The biggest upgrade is safety-oriented, and will be great news to riders. The SMX-6 v2 Boots now have hard armor on the medial side of the ankle bone. In addition to that, the TPU ankle brace system has been refined to further limit lateral flex while still allowing the foot to move up and down freely. From a comfort perspective, there are new, larger bellows which come further down the instep, making the boots a little easier to walk around in. Lastly, Alpinestars improved the sole on the SMX-6 v2 Boots to be stickier in all situations - on the bike, off the bike, in the wet, and in a dusty garage or paddock.
