The Alpinestars Carver One Piece Leather Suit retails for  799.95
The new Carver One Piece Suit has everything you need for tearing up the track or the canyon.
Summer is a time for the cold drinks, barbecues, sunburns and of course...the launch of Alpinestars Fall line of motorcycle gear. For 2011, the Italian brand has a slew of new gear to keep you safe and comfortable whether you’re on the road, track or any combination of the two.


New for 2011, the $799.95 Carver One Piece leather suit aims to give riders all of the latest race suit technology at an awesome price point. The Carver is constructed of 1.3mm full-grain leather, utilizing high-density perforations in the front panel for airflow and Aramidic fiber stretch panels on the torso, arms, crotch and back of the knees for an optimal fit. One noteworthy feature is the utilization of lightweight mesh in the calf panels, giving you a more breathable and comfortable fit below the boot. The Carver also sports CE certified GP protectors in the elbows, shoulders, and knee-shin area. Just like A-stars’ other race suits, the Carver has a snap-in connection for the Bionic Race Back Protector and utilizes polyurethane sport knee sliders.

The Carver suit is also available as a two-piece option for the same price. The jacket and pant combo has the same features of the one-piece Carver, but uses a full-circumference zipper to attach the two. The Carver jacket also features some very practical hidden side pockets.

The Alpinestars T-GP-Plus Jacket retails for  219.95
The T-GP-Plus Jacket offers race-ready styling in a lightweight package.

The race-inspired styling of Alpinestars’ GP-Plus Leather Jacket is now available in a non-leather option, the T-GP-Plus Textile Jacket. At $219.95, The T-GP-Plus gives sport riders a more budget-conscious and lightweight option while retaining safety features like elbow and should Bio Armor and padding in chest and back areas. The T-GP-Plus is also very practical, with zippered vents, a removable liner, and 5 pockets.

For commuters and urban warriors, A-stars has released updated versions of its popular Messenger Waterproof Jacket ($229.95) and Verona Waterproof Jacket ($199.95).


The Alpinestars Supertech R Boots retail for  449.95The Alpinestars S-MX Plus Boot retails for  349.95
Both the Supertech R (above) and S-MX Plus (below) get updates to improve safety and comfort.
Alpinestars race-bred Supertech R Boot receives an update for the Fall of 2011 with an all-new inner ankle brace. The new brace has a redesigned Bio-mechanical dual hinge to better mimic the natural motion of the ankle and provide more support in the event of hyper-extension. The brace also features new 3D mesh for more air-flow and a reinforced toe area for even more protection. The new Supertech R comes in sizes 6-12.5 US (39-48 EUR) and retails for $449.95.

Also receiving updates is A-stars performance boot, the S-MX Plus. The $349.95 S-MX Plus gets a new Multi Link Control system which translates to better support for your ankles against hyper-torsion and hyper-extension. Similar to the new color ways in Alpinestars’ Touring Gear, both the Supertech R and S-MX Plus are available with hi-viz yellow accents.

If race-ready footgear isn’t your thing, A-stars has some updates and additions to its road riding boots and shoes as well. All new for the fall is the CR-4 Gore-Tex XCR Boot. On the outside, the CR-4 has standard hiking boot features like a waterproof Gore-Tex membrane, leather construction, and all-terrain sole. But under the hood there’s a steel shank, reinforced toe-box, and ankle support for more moto-specific protection.

The Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-tex XCR Boots retail for  199.95The Alpinestars Fastlane Shoes retail for  119.95The Alpinestars S-MX 1 Boots retail for  159.95
With the new line of boots, Alpinestars has the style and performance to match almost any rider, both on and off the bike.

With obvious driving shoe DNA, the $119.95 Fastlane Shoe is making its US debut this fall. Already popular in Europe and Japan, the Fastane features plenty of safety features like external toe and ankle protection, but manages to fit them all in to a sleek package thats sure to be comfortable both on and off the bike.
The Alpinestars GP Plus Leather Pants retail for  399.95
GP styling and performance is
now available below the waist
with the GP-Plus Leather Pants.

Along with the all-new boots, the tried and true $159.95 S-MX 1 Boot gets a new look, more protection, and a few tweaks to help air-flow.


Below the waist, Alpinestars offers up the all new GP Plus Leather Pants for performance riders. The new pants are constructed of 1.3mm full-grain leather and feature accordion flex zones for better mobility. Safety features include a once piece GP-R knee/shin protector as well as padding in the rear and hips. The GP Plus pants also come in “Long” and “Short” versions, with a 3/4” variation in the inseam to better fit taller and shorter riders. The GP Plus pants use A-star’s sport knee sliders and retail for $399.95.

The Alpinestars Weed Puller Glove retails for  69.95
The Weed Puller Glove perfectly mixes classic style and contemporary safety.


Alpinestars’ new Weed Puller glove is an homage to the motocross gear of old. The $69.95 glove is constructed of externally stitched leather for excellent comfort and a classic look. The soft TPR knuckle-armor and throwback logo should make the Weed Puller a practical piece of motorcycling nostalgia. 

The Alpinestars Stella Anouke One Piece Leather Suit retails for  799.95
The Stella Anouke Leather Suit
is engineered to fit a lady's shape
and style.


A-stars didn’t forget the ladies either.

All items include the same features as the guy’s gear, but include a little extra material in the obvious places and some more ladylike styling throughout.
