When it comes to getting an entry-level motocross boot that samples top-tier features at a very manageable price point, Alpinestars’ Tech 1 Boot is a relatively new option that’s miles ahead of the competition. Big call outs start with the buckle system that’s been upgraded from the old-style buckles previously on the Tech 3, to the self-aligning and self-cleaning buckles AStars has previously only put on their Tech 7 and 10 boots.
The next big advancement is the blade system on the medial side of the boot that helps support your ankle and prevent hyperextension related injuries. This blade acts similarly to the hinge system typically found on much higher-priced boots, but this blade is so low-profile that it won’t negatively affect your interface with the bike. Pair these large features with the less-noticeable updates like the scheme of protective TPU, updated synthetic materials, and interior comfort layout, and it’s obvious that Alpinestars got ahead of the competition and is taking their entry-level boots very seriously.
