The majority of motorcyclists are familiar with the brand Alpinestar garments and the high quality of the gear that the company manufactures for street, track, and dirt bike riders. They began as a manufacturer of ski and hiking boots in 1963, but eventually expanded into the production of performance racing gear. Since then, they have earned a reputation for providing gear that is not only comfortable but also fashionable and secure.
Their goods include boots, gloves, and one and two piece riding suits, all of which are manufactured from fabrics that are meant to keep the rider safe while also keeping the rider cool and comfortable.
Their footwear is available in a variety of hues, including the more common ones such as black, red, white, tan, grey, blue, and brown. The combination of suede and nylon construction, together with strategic padding, results in footwear that is not only pleasant to ride in but also offers a high degree of protection for the wearer’s feet.
Their gloves are manufactured from a material called Drystar that is both water resistant and breathable, which means that you are shielded from the elements without experiencing the uncomfortable sense of perspiration that is typical of clothing produced from materials that do not allow air to pass through.
Their riding suits are comprised of both Goretex and Drystar, which provides the rider with protection from the elements (as well as accidents) without sacrificing comfort.
Alpinestars conducts considerable research both on the track and in their laboratories to develop the most advanced gear possible for the riders of today, regardless of whether they compete on the track or on the road. This allows Alpinestars to consistently improve their products.
