Alpinestars was founded in 1963 but did not begin to manufacture motorcycle gear until the 90's. Today, the company is known world-wide for developing technical motorcycle racing products for MotoGP with leather suits, boots, gloves and protection worn by World Champions Nicky Hayden and Casey Stoner. Superior quality and protection have made Alpinestars the most sought-after line of street gear for today's generation of riders.
Motorcycle Racing Leathers
When it comes to motorcycle racing, track days and even aggressive canyon carving, nothing can beat the protection of a full set of leathers.
Leathers come in one piece suits, or two piece sets, which allow the jacket to zip into the pants. Professional motorcycle racers rock the one piece full leathers for stellar protection at high speeds, while some of your track day junkies will opt for the two piece suit which offers great protection, and the versatility to be able to slap on a jacket with a pair of jeans when opting for a suburban jaunt instead of a break-neck track session.
Cowhide leathers are widely considered the standard in the industry, but kangaroo leather is gaining popularity as a lighter-weight (slightly more expensive) alternative while offering the ultimate protection from abrasion.
Motorcycle riders race, dare and push adherence to the limit - Dainese is there to protect them. Established in 1972, Dainese has become a leader in protective street gear. By considering movement, high speed and freedom they have developed a line of leather jackets and suits that are effective enough to be worn today by nine-time World Champion MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi as well as some of the biggest names in motorcycle racing history.
"The desire for self-protection is practically unlimited. The desire to move freely is equally strong."
