Alpinestars GP Tech V2 Leather Suit
Alpinestars’ GP Tech V2 suit is at the apex of today’s suit technology. Evolved from the original GP Tech suit, one that’s worn by top racers the world-over, sponsored and otherwise, you will not find a finer off-the-peg suit anywhere in the world. Refined with the help of Alpinestars athletes Marc Marquez, Maverick Vinales to name but two, when you slip one on for the first time, you’ll feel the quality of that workmanship right way.
Every suit is made using a combination of premium cowhide and kangaroo leather. In addition, aramidic stretch panels are located in all of the right places letting you move about freely. This particular fabric can be found in a variety of high-demand applications: from aerospace to bullet-proof vests, making it more than suitable for use as a flexible panel on this suit.
When you examine the shoulders, elbows, and knees on this suit, you’ll find purpose-engineered flexible plastic armor sewn into place. These pieces protect the most vulnerable, failure-prone areas of the suit and also, do double-duty as ventilators to help keep you cool on the track. Underneath these protectors, Alpinestars is sews-in an extra layer of leather, and reinforces the stitching to keep the suit together when the ride falls apart.
Most importantly, for the rider that’s serious about maximum protection, these suits are compatible with the Tech-Air Race system. An integrated LED display on the forearm provides at-a-glance air bag operational status. And of course, of the internal latch points are perfectly situated for a secure Tech-Air fit while maximizing comfort. It’s all there, ready for use. If you’re not yet in possession of a Tech-Air system, the suit is perfectly fine to use without one.
