The new Alpinestars Alloy is a shoe meant for comfort, support, and durability. This might be the first time a major motorsports safety equipment manufacturer has designed something with techs’ foot comfort in mind.
We call the Alpinestars Transition XL gear bag the mother-of-all-bags. Learn why we love this great looking and high functioning race gear bag.
In today’s video product review, Winding Road Racing’s product expert Maelstrom Kiewiet, talks about why we like the Alpinestars GP Pro auto racing suit:
With the caveat that shoes really, really have to fit to be good, we bring to your attention the Alpinestars Tech 1Z as our choice for the best fire-resistant road racing shoe for 2017.
The new suits from Alpinestars for 2017 are starting to arrive and we have stocked up to have one of the best suit selections in the country.
Racing shoes might seem rather low on the totem pole of gear priorities, but when you consider that half your inputs are going to be made with your feet, the importance of having good shoes starts to become a little more obvious. Safety is the top priority for a racing shoe design of course, but beyond flame resistance and FIA/SFI certifications, racing shoes need to be durable, comfortable, grippy, light weight, and provide as much feedback as possible. To that end, if you want the pinnacle of current racing shoe design, the 2014 Alpinestars Tech 1-Z Formula 1 shoes should definitely be on your short list.
