The 6 Million Dollar Man would be proud. So would Luke Skywalker’s hand… and basically all of Darth Vader. We are finally catching up to where each of these legendary figures have been for decades. Thanks to Alpinestars, we are all about to go bionic!
The new Alpinestars Bionic Pro Jacket is a simple, easy, and totally awesome addition to any off-road gear closet. It is 2015 after all. We want our lives to be streamlined and hassle-free. So too do we want our motorcycle gear to follow suit. With the Bionic Pro jacket, Alpinestars makes a one-stop option for motocross riders in search of a great piece of protective gear. With rugged polymer blend protection at the chest and back that allow for total range of motion, slim-lined CE protectors at the shoulders and elbows, premium locking YKK zippers, thermoformed padding at the kidneys for secure/comfortable fit, and an athletic fitment to hold everything in place, the Bionic Pro jacket provides riders with an under-the-jacket piece of gear that goes a long way.
If the Bionic Pro is a little robust for your needs, not a problem. The Alpinestars Bionic Plus Jacket offers the same functionality, yet with a lighter arsenal of protection throughout. Constructed of a technical elastane stretch mesh that is both highly-breathable and shape-holding, the minimalist construction not only keeps the garment light and agile, but it also holds the protectors firmly in place while also promoting a ton of airflow throughout. The Bionic Plus jacket utilizes EVA compound protectors throughout the torso, rather than the polymer blend that is seen in the Bionic Pro and allows for a great deal of comfort with a reduced price.
Not to leave out the lady riders, the Alpinestars Stella Bionic Jacket takes the same ethos as the first two jackets, and provides the same functionality and protection for women riders. From the CE certified back protector, to the polyurethane protectors at the shoulders and elbows, locking YKK zippers, and compatibility with the BNS, the Stella Bionic is everything that the Men’s versions are. The difference is that it has been specifically crafted to fit a more feminine cut, thus allowing women riders to better utilize the features and fun that these jackets provide. Additionally, there is even an Alpinestars Youth Bionic Jacket for the youngsters out there looking to get their start on two wheels.
Bionic. It is the way to be. We have the technology. Fortunately, however, you don’t need $6 million or intergalactic connections to make it yours thanks to Alpinestars.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
