Alpinestars GP Plus R

Posted on: April 5th, 2014 by Road Rider MCA No Comments

The all new Alpinestars GP Plus R perforated leather jacket offers incredible protection and fit for summertime riding. This high-quality, high-style jacket from Alpinestars comes in at a very nice sub-$500 price, so if you’ve already got a leather jacket but you’re always suffering on summer days, check out the GP Plus R and consider adding this excellent new ventilated jacket to your arsenal.

The GP Plus R features perforated leather on the front of the torso and arms to provide airflow. The large stretch panels on the arms also provide cooling ventilation, while the back of the jacket has multiple large panels of perforated leather to exhaust out hot air and moisture. The new GP Plus is extremely flexible and comfortable thanks to redesigned, longer vertical stretch panels behind the shoulders, the precurved sport fit, and the stretchy, soft collar introduced by Alpinestars last year. A nice upgrade for street riders, the Alpinestars logos on the forearms, back, and chest of the GP Plus R are embroidered instead of screen printed on.

The women’s Stella GP Plus R is also available at Road Rider. Click here for details.
