Alpinestars has launched a Limited Edition Kenny Roberts Sr. Supertech R boot at the Circuit of the Americas as a celebration of American racing.
King Kenny’s distinct riding style, honed on the dirt, redefined premier class motorcycle racing, with his kneedown style soon being adopted by the rest of the field.
King Kenny enjoyed 60 starts in 500cc racing, securing 24 wins, 44 podiums, 22 poles and 27 fastest laps as he dominated the class.
Regarded as a legend of the modern era, the Kenny Roberts Sr. Limited Edition Supertech R recognizes King Kenny’s racing success, his revolutionary riding style and his bravery. Featuring all of the technical innovations of Alpinestars’ class-leading Supertech R boot, the special colorway allows fans to enjoy a distinctive, premium race boot fit for Champions.
During the presentation of his Limited Edition Supertech R Boot, at the US MotoGP round, Circuit of the Americas, Kenny expressed his views on the boots and the design: “From the beginning, I needed boots that gave me good feeling and with these new boots, Alpinestars has always been able to keep the comfort level. It feels like a street shoe that is made for racing. That is hard to achieve and Alpinestars did a great job with this. For me, I want to put a boot on and not feel like I have one on, and that’s not easy to do. Not only do the boots look good, but they do a good job for what a rider needs.”
