From the beginning, Alpinestars has had a reputation for quality, durability, and dependability. Founded by a leather craftsman with a perfectionist mindset, the brand has been outfitting and protecting top motorcycle racers for over half a century with unmatched precision.
That attention to detail and high standard of performance that made Alpinestars so revolutionary back then is still evident today. Fabrics, plastics, and finished products are still rigorously tested before being mass-produced. Race suits are still hand-cut. Quality inspections are completed on varying products before they leave the warehouse.
Continued tradition doesn’t come at the cost of innovation, though. Alpinestars is an industry leader in safety, constantly refining products and viewing protection as an ever-evolving state of development. This mindset is how they’ve developed progressive products like the Tech-Air Airbag Vest, and is how they’ll continue to redefine rider safety for years to come.
With gear available for every riding discipline, Alpinestars provides the versatility that modern riders need. Their ever-expanding collection includes pieces like the Supertech M10 Helmet, Tech 10 Boots, Bionic Neck Support, GP Leather Jacket, Andes Drystar Pants, and more, all with the same standard of protection, quality, and durability. Whatever you ride, wherever you ride, Alpinestars has something for you.

Incredible fit, fantastic protection! I went down hard on a track that had a lot of rocks. This jacket protected my elbows and front amazingly! Three riders decided to stop on the track in a spot where you couldn’t see them until last minute. Not to smart. Just got into 3rd gear saw them and slid out so I wouldn’t hit them. (450 Yamaha) I was pretty pissed. But the v2 jacket really did protect me from injury. I highly recommend this jacket!!! Well worth the money and it is very well made.Read All Reviews

Bought this because I wanted a high-quality jacket with hard plastic protection. Read some pretty bad reviews about the durability of comparable Leatt and Fox options, and the Bionic Tech V2 jacket didn't have hard plastic on the elbows. The good: comfortable, fits perfectly (ordered a medium per sizing guide), vents very well such that I don't overheat in it, easy to clean (with Simple Green and a big plastic bin), shoulder and elbow armor is sized especially well. The bad: I really wish it had rib protection, and more shoulder blade protection (not a lot there). After 4 riding days (plus a couple of quick rides), the zipper is acting more finicky than I had hoped, although not causing major problems yet.Read All Reviews

I never felt fully protected with a roost guard while trail riding and knew that I needed full sleeve and back protection for crashing and branches. As a female rider, I was hesitant about the women’s specific fit and durability at first, but I’m so glad I purchased this. It doesn’t feel as hot as I thought it would and the impact foam forms to my body as it warms up. The quality, design, breathability and protection is worth the investment! I bought a men’s long sleeve protector before this and it didn’t feel as comfortable or fit as well as this. I wear a medium and I’m 5’5” with a small chest and small arms. This size is slightly loose on me, but it’s comfortable. I don’t think I’ll ever switch back to a roost guard after using this. Highly recommend!Read All Reviews
