    Suzuka ’91: Four title contenders enter the final lap mere feet apart. An all out battle, passes under braking so late you can not bear to look and the lead will change hands again and again. An inside line appears, barely an opening at all and the number 34 Suzuki dives in and makes the pass stick. When the checkered flag is waved the top four is decided by .556 of one second and Kevin Schwantz is victorious with a final lap battle that is cemented in MotoGP history.

    No one typifies the all-or-nothing, knife-edge, racing of the era like Kevin Schantz. Hailing from Houston, Texas, a background in motocross gave him the skills to battle shoulder to shoulder in the tight chicanes and historic corners of grand prix road racing with unique style.

    In 1993 he became World Champion wearing the legendary Alpinestars GP PRO boot and now to mark the 25th anniversary of that title, Alpinestars introduces the Limited Edition Kevin Schwantz Supertech R in a Kevin’s individual color way – an icon now just as it was back in the 1990’s.

    Designed and developed to the highest technical standards, the Supertech R Boots today represent the pinnacle of racing innovation for track and road use. Alpinestars’ most iconic sports boot, the Supertech R incorporates a whole host of performance innovations including a redesigned compound rubber sole, an ergonomically profiled shin plate, a redesigned front flex area, plus the pioneering dual torsion, bio-mechanical ankle brace – all of which enhance this CE certified boot.
