RED BUD, USA – Motocross of Nations is THE one event of the year where the best athletes in the world have the chance to compete all together, no matter what championship they are from – AMA Supercross, MXGP, National Championships – not only individually, but most importantly for the pride of the nations they represent. This is the “Olympics of Motocross” – this is the nation’s battle.
This year sees the spectacle return to American soil for the first time since 2010, and to celebrate the occasion Alpinestars has created the Limited Edition ‘Union 18’ Tech 7 boot and gear set. Featuring an iconic red, white and blue color scheme, the striking Limited Edition ‘Union 18’ gear allows Motocross fans to bring the same look and performance of the top racers at the MXON to their local track.
The Limited Edition ‘Union 18’ gear set has been designed to be paired with the ‘Union 18’ boots. The ‘Union 18’ Aviator gloves, Supertech jersey and pants feature the same technical innovations and performance as the rest of our motocross range, with the distinctive color combination allowing dirt riders to hit the track in a bold outfit that exudes style and confidence. Alpinestars Team USA riders Eli Tomac and Justin Barcia will be wearing the Union 18 LE during the competition.
Supertech is Alpinestars innovative new motocross apparel line, designed for superior racing performance.
With a new performance design for an athletic fit, a chassis consisting entirely of advanced stretch mesh and an ultra-lightweight construction, the Supertech Jersey is Alpinestars lightest ever MX jersey, featuring a host of race-proved technologies such as the innovative floating arm construction for superior freedom of movement and an extended back panel to maintain a flawless riding fit.
