Alpinestars Race Replica Suit. Equipped with all the features that pro racers require, the Alpinestars Race Replica has one huge feature that sets it apart from the rest: the ability to retrofit with the Tech Air Airbag system, providing riders the ultimate in safety. Beyond that, you've got premium 1.3mm full-grain leather loaded with perf, CE rated race-derived armor at shoulders, elbows, knees and tibia, high modulus external TPU protectors at the shoulders, elbows, and knees, and fully replaceable sliders. This suit is the absolute top of the line from AStars.
Alpinestars AST-1 WP Jacket - complementing the brand new AST-1 WP pants that dropped last fall, the new AST-1 WP Jacket is stylish and subtle, with an abrasion-resistant shell, CE rated shoulder and elbow armor, a waterproof breathable membrane and a fully removable full-sleeved quilted thermal liner. Additional features include a 360º zip for pants connection, hi-viz reflective piping, and adjustability at the waist and wrist.

Alpinestars T-Fuel WP Jacket - the brand new T-Fuel is a unique option from AStars with a wavy stripe that decorates the chest of its brushed, PU-coated polyamide shell. Touting a fully waterproof breathable membrane, the Alpinestars T Fuel WP Jacket has CE rated bio armor in the shoulders and elbows, a removable full-sleeved quilted thermal liner and a 360º zip for pants connection. There is also reflective piping for night-time riding and adjustability at the neck, waist, and wrist. This jacket is ideal for a naked or classic rider.

Alpinestars GP Plus Perforated Leather Jacket - the GP Plus Perf jacket takes all of the features that made the GP Plus extremely popular but add a sorely-lacking feature: a full perf scheme. Beyond that, you'll find all of the features that have made the GP Plus popular: 1.3mm full grain cowhide, adjustable CE rated Bioarmor at shoulders and elbows, pockets for chest and back armor, excellent ergonomics and a snap system for the CE Level 2 Bionic Race Back Protector. Another winner in their leather lineup.
