Alpinestars Viper Air Jacket

Posted on: May 24th, 2013 by Road Rider MCA

With its two main design facilities in Italy and in Torrance, California, Alpinestars is on the frontlines of where motorcycles and hot weather meet. And the Alpinestars Viper Air textile jacket is equipped to deliver major airflow and cool riding protection for Bay Area riders out on the asphalt this summer, too.

The Viper is incredibly light and comfortable, and with large mesh panels on the front and back and air intake panels on the lower arms, it flows a ton of air. All unnecessary bulk has been cut out of the Viper to keep it as lightweight as possible for summer riding. The cut is longer in the back for coverage and shorter in the front for comfort while riding. But as lightweight and comfortable as the Viper feels, it’s still fully protective. The elbows and shoulders feature Alpinestars CE-rated Bio-Armor, and the chest and back include foam padding that can be upgraded to CE-level protection as well.

Of course, the Viper shows off Alpinestars’ excellent style and cut, and looks great on and off the bike. Don’t overheat, yet again, this summer in that heavy jacket, but don’t go without protection either. Try on the Viper at Road Rider and experience how light a fully protective riding jacket can be.
