Alpinestars 2014 Road Racing Gear
Héctor Barberá, Cal Crutchlow, Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez, Broc Parkes, Dani Pedrosa, Scott Redding are the MotoGP racers wearing Alpinestars on the track this year. Here's a sampling of the gear that was developed with help from the pros.
Racing Replica One-Piece Suit
The Racing Replica leather suit combines the very latest high-performance safety materials and advanced construction techniques, and it is compatible with Alpinestars electronic airbag safety system, the Tech Air.
Supertech R Boot
Forged on the racetrack, the Supertech R is Alpinestars top-of-the-line road-racing boot. The latest version of the Supertech features a redesigned inner bootie constructed from 3D technical mesh that further reduces the boot’s weight while greatly enhancing breathability, comfort and feel.
Bionic Neck Support Tech Carbon
Engineered to help prevent neck injury and minimize the risk of collateral damage, the Bionic Neck Support (BNS) Tech Carbon is constructed from an advanced carbon polymer for optimized frame strength and lightweight performance. The BNS Tech Carbon functions when the rider’s helmet makes contact with the frame at the moment of a crash, thus providing a clean, solid surface, which instantly channels damaging, compressive impact energy away from the neck and on to the BNS.
GP Tech Leather Glove
Featuring MotoGP- and WSBK-derived innovations, the GP Tech Glove features flexible compound knuckle protectors, an ergonomic cuff design and strategic reinforcement in the palm area.
Here's a video Alpinestars put together last year that takes Jorge Lorenzo around Austin in the runup to the 2013 Texas MotoGP.
