3-time World Champion Marc Marquez and the Circuit of the Americas have quite the relationship. Since Marquez’s GP debut in 2013, Marc has won every GP of the Americas, set the circuit record in 2014, and set the fastest lap time at the track in 2015. This Spring, MM93 is headed back to Austin with the determination and skill to
secure his 5th consecutive win at the circuit.
To celebrate the supreme state of Marquez’s relationship with the GP of the America’s, Alpinestars has elected to dedicate a Limited Edition Supertech R boot to the champion. The Limited Edition ‘Republik’ Supertech R.
This Limited Edition ‘Republik’ Supertech R features all the same technical innovations as the iconic Supertech R, but will be available in a Limited Edition color-way. The ‘Republik’ Supertech R hosts a Red, White, and Blue color scheme fitting for the GP of the America’s. Lady Liberty, Stars, and the MM93 logo finish off the look. The result is a highly captivating premium race boot with a modern motorsports feel.
Alpinestars most iconic riding boot, worn by a roster of champions past and present, the Supertech R has undergone a series of evolutions to significantly ramp up its performance features even further. Innovations for 2015 include a newly redesigned compound rubber sole, an update to the ergonomically profiled shinplate and a redesigned front flex area – all of which enhancing the podium winning performance of this CE certified boot.

The Supertech R boot’s construction consists of durable and technical microfiber upper material that offers flexibility. The microfiber main shell offers durability, water-resistance, and improved weight savings while the redesigned front flex area is constructed from over-injected TPU over inject on breathable mesh with shaped reliefs for improved abrasion resistance and natural forward and back movements. The top gaiter follows leg contour and is made of flexible high-grade synthetic leather reinforced with PU. The sole is constructed of lightweight rubber compound that offers excellent grip and feel and allows for natural flex as the rider changes position and pressure on the foot-peg.
The Supertech R boot is CE certified to EN 13634:2010. The newly designed external TPU shin protection is ergonomically shaped and wraps around to the out calf and is engineered to spread and dissipate impact energy across the entire surface while remaining compact. The toe slider is integrated with co-injected TPU/Aluminum and features a new easy screw fixing concept that provides feel and protects the outer tow box structure from abrasion.
The replaceable polymer heel plate sliders also protect from impact and reduces friction in the event of a crash.
Other key features include the flexible accordion microfiber stretch at the Achilles, a full-length, medial-facing panel, a flexible, lightweight toe shifter, a separate internal bio-mechanical ankle brace, an external entry with a stretch accordion panel, Velcro tabs, and a shin plate with micro-adjustable ratchet.
There is also a vented version that has strategically positioned ventilation in the heel and the shin TPU guides air through the boot.
