rate after the boot gets wet or seaty. This prevents the onset of mold forming which extends the boots lifespan dramatically. The Teflon treated mesh panels in the rear calf area of the boot allow humidity to escape while the boot is in use.
  24. Hey all, Been thinking about this post for a fair while now. On May 15th I received some new gear (boots and chest protector) in the mail. I geared up and drove down to my local xc/mx track to try out my new gear. I did not contact my buddies as as was going for an "easy" ride. VERY luckily there was other riders at the track and two of them took me through a new part of the xc track. I would estimate my skill level at basic to medium as I am just getting back to riding at 46. The accident: I was in between the two other guys when I came out of a corner and clipped (that's what I tell my wife and friends) I hit a small try tree that stopped the bike dead. I came off the bike and must have placed my left foot down first as it took all the force. I ended up with class VI tibia plateau fracture of my left leg. After 5 weeks I now know this was a pretty serious fracture. I am laid up for the whole summer. No weight bearing for 3 months. Spirits are good and always have a great attitude, thank god for a great family!!! The IMPORTANT lesson which we all know and I want to re-iterate is under NO reason never ride alone. (Period) For those concerned...the bike is fine 🙂 . It's driving me crazy that it is dirty and I can't wash it yet 🙂. Jeff in Ontario
  25. Is there anything that can be done to prevent a yearly repeat of yesterday? How many days before the race do these guys arrive to the area? Seems like it's never been a secret that JA21 struggles in thin air,so why wouldn't the team ship him straight to Colorado to acclimate as soon as he took his boots off at Glen Helen? Not working as hard or testing for a week seems like it would be better than a DNF and a DNS. I'm a fan of Andersons,but it seems like a championship may never be in reach if the series continues to have a round in CO and he has this monkey on his back. Could he wear a backpack of some kind and pump extra oxygen into his helmet? If possible,would it even be legal(I doubt it)? Might this hurt his value when future contracts come around?
