To celebrate San Diego’s military appreciation round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship, Alpinestars has released it’s latest Limited Edition range.
San Diego is the principal homeport of the Pacific Fleet, and in honor of U.S Armed Forces, the Limited Edition ‘San Diego 5 Star’ Tech 7 boot and gear set coincided with the race in San Diego. Inspired by the colors of the U.S Navy’s Top Guns, the boots and clothing feature a distinctive cool gray and bright red color scheme, complete with navy symbols and a warning triangle.
The CE certified Tech 7 is a technologically advanced and protective boot that incorporates innovative design materials in a streamlined boot for a lighter, more anatomically profiled performer. The ‘San Diego 5 Star’ blends all of the performance properties of the Tech 7 in an eye-catching cool gray and red colorway, as worn by Justin Barcia, Eli Tomac and Jason Anderson at the meeting, allowing Supercross fans to wear the same boots as their heroes.
The ‘San Diego 5 Star’ boots are complemented by matching Racer Tech jersey and pants and Radar glove, which all feature the same technical innovations and performance as every item in our motocross range. Designed to be worn with the ‘San Diego 5 Star’ Tech 7 boots, the striking outfit is a fitting tribute to America’s military personnel.
