TORRANCE, Calif. - Alpinestars this week announced its Fall 2012 lineup which includes something for every rider, especially riders that enjoy chugging Monster Energy drinks.
The Monster Energy brand highlights several items from the collection, including the M-series and GP-M gloves, the matching GP-M leather jacket for $499.95 MSRP (shown, right), and textile jackets like the T-Scream Air. Each piece in the Monster Energy range builds upon Alpinestars’ proven fit and protection but adds a dose of extreme sports styling. Dealers’ love of the branding may vary, but there’s no denying that there are a few MotoGP replicas begging for the rider to pick up the matching jacket.
For less-caffeinated riders looking for more practical all-weather riding apparel, Alpinestars introduces a variety of new touring gear.
Alpinestars is notable for its extensive use of the industry leading Gore-Tex material. Requiring a battery of specified tests before it can wear the Gore-Tex label, riding apparel that passes the testing regime is some of the best all-weather gear money can buy. In particular, we expect dealers to applaud Alpinestars for bring additional waterproof glove options from Europe, like the Jet Road and Tech Road Gore-Tex gloves. Year-round riders all know that finding the perfect foul weather glove can be a maddening experience.
Finally, Alpinestars continues to expand its ladies-specific apparel options with the new Vika line of matching gloves, jacket, pants and boots. The jacket, shown at left, has a retail price of $429.95. Designed for urban riders with an eye for fashion, the Vika lineup promises to bring the runway to the road.
