The front area and the Achilles heel area feature a flexible accordion construction for optimum comfort and control. In addition, the toe has an internal reinforcement under the top layer for better protection and comfort.
Alpinestars has been specially designed to protect the foot and part of the leg. That's why the new S-MX 6 V2 have new design TPU reinforcements in the upper area of the shank, both the shin and the back, in addition to the heel.
But the great novelty compared to the previous model is the increase of protection in the ankle. We have TPU protection that acts as a biomechanical support between the upper part of the calf and the ankle, but it facilitates at the same time the movement of the ankle thanks to its double anchorage. And to this has been added an internal double density protector, located between the top and the lining. It isn't visible, but certainly improves the the ankle protection.
