Southwick, Massachusetts - The Outdoor Nationals make their yearly trip to the nation's birthplace for the only New England stop of the series. A labor of love for the American Legionnaires that built the track behind the now famous Post 338, the track boasts deep sand and terrain rugged enough to test the meddle of any would-be champion. Originally hewn from the countryside in 1972, the track made its official "Nationals" debut in 1976 with Alpinestars' Oscar rider Pierre Karsmakers winning the inaugural event. More than four decades after Alpinestars stood atop the podium, heritage stylings are back in Southwick with the Limited Edition 'Union' Tech 10.
Synergizing modern, high-viz colors with heritage graphics, the 'Union' joins Alpinestars' prodigious innovation with its extensive history. Sure to turn heads in the sand or in the pits, the 'Union' features a high-viz yellow and turquoise upper, grey lower chassis with a red rear. Accenting the boots are the Alpinestars heritage logos that date back to the time of the track's founding.
The world's most technologically advanced and protective motocross boot, the Tech 10 offers unrivaled race-winning performance to moto riders who demand nothing less than the best. The Limited Edition 'Union' Tech 10 fuses all the performance innovations of the iconic Tech 10 with a unique color combination. The result is a boot that not only knows its history, but isn't afraid to make some.
