Alpinestars Stella GP Plus R Jacket

Posted on: April 28th, 2014 by Road Rider MCA No Comments


The new Stella GP Plus R is a totally redesigned leather sport jacket for women in the Alpinestars collection, and it’s our favorite new sport jacket for women. Protective and comfortable for the street or track, the Stella GP Plus R executes beautifully – and looks good in the process.

The fit of the Stella GP Plus R is a new one for women’s Alpinestars leather jackets, and from what we’ve seen so far, it’s a better fit for more women. The body of the jacket is a slightly slimmer and longer cut which gives riders a bit more coverage around the waist and across the lower back, especially when tucked over on a sportbike. The contoured design on the jacket front gives a flattering fit from top to bottom and looks less boxy around the torso. The arms are precurved for the riding position, and bigger accordion flex panels behind the shoulders and elbows provide stretch and mobility where you need it most. Large panels of stretch fabric run the length of the arms and provide a snug, comfortable fit in the sleeve.

The main construction of the Stella GP Plus R uses solid leather panels while strategically placed panels on the front and back have small perforations to provide some airflow. Zippered vents on the shoulders can also be opened up when you do need that ventilation boost.

We love the fact that Alpinestars has delivered a high performance leather jacket for women that looks great, fits great, and comes in the color red! The Stella GP Plus R also comes in a black and white combination. Both colorways feature attractive and sporty contrast vertical panels along the chest and back. Embroidered logo hits on the chest, arms, and lower back elevate the jacket’s styling.

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