Since moving to Movistar Yamaha for 2017, Maverick Vinales has proved his premier class credentials with strong race wins at the MotoGPs of Qatar and Argentina. Fusing a unique riding style with power, poise and pace, the Spaniard is more than living up to his namesake expression "Maverick" — he's redefining it. The first European stop of the 2017 MotoGP Championship takes place in Jerez, Spain: the country of Maverick's birth. To celebrate his individualist talent and pure speed, Alpinestars has created the Limited Edition 'Mach 1' Supertech R, a 2017 Maverick Vinales race replica.

The Limited Edition 'Mach 1' Supertech R, which Maverick will wear for the Jerez MotoGP, features all the same technical innovations as the iconic Supertech R and is available in a limited edition colorway scheme (grey, red, and black), resulting in a unique premium race boot that is built for speed. Alpinestars’ most iconic road riding boot worn by a roster of the fastest world champions past and present, the Supertech R features performance innovations, including a redesigned compound rubber sole, an ergonomically profiled shin plate and a redesigned front flex area.
