Alpinestars Racing Absolute Race Suit For Tech Air Race

The Alpinestars Racing Absolute Race Suit For Tech Air Race borrows the design, materials and technology that protects MotoGP racers so you can ride with top of the line protection. Add in the Tech Air Race Vest (sold separately) to get the sensors, airbag and protection similar to that of a professional racer. Premium kangaroo leather is abrasion resistant and lighter than its bovine counterpart. Accordion stretch panel inserts increase your range of motion while also allowing for the airbag to inflate unhindered. A series of LEDs on the sleeve signals the airbag vest’s status so you know if all systems are go. Stretch textile around the groin, underarms and legs make it easier to ride in the tuck position. Leather reinforced with aramid at the common sliding areas help reduce heat transfer should you ever find yourself sliding across the pavement. CE rated armor disperses any impact energy at your elbows, shoulders, hips and knees.
