Beat The Heat In Alpinestars

BY Road Rider MCA - May 13th, 2016

Visit us and ride out with gear from Alpinestars that will keep you cool and protected on the bike this summer.

Alpinestars is one of the top names in the business, and a brand synonymous with delivering high-level protection for motorcyclists, and for leading the way in style.

One of the big reasons we dig A-stars gear is that the company is always innovating and pushing ahead. For over fifty years Alpinestars has shown what is possible in the evolution of safety gear for motorcyclists. Every year, new and updated products are integrating competition-derived construction techniques, materials, and designs to improve the safety, comfort, and value of the gear we rely on.

The Alpinestars of 2015/2016 has been offering up awesome examples of that trifecta of safety, comfort, and value coming together beautifully. That’s exciting to see, and great for our wallets and bodies, too.

You can preview some highlights from our A-stars hot-weather gear selection, below, but be sure to stop by the shop to check out way more gear options for the summer from Alpinestars, Dainese, Rev’it, Joe Rocket, and more.




A better fit for more bodies, advanced protection, and perforated leather makes the GP Plus R a fantastic choice for hot weather and riders who like to lean in. Also in: the GP Pro Airflow.

Crashes don’t take the summer off, and neither should your protection. When it’s too hot to rock leather, turn to the Oxygen Air over pants.
