The all-new Supertech M8 helmet is the result of more than five years of intensive study, development and testing. Based on Alpinestars’ five decades of protection development, we scrutinized every possible aspect to engineer a helmet that is safer and more thoughtfully designed than anything else.
SHELL CONSTRUCTION: Multi-layer composite disperses energy in impacts.

FOUR DENSITY EPS LINER: The right density in the right area.

SIZE: Each head size has a dedicated shell and EPS dimensions.

LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION: Medium size weighs in at 1260g (ECE), 1379g (DOT).

A-HEAD FITMENT SYSTEM: Patented system provides ultimate adjustability.

PATENTED VISOR RELEASE SYSTEM: Allows visor to release in a crash with the correct pre-determined amount of force, regardless of angle of impact.

PROTECTIVE DESIGN: Engineered raised and padded area reduces forces transmitted to the collarbone.

ULTRA-VENTILATED DESIGN: Visor directs air into ports for added breathability.

MULTI-DIRECTIONAL IMPACT PROTECTION SYSTEM®: Exclusive multi-piece MIPS® system reduces rotational impact forces.

EPS EMERGENCY RELEASE SYSTEM: Safely and easily remove cheekpads while the helmet is still on.

26MM WIDE CHINSTRAP: Wider than certification requirements for safety, comfort and ease of use.
The Tech 10 has set the standard for Motocross boot performance and protection for over a decade. The completely re-designed Tech 10 boot raises the performance envelope even further. While it maintains the iconic look of its predecessor, every single piece has been redesigned and tested on our top Supercross and Motocross athletes. The Tech 10 overhaul had three important priorities: functionality, performance and safety. Creative construction techniques with lighter, more durable composite materials yield a slimmer and more streamlined boot. The new Tech 10 has a greater range of movement, flexibility and support in a considerably lighter package.

Engineered to prevent hyper-extension while offering improved impact resistance.
Compact dual pivot torsion arms offer increased range of movement and control.
Exclusive Dynamic Heel Compression Protector (DHCP) is a patented collapsible poly-foam shock absorber in the heel area designed with the intent to reduce theeffects of excessive energy transferred to the heel bone, for example in the case of ejecting from the bike and landing standing up.
Ultra-thin and flexible forefoot area offers increased feel and control of brake and shifter.

Provides improved footpeg grip as well as mud and water run-off.
Over 400 grams (almost 1lb) in weight reduction over its predecessor.
