The second-generation Alpinestars smx 6 v2 vented boots in 2022 have been meticulously improved without sacrificing the flexible performance and safety that made the originals a hit on the street and track. The ergonomics have been improved to provide greater anatomical accuracy. For enhanced flexibility and convenience, perforated accordion stretch panelling has been added to the forefoot and the rear of the knee.

The high modulus TPU bio-mechanical ankle support, injected shin guard, calf protector, heel counter, shift pad, and toe slider maintain the SMX 6 lineage’s race-bred protection. The heel counter and shin plate also contain air vents to keep the rider comfortable even in demanding situations.

The microfiber at the forefoot and top shaft has been ventilated for maximum ventilation in hot weather. Whether on the racetrack or the country roads, the Alpinestars SMX 6 V2 Vented Boots are built to provide uncompromised protection, skill, and efficiency.
