New Alpinestars MX boot range

Alpinestars has unveiled its new Tech 10 boots, in what could be a direct response to the Fox’s new Instinct boot line. As well as being lower profile and lighter than previous incarnations, the new Tech 10 boasts enhanced shin blade protection and a more secure buckle system. The outcome is a more flexible boot which better protects against hyperextension, and which should require less adjusting once out on a bike. Astars work for years researching and developing these bad-boys, so it’s unlikely the changes are a knee-jerk reaction to the guys in California, but it’s good to see no-one’s resting on their achievements – and if you want a pair of pro-level boots you’ve got more options than ever. One of the best things to see is the technical breakthroughs working their way down the range into the mid and even entry level boots. The Tech 7’s have seen an update alongside the 10’s and share a lot of the advancements including the new buckle system and a reduced weight and profile. Even the Tech 3’s now use a bonded sole and offer better protection and flexibility than ever for a new rider. Check out the full range for yourself at

DBK’s X-Games Highlights

Twitch is one of our favourite riders, Dirt Bike Kidz is one of our favourite crews and X-Games is our favourite event. So as you might imagine then, we were pretty stoked when Twitch dropped an edit of DBK’s behind the scenes highlights from last month’s LA X-Games. Featuring practice runs, exclusive commentary and general dicking around – this is a cool peek behind the curtain and just another reason why the DBK crew are on top of their game.

Rock The Ramp

 FMX4Ever recently put on Rock the Ramp, a weekend of music, FMX and partying in Zelzate, Belgium. And boy did it go off! Check out the video to see 11 riders from six countries going at it in front of 2500 wild fans. Wish we’d have been there!

Libor Podmol FMX

 It shouldn’t be a secret by now. Here at Big Air Jam, we love Libor Podmol. The guy has some unmatched skills and a style that most riders would kill for. Well the dude just went even higher in our estimation after releasing this rear facing GoPro of him playing around at his home track in Czech Republic. Seriously, even when this guy is clowning around he’s still sick.
