Yes, with the Alpinestars Race Replica One-Piece Motorcycle Suit we see the return of probably the most expensive off-the-peg-motorcycle-suit you can buy. Inspired by the exploits of the likes of MotoGP champion Casey Stoner, Alpinestars has had a re-think of their top-of-the-range motorcycle suit and improved it subtly for 2012. Racing really does improve the breed.
The Alpinestars Race Replica One-Piece Motorcycle Suit uses 1.2 and 1.4mm full grain cow hide, none of this fancy kangaroo stuff here. Stitching is multiple seam construction to avoid busting and tearing. The big visual difference in this new suit is the use of PU protection around the elbow (looking like irreplaceable elbow sliders for the nutters), shoulder and knee, giving the leather a helping hand. The 90-degree knee protection also supports the knee in the event of an accident. Thsi protection improves impact resistance by spreading forces better and then abrasion resistance is increased too. Kevlar stretch panels have been increased for added comfort. As some experts will put it. The neoprene coffs and collars match, giving you a much improved fit and raised comfort levels.
A Bionic back protector comes as standard, the anti-bacterial liner is removable, the motorcycle racing suits are treated to improve heat transfer and the chest gets PE padding – upgradeable to the Bionic chest guards. The Alphinestars Race Replica One-Piece Motorcycle Suit is available from US$ 1,900 (58,900 THB) up to US$ 2,500 (77,500 THB), so it's a huge chunk of money, but if you like to dress-up like Casey Stoner, there's no finer suit.
