Reviews and tests 12 September, 2017

We analyze...

The Alpinestars Toucan Gore-Tex are boots with a touring character that stand out, among other aspects, because they are thought to make a mixed use road and offroad and to incorporate an innovative closing with buckles. In addition, the boots also incorporate a Gore-Tex membrane, ideal for long trips.

Construction and materials

The Alpinestars Toucan Gore-Tex are CE certified and are fully made in leather and suede, ensuring strength and lengthening the life of the boot.

In the instep and in the back of the boot we find wide zones in accordion. These panels provide us excellent comfort and support, both above and outside the bike.Tthese zones in accordion also help us to decrease the fatigue, while when we walk the sensation of freedom in the foot is greater.

Protections

In terms of safety is where we see more particularities in the Toucan Gore-Tex. The boots are really interesting, everything thought for us to think about the bike.

The innovative lateral ankle protection system is noteworthy. It is flexible and acts as an axis between the upper part of the boot and the lower part.

The inner side of the boot is contoured and has polymer reinforcements. This area offers maximum grip with the bike, in addition to protecting the heat it gives off, improving in comfort and safety when riding our motorcycle.

The inner heel and toe are covered by an advanced protective layer made of TPU, where we find the hardest areas of the boot, something obvious considering that are the parts that are most exposed to an impact, especially if you are riding in offroad areas. In addition, also at the toe, there is a leather covered panel just on the outer surface of the cavity of the fingers, designed to improve abrasion and cold resistance.

Finally, in terms of protections, we have a contoured polymer shin guard.

Inside

The Gore-Tex membrane is the highlight of the interior of the Toucan. This membrane ensures a waterproofness and perspiration of 100% and makes it a perfect boot for long trips and in all kinds of conditions.

The removable, anatomically profiled, EVA foam insole improves the comfort on the bike and when we walk. Just try them for a few seconds and you realize the comfort that implies this type of insole.

In addition, to improve ventilation, the boot has a collar made of breathable mesh, both outside and inside. At high speeds and on those hotter days we are really appreciated it.

Sole and closure

The sole, froma Skywalk brand, is designed to favor water evacuation and grip with the bike with a construction of hexagons.

But it is in the closure where we find the greatest novelty. And it is composed of an innovative locking system with buckles; includes high strength aluminum closing bridges. The opening system is very fast and its design of self-alignment makes it a simple but at the same time very precise closure. In addition, all buckles are easily replaceable.

Thanks to the wide entrance and the wide Velcro flap, putting on and taking off the boot is very easy.

In summary, with the Toucan Alpinestars has hit the key. The brand has managed to launch a very comfortable boot that offers great security thanks to the large number of protections. If we add to the Gore-Tex membrane we can say that we have a boots ideal for the more adventurous who do not give up the bike in any kind of conditions.
