Alpinestars Tech 1-KX Kart Shoe Lacing

Alpinestars knows racing footwear, from Formula 1, to Rally, to LeMans, to the highest in elevation and most challenging track at Atlanta Motorsports Park. Using Alpinestars trickle down technology flow, your Alpinestars Tech 1-KX shoe has the proven Alpinestars asymmetrical lacing pattern for the perfect contouring affect. If yo look closely, you will see that not only are the lace mounts (holes) not even with each other from left to right, they are also unevenly spaced from top to bottom. By using a human form technique, you will soon realize the fastest laps turned anywhere are with Alpinestars footwear.

Alpinestars Tech 1-KX Kart Shoes Sole

It does not matter how comfortable a shoe is if there is no pedal feedback. Karts are one of most purest forms of racing. No suspension, no electric-power steering, no power brakes, just raw mechanical perfection. The sole of your Alpinestars Tech 1-KX is firm where it needs to be (heel cup), but thin and pliable (fore foot) for the ultimate threshold braking leading into the perfect trail-brake entry to the apex. 

Alpinestars Tech 1-KX Kart Shoes Heel

Alpinestars know how important the heel-cup is in karting. Actually it is more important in karting then racing LeMans in a prototype. Your heel in karting is the pivot point of where every ankle action starts from, acceleration and brake. A fast kart racer is flat past the apex, but before there, we load the engine to raise RPM so upon brake release, the driveline load is smooth, resulting in a faster corner exit speed. A hi-grip heel; that follows the natural foot shape, is what makes Alpinestars the number one selling brand in kart shoes.
