I have the newer version of the SMX Plus that I bought from [URL="http://www.motocard.com/en/boots/boots-alpinestars-s_mx_plus_n.aspx"]these guys[/URL]. Nice snug fit and comfy as hell.

Top class boot!
1st boot in the world to get CE approval...
made a few miles away from SIDI and share a good few parts with them!
renamed because alpinestars were loosing money so they went after them for the star in the name :rolleyes2:
a top class boot go for it you will only be happy boss!

I'm using the TCX s zero boot at the mo an no complaints, but their a bit errr, crash damaged lol.

They look class :thumbsup2:
I have a pair of Alpinestars SMX R Goretex boots and they're the job.
Really comfy on the bike and fully waterproof.
They'd be very similar to the SMX Plus AFAIK.

They are the brand new top of the range pair. there is an air pump at the top to customise the fit

For that kind of cash you'll find 2011 pairs of Alpinestars Supertech R, try bikersbargains.co.uk or FC-Moto.de. I picked up a pair at a bike show for 200 sterling....can thoroughly recommend them.

Re: New TCX RS2 Race Boots
 
have the smx and they are unreal comfy, very squeeky.
ordered a pair of smx goretex just there a while ago,
was trying the sidi but just couldnt get any that were comfy,
saw tcx but they looked very bulky

Re: New TCX RS2 Race Boots
 
So by the sounds of it everyone's kinda saying give the TCX a go? Yeh I don't like the idea of all the straps an all on he sidi boots. So these or the the supertech r's??

Sounds good but if I'm going TCX again it has to be the ones above, feel like spoiling myself! LoL!

So its down to one of these two!

them TCX boots look way better though, they are fucking class looking..

Re: New TCX RS2 Race Boots
 
TCX, they only do boots.
I'd pick a company who specialise in only one thing & do it excellently over a company who do a bit of everything fairly well. :thumbsup2:

Re: New TCX RS2 Race Boots
 
The Metatarsal Control System on the TCX RS 2 is injected with carbon, very trick :thumbsup2:
As stated above, TCX were the 1st to have CE approved boots which is a testament to their safety standards :cool3:

I've had a few pairs of TCX Competizione RS's.
The right boots inside ankle support seperated while I was on track and got hooked on my right rear set heel guard just as I was setting up for an 80mph right hander, I couldn't move my foot at all...scared the shoite outta me and I ran way off into the dirt/sand @ Chuckwalla Valley Raceway. I came in & superglued the fecker and went right out again.
Still wearing the TCX Competizione RS even though I've a brand spankin new SMX+'s.
Great boots, I'd buy 'em again once I wear out the current collection.

I have a pair of A'stars SMX Plus and they are awesome in every way, comfy, supportive, top quality, look class and provide good support to the ankle when riding. I'd be going A'stars if i were you! Will match your new gloves too :)

Both pairs of Alpinestars SMX i had squeeked like a bastard!!! Zip broke after a couple of months on the second pair, won't be buying then again!

Supertech R or TCX for me next time around!

Re: New TCX RS2 Race Boots
 
little squirt of WD40 into the hinge on the boot cures the squeaking!
