The new Tech 5has a handful of colors available. This bad boy is coming in just under that $300 mark. Alpinestars looking at it's line, they said "I have entry-level Tech 3." They said, "I have badass, nearly pro level Tech 7." How can we steal D.N.A. from the Tech seven and give it and package it in a more attainable chassis?
This is the Tech 5, much more Tech 7 than it is Tech 3. It is a new school style, off-road boot really falling in the middle of the pack from Astars. Think of it as like an S.M.X. 6 for the off-road universe. Now you're gonna immediately home in on the Tech 5 and look at it compared to that three and say there's massive upgrades here. Much more low profile toe box. You're seeing the mono fuse polymer design, which really molds this last in one piece of multiple density, or multiple durometer P.U. that goes all the way around.
Massive protection scheme. You're gonna notice right out of the gates, it's a new school style buckle system that we've only really ever seen on the top-end of the food chain. It's the self-cleaning buckles. Now instead of going full alloy like they do in the Tech 7 or the Tech 10, they're polymer and aluminum. Again self-cleaning, self-adjusting. You'll notice on the back, huge area of elasticated bellows that go all the way up for comfort. When we move to the inside, again you're getting this P.U. area that goes all the way up the medial side, all the way to the top of this heat shield. Tech 3 doesn't have it.
Again you're talking about only $50 more. So again, tremendous bang for the buck here, and you're getting a bio-mechanical hinge on the medial side, single hinge. If you went Tech 7, you'd get dual hinge but again great, rock solid, protective M.X. boot right in the meat and potato sweet spot from a functionality standpoint. Again you're getting it for a tremendous amount of bang for the buck for the sub $300 range.
The other thing I'm gonna call out is this is the first boot we see in the Astars' lineup. When you get past the Tech 3, that has a replaceable sole. Now you can do it yourself. You can send it to Astars, but the way that it's mold and designed, they'll absolutely resole it for you for a small fee, so again increasing the longevity of the boot.
A quick not on fitments. It's gonna be American cut from Alpinestars. No surprises there. It's not waterproof and it is really high. It's meant to be comfortable. Again this is putting your foot in lockdown mode if you're supercrossing or motocrossing again keeping you safe, keeping you stable and keeping you supported while you really beat on the bike and on your body in off-road conditions. If you're concerned about fitment, remember we ship free for $39. This is American cut. No issues here. I love to hear your gut reaction. Click here. Subscribe with us at RevZillaTV.

Now as we dive into the boot itself after you've heard really the key upgrades over that Tech 3, you're gonna look at it, we're gonna see classic elements from Alpinestars. We're gonna walk through 'em a little bit more. So again remember it's that mono fuse sole design. It's one-piece. they do these on our higher end boots like the Tech 7 and the Tech 10. Get multiple desnitieis. It's again this huge rubber panel that's molded that then has microfiber, which is synthetic leather on the inside. Nice big shift panel, notice the big heel counter, and again very, very stiff but very low profile. It's gonna work well within your controls.
Now as you move your back, you're gonna see raised areas of dual recess stitched P.U. all the way up, so again protection and rigidity as you move up the boot, and as we move to the sole, we're gonna stick with it, notice the big heel counter, as well as ankle and heel cockpit working there. Again very stiff, really meant to take a beating.
Now moving up the outside, again notice these are adjustable buckles. They move the instep buckle on top of the boot to get it out of harms way from sheering if you have a low side type crash on the lateral side of the boot. As you work your way up, you're gonna see again protector properties, very, very beefy. What I really like here that they've done is they've nestled these guys on top of these elasticated bellows that'll give you a lot of flex and comfort. Notice on the front of this, there's this big area, this big flap that comes over but look how beefy the T.P.U. is on the shin plate. actually worked it in a very cool and aggressively with the Astars logo. So again this big, polymer, self-adjusting buckle really just kinda works it's way right into that logo.
Now we talked about the top, again you're gonna get multiple densities on the Tech 7. This would be a softer density. This would be a harder density. You have great ankle protection that's really baked in here. The top of the boot is very, very simple. It comes up. It's high. It has a microfiber from a wicking standpoint. I'm gonna open it up and give you a shot of it really quickly as I open my boot.
Again the beauty of the self-cleaners is that they're so simple to get done. Even if they're completely caked with mud, they just pop right off and they self-adjust. If I open this bad boy up right now, you're gonna see as it comes apart, there's my entry and exit point from the lateral side. Notice the gater I have here to keep mud and some guts out, but again it's not gonna be a waterproof boot. If we look towards the inside, it's gonna be a microfiber or wicking material. Remember, a handful of different colors available from Alpinestars. This is the Tech 5 under $300 and for again about $50 more than a Tech 3. I really think this is the Tech 3 killer. I think this is a so much more boot than anybody that's leaning to spend just over $200 should go up that $50 to spend just under $300.
