Review: Alpinestars S-MX 6, from the track to the road

Reviews and tests 11 November, 2014

We analyze...

Are you looking for some boots that allow you to change from the track to the street without any problems?  The Alpinestars S-MX 6 respond to this need. After the S-MX Plus range, designed principally for track use, the S-MX 6 seek greater comfort for the user.

Therefore, we have before us some very versatile boots which provide greater comfort for the wearer all year round, with optimum protection on the track, as well as on the road.

Protection

On the exterior of the S-MX 6 we find various reinforcements around the more delicate areas of our feet. The outer sides have a TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) protection that covers the ankle. This material is also found in the slider, which is replaceable via a small screw fixing system that facilitates its change.

Obviously, the heel, calf and shin areas are protected with the same material, as well as the toe box, that has an inner reinforcement for greater protection and for lengthening its life. There is also a reinforcement on the instep for the shift lever.

The heel area and the front of the boot have an accordion design for greater flexibility.

Interior

Behind its Racing appearance, we have boots devised for all year round use and, therefore, seek greater warmth inside, vital for winter or harsh weather conditions.

The inner lining, made with breathable material, has a non-slip area on the ankle, which improves the hold on the foot, avoiding movement inside that could penalise feel when changing direction. The insole has a reinforcement for greater support in the arch area and also improves the foot’s protection.

Sole

The sole has an intelligent design that solves the drainage problem when travelling on wet surfaces. The inner area of the boot is completely flat, helping the hold on the go. The reinforce of the sole in the front area of the boot provides more resistance to that place.

Fastener

The fastener is a double zip system with an ample Velcro flap, which ensures a perfect fit and maximum flexibility. Thanks to this type of aperture, we can easily pull the boots on and off, another point in favour taking into account the daily use we might give them.

In short, here we have a product aimed at being the best compromise between performance on the track and covering the demands of the road, which makes them ideal boots for weekend getaways and sessions on the track all year round. Few boots could boast the same.

The S-MX 6 are available in a Gore-Tex version, which affords them greater ventilation without compromising their safety and durability. Also, the S-MX 6 are the only Alpinestars model that has a female version, with a wider shaft in order to improve the ergonomics of their wearers.
