Tester Andy Calton Time tested One year/1500 miles What’s good? Th­ese boots had a tough act to fol­low. I’ve used the TCX RS-2S for a few years and loved them so much I re­ally didn’t want to let them go, but with a few scuffs and scrapes it was time to move on. The Alpines­tars S-MX 6 are ac­tu­ally a sim­i­lar boot. Ver­sa­tile, comfy and wa­ter­proof - thanks to the Gore-tex liner - they are breath­able and keep feet warm when it’s cold but not too sweaty in the sum­mer. For such a top boot, from such a top brand, th­ese are great value and are show­ing no signs of wear yet. Hunt around and you can find th­ese for £150 – what a

bar­gain! What’s not? I find the shin pro­tec­tion a lit­tle bulky and I strug­gle to pull my rid­ing jeans on over the top. I love flares as much as the next man, but man this is get­ting heavy!
