Alpinestars Motegi Suit

Posted on: July 15th, 2013 by Road Rider MCA

The Alpinestars Motegi is an excellent suit for street and track riders, and for their wallets. Alpinestars has woven high-end features into a light and flexible suit, and they’ve given it a sub-$1000 price tag. The Motegi is full of Alpinestars experience and quality, so it’s a great pick for seasoned riders looking to replace an old suit as well as riders looking for their first suit.

If you’re thinking about taking some trips to Thunderhill or Buttonwillow this year, the Motegi’s perforated leather throughout will keep you cooler in our smoking hot local track temps. Abundant stretch fabric on the arms, torso, and legs allows air to flow through the suit in key flex areas, while providing comfortable expansion for a custom-feeling fit.

Alpinestars has brought the mesh neck design from their top-of-the-line track suit, the Atem, to the Motegi Suit, as well as to their newest jackets like the Celer and the Jaws. The padded mesh neck is contouring and breathable, and provides comfort in an area that is often irritated and hot, especially in the hunched sport position.

The Motegi is an amazing value for a first-rate Alpinestars suit. Particularly suited for California climes, the Motegi is well ventilated, flexible, and supremely contouring for maximum comfort at the track or on the street.
