NEW! Alpinestars Women’s Stella Francie Jacket
The Alpinestars Stella Francie Jacket for women is new for Fall 2013 and part of Alpinestars’ RideOut Collection of urban riding jackets. It’s a light and warm down-style insulated jacket with CE protection in the shoulders and elbows, and is perfect for every part of your busy day.
Whether you’re on the bike or on the town, the Francie’s polyester insulation provides an effective barrier from penetrating cold and wind. An internal waist gaiter (snow-skirt) can be snapped around the waist to prevent wind travelling up your back while you ride. Yet another detail we love is the thumb holes in the soft sleeve cuffs to keep the wind out and your hands nice and warm.
Of course, we also love the impact protection on the shoulders and elbows that will keep you protected when you’re on the bike. The armor is sleek, but removal is quick and easy if you prefer to go without it on days you aren’t riding. The Francie also comes with a foam back protector that can be upgraded with an optional CE-rated back protector.
