In 1993 Kevin Schwantz became World Champion wearing a pair of Alpinestars GP PRO boots – and to mark the 25th anniversary since the Texan’s historic title, Alpinestars has unveiled a new pair of Limited Edition Kevin Schwantz Supertech R’s.
No one typifies the all-or-nothing, knife-edge, racing of the 90s like Kevin Schwantz. Hailing from Houston, Texas, his background in motocross gave him the skills to battle shoulder to shoulder out on the tarmac, with his own unique style. And, to celebrate 25 years since his World Championship win, Alpinestars has unveiled a pair of boots inspired by the GP Pro boots he wore on that very day.
Designed and developed to the highest technical standards, the new Schwantz Supertech R Boots represent the pinnacle of racing innovation for track and road use. Every component is meticulously engineered for high performance protection, precision and flexibility – while offering speed and style, giving fans the opportunity to show their Texas spirit by wearing their favourite rider’s boots.
The Supertech R incorporates a range of innovations, including a redesigned compound rubber sole, an ergonomically profiled shin plate, a redesigned front flex area, plus the pioneering dual torsion, bio-mechanical ankle brace – all of which enhance the podium winning performance of this CE certified boot.
